ICELAND COLORFUL AUTUMN OR SWEET SPRING, FROM 3 NIGHTS, 4 DAYS, 3 NIGHTS FROM EARLY APRIL TO LATE MAY AND LATE AUGUST TO END OCTOBER

This trip is designed for people who want to take a short break and explore the seasonal beauty of Iceland.

The spring weather, on the other hand, offers a very different landscape of budding vegetation and new life. From mid-May on, you will see newborn lambs and foals in the meadows. Because you will be lodging in one hotel for the entire trip, there is no need to worry about packing your suitcases and moving from place to place. The area where you will stay, in or close by the small town of Selfoss, is conveniently located and from there it is easy to take in some of the most famous highlights of Iceland. Any direction you travel, interesting sights can be found. It is often possible to return to the hotel by a different route expanding your exploration of Iceland.  This trip is also quite suitable for people with children and will not disappoint! Of course, it is also possible to extend the trip for as many days as you like, there is enough to do and to see in this area!

Itinerary

DAY 1
Day 1: KEFLAVÍK–BLUE LAGOON-SELFOSS
After you arrive at Keflavík airport, you will pick up your rental car. If you arrive during the day, you can visit the famous Blue Lagoon, filled with natural, mineral-rich hot water. After a refreshing swim surrounded by the lunar landscape of lava fields and a geothermal plant, you drive to Reykjavík, where you can do some shopping, if you like. Next, continue on to your hotel in Selfoss.
DAY 2
Day 2: ÞINGVELLIR-GULLFOSS-GEYSIR
Today, you will start by driving to Þingvellir National Park, where the ancient outdoor parliament was founded in 930. This area is also very interesting from a geological point of view, since it’s situated on top of the mid-Atlantic ridge where two of earth’s tectonic plates slowly drift apart.  Because of this, you can hike down into a fissure (named Almannagjá) created between the two plates. After exploring this magnificent spot, you drive to Laugarvatn and then the tour continues on to the Geysir hot spring area with its famous spouting Strokkur and a great number of bubbling, steaming, boiling springs.  After this, you will visit one of the most beautiful, and certainly the most famous waterfall in Iceland, Gullfoss.  From Gullfoss, continue via the charming gorge of Brúarhlöð to Flúðir.  Next you can visit the lovely church at Skálholt, and then drive back to your accommodation.
DAY 3
Day 3: SELJALANDSFOSS-SKÓGAR-DYRHÓLAEY-VÍK
Today you follow the south coast towards the east, and you make your first stop at Seljalandsfoss, a lovely waterfall which is very special: You can walk behind it – if you don’t mind getting wet! Next, you should visit Skógar folk museum, a fantastic exhibit of old artifacts and other handicraft.  In the same hamlet, you also visit Skógafoss, a beautiful 60m high waterfall! Next you can perhaps drive to the glacier tongue Sólheimajökull to get an up close view of this unique site.  Another possibility is a drive up to Dyrhólaey cliff to see the puffins (not after mid-August). The road is steep and winding but the view is worth it. There are puffins everywhere up until the middle of August and, if the weather is nice, there is a lovely view of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. After a look at the village of Vík, you drive back to you hotel.
DAY 4
Day 4: KEFLAVÍK AIRPORT
Today you drive back to Keflavik airport for your flight back home.    If you have an afternoon flight, you still have some time to spend for shopping or visiting the city or the Blue Lagoon.
