SUN JUL 25
TO 5:00 PM Reykjavik

day 4 Reykjavik, Iceland


Reykjavik, Iceland
The world's most northerly capital and Iceland’s main population center, Reykjavik feels more like a big town than a city. It’s surprisingly hip with a live music scene, art, and eclectic architecture. World-class nature attractions are close at hand, including one of the country’s deepest lakes as well as bubbling and steaming earth. In a sophisticated spa setting at the renowned Blue Lagoon, you may soak in waters heated naturally by the earth. It’s a must-do experience and great photo opportunity. Your body will thank you. Reykjavik is a fun city to explore on foot. Wander the old quarter with its colorful historic buildings and narrow streets, then head uphill to the Hallgrímskirkja church, a modernist landmark. Stroll the harbor front, stopping at a fishermen’s shack for a bowl of langoustine  (lobster soup) – there’s also plenty of opportunity for fine dining in this foodie capital. Further along the water are artist studios, boutiques, cafes, and galleries occupying former fishermen’s warehouses and sheds. Art-lovers will want to visit  the Reykjavik Art Museum, with its large collection of Icelandic works. The separate contemporary branch near the harbor includes a collection of works by Icelandic pop-artist Erró. The National Museum of Iceland is the place to explore the country’s history and culture, starting with the Vikings.
 
MON JUL 26
10:00 AM TO 5:00 PM Heimaey Island,

day 5 Heimaey Island, Iceland


Heimaey Island, Iceland
A visit to this small fishing town will get you thinking about how the earth is still changing and forming. The Westman Islands town was half buried by lava and ash when a nearby volcano erupted in 1973. Most residents were safely evacuated to the mainland, but the town maintains a reputation as a modern-day Pompeii. A visit here is your opportunity to hear from locals who lived through a devastating earthquake and lived to tell about it – all while you view the Edfell Volcano and it’s older sibling, the 5,000-year-old Helgafell Volcano. For more lessons in geology, take a boat tour to view Surtsey Island, which only rose from the sea in the 1960s and has been a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site since its birth. The other big attraction is seabirds. Zodiac tours provide closeup views of seabird populated sea cliffs including the largest colony of Atlantic puffins.

6:00 PM TO 11:59 PM Seydisfjordur

day 6 Seydisfjordur, Iceland

The town, with its striking colorful wooden chalet-style homes, is located at the end of a narrow, 11-mile fjord and surrounded by snow-capped mountains and cascading waterfalls. During World War II the Allied Forces had a camp in the waterway and the Germans sank an oil tanker in an air raid. It’s still at the bottom. In summertime, the town is a popular place for artists and musicians to discover their muses – leading to a delightful and lively atmosphere. An overnight here assures time to explore galleries and crafts markets, and sample Icelandic cuisine.

THU JUL 29
9:00 AM TO 7:00 PM Akureyri

day 8 Akureyri, Iceland


Akureyri, Iceland
Close to the Arctic Circle but with an ice-free harbor, Akureyri is a major fishing port. The town’s population is only about 20,000, but Akureyri claims status as the “second city” in Iceland (after Reykjavik and its suburbs). It feels more like a university town – complete with a big summer arts festival. The town was first settled around 890 by Viking Helgi the Lean, and is located at the end of Iceland’s largest fjord. The snow-capped peaks above the town are popular skiing destinations in winter.  Stick around town to explore art galleries, the botanical garden and the modernist church (by the same architect who created Reykjavik’s Hallgrimskirkja church) and visit the tasting lounge of the Einstok microbrewery. Fans of the TV show “The Game of Thrones” will want to book a flightseeing over the dramatic icy landscape used as filming locations. Tours also visit the Godafoss, known as the “Waterfall of the Gods.” Or fulfill your bucket-list dream of riding a gentle Icelandic horse through lush countryside.
 
FRI JUL 30
12:00 PM TO 8:30 PM Isafjordur

day 9 Isafjordur, Iceland


Isafjordur, Iceland
This pretty, small town in the Westfjords region exhibits a hipness that is a surprise in the middle of nowhere. Isafjordur is known for fishing and music, especially its alternative music scene that has bred trendy shops, cafés, and restaurants serving modern cuisine. A yearly music festival in April attracts bands from throughout Iceland and internationally. The town is also home to one of Iceland’s oldest music schools, with classical and other concerts performed year round.  Nature also is close at hand. Head to the charming village of Sudavk to learn about the Arctic Fox at the non-profit research and exhibition center. The Arctic Fox is the only native terrestrial mammal in Iceland. Nearby Vigur Island is a privately owned sanctuary where you can walk around with Eider ducks in their natural environment. There’s also opportunity for kayaking in a calm fjord, with mountains touring above. 
SAT JUL 31
9:00 AM TO 6:00 PM Grundarfjordur

day 10 Grundarfjordur, Iceland


Grundarfjordur, Iceland
The beautiful fishing village of Grundarfjordur is a destination where fire and ice very much come into play. The main attraction is Snaefellsjokull National Park, with its glacier-covered volcano. Inside are lava caves, with opportunity for visitors to put on a helmet, grab a flashlight and go under the huge Snaefellsjokull Glacier to see dramatic formations. Or stay above ground and hike on the ice of the glacier, which is so large you can see it from Reykjavik (about 124 miles away). This is the glacier that inspired Jules Verne’s novel Journey to the Center of the Earth. From Grundarfjordur, we offer many shore excursions that include Journey to the Center of the Earth to explore the 8,000-year-old Vatnshellir Cave, hiking experience in the extensive Berserkjahraun Lava Field in the mystical Snæfellsnes Peninsula or a sailing tour that offers bird watching, whale spotting and fish angling. Other popular activities include fishing in Breidafjordur Bay or visiting the puffins, cormorants, kittiwakes and other birds nesting on Melrakkaey Island.
