Our tour heats up with a steamy dip in the Blue Lagoon and at a house party hosted by two queens of the local lesbian scene. Perhaps most importantly, this exciting short-haul includes a chance to check out The Northern Lights—one of travel’s great treats.

If you’re more of a warm weather gal, perhaps our Icelandic summer tour is of more interest.

Iceland Lesbian Winter Weekend Escape Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Reykjavik, Iceland
Halló - welcome to Reykjavik!

After checking into your room please join us for a Welcome Meeting where you’ll meet your guide Ziggy and get a quick intro to the sparsely populated country.

After introductions, Ziggy will take us on a walking tour to see the city’s highlights such as Hallgrimskirkja, Harpa and the Sun Voyager.

At tonight’s official Welcome Dinner we’ll be treated like VIP at one of the city’s best restaurants, known for its excellent wine selection.

After dinner you’re welcome to hit the hay early in preparation for our tomorrow’s big day or enjoy a final nightcap at the city’s small but mighty LGBT bar.

Be sure to look skyward while walking back to the hotel as this will be our first chance to glimpse the allusive Aurora Borealis, aka The Northern Lights.

Day 2 - South Shore Safari
Today we’ve got a full day ahead with our South Shore Safari. Via private transportation we’ll venture into The Land of Fire & Ice’s famously rugged countryside, stopping at viewpoints and noteworthy sights.

For example we’ll visit glaciers, walk on a particularly striking black sand beach, and if the weather is on our side, we’ll even be able to see volcanoes in the distance. We’ll photograph both Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls. If the region seems oddly familiar, that’s because you’ve seen it in movies and television such as Game of Thrones.

After stopping for lunch we’ll enjoy an invigorating glacier hike with our private guide then wind down with a couple of brewskies at much lauded Lady Brewery—please note: this activity may take place earlier depending on reservations.

Finally, why not use your free time this evening to enjoy our countryside hotel’s outdoor geothermal pool with yet another opportunity to see the Northern Lights.

Day 3 - The Golden Circle
Today’s journey begins or ends by treading in the footsteps of the vikings at Thingvellir National Park.

Together we’ll walk through a gorge that is being torn apart by the shifting tectonic plates below. It’s through this rugged landscape we’ll stumble upon UNESCO-listed Althing, an open-air assembly space used by Nordsmen from 930–1798 AD to set laws and settle disputes.

Beyond Thingvellir, another highlight of our day will be a visit to Gullfoss waterfall, arguably one of the most beautiful in the world! We’ll also witness the power of the Great Geysir.

Then it’s back to our beautiful guesthouse for a free evening and dinner on your own.

Blue Lagoon Iceland lesbian tour

 

Day 4 - Reykjanes Peninsula and The Blue Lagoon
This morning we ride along the Reykjanes Peninsula to see the geological wonders of what is considered to be the youngest part of Iceland.

Two interesting stops we’ll make include Iceland’s longest and most famous lava tunnel (which we’ll actually spelunk), and the point where two tectonic plates meet.

After a few photos at both sites it’s off to the world-famous Blue Lagoon for a steamy dip and mud mask treatment.

Today’s scrumptious (and healthy!) lunch will be served at Hjá Höllu in the small fishing village, Grindavík.

Our day ends back in Reykjavik with free time to further explore the city before our Farewell Dinner.

For our final evening together we’ve been personally invited to a house party hosted by two fabulous local ladies, Eva and Birna. From their gorgeous apartment we’ll have our final chance to glimpse The Northern Lights.

Trip Notes

Visas
A visa is not typically required for American, Australian, British and Canadian citizens travelling to Iceland for fewer than 90 days. There may be exceptions, and all visas are the responsibility of the traveller.

Culture Shock
Tourism in Iceland is well-developed enough to afford many of the luxuries of home. Nearly everyone speaks English, and locals are very outgoing and friendly.

Local LGBT Scene
While the scene is small, and centred around Reykjavík, being lesbian or gay in Iceland is a complete non-issue (they’ve already had a lesbian prime minister).

Weather
Winter in Iceland is quite volatile. Daytime highs average in the high 40's F (3C), and lows around 28F (-2C). Snow is always a possibility, so bring along proper winter gear as well as waterproof outer layer, and a few thin layers to keep you warm.

Required Vaccinations
Based on the entry requirements for Iceland, there are no vaccinations needed for entry. To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, you should consult your doctor or a travel medical clinic, as we cannot provide vaccination recommendations.

Electricity
You will need an international travel plug/adapter for type F sockets.

Connectivity
All of our hotels will have Wi-Fi access, so feel free to tweet, pin, post and share your experience with your friends and family at home. They might be a tad jealous!

How we travel
Out Adventures is all about good times with like-minded people. Whether we’re sitting around a campfire or indulging in five-star decadence, our goal is to make the experience magical. We also support the communities we visit by hiring local guides, staying at locally-owned accommodations whenever possible, and seeking out authentic local cuisine. It all adds up to a great way to immerse yourself in the culture.

Travel Insurance
For everybody’s peace of mind, medical travel insurance is required on all Out Adventures tours. At a minimum, your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum medical coverage of US $200,000.

Your guide
All Out Adventures are led by a lesbian host and/or group leader. Whenever possible, we hire destination locals. And we can also connect you with the right people if you’d like to delve deeper into the local culture. If you’re pleased with your guide, we recommend a tip of US $10 per guest, per day…they’ll certainly appreciate it!

Fellow adventurers
Out Adventures are a great way to meet people from around the world and all walks of life. Bear in mind that everybody’s there for a good time, so mutual respect will go a long way. Please be on time for any meet ups, empathetic to the needs of others, and ready to roll with whatever the adventure brings.
Although we can’t tell you who your fellow travellers will be for privacy reasons, we can tell you many great friendships began with an Out Adventure. And just because we’re an LGBT tour operator doesn’t mean we’re exclusive: friends and family are always welcome to join the fun.

Flying solo
If you’ve never travelled on your own, it’s an amazing way to get to know yourself while making new friends along the way. We can arrange for you to share a room with people in your age range at no charge, or you can pay a supplement for your own room. If there’s an odd number of solos, we’ll rotate a single room on a random basis.

Meals
To keep things flexible, not all meals are included in the trip price. While we typically dine together so everybody can get a taste of everything, feel free to explore on your own or your guide will always have restaurant recommendations. Please note that food in Iceland is costly, so you could easily spend $100 USD for a typical meal featuring an appetizer, entree, dessert, and drink.

Money
The local currency is the Icelandic Krona. We recommend carrying local currency for small purchases, but credit cards are accepted at most upscale restaurants, and at hotels. We also recommend carrying about $400 USD to be used in case of an emergency, or if your credit/ATM cards are placed on hold.

Tipping
We’ve covered the gratuities for included activities, meals, and our local activity guides. You’ll only need to offer a tip on any extra drinks or services you buy on the trip, and your Group Leader. We recommend budgeting about $150 USD in total for tipping.

What to bring
Most Out Adventures entail carrying your own luggage on occasion. And while you’ll never schlep far, things can quickly get costlier than a celebrity breakup if you don’t keep your baggage under 20kg/44lb thanks to costly surcharges on domestic flights. You should also bring something smaller for day trips to carry water, your camera, and any souvenirs you find along the way.

A Special Note On Arrival Transfers
All Iceland departures include arrival/departure transfers via a local shared shuttle bus, known as the FlyBus. Three weeks before departure you will be given a ticket to board the FlyBus. You will also receive detailed instructions on where to catch the bus, how to board and where to get off. If you’d prefer a private transfer, please contact our sales team for pricing.
