Join us in Iceland in June 2020 to create bold and lasting memories with your daughter as you experience the otherworldly beauty of Iceland – together! Get active horse riding across volcanic landscapes, delight on a wildlife cruise, explore caves, waterfalls and glaciers, learn how to pilot an ATV (all terrain vehicle) and a snowmobile then soak your cares away in a warm thermal hot spring.
An unforgettable mother/daughter getaway in Iceland – It’s 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. 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, rejuvenate with an Icelandic cheese tasting and visit to a chocolate factory.
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 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 Adventure Women like a thrilling journey on snowmobiles over the Langjökull Glacier and into a tunnel of blue ice under the glacier, then driving a “notorious” mountain road to reach historic Thingvellir National Park. You can see groundwater boil at the Great Geysir Hot Spring and huge rainbows shimmer over the mighty Gullfoss Waterfall.
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 active Iceland journey in June 2020 will no doubt bring you and your daughter closer than ever before!
