Is this adventure for you?

Each Vantage Adventure is designed to help you fully experience local culture and to get out and explore while keeping active. We find these are the two most fulfilling and rewarding ways to transform any trip into an adventure, and into the experience of a lifetime. To that end, we’ve rated each trip to indicate the level of cultural immersion and physical activity, with “1” being the lowest and “3” being the highest.

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS: 

  • You must be able to walk 2-3 miles unassisted
  • Travelers using wheelchairs, walkers, or other mobility aids are not suited for this adventure

PACING: 

  • 5 destinations in 11 days
  • 1-night stays in Skagafjörður and Reykjavík
  • One 45-minute domestic flight (one additional domestic flight if Greenland extension is also booked)

TERRAIN: 

  • Please expect some walking on rugged paths and slippery, bumpy roads
  • One short hike on hiking trails, about 0.6 mile

TRANSPORTATION: 

  • Travel by private, air-conditioned 49-passenger motorcoach
  • One 45-minute domestic flight (one additional domestic flight if Greenland extension is also booked)

HOTELS: Our accommodations are standard hotels at prime locations; a mixture of the authentic countryside and modern properties. All of them are new hotels: very clean, well-maintained, light, and in harmony with nature. As such, they may seem fairly simple and small by American standards, however, this is also what makes them charming and relaxing. Keeping an open mind will help you enjoy your experience more.

FOOD: Icelandic cuisine has a long history. Important parts of Icelandic cuisine consist of lamb, dairy, and especially fish due to Iceland's proximity to the ocean. Much of the cuisine’s taste is determined by the preservation methods used; pickling in fermented whey or brine, and drying and smoking are common. Vantage Deluxe World Travel has carefully selected the best meals from a variety of international menus at each location we visit.

PRECAUTIONS: There are few significant safety and security concerns in Iceland. The tap water is clean and fresh; water in general is consumable even from rivers! Iceland is one of the safest countries in the world; its crime rate is extremely low. We do advise you, however, to prepare for possibly challenging weather conditions by packing suitable, waterproof clothing and walking and/or hiking shoes with good tread.

CULTURAL IMMERSION: This Iceland travel itinerary offers great cultural opportunities to explore the nature and history of Iceland through guided tours.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: Most sightseeing during your Iceland travel itinerary will be on coaches with guides, and all hotels are in convenient locations. However, a number of sightseeing trips are in natural parks and will involve walking over potentially uneven ground, so passengers should be aware of their surroundings and wear proper walking attire.

Important Notice: Day-by-day itineraries are preliminary and therefore subject to change. If changes occur while on tour, you will be notified by your Vantage Adventure Director or regional expert.
