This unforgettable private Iceland tour features incredible experiences such as venturing inside a glacier, cruising on a glacial lagoon, walking on a glacier, soaking in hot springs, seeing waterfalls, geysers, volcanoes, as well as private touring of the top scenic and cultural highlights around Reykjavik, the Golden Circle and South Iceland.

Upon arrival in Iceland, enjoy a VIP visit to the famed Blue Lagoon. Enjoy insider touring of the highlights of Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. Tour cultural highlights such as the National Museum of Iceland or Reykjavik Art Museum to gain further insight into Iceland's history and contemporary culture. See the iconic architecture of Hallgrimskirkja Church. Artisans of Leisure will also arrange visits to Harpa, the concert hall designed in conjunction with renowned artist Olafur Eliasson, and FlyOver Iceland to enjoy a simulated flight ride over Iceland's spectacular scenery. Also explore the colorful backstreets of the town, and walk along the harbor. If desired, browse top boutiques for Icelandic crafts such as hand-knit sweaters and blankets. Other options include visiting the Arbaer Open Air Museum, Viking Village or the Imagine Peace Tower. Artisans of Leisure can also arrange tickets to performances and reservations at top restaurants, such as a lunch reservation at a restaurant inside a hilltop building with incredible views over the city.

One day, enjoy the "Into the Glacier" tour of Langjokull Glacier, including driving across a glacier and venturing into a tunnel in the blue ice. During private touring, also see Hraunfossar Waterfall, which streams through a lava field.

Next, enjoy private touring in the iconic Golden Circle. See Gullfoss, Iceland's most famous waterfall, and watch Strokkur and other geysers erupt. Visit Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the Althing (Icelandic assembly) met for over 850 years in a spectacular rift valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Enjoy a private tour and local lunch at a geothermal greenhouse. Also visit other highlights of the area, such as Kerid crater lake. If desired, opt to take a dip in the Secret Lagoon, a unique natural hot spring. Alternatively, soak in the lakeside hot springs of Laugarvatn Fontana and sample bread and other baked goods from its geothermal bakery.

Continue along Iceland's spectacular southern coast, a region that offers some of the country's most impressive scenery. See Reynisfjara black sand beach and its basalt rock columns, and take in views of monumental sea stacks off the coast. Also see the amazing waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, and tour cultural highlights such as the Skogar folk museum and the Lava Center, a fascinating interactive museum dedicated to Iceland's geological forces. Also take a glacier walk on Solheimajokull Glacier. During the winter, this region is an ideal base for hunting the Northern Lights (aurora borealis).

Next, transfer to stunning Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. See icebergs floating in the lagoon, and visit nearby Diamond Beach, where chunks of ice create a glittery display on the black sand. Depending on the season, take a Zodiac cruise among the floating chunks of glacial ice or a super Jeep tour on Skaftafellsjokull glacier to see ice caves. Artisans of Leisure will arrange for you to have lunch at a local country farm. Accommodation will be at a luxury hotel with incredible views of the dramatic landscapes.

Return along the southern coast to continue scenic touring in the region and enjoy a four-wheel drive excursion in Thorsmork, a beautiful region of rugged peaks and glacial river valleys. Alternatively, take an excursion to Landmannalaugar, an area of geothermal hot springs and colorful rhyolite mountains in the Fjallabak Nature Reserve.

Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange tickets to cultural performances and reservations at top restaurants. Artisans of Leisure can also incorporate additional activities such as snorkeling between tectonic plates in the spectacular Silfra fissure, whale watching or puffin excursions, riding Icelandic horses in the countryside, Icelandic cooking classes, meeting with Icelandic designers, mountain biking, an excursion into a volcano, ATV rides, and tours of noted art and architecture sites.
