+ TOUR OVERVIEW

On this tour, you will spend an incredible 5-days, 4 nights exploring Iceland's Southern Coast, ice climbing glaciers, snowmobiling over tundra's, ATV'ing over mountains, hiking through lava caves and enjoying unlimited drop-ins at CrossFit Reykjavik. Two meals, a walking tour and multiple VRX tour guides, as well as a trip photographer are included.

DAY 2 - july 13, 2020
Day 2 is a jam-packed, awesome day. After an included breakfast, the group will depart for one of Iceland's most famous tours, 'The Golden Circle.' First, you will see Thingvellir National Park, an ancient site where Iceland's tribes once gathered and forged the first parliament. This is also where historic battles have been fought, won, and decided the fates of many natives to this magical country. You will see the continental divide, and learn about the history of this magical place before departing to the Strokkur Geysir, and of course, the Gullfoss Waterfall. This awe-inspiring water feature is now the main source of hydroelectric power for the entire country of Iceland. Finally, you will end the day by doing a 1-2 hour snowmobile tour on one of Iceland's largest glaciers - Langjökull!
As a group, you will be offered either a morning or late afternoon workout at CrossFit Reykjavik.

We will be back in Reykjavik early enough for you to explore on your own a bit for the night! You will have the option of either a morning or afternoon workout at CrossFit Reykjavik, too.

DAY 4 - july 15, 2020
After breakfast, we will have an AM departure to Iceland's famous Southern Coast. In this epic excursion, we will stop at the legendary waterfalls of Skogafoss, Seljalandsfoss, as well as walk the black sand beaches of Vik. After our lunch stop at Vik, we will head to a nearby glacier that retreats in the summer to reveal an epic opportunity. With help from our mountaineering guides, we will strap on two ice axes, and learn to climb the glacier while attached to a rope.
The group will then hike up into the glacier for some spectacular scenery, all while learning about Iceland's amazing ecosystem. Shortly after, we will return to Reykjavik to conclude an epic day! Afterwards, we head back to Reykjavik for our last group dinner before the Blue Lagoon tomorrow.
An optional morning workout will be offered at CrossFit Reykjavik.

Lay back in the blue waters and reflect on the epic adventures we have had. We will recount some of the memories from the trip and just R-E-L-A-X before hopping on our flights home. One last optional morning workout will be offered at CrossFit Reykjavik, too.
