Day 1 Get a bird's-eye view of Iceland's wild landscape as you fly from the capital to the country's second-largest city, Akureyri | Discover Eyjafjördur, Iceland's longest fjord, as we make our way along its shore with lush green meadows and mountainous border | Step off a boat for an exploration of Hrísey Island—a bird-lover's paradise and home to a picturesque fishing village with tidy traditional houses and exquisite views of the mainland.
Days 2-3 From the flanks of Illvidrishnjúkur our climb reveals panoramic vistas of headlands blanketed in vibrant green hues, descending sharply to the sea | Find yourself a mere 25 miles from the Arctic Circle and enjoy views of nearby mountains | Stroll through the quaint and historic village of Siglufjördur | Pedal through the picturesque fishing communities lining Eyjafjördur's shores | Visit Ektafiskur and try a taste of hákarl (fermented shark)—if you dare! | Take a stroll to Godafoss, one of Iceland's largest and most spectacular waterfalls.
Days 4-5 Wake up in Húsavik, one of Iceland's most beautiful towns | Set sail on the area's nutrient-rich waters for a view of the impressive coastline and a chance to spot whales | Back on land, ride past farms, ranchland, emerald green hills and the shores of Lake Mývatn, with landscape carved by molten lava | Climb to an up-close view of Hverfjall Volcano's caldera and surrounding otherworldly crater-like depressions | Cross through lava fields to the beautiful natural hot spring hiding in the Grjótagjá lava cave | Relax with a soak in the steaming waters of the Jardbödin lagoon.
Day 6 Your Icelandic adventure perfectly concludes with an exploration of the Krafla lava fields | Witness energy from the Earth's core feeding Krafla's power station and navigate the smoldering spectrum of colorful paths through Leirhnjúkur | Marvel at the bubbling mud pots, steaming fumaroles and boiling pools of azure water against steep black-and-ocher slopes at the Hverir Volcano vents.
