Day Destination Experience
1 Arrival

Once you have landed at Keflavik Airport in Iceland, please pick up your luggage and head through customs to find your bus.  Transfer to Reykjavik and check-in at your hotel in Reykjavik city.  The day is yours to rest and use at your own leisure. Overnight stay at Hotel Reykjavík Natura.

2 Wonders of North Iceland - Akureyri

In the morning get yourself ready for a flight to Akureyri, the capital of the North. After lunch enjoy an easy walk through Akureyri with stops at artist’s workshops. Enjoy the exclusivity of visiting some of Akureyri Local Artists, where they welcome us at their workshops, interact with us and explain their work. We walk through Akureyri Centre, visit workshops and handcraft stores with north Icelandic designs and products of various types and materials. Our last stop is at small “retro” café where we relax over some local beverages. Please note also that no two tours of Exclusive Art & Design Walk are the same. Various local artists are guiding this tour and each of them is unique and has a different story to tell, different background, different education and by adding their personal touch to each tour, you will never know what to expect but always be prepared to be amazed. Overnight stay at Icelandair Hotel Akureyri.

3 Game of Thrones tour

This is your chance to visit the “Land beyond the Wall” and see it brought to life with tales of the “Seven Kingdoms” by local guide Jon Thor Benediktsson, who also guided the Game of Thrones crew on set during filming in this area. Today you will be entering the other worldly landscapes of Lake Mývatn where the scenes for “North of the Wall” were filmed. Now it becomes apparent why Game of Thrones production crew were drawn to this area as the majestic Waterfall of the Gods, Godafoss, greets you. According to the Icelandic Sagas the waterfall draws its name from Þorgeir of Ljósavatn throwing his statues of the heathen gods into the falls when Iceland converted to Christianity in the year 1000. Your next stop will be the magical places were the latest series of Game of Thrones were filmed. Here you can try to relive the action in the locations seen in the series. No, you will hopefully not encounter any White Walkers, but with Iceland’s rich folklore let the story telling guide boost your imagination with tales of trolls and Hidden People alongside curious facts about what happened behind the scenes of Games of Thrones. After a day of beautiful waterfalls, volcanos, unusual lava rock formations, steaming hot springs, bubbling mud pools and mysterious landscape you’ll end the day with a splash at Myvatn Nature Baths. Not a filming location for Game of Thrones, but the calming waters relax you while imagining to be surrounded by other Free Folk. With a bit of luck the Northern Lights will entertain you during your soak, right before returning to Akureyri. Overnight stay at Icelandair Hotel Akureyri.

4 Day at leisure - Afternoon flight to Reykjavík

Morning at leisure in Akureyri and in the afternoon your return flight to Reykjavik. Overnight stay at Hotel Reykjavik Natura.
