Iceland Panorama | Custom Multi-Day Tour

This will be your personal and private tour, customized depending on your needs and wishes. We provide the expertise needed to arrange a truly legendary trip in Iceland. You’ll be getting around in comfortable 4×4 super jeeps with huge tires, you’ll be escorted by our friendly local guides, visiting off-road locations that most travelers don’t get to see. You and your family or friends will have plenty of time for photography! During the summer, we would gladly want to arrange a true highland route for you. During the winter, our selected accommodations will play a role in being able to see the northern lights.

We tailor this tour according to your wishes – contact us on info@discover.is for your quote.

PRICES: That will really depend on the number of people traveling, the amount of days, the season, and the accommodation level requested.

There’re many interesting activities that you can do along the way, such as snowmobiling, ice caving, glacier hiking, horse riding, river rafting, geothermal bathing, and many more. For granted are volcanoes, glaciers and waterfalls.

The highlights and the suggested itinerary below the map are just too basic!

We head on our epic adventure by visiting the classic sites of the Golden Circle route: the Thingvellir National Park, the geysers, and the magnificent Gullfoss Falls. One of our special highlights is driving onto Glacier Langjökull.
Options: there’s snowmobiling, among others.
You might want to spend the night in the company’s formidable lodge, with jacuzzi and sauna.

Today we may go off-road again and explore Thorsmork and cross some rivers. Along the South Coast, we have the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss on our route, as well as the black-sand beach of Reynisfjara. In summer we might see puffins in this area. Lots of secret stops as well.

Option: horse riding along the black-sand beach
Overnight: Vík or near.

Today is a day of impressive glaciers. You’ll see the National Park of Vatnajökull, particularly the nature reserve of Skaftafell. We might be able to hike to a waterfall. You’ll see truly stunning views to the glacier outlet Svínafellsjökull. The main highlight is probably the iceberg lagoon of Jökulsárlón and Diamond Beach. During the summer and shoulder seasons, it’s possible to take an amphibian boat tour, or a zodiac tour. There’ll be secret stops and off-road as usual :)

Options: boat tour, glacier hiking
Overnight: Jökulsárlón or near

Depending on the season, we might be lucky to spot herds of reindeer. This location is mesmerizing, it’s going to be a very scenic day (photographers want to stay here for a lifetime), and also ideal for activities.
Good local food, and then get the adrenaline up on a thrilling snowmobile ride, glacier hiking, ice caving (high winter only), or revisiting the icebergs in different daylight. We then begin exploring the East Fjords.

Options for today (or yesterday): snowmobiling, boat tour, kayaking, glacier hiking, ice caving. Some are season dependent.
Overnight: East Fjords

We’ll be exploring the quaint East Fjords today, and their fishing villages. There will be one or two fjords at least, possibly Eskifjörður or Seyðisfjörður. Then there’s the river-lake Lagarfljót with its milky colored waters and a worm monster in them, a cousin of Loch Ness monster. And the only real forest in Iceland, Hallormstaðaskógur (wanna try to pronounce that?). Plenty of secret stops :)

Optional: hike to a waterfall (season dependent)
Overnight: Lake Mývatn area

During high summer, we’d be very happy to take you over the highlands and show you what real super jeeps are all about. This is a highly volcanic area with stunning craters, calderas, lava fields, and new volcanoes.
Outside of the summer months we should place the emphasis on reaching the northerly part of Iceland, and beginning to explore Dettifoss Falls, the water cave Grjótagjá, the hot springs of Námaskarð, and many more of the multiple attractions up north.

Option: Mývant Nature Baths
Overnight: Lake Mývatn area

Do you see that ocean? It’s the Arctic Ocean! Probably a first time for most. Today we might visit Húsavík for whale watching, continue exploring volcanoes and craters, and the Goðafoss Falls, which has a very interesting history. Secret stops as usual :)

Option: whale watching
Overnight: North Iceland

Today we’ll explore the coastal attractions of the Arctic Ocean, and its fishing villages. Siglufjörður is a particularly interesting town. Depending on the itinerary and your interests or choice of activities, we might see a lighthouse, sea stacks, waterfalls and the infinity pool of Hofsós.

Options: river rafting, horse riding, whale watching
Overnight: Snæfellsnes Peninsula

EXTRA

If you have an extended vacation and can use another 2 or 3 (or 4) days, then we can include the West Fjords here, regardless of the season since we’re traveling on off-road vehicles. A good visit of the West Fjords takes no less than 3 days, but we can of course just concentrate on one portion of the West Fjords.

Also, adding one more day to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is a great idea.

The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is a treasure chest of stunning attractions. The National Park of Snæfellsjökull is at the tip of the peninsula. Main sites include Mount Kirkjufell, the offroad cliffs of Svörtuloft with rich bird life (summer), the beach Djúpalónssandur with ship wrecks, the majestic volcano, the quaint villages of Hellnar and Arnarstapi, and the little church at Búðir, to mention just a few.
Secret off-roading :)
It would be no problem to use two days here, and include other areas and activities, before reaching the capital.

Options: lava cave Vatnshellir, whale watching
Overnight: Reykjavík

Free day. Explore Reykjavik on your own. Typically it’s nice to simply walk downtown and see the Hallgrímskirkja Church, the pond Tjörnin with a lot of bird life, some of the museums such as the Settlement Exhibition, or the Saga Museum, for a cultural stop. The Harpa Concert Hall is also one of the main attractions, and the sculpture The Sun Voyager.

If your flight schedule allows, you could go to the Blue Lagoon on the way to the airport.

REVIEW: “Outstanding tour of a beautiful and amazing country”

We spent 8 days in Iceland with our driver / guide Orri Amin, an experienced and delightful person who’s been with Discover Iceland for many years. Orri and “his” modified 4-wheel drive Nissan, nicknamed “Joy”, took us around Iceland in 8 days. Orri made sure we got our money’s worth — from horseback riding, to whale watching, to snowmobiling on a beautiful glacier, to visiting a farm, to eating delicious lobster and other fish — and to being driven to so many waterfalls we lost count!

REVIEW: “Creative and Fun Tour Guides”

We went for a 7 day private tour of Iceland in late December thinking that time of year would give us the best chance to see the Northern Lights and the incredible Ice Caves we’d seen in various photos. We scoured Trip Advisor for the best tour guides and landed on Discover Iceland. Obviously, you’re always at the mercy of the weather that time of year, particularly in Iceland. Continue reading on TripAdvisor…
