Summary of The Day:
If your flight lands early in the day we recommend taking the time to explore Reykjavík, the largest municipality in Iceland (airport transfer not included).
Ingolfur Arnarson, the first settler of Iceland built his farm on the peninsula where Reykjavík stands today. The town got its name “Smoky Bay” after the columns of steam that rose from the hot springs in the area and made such a deep impression on the first settlers.
In the evening you can choose from multitude of restaurants and/or coffee-houses to get better acquainted with Iceland's capital.
Summary of The Day: We'll travel along the south coast to Landeyjahofn harbor. After arriving at the pier at Bakkafjara we'll take a 30 minute ferry ride to the Westman Islands. Once there, we will explore Heimaey, the largest island in the Westman Islands archipelago.
Other adventures of the day include: a visit to the puffins in Storhofdi, a walk up to the crater of a volcano that erupted only three decades ago, visiting Eldheimar Museum and exploring flora of the new lava field.
In the afternoon you'll have free time to enjoy this lovely island on your own.
Summary of The Day: We take the ferry back from the Westman Islands and travel further on along the south shore noting the numerous glacial rivers on route to Skogar and Skogafoss waterfall. We visit with the farmers of Thorvaldseyri Farm located at the foot of the world famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano that last erupted in the spring of 2010.
