Reykjavík & Breiðafjörður Bay
Much of Iceland’s visual drama is due to millennia of erupting volcanoes and shifting continental plates. Stopping in geothermically active Reykjanes Peninsula, you’ll see steam billowing up through cracks in the ancient lava beds and a real split between two continents. Return after breakfast on ATVs for a fun ride over the peninsula’s mossy lava fields, then up to an overlook where many sightings of elves have been made! Back in Reykjavík, enjoy a city sightseeing tour before visiting Mrs. Eirný, Iceland´s Queen of Cheese, who will tell you all there is to know about Icelandic cheese, the lovely skyr, and other local dairy delicacies. Of course, there will be lots of cheese to taste as well!
In Snæfellsjökull National Park, walk the bewitching landscape which includes a glacier-topped volcanic peak before boating around Breiðafjörður Bay, watching for puffins as they nest and swim. Explore the excellent tunnels of Víðgelmir cave then continue to your next natural wonder, the Hraunfossar waterfall. Beautiful cascades of spring water flow down the huge Hallmundarhraun lava field and trickle in hundreds of tiny waterfalls down the edge of the dark and rugged lava field.
At Gullfoss waterfall, board a big super truck and drive through the rugged, Mars-like highland landscape of Iceland – this is an adventure of its own! Arrive at the glacier hut where you will learn how to operate your snowmobile and go over the safety procedures before you ride off into the wondrous glacier wonderland.
Horseback Riding to Thermal Hot Springs
Saddle up and fall in love with Icelandic horse on a delightful trail ride from Sydra-Langhold farm, then slip into the thermal Secret Lagoon for a steamy soak, knowing that a sumptuous lobster feast awaits your return to Flúdir.
Your last full day begins with another opportunity for spending time with Icelandic horses at a lively horse show on Friðheimar Farm and ends with a festive farewell dinner, celebrating each mother and daughter who chose to do something truly amazing. Before flying home, bring your camera in for a few beauty shots and a dip in the famous Blue Lagoon. This outdoor spa is fed by underground thermal springs that produce milky-blue, mineral-rich waters.
The breathtaking sights and experiences on this Iceland journey are guaranteed to make memories you and your daughter will treasure for a very long time.
