Okay, It's time for an adventure around the southwest of Iceland. Who wants to go waterfall hunting and see if we can find the Northern Lights? 📷 We will spend six nights staying in Iceland for an adventure filled trip. The days will be for exploring the best sights of Iceland and the nights for hunting for the northern lights. From incredible waterfalls to black sand beaches, this is not one to miss! I can't wait to capture the beauty of this country and explore it with you. So, what are you waiting for? I am looking for 4 intrepid explorers to join me on this quest! I hope you are all ready to put on your thermals and wrap up warm for this Icelandic adventure because we will be making everyday count and going out rain or snow. If anyone else is happy to drive as well, there is potential for more spaces on this trip. Please let me know if that is something you are willing to do. 🚗 I have previously hosted this trip earlier this year so rest assure, I know all the best spots to go and visit. The southwest of Iceland has so much to offer; Volcanoes, waterfalls, tectonic plates and so so much more. I hope you are ready to get on those hiking boots! We will of course be going to the Blue Lagoon as well. I will arrange this to be near the end of our trip so we can really relax and soothe any achy muscles from all our hiking! All other activities and travel we can decide on as a group and use split wise while we are on the trip to share out expenses. This means we won't have to stick to a tight schedule and can go with the flow to make sure we all have the best trip! 🚗 Rental car: The fee for the car rental is covered, but we will be splitting the fuel and parking costs between us. A few things to note: 🥶 It will be cold, so you will need layers, layers and more layers. 🌧 It will also most likely be wet, rainy or snowy, so make sure you have your waterproofs. 🧊 You may need crampons as it could get very Icey. 🥾 Finally, there will be lots of walking to get those hiking boots at the ready. Are you ready for a jam-packed weekend in the land of fire and ice? Let’s chat, and I will give you more details and answer any of your questions.📩

A bit about me… I am Alannah and will be your Trip Leader (Basically I do all the arranging and booking, so all you have to do is show up!) I love creating new memories and meeting new people. I am always hunting for and exploring new places to find the best photo spots! I am a firm believer that travel is for everyone, and I absolutely love making new friends. So, if you're ready to get some awesome photos, you know what to do!

About the accommodation: We will be staying in a few different Air BnBs to allow us to explore as much of the southwest area of Iceland as we can. It would be good if you are willing to share a room, as we will be staying in a shared apartment/ room with a kitchen and other facilities. If this could be an issue, please make sure to contact me and I will see how I can help to accommodate for you.

Trip Itinerary


Day 1-2
Day of arrival! Depending on everyone's arrival time, we will plan accordingly. I can help you to arrange airport pickups, or you can take a bus to the city. We will aim to meet either in the city or at our accommodation. We will talk about this in our WhatsApp group prior to the trip. On the first day, we will have a nice meal together and get to know each other. We will also go through the plan for the rest of the week.


Day 2-3
The Golden Circle! We will be taking the day to explore all the best spots on the Golden Circle and trust me there are some gorgeous locations, you will not want to miss. From the water spouts to waterfalls and much, much more, we will be doing it all!


Day 3-6
Over the next couple of days we will move to a different location that will allow us to explore the south coast of Iceland as there are so many more waterfalls volcanos and even the black sand beaches. There is so much to discover around this area, and we will be a bit further away from the city as well to keep us away from the light pollution, so hopefully more chance to see the northern lights!


Day 6-7
After a couple of days in the south of the Island, we will make our way back to Reykjavik! It is Iceland's largest and capital city. There is some much to see and do in this area including the plane wreck on the black sand beach, many different bars and breweries and of course the stunning views. We'll drive around the area to make sure we get to experience as much of Reykjavik as we possibly can, and we will be going to the Blue Lagoon as well.

The Retreat at Blue Lagoon Iceland

Day 7
The Blue Lagoon is the country’s most famous and well-established geothermal spa in southwestern Iceland. The spa is located in a lava field near Grindavík and in front of Mount Þorbjörn on Reykjanes Peninsula. Entry tickets will be included in the price for this experience.

Þingvellir National Park

Day 7
The Northern Lights! On a clear night, you can see them throughout most of the country from late September to early April. But it’s important to remember that, as a natural phenomenon, seeing them is never a guarantee. It’s best to make your way as far out of the city limits as possible: The least amount of light pollution will allow the glowing lights to show more vividly. Pingvellir National Park is particularly known for offering spectacular views of the Northern Lights.
