Winter in Iceland
Sunday 16th - Wednesday 26th February 2025
Tour Cost: £3,400 (Plus Flights) (Based on Twin sharing basis)

You fly from London Heathrow to Keflavik arriving mid-afternoon and from here transfer to the Hveragerdi, our home for the next two nights. During our stay here we will be able to explore a number of waterfalls and the Geysir area, home to stunning thermal features and the majestic Gullfoss. From here we travel east to Vik, visiting various locations along the southern highway. These include Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss and Dyrholaey and the Black Beach at Reynisfjara. Whilst in Vik we have the opportunity to take an optional tour to the Katla Ice Cave. From here we continue east to Kirkjubaejarklauster and Skaftafell, stopping at various locations to visit dramatic waterfalls, moss beds, views of glaciers and a turf roofed church.

Our next stop will be at the Jokulsarlon Lagoon where we will explore along the shoreline of the lagoon as well as Diamond Beach to look for stranded icebergs. This is one of the most exciting photographic features found along the southern coast. The final leg of our journey east takes us to Hofn where we have the opportunity to explore the Stokksnes Peninsular and photograph the stunning Vesturhorn Mountain.

We then return west to Selfoss and onto the Snaefellsness Peninsular giving us the opportunity to explore the many amazing sites to be found around the peninsular. We make a visit to Kirkjufell and Kirkjufellfoss, one of the most attractive waterfalls in Iceland. The peninsular is dominated by the high mountain range running down its spine. Its icecap offers a spectacular back drop to the wild landscapes and Icelandic churches that are found here. It is also the source of many waterways that form cataracts and waterfalls as they cascade down to the sea. Of course, this time of year means the days are short so the light is low, offering good landscape potential. This is also an excellent location should we be lucky and experience the Aurora as there are a number of coastal areas which are prime to capture the stunning natural phenomenon.

Having spent time exploring this remote and exciting part of Iceland we will turn south to begin our return journey to Keflavik. The first part will take us through some exciting landscapes and mountainous areas as we drive to Borgarnes for our final overnight stop.
