ITINERARY:

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.

Today we’ll snorkel in Silfra. Two tectonic plates meet at this rift, and we may even be able to see the crack below. We’ll then drive along the Golden Circle to Gullfoss waterfall, the Great Geysir, & Þingvellir National Park (where you will see the even grander Great Atlantic Rift).

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.

Today we’ll trek and go ATV-ing with the pros on Iceland’s 4th-largest glacier in souped-up “Super Jeeps”. We’ll hit the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier for an ice-walking lesson, then partake in this Icelandic pastime. Best of all, this tour takes us off the beaten track, away from the standard sites, giving you the full glacier experience.

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.

Today we’ll visit one of the most picturesque places in Iceland, and the inspiration for Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth: Snæfellsnes Peninsula. We’ll see a beautiful black pebble beach, stunning cliffs, amazing birdlife and other impressive sites with stops for lunch and an early dinner.

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!

Iceland Pride Adventure

The co-arrangements with the local groups made our trip exponentially better. 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 OUTAdventures tour and won't be my last.

Iceland Pride Adventure

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!

Iceland Pride Adventure

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.

Iceland is an absolutely beautiful country. A must see for any world traveler. OutAdventures made the trip run very smoothly and effectively and has done a great job finding a guide.
