Experience the otherworldly beauty of Iceland together on this active, seven-day mother-daughter adventure with ATV rides, wildlife cruises, horseback riding, hot springs, and snowmobiling in June 2019.
Kick off your journey to Iceland with a visit to the Reykjanes Peninsula, where vast lava fields have produced otherworldly rock formations and a breathtaking coastline. An hour-long ATV ride takes you across the rugged terrain of the volcanic peninsula and up the rocky mountain paths of Mt. Helgafell. Capture amazing family photos at the summit, where panoramic views take in the famous Blue Lagoon and Mt. Fagradalsfjall. An afternoon bus tour of Reykjavik, with stops to taste Icelandic culinary delicacies, will give you a chance to unwind and get to know your AdventureWomen companions.
At Snæfellsjökull National Park, Iceland’s extremes come together in its famous glacier-topped volcanic peak. A boat trip around Breiðafjörður Bay will offer opportunities to witness the whales and puffins Iceland is known for. Explore Víðgelmir cave, Iceland’s most spectacular lava cave, which will take your breath away with its stunning colors and strange lava formations. Relive mother-daughter visits to the petting zoo with visits to a Goat Conservation Center and the Sturlu Reykir horse farm. Samples of local beer and fresh homemade rye bread will give you a taste of Icelandic tradition. Finish the day with a relaxing in the largest natural hot spring in Europe.
Nothing will bond you as a group of Adventure Women like a thrilling journey on snowmobiles through a man-made ice tunnel. Drive through the haunting and barren beauty of the Kaldidur Valley and historic Thingvellir National Park. Visit the Great Geysir Hot Spring, one of Iceland’s most famous wonders, and see if you can spot a rainbow hovering over the sparkling waters of the Gullfoss Waterfall.
The next day, a horseback riding adventure on Icelandic horses will bring you past tranquil ponds and picturesque waterfalls. A relaxing hot spring soak afterwards will wash away the dust of the road. The following day, visit a charming farm and enjoy an Icelandic Horse Show offering more fun photo opportunities, followed by an afternoon of exploration of Reykjavik, a beautiful and unique city you and your daughter will love.
Cap off your mother-daughter Iceland adventure with a visit to the world-famous Blue Lagoon, an outdoor spa filled with milky-blue waters. After a good soak in the hot springs, filled with skin-soothing minerals, you and your daughter just might be mistaken for sisters!
The breathtaking sights and experiences on this Iceland journey in June 2019 will no doubt bring you and your daughter closer than ever before!
