A slow-paced, small group trip through Iceland… There’s so much to do and see in Iceland and it can be really hard to fit all in one trip. Lots of fast-paced tours cram everything into 5 days, but we’re going to take our time and travel at an easy-going pace along the Ring Road in 11 days which means no rushing on and off the bus with only 10 minutes to hurry up and take a few pics at every stop. Our small group size will also let us see some of the off-the-beaten path spots in Iceland :

- Mykvan Hot Springs : We’ll visit the bucket list Blue Lagoon, but Mykvan are less crowded and very relaxing for a perfect zen moment.
- Secret Iceberg Lagoon : Take a zodiac to a “hidden” iceberg lagoon where we’ll be the only ones. Just you and huge icebergs up close & personal!
- Beer spa & jacuzzi : Soak in beer-filled jacuzzis with snow-capped mountains as a backdrop while sipping on your favorite lager.

Included :
- 10 nights accommodation (double occupancy)
- Local Icelandic guide throughout
- Private ground transportation in private 4x4 minibus
- Most activities
- Blue Lagoon visit
- All breakfasts
- Airport pick-up
