Iceland: Countryside & Reykjavik Pride

A Grand Gay Tour of Iceland Concluding with Reykjavík Pride

From the surprisingly cosmopolitan and capital of Reykjavík, to the remote and pristine countryside, this 8-day gay adventure will immerse you in everything there is to love about the Land of Fire and Ice. You’ll explore the stunning South Shore, float between tectonic plates, traverse a glacier by super-jeep, and – best of all – celebrate Reykjavík Pride with an international group of LGBT travellers and all the friendly locals. Want more Iceland fun? Also check out our Iceland Winter Weekend, departing in March.

ITINERARY

Day 1 Reykjavik

Halló! Today you’ll meet your fellow travellers, along with your gay Icelandic guide, before we ramble through Reykjavík by foot. We’ll then head for an optional dinner at one of Iceland’s best restaurants, followed by drinks and a potential spot of dancing.

Day 2 Silfra Snorkelling/Gjabakkahellir

Today we’ll snorkel in Silfra. Two tectonic plates meet at this rift, and we may even be able to see the crack below. After we’ve unsuited, we’ll drive along the South Shore to Gjabakkahellir, a famous cave. We’ll spelunk a lava tunnel and marvel at the shark tooth stalactites. The terrain can be rough and you’ll have to use your hands and feet to navigate a few passages.

Day 3 Southern Coast/Vik

Today, we’ll drive to Iceland’s South coast to see the majestic Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls, along with the captivating rock formations of Reynisfjara and Reynisdrangar.

Day 4 Mýrdalsjökull Glacier Trek & Super Jeep Tour

Today we’ll trek and ride souped-up “Super Jeeps” across Iceland’s 4th-largest glacier. We’ll hit the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier for an ice-walking lesson, then partake in this Icelandic pastime. Please be aware ice-walking is tricky for the best of us — good mobility is required on this activity. Best of all, this tour takes us off the beaten track, away from the standard sites, giving you the full glacier experience.

Day 5 Blue Lagoon/Reykjavík

Today we’ll hit the Blue Lagoon for a dip, and give this geothermal pool some extra sizzle with other gay and lesbian travellers who are also in town for Pride. Grab a drink and chat up your fellow dippers before we head for our hotel in Reykjavík, and base for the next few nights. This evening features an optional dinner, and perhaps some Pride festivities.

Day 6 Golden Circle Tour/Reykjavík

On today’s Golden Circle Tour, we’ll buddy up with another LGBT group who will also join us for Reykjavik Pride weekend. Past guests have been thankful for a larger dynamic during Pride. Today’s Golden Circle itinerary includes stops at Gullfoss waterfall, the Great Geysir, & Þingvellir National Park (where you will see the Great Atlantic Rift). Tonight you can opt for either an early night in or an eventful night out, likely at the city’s official gay bar, Kiki Bar.

Day 7 Reykjavík Pride

Champagne greets you this morning, as part of a fabulous pre-Pride brunch. Then we’re off to Reykjavík’s official Gay Pride Parade and a short outdoor concert. Then it all ends tonight at the official Pride Dance, the festival’s flagship event. Be sure to end it with a bang!

Day 8 Reykjavík/Departure

There are no activities planned today, so you are free to depart at your leisure. Safe travels!

This was my second Out Adventures tour and won't be my last.

We got VIP treatment at a large local event, had special unadvertised extras along the way and got to know people we ordinarily would have just been introduced to in passing. This was my second Out Adventures tour and won’t be my last.

It turned out to be a trip of a lifetime!

Iceland: Countryside & Reykjavik Pride
Rating:

THIS was a tour I went on to appease my partner, I truly was nervous about an “active” adventure. Truth is it turned out to be a trip of a lifetime! Spectacular country with beautiful views, great tour guide, the other travelers were super, and a wonderful itinerary that, as an active one, wasn’t so active that it wore me out! Our days were full and wonderful and I would definitely travel with OUT Adventures again. We are already planning our next trip!

The guide was excellent and the destination amazing

Iceland: Countryside & Reykjavik Pride
Rating:

The trip far exceeded expectations. Every day’s events were well planned yet flexible enough to accommodate for weather conditions (two excursions were switched to take advantage of this). Though clearly this is not something that can be done on all trips this demonstrates how important the customer experience is to Out Adventures. The guide was excellent and the destination amazing. Our experience was so positive we’re already planning our next trip with Out Adventures.
