Day 01: Arrival

Reykjavik IcelandWelcome to Iceland! Once you arrive at Keflavik International Airport, you will be welcomed by our private chauffeur who will transfer you to your accommodation in the center of Reykjavik. We suggest that you use your free afternoon to explore the city or visit one of the museums of Reykjavik. After you get a first impression of the capital, you will spend the night in your accommodation for the next days, a wheelchair friendly hotel with spacious, handicap- accessible room and bathroom with roll in the shower.

Sites recommended in Reykjavik: Hallgímskirkja church, National Museum, Laugavegur shopping street, Harpa concert and conference center, old harbor of Reykjavík

 

Day 02: Private Guided Golden Circle Tour

wheelchair strokkurIn the morning your private guide picks you up from your hotel and you start your day by driving to Þingvellir National park. The park is an excellent example of the uniqueness of the Icelandic Nature, which is why it was included in UNESCO´s World Heritage list in 2004 and has a lot to offer to its visitors. The paths in Þingvellir are very well and most of the places are easily reachable by wheelchair. Your guide will show you the best places and after exploring the treasures of the park, you will head south to see Geysir Spouting Spring. You will have the chance to see Strokkur, one the most famous geysers of Iceland. It erupts every 4–8 minutes at approximately 5 – 20 m high, sometimes even up to 40 m! The Geysir is easily accessible. Last stop of your Golden Circle tour is Gullfoss (the Golden Waterfall), which is undoubtedly the country’s most famous waterfall. On the way back to Reykjavík you visit Kerið an old volcano crater filled with water.

Highlights: Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir, Kerið

 

Day 03: Free day in Reykjavík

Westfjords of IcelandAfter a day full of images of the Icelandic nature, we suggest that you today explore Iceland’s biggest city and the world´s northernmost capital. Reykjavik is an exciting city with a rich cultural life. You should not miss the chance to visit some of the city´s landmarks, museums, and exhibitions. We recommend you a guided tour in Harpa, the modern concert hall that opened in 2010 to learn all about the glass facade designed by Olafur Eliasson, discover the ideas behind the stunning architecture, and explore the building’s various halls. In the afternoon you can join an optional whale watching tour, where you have the chance to see mainly minke whales and dolphins. Checking the weather forecast in advance is always a good idea, to make sure the sea is relatively calm on this day. Ask at the hotel reception to ensure an enjoyable an accessible whale watching experience!

Highlights: Harpa concert and conference center, guided tour in Harpa (optional), whale watching tour (optional)

 

Day 04: Private Guided Tour Reykjanes and Blue Lagoon

The first stop for the day will be Seltún (Krýsuvík) where boiling mud pools and colorful mountains can be found. Your next stop for today will be the unique Blue Lagoon. That is by far the most relaxing experience of your Icelandic holidays! Being perfectly accessible to everyone, the Blue Lagoon contains special changing rooms, a pool access lift and special wheelchairs for the lagoon itself. The deepest part of Blue Lagoon is around 1.60m/5.2ft ft but most parts of the lagoon are far shallower.  In the late afternoon, your guide drives you back to the capital where you can enjoy dinner in one of the many restaurants in the center and enjoy your last night in Iceland.
