Activity adventure | Natural world | Self-drive | Spa | Winter

Iceland is deservedly known for its dramatic landscapes and abundance of geological wonders. This tailor-made self-drive combines a stay in Iceland's capital, Reykjavik, with two nights at Ion Hotel, where luxury and high design contrast with the natural wonders of the UNESCO Heritage-listed Thingvellir National Park. Right at the heart of the country's famous Golden Circle, you'll have the chance to explore spectacular glaciers, plunging waterfalls and volcanic hot springs either bathed in the glow of summer's Midnight Sun or, if you visit in winter, under the ethereal beauty of the Northern Lights.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Fly to Iceland

Start your trip in style with included airport lounge access before your flight to Iceland. Arrive at Keflavik Airport where you'll collect your hire car before driving for around two hours to the Thingvellir National Park and the wonderful Ion Luxury Adventure Hotel, perhaps making a stop at the Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa along the way. Depending on when you travel you'll enjoy endless summer evenings under the Midnight Sun, or, from September to March, the chance of seeing the Northern Lights.

Stay: Ion Luxury Adventure Hotel, South Iceland (Superior)

Day 2
Thingvellir National Park

Spend a full day exploring the spectacular landscapes of Iceland's Golden Circle - an area rich in Icelandic heritage, flora, fauna and geological treasures including the hot spring area of Geysir, the Kerio Crater and the majestic Gullfoss Waterfall. Located adjacent to the Thingvellir National Park and Thingvallavatn - Iceland's largest lake - Hotel Ion provides the perfect base to explore the region known as "the land of fire and ice" and indulge in a range of adventure-based activities such as year-round snowmobiling on the Langjokull Glacier.

Stay: Ion Luxury Adventure Hotel, South Iceland (Superior)

Days 3-4

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the Ion Hotel before making your way back to Reykjavik. Once back in the capital, check into Hotel Borg for a two-night stay.

In the evenings, why not head out for dinner at one of Reykjavik's superb restaurants. The Grillmarket, just around the corner from Hotel Borg is a very popular choice so make sure you book in advance.
