Join us for an adventure in Iceland in June 2020 and create bold and lasting memories with your daughter as you experience the otherworldly beauty of Iceland – together! Get active while riding Icelandic horses across volcanic landscapes; delight on a wildlife cruise; explore Iceland’s caves, waterfalls, and glaciers; learn how to pilot an ATV (all-terrain vehicle) and a snowmobile; and then soak your cares away in a warm thermal hot spring.
An unforgettable mother/daughter getaway in Iceland; this is the perfect way to love, laugh, and be a little bold together! After greeting your guide at the Reykjavík–Keflavík Airport, gather for introductions with the other mothers and daughters who are joining you on this blissful getaway, then head straight out to see Iceland in all her rugged glory!
Much of Iceland’s visual drama is due to millennia of erupting volcanoes and shifting continental plates. Visiting 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, rejuvenate with an Icelandic cheese tasting and visit an Icelandic chocolate factory.
In Snæfellsjökull National Park, you’ll experience bewitching landscapes that include visiting a glacier-topped volcanic peak and then a wildlife cruise around Breiðafjörður Bay, watching for puffins as they swim and nest. Explore the meandering tunnels of Víðgelmir Cave then visit the Snorrastofa Museum to learn about Iceland’s language, the beloved Four Sagas, and Icelanders’ belief in elves. Chilled Icelandic microbrews and a dreamy soak in Krauma Spa are the perfect ending to a perfect day.
Nothing says you’re an Adventure Woman like taking a thrilling journey on snowmobiles over the Langjökull Glacier and into a tunnel of blue ice under the glacier. We’ll then travel a “notorious” Icelandic mountain road to reach historic Thingvellir National Park. In this park, you will watch groundwater boil at the Great Geysir Hot Spring and see huge rainbows that shimmer over the mighty Gullfoss Waterfall.
Saddle up and fall in love with Icelandic horses 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 in Iceland with your daughter 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 mother and daughter duos and true Adventure Women. Before flying home, bring your camera in for a few beauty shots and take a dip in the famous Blue Lagoon, an outdoor spa filled with milky-blue, mineral rich waters.
The breathtaking sights and discoveries on this active Iceland adventure for mothers and daughters in June 2020 is the perfect opportunity to bring you and your daughter closer than ever before!
