Greenland cannot be expressed in words. Iceland is much more earthly but our itinerary makes sure you get to experience a more remote Iceland of the West and the North. It is true that we could have done this without Greenland, but then going so close to feeling heaven and not actually feeling it is not what we want to be a part of.

We will be transiting in Amsterdam and board the WOW Air flight to Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. On our arrival in Iceland, we will be met with our driver and will proceed on the Golden Circle route. Our night stay will be in Laugarvatn.
One of the most popular tours in Iceland has a mix of all its varied attractions. We will start with the Geysir Geothermal Area where the Strokkur geyser shoots a column of water up to 100 ft high every 5 - 10 minutes. The visit continues with the Gullfoss (Golden) waterfall which tumbles into a crevice 105 ft deep. We will be also visiting the Kerio Crater with its very unique colored crater lake. After lunch we will continue on our drive to the North West and less touristy part of Iceland. Our night stay will be in Borgarnes, a charming town located on a peninsula at the shore of Borgarfjord with a population of just 1,700 people.
After a leisurely morning enjoying the surroundings by walk, we will start our drive in the scenic coast of West Iceland on Road 54. Our first stop this morning is going to be the town Arnarstapi where you will get a firsthand experience of watching the lava formations and in them the Arctic Tern colony of birds. We will enjoy a coastal walk here and then proceed to Hellisandur, a fishing port on the fringe of the Snaefellsjokull national park which is a bird lover's paradise. The highlight of the day comes up during lunch when we visit the bay on which Stykkiholmur is located. The view of the innumerable islands from the bay is very scenic and the old houses in the town are charming. After some free time for lunch, we will proceed to our night stay to Laugerbakki a small village, as we move from west Iceland to North Iceland.
The first stop on our scenic drive this morning is the amazing Vatnsnes Peninsula. Later observe the great views over to Strandir across the sea with a black lava beach. The troll like Hvitserkur rock formation and the fortress of Borgarvirki are also sights to wonder at. Blonduoss literally means the mouth of the river Blanda. It is an ideal place to enjoy a quiet lunch after which we will pass the very small village of Varmahlid before arriving in Akureyri, your home for the next two nights to access the North of Iceland. Akureyri is the second biggest city in Iceland and the capital of the North of Iceland.
Today is the day of waterfalls, lakes and nature baths. The town of Akureyri is a very charming one on a fjord. We will start our morning leisurely with a drive on the highway 1 which is also called the ring road. Our first stop is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland, Godafoss. Later we will drive on a gravel road to reach the beautiful Lake Myvatn, which is a volcanic lake created by a large basaltic lava eruption 2300 years ago. The Detifoss waterfall is reputed to be the most powerful waterfall in Europe and you will see why. Lunch can be enjoyed at the thermal baths of Lake Myvatn Geothermal Area. The water is at a temperature of + 40 - 45 deg centigrade and we have included the entrance at the baths. You will have to carry the costume and towels. After a relaxing dip in the thermal waters we will return back to Akureyri to spend some time at city center.
This morning we will board our flight to Reykjavik and then enjoy a 3 hour city tour before we check in to our hotel. In the evening we will have an Indian dinner.
We will board the Air Iceland flight from the Reykjavik airport today to fly to the land of the mid night sun on the west coast of Greenland. Illulisat at a latitude of 69.2 deg North is north of the Arctic circle and the sun today won't set. On arrival we will be taken to our accommodation which neighbours the Ilulissat ice fjord, where there are floating icebergs from the most productive Glacier in the Northern Hemisphere. We will enjoy a midnight sun boat tour among the floating ice bergs for a magical experience of the land of Greenland.
Today we will visit a typical Greenland Village and see the culture of this magical country up front. We will be hiking to the settlement of Oqaatsut and then enjoy a guided tour of the settlement. The settlement has a prime position on the disco bay which is as pretty as it gets. After lunch we will walk on the wooden pathway laid out at the Unesco preserved Glacier sight to get a complete feel of this massive Glacier. We will return back to Ilulissat in the evening and enjoy the last night of the midnight sun.
We will fly back to Reykjavik by around mid-day. You would need to carry some food stuff on the flight back which takes around 2.5 – 3 hours. On our arrival in the city center airport we will proceed to check in to our hotel. In the evening we have ample amount of time for some last minute Icelandic souvenirs or just move around the city to explore it on feet.
After a leisurely breakfast we will drive to the Keflavik international airport from where we will board the flight to Amsterdam. We will check in to a hotel close to the airport for our night stay.
We will board the Jet Airways flight back to Mumbai today.
