Iceland

Unravelling the Legends of Fire and Ice

THE EXPERIENCE

Icelandic rumour has it that legends of Viking lore and elfin magic permeate every step of the way, that this is where extremes are met but never equalled. They say that many can imagine but few are lucky enough to experience the starkly beautiful windswept plains and thunderous waterfalls that hold so much to so many.

Encompassing dark, mysterious caves, the frozen Arctic Circle, mysterious Nordic tales and an oasis of relaxation, this journey is a rarity in a world of plenty.


This Couture Collection experience is exclusively connected to two 2018 Silversea cruises.

DAY BY DAY
ITINERARY

DAY 1
After arrival in Reykjavik and hotel transfer, enjoy a Viking themed lunch. Drive to Thingvellir National Park to marvel at Gullfoss waterfall. Then enjoy riding typical Icelandic horses through the stunning landscape before returning to Tower Suites and dinner at Michelin star Dill Restaurant.
DAY 2
Travel by private helicopter to Akureyri for the Godafoss waterfall and a Champagne toast. Continue to Lake Myvatn and the geothermal area of Krafla, Namaskard and Dimmuborgir. Drive west to Deplar Farm, an ex-18th century sheep farm, now a luxury resort hotel.
DAY 3
An active day awaits. Chose from kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, whale watching, a RIB safari, horseback riding or a visit to Siglufjordur. The evening will be spent around a bonfire while a local storyteller entertains you.
DAY 4
Fly to remote Drangey Island, home to thousands of seabirds. Enjoy bird-watching and a hearty Icelandic lunch before flying back to Reykjavik. A pre-dinner lecture on Iceland will fascinate the historian in all of us.
DAY 5
Fly from Reykjavik to the top of Eyjafjallajokull for a special lunch set up on the ice cap. Then, take the controls of a private Arctic buggy to reach Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls. Legends claim of treasures hidden there, but after the exploration on the ice cap, some local delicacies and a hot chocolate will certainly be treasured.
DAY 6
Today you will explore another ice cap. Fly by private helicopter onto the Langjokull Glacier and enter a man-made ice tunnel at 1,200 metres above sea level. Later, fly across Breidafjordur to Stykkisholmur, located on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. After lunch fly back to Reykjavik.
DAY 7
On your last day enjoy a relaxing stay at Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s most famous hot springs before preparing for your flight home.
