Day 1: Arrival in Keflavik Int. Airport
Your rental car will be waiting for you at the airport and you start by driving the 45km to Reykjavik and check in to your guesthouse. Boat excursion to Puffin Island.  City view from the tower of Hallgrimskirkja cathederal.
Accommodation: Hotel in Reykjavik

Day 2: Snaefellsnes Peninsula
This day you go to the west part of Iceland and visit Snaefellsjokull National Park. There are plenty of good biking opportunities; biking to the tip of the peninsula or from Hellnar to the charming fishing village of Arnarstapi or through lava fields or going down the fun track from the glacier to the beach.
Accommodation: Hotel Hellnar or Hotel Budir at the edge of the national park

Day 3: Exploring Snaefellsnes
You can choose from going whale watching from Olafsvik which is the best place to see the big whales, going snowmobiling on the glacier, exploring the bird life in the lava cliffs along the shore or go mountain biking in the national park. Plenty of good bike routes, both flat and up/down hill. Snaefellsjokull glacier and the area around it is known for its magnetism and has been the subject of famous author´s such as Iceland´s Nobel Price winner Halldor Laxnes and Jules Verne.
Accommodation: Hotel Hellnar or Hotel Budir at the edge of the national park

Day 4: Exploring Breidafjorður Bay
You drive a short distance to the other side of the peninsula to the small town of Stykkisholmur where you go on a boat excursion among the countless islands and/or visit the island of Flatey.
It is said that there are three things you can´t count in Iceland and one of it are the islands in Breidafjordur Bay. The birdlife is rich and you get to taste fresh seafood caught on your trip.
Plenty of scenic biking routes around the nice little country fishing town. Relaxed atmosphere and plenty of nature.
Accommodation: Hotel in Stykkisholmur

Day 5: Borgarfjorður detour on the way to Reykjavik
You take your time getting back to Reykjavik and visit Iceland´s largest hot spring, Deildartunguhver and the Hraunfossar (Lava Waterfalls). If you have rented a 4x4 we recommend you take the mountain road Kaldidalur to Thingvellir national park. This road really shows you the barren and remote side of Iceland; rugged lava surrounded by glaciers and mountain desert. If you don´t have a 4x4, you go take the scenic Hvalfjordur fjord route to Reykjavik.
You drop of the bikes and the rental car when in Reykjavik.
Accommodation: Hotel in Reykjavik

Day 6: Private Super-Jeep tour: Golden Circle to Thorsmork
Golden Circle from Thingvellir to Geysir and Gullfoss in your private Nature Explorer Super-Jeep & driverguide. This tour is almost mandatory when coming to Iceland for the first time. Instead of going back to Reykjavik we continue to Thorsmork nature reserve and stay overnight.

We go off-road into the mountains; drive across glacier rivers up to Hrafntinnusker (1100m.a.s.) and explore the ice caves formed by hot springs underneath the ice cap before soaking in the geothermal pool in Landmannalaugar. Crater lakes, lava fields and deserts as well as magnificent view of numerous glaciers on a clear day. We arrive in Reykjavik in the evening.
