Your budget travel adventure to Iceland is an amazing 8-day journey that begins and ends in the capital city of Reykjavik. You’ll discover that Iceland is one of the most fascinating countries in Europe as you experience its unique, almost lunar landscapes, as well as the simple but interesting culture of its people.

You will start your journey along the rugged coastline to Snæfellsnes peninsula to see the famed 700,000-year-old Snæfellsjökull glacier-covered volcano. You’ll also visit small fishing villages, including Djúpalónssandur – known for its legendary lifting stones to test the strength of fishermen.

The visit of Eiríksstaðir includes a replica of the sod-roofed home of Norwegian Viking, Erik the Red – also the birthplace of his son, legendary explorer Leif Erikson.

Travel through the renowned “Valley of Horses” – Iceland’s abundant agricultural region. You’ll stop at The Goðafoss – “Waterfall of the Gods” – and follow the shores of Mývatn Lake for stunning vistas of the volcano, wetlands, and wildlife.

You’ll see Dimmuborgir – the “Catacombs of Hell” – with its bubbling mud, volcanic caves, lava formations, and glow of subterranean lava. You’ll enjoy one of the local favorite activities soaking in the warm relaxing mineral waters of Mývatn Nature Baths.

Your affordable vacation in Iceland continues to the Deildartunguhver geothermal hot springs, and also takes you to Þingvellir National Park’s tremendous Gullfoss waterfall and erupting geysers.

Returning to Reykjavik, take the day trip to the South Shore to capture photographs of awe-inspiring waterfalls. You’ll also learn about Icelandic architectural and engineering history in the Skógar Folk Museum.

Your Iceland budget travel adventure concludes with a priceless visit to the black-basalt beaches of Vik, ranked as one of the 10 most beautiful on Earth. The magical beauty of Iceland’s geology, nature, and culture is certainly a trip for the ages.

During the winter months, it will be likely for you to experience the spectacular natural wonder of the northern lights, or “Aurora Borealis.” The spectacular phenomenon of a stunning spectrum of light and shapes dancing against the backdrop of the night sky is sure to create indelible memories.
