After breakfast we depart for northern Iceland following the N1 perimeter road. In the Eyjafjordur fjord on the north side, a protected fjord that gathers many whales to feed, we will take part in a cruise to observe them. The excursion lasts about 2 1/2 to 3 hours with the experienced captain following the whales and dolphins to an area with Europe's largest concentration of whales.

Dettifoss, Stludlagil, Egilsstadir

We depart for the most beautiful lake in Iceland, Lake Myvatn, a eutrophic shallow lake in the area of the active volcano Krafla, which was created by an eruption 2300 years ago. We will make stops at various points of interest with pseudocraters, rock formations and underground lava faults with pools of hot water and we will wander around the geothermal fields of Hverir and Krafla, with fumaroles, effervescent muds and craters.

We continue with a visit to the Dettifoss waterfall with the largest volume of water in Europe. Driving east we will cross volcanic fields of desert type, with destination the Studlagil gorge, an impressive gorge with basaltic walls, which we will explore with a two-hour course, reaching the bottom and base of its basaltic walls.

In the afternoon we end up in the village of Egilsstadir for an overnight stay at Tehusid Hostel in dormitories with 8 – 10 beds and shared bathroom.

Day route 351 km, 5 hours

Litlanesfoss / Hengifoss, Vestrahorn - Hofn

We depart in the morning for an hour and a half hike to the Litlanesfoss and Henfifoss waterfalls located at the western end of Lake Egilsstadir, and descend from impressive volcanic rocks with warm colors and basaltic dihedra.

From a path we will climb to the waterfalls, from where we have a spectacular view of the slopes and the valley below.

Then we move to the southern coast of Iceland with day destination the village of Hofn. On our way we will stop at a Viking village, created as the backdrop of a movie, and then we will walk at the foot of the impressive mountain Vestrahorn, the long black beach in front of it.

Day route 235 km, 4 hours

Jokulsarlon, Skaftafell, Katla Geopark

Lake Jokulsarlon is a glacial lake that began to be created around 1935, as by then the Vatnajokull glacier reached the sea. Since then, climate change has noticeably limited the glacier, leaving behind an impressive lake filled with floating icebergs. We will explore the lake with an amphibious boat which allows us to reach next to icebergs with seals swimming among them. Then we will walk to Diamond Beach, the beach where pieces of transparent ice wash up that shimmer like diamonds.

Continuing west we will go to the Skaftafell National Park, where we will make a short walk to observe up close one of the branches of the Vatnajokull glacier, the largest in Europe and then walk to the rim of the Fjadrargljufur gorge and the lava fields of the geopark.

Continuing  we will visit the famous Geiser Strokkur  and the Thingvellir National Park, where we will march on a visible part of the fault of the Great Mid-Atlantic ridge formed by the separation of the two tectonic plates North American with Eurasian, and we will visit the area where the first parliament in Iceland was founded (UNESCO monument).
