Iceland 2023


Let's Explore Iceland!

We had an amazing trip to Iceland last year and we decided that we want to go again in September of 2023 and bring all of you with us! This trip is going to be an opportunity to explore Iceland in a unique way, with a wonderful group of humans who are interested in exploring their creativity while exploring a new place (or a place that they’re visiting again). Scroll down to the bottom to see the details of the trip

Our group trips create community while we’re exploring new places, so that we get to have the advantages of a group (including pricing, exclusive tours, etc), but still get to be independent humans who are on an adventure and do some exploring on their own.We want to have a community while we explore the rest of the world.

We want you to have the opportunity to travel with the Amazing Travel Engineer, Bob Frey, to see how we have been able to explore the world and trust that somebody is handling all of the details. Bob is an expert at managing these kinds of projects. His special skill is in planning out brilliant adventures to the letter so that we get the most time to explore, enjoy, and just exist while we are out in the world looking at new things, new places and new cultures.

We invite you to Iceland so that you can see how we travel and see how it might work for you. We are intending to do more of this type of adventure and if there’s someplace that you’re interested in going that is not Iceland, please let us know because we’d love to create something for you and your community. The exploration of the world is a big part of how we have learned to thrive. We want you to be thriving as well. 

So if you are looking to get a big change of perspective, be surrounded by a positive uplifting community and explore a corner of the world that really is just mind bogglingly beautiful and interesting, sign up today!

If you should have any questions, you can reach us here:


Upon arrival, head through passport control, collect your bags and go through customs to the Arrival Hall. A guide will greet the group in the arrival hall and take them to their bus. 

Once in Reykjavik, check into your hotel. If you arrive early in the day, you might want to explore Reykjavik’s old town area, location of many museums and galleries. You might also enjoy visiting one of the city’s outdoor geothermal swimming pools where you can shake off your jetlag. In the afternoon we will have a coach transfer with your guide to the FlyOver Iceland where we will discover Iceland’s hidden wilderness in an unusual way at the interactive FlyOver Iceland experience. 

Dinner is on your own. Reykjavik offers a multitude of restaurants and/or coffee-houses, making dinner a great way to get better acquainted with Iceland’s capital.

Accommodation: Canopy Hotel by Hilton (7 Nights) 

Please note that most hotels begin check-in between 14:00 and 16:00 (2:00pm and 4:00pm).

Day 1:
10 Sept 2023
Arrival in Iceland – FlyOver Iceland

Breakfast at your hotel before heading onto the famous Golden Circle route. Iceland’s Golden Circle showcases a trio of celebrated natural attractions. Start with a visit to Thingvellir National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), where Viking settlers established an annual assembly in AD 930. This parliament has now become the world’s oldest ongoing. Thingvellir is also a geological masterpiece, as it marks the visible site of the mid-Atlantic Ridge where the North American and Eurasian continental plates meet. You can walk along a path taking you between the canyon marking the location of the ridge. Your guide will tell you about some of the important things that happened in Iceland’s history. It is interesting to imagine what Thingvellir must have been like hundreds of years ago when farmers, chieftains and merchants journeyed from all corners of Iceland to meet here to make laws, settle disputes, arrange alliances and meet old friends.

Head through scenic farmlands to the celebrated Gullfoss waterfall, believed by many to be Iceland’s most beautiful falls. Several walking paths take you to different views of the double-ledged waterfall. Nearby is the Geysir Hot Spring Area, alive with boiling mud pits, steam vents, and exploding geysers. The most famous of these is Strokkur, a high-spouting geyser that erupts every ten minutes, but there are many quirky and intriguing little geysers bubbling away. During the day you’ll stop at Fridheimar, an innovative family-run greenhouse farm and horse ranch. You’ll visit the green house and learn how the family uses pollution free geothermal energy and bumble bee pollination to grow their excellent organic tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. The farm also produces delicious products from their vegetables. You’ll also enjoy a demonstration about the Icelandic horse breed and its unique five gaits, along with a chance to meet some of these friendly animals. After a beautiful day in the Golden Circle area, return to Reykjavik for the evening.

Day 2:
11 Sept 2023
Reykjavik- Thingvellir National Park – Gullfoss – Geysir- Reykjavik 

Breakfast at your hotel. Drive along the iconic South Shore, an area of Iceland that is beautiful to view in the winter. This is one of the main farm regions of the country, and the road will pass by typical Icelandic farms, often with Icelandic horses in the fields.

Depending on the weather, you might also get a glimpse of beautiful Mount Hekla, Iceland’s most frequently erupting volcano, and glacier-crowned Eyjafjallajokull, the famous volcano whose 2010 eruption halted air traffic worldwide. You might even get a glimpse of the Westman Islands archipelago off the coast of Iceland. Stop at two spectacular waterfalls, each with its own charm and character. Depending on the trail conditions you can walk behind Seljalandsfoss. Skógafoss is one of the country’s most photographed waterfalls and is said to be the hiding place for ancient treasure.

As you drive along the coast, you’ll also get a view of Myrdalsjokull, Iceland’s fourth largest glacier. The road leads to charming Vik, Iceland’s southernmost village. Visit Reynisfjara beach, where you can take a walk on the black sands, admiring the extraordinary rock formations and thundering waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The North Atlantic waves here are very powerful, and the rumbling sound of them crashing against the dark shore is something you will always remember. Far out to sea you can see the Reynisdrangar sea stacks. According to old legends, they were once trolls. During the day, your tour will stop at the Lava Volcano & Earthquake Center in Hvolsvöllur which will help you understand the volcanic system of the area and what impact it has had on the environment and landscape.

Return to Reykjavik for another night in the lively capital city. 

Day 3:
12 Sept 2023
Reykjavik- South Shore – Reykjavik

Breakfast at your hotel. Your guide and driver will pick you up and take you to Perlan. Perlan is an amazing experience. You can walk through a real ice cave, feel the power of volcanoes and earthquakes, view a realistically constructed bird cliff and ocean wonders and learn about northern lights at a planetarium show. You will also have an opportunity to see the view over Reykjavik and surroundings on the observation deck. Return back to your hotel or be dropped off downtown if you wish. The rest of the day is free to explore the city.

Evening: Northern Lights Hunt

In the evening your guide and private coach will pick you up for a Northern LIghts hunting tour. Watching the fantastic colours of the Northern Lights dance across the arctic sky is an unforgettable experience, and Iceland is one of the best places to see them! The northern lights are mostly observed on crisp, still evenings. This tour takes your group away from the city lights to give you the best chance of witnessing this spectacular natural phenomenon.

Important: This tour is subject to weather conditions. Northern lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed.

Day 5:

Breakfast at your hotel. Today you’ll take a beautiful coastal road that leads onto the breath-taking Reykjanes peninsula. Reykjanes was designated a UNESCO Geopark in 2015 because of its many interesting geothermal and volcanic features, and it’s a fantastic place to explore.

We will drive directly to the world-renowned Blue Lagoon. Set in a black lava field, this geothermal spa is a lagoon filled with warm mineral-rich seawater that provides the ultimate interaction and relaxation with Iceland’s raw nature. Here you can enjoy a lovely soak in the healing waters of the lagoon, a unique wonder of nature with pleasantly warm, mineral-rich water in the middle of a black lava field. Return to Reykjavik, where evening is at your own leisure.
