June:

Day 1: Drive from the city to a site where numerous ducks nest. Stop for about an hour to explore the different species. On we drive to the Snaefell peninsula, the ‘hand’ of the country where we will find different types of birds in their natural surrounding. Your guide has explored the area and knows where the best places to see birds can be found. In the afternoon we will take a ferry over to the island of Flatey, accommodation for 2 nights in this paradise of birds.

Day 2: A sail in between the numerous islands. The boat sails close to some of the cliffs so that you can view the birds from a short distance. The birds are used to the boats and people so they do not blink an eye when approached. An eagle can be seen in one of the islands.

Day 3: Today we sail back to the mainland in the afternoon, drive to Akureyri, which is the capital of the northern part of Iceland. Here we enjoy this clean, lovely town. Optional to do whale-watching in the evening.

Day 4: We will head further east on the north part of Iceland over to Myvatn. Myvatn is known for its vivid birdlife and extraordinary nature.

Day 5: Myvatn – so much to see and so many places to visit and see the different types of birds.

Day 6: Drive back to Reykjavik
