This private luxury tour covers the must-see highlights of Iceland.

Upon arrival in Iceland, enjoy a VIP visit to the famed Blue Lagoon. Enjoy insider touring of the highlights of Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. See the iconic architecture of Hallgrimskirkja Church. Explore the colorful backstreets of the town, and walk along the harbor. Also visit Harpa, the concert hall designed in conjunction with renowned artist Olafur Eliasson. If desired, browse top boutiques for Icelandic crafts such as hand-knit sweaters and blankets. Other options include visiting museums such as the National Museum of Iceland, Reykjavik Art Museum, Arbaer Open Air Museum, Viking Village or the Imagine Peace Tower. Also enjoy a lunch reservation at the restaurant inside the hilltop Perlan building, which has incredible views over the city.

Next, travel along Iceland’s spectacular southern coast, a region that offers some of the country’s most impressive scenery. See Reynisfjara black sand beach and its basalt rock columns , and take in views of monumental sea stacks off the coast. Also see the amazing waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, and tour cultural highlights such as the Skogar folk museum and the Lava Center, a fascinating interactive museum dedicated to Iceland's geological forces. During the winter, this region is an ideal base for hunting the Northern Lights (aurora borealis).

Continue to stunning Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. See icebergs floating in the lagoon, and visit nearby Diamond Beach, where chunks of ice create a glittery display on the black sand. Depending on the season, take a Zodiac cruise among the floating chunks of glacial ice or a super Jeep tour on Skaftafellsjokull glacier to see ice caves. Artisans of Leisure will arrange for you to have lunch at a local country farm. Accommodation will be at a luxury hotel with incredible views of the dramatic landscapes.

En route back to Reykjavik, enjoy private touring in the iconic Golden Circle. See Gullfoss, Iceland’s most famous waterfall, and watch Strokkur and other geysers erupt. Visit Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the Althing (Icelandic assembly) met for over 850 years in a spectacular rift valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Enjoy a private tour and local lunch at a geothermal greenhouse. Also visit other highlights of the area, such as Kerid crater lake. If desired, opt to take a dip in the Secret Lagoon, a unique natural hot spring. Alternatively, soak in the lakeside hot springs of Laugarvatn Fontana and sample bread and other baked goods from its geothermal bakery.

Return to Reykjavik for a final night and time to enjoy the city's many shops and restaurants.

Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange tickets to cultural performances and reservations at top restaurants. Artisans of Leisure can also incorporate additional activities such as whale watching or puffin excursions, horseback riding, Icelandic cooking classes, meeting with Icelandic designers, mountain biking, an excursion into a volcano, ATV rides, and tours of noted art and architecture sites.
