Day 1: Arrive in Iceland
Arrive in Keflavik and collect your rental vehicle at the airport then transfer to Reykjavik for an overnight stay.
Day 2: Snaefellsnes Peninsula
After breakfast make your way to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. This 2,5 hour drive is a scenic route, with plenty of stop off points along the way. Check in to your hotel for 3 nights. With sweeping lava fields and the recognisable Snaefellsjokull dominating the landscape, this stunning region was the setting and inspiration for Jules Verne's famous ‘Journey to the Centre of the Earth'.
Day 3: Whale watching
Take a morning whale watching trip out into the fjord (starting at approx. 10:00). Hot chocolate and a snack will be provided on board. The length of the boat trip will depend upon whale sightings but is usually around 2-3 hours. Return back into Grundarfjordur for lunch (payable locally) and to enjoy an afternoon at leisure. You can either opt to explore the village on foot or explore the local area by car. Enjoy a relaxing evening and keep an eye out for the northern lights.
Day 4: Snaefellsnes Peninsula

Leave Snaefellsnes Peninsula and drive back to Reykjavik for the last overnight stay. Explore the numerous restaurants and bars in the capital.
Day 6: Depart Keflavik
