Itinerary

On arrival, our shuttle bus is ready to pick you up from Keflavik airport to make sure you get safely to your hotel in the center of Reykjavik. Take some time to spend the rest of the day to get settled and to explore the Icelandic capital.

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel and get ready for an exciting day, as today is the day that you will explore Reykjavik and its delicacies on foot! During a Reykjavik food tour, you will try samples of true authentic Icelandic food, whilst getting a taste for the culture at the same time. Taste at least 10 different traditional foods and learn about local traditions from your expert guide! During the rest of the day, we can suggest you to either explore Reykjavik on your own, or we can recommend a visit to the Sky Lagoon. This is the new luxury geothermal lagoon, located oceanside, only minutes away from Reykjavík’s city centre!

After breakfast, it is time to say goodbye to city life for now, but do not worry, you will replace it for the Icelandic nature instead! Collect your rental car for the next days in Reykjavik city centre (not included) and drive along the highlights of the Golden Circle. Thingvellir national park, Gullfoss waterfall and the infamous Geysir are all natural highlights of Iceland that should not be missed. In the afternoon you will reach your accommodation for the coming nights, Torfhus Retreat. Here, you will live in your own private torf house, just like the vikings did back in the day! Torfhús Retreat is also in an incredible location for observing the northern lights due to its isolated location and zero light pollution. Watching the northern lights or simply stargazing on a cold winter night from the warmth of your own geothermally heated basalt stone pool weaves a magic that will leave no guest unchanged.

Whilst enjoying your breakfast at this special retreat, you are already getting excited for the upcoming day. As you will have the opportunity to explore the surroundings of your accommodation even further. Besides the diverse landscapes of the Highlands and the South Shore being within close range of Torfhús Retreat, you will also have the option to participate in a wide range of activities that can be arranged by the hotel. These activities are optional, but surely unforgettable. To give a small insight into the offerings, you could go helicopter sightseeing, glacier walking, snowmobiling, or snorkeling between tectonic plates! Note: we are more than happy to offer optional activities to you!

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel and you can spend the rest of the day enjoying the stunning Torfhus Retreat. If you wish to do additional activities, you are more than welcome to do so. If you prefer to take it easy, we suggest you to go for a walk in the surroundings or make use of your own heated basalt stone pool and relax here with a drink. You will reach maximum relaxation levels, as you will be watching the peaceful nature, if you are lucky, the evening even offers you the chance of seeing the sparkling northern lights!

Today it is time to say goodbye, but you will do so with many new memories and new insights about the beauty that Iceland has! Enjoy your last breakfast at the hotel and start making your way to Keflavik Airport. You might be flying out from Iceland for now, but the country is more than happy to welcome you back another time! NOTE: this journey takes about two hours (excluding rental car drop-off), and therefore we recommend booking a flight in the afternoon.
