Endless hot springs & ancient volcanoes await lesbian travellers in Iceland. If you’re hungry for an epic adventure, this pristine nation is a perfect place to explore. Capital city Reykjavik offers everything from eclectic nightlife to tantalizing Nordic cuisine. The countryside is a great place to spike your adrenaline by white water rafting, glacier trekking, or zipping on Zodiacs through glacial lagoons. And when you’re ready to unwind in a natural hot tub, hundreds of geothermal zones await (you may even spot the Northern Lights).

Iceland Lesbian Summer Escapade Lesbian Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Reykjavik, Iceland / Arrival Day
Halló – welcome to Iceland!

After checking in to your room please join us for a Welcome Meeting at 5PM. You’ll meet your guide Ziggy, who will explain what the queer scene is like in this remote and sparsely populated country.

Our Welcome dinner is just across the street, where the lesbian sommelier and manager will give us top-notch service. To wrap our first day we’ll partake in Reykjavik Culture Night, when museums, theatres and other institutions kick off their annual programmes. Attracting 100,000 people it’s easily one of the city’s biggest events.

NOTE: The first day of our tour is also the Reykjavik Marathon. Why not arrive a day early and take part? You can sign up for the 10K, 21K, or full 42K marathon, so you don’t even have to be an avid runner. Since we’ll join a larger LGBT group there will also be lots of fun and camaraderie en route.

Day 2 - Snæfellsnes
An epic road trip brings us to the dramatic Snæfellsnes Peninsula.

The drive includes a visit to a farm where you’ll meet purebred Icelandic goats – cuddly creatures that are on the brink of extinction. The goat breeder, Jóhanna, will explain how she helps keep the stock alive.

See the glacier-topped volcano Snæfellsjökull, the symmetrical basalt columns of Gerðuberg, and possibly some seals at Ytri-Tunga Beach. We’ll also check out the Library of Water art installation by Roni Horn.

Finally we’ll walk along the coast between the villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, and marvel at the grandeur of Kirkjufell (aka Arrowhead Mountain from TV’s Game of Thrones).

 

Iceland geysers lesbian tour

 

Day 3 - The Golden Circle
Today is dedicated to one of the most popular drives in Iceland: the Golden Circle.

You’ll see hot springs and geysers, and learn how geothermal energy lets Iceland grow tomatoes and strawberries in artificially-lit greenhouses.

After an included lunch at the farm we’ll hike to see Brúarfoss waterfalls.

Day 4 - Paradise Valley
A drive to the outskirts of the Icelandic highlands brings us to a pastoral landscape full of rivers, ponds and waterfalls.

We’ll hike into Gjáin, aka The Gorge, and enjoy a rugged 4X4 journey to Háifoss waterfall.

Our day ends at the Hrauneyjar Highland Centre, where we’ll spend the night.

 

Iceland Landmannalaugar lesbian tour

 

Day 5 - Landmannalaugar and the Icelandic Highlands
Today we’ll hike a breathtaking but generally uninhabitable part of the country.

Once we arrive at Landmannalaugar, geothermal baths will help limber us up before we return via Fjallabak, where the landscape is laden with moss-covered craters.

Tonight we’ll stay in a cozy but modern guesthouse.

 

Iceland Glacier Lagoon lesbian tour

 

Day 6 - Glacier Lagoon & Hike
Today we visit the magical Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon. Witness the mighty power of Iceland’s glaciers, and even trek the glacier under the guidance of a trained professional.

In Skaftafell National Park you’ll also be able to hike up to beautiful Svartifoss Waterfall, before we return to the guesthouse for one more night.

 

Iceland South Shore lesbian tour

 

Day 7 - South Shore Adventure
This morning we’ll drive back to Reykjavik along the South coast, with stops to admire waterfalls, glaciers, and black sand beaches.

We’ll even visit Ölvisholt brewery, where we’ll meet their female Brewmaster.

Our trip ends with a Farewell Dinner and a quintessential Icelandic experience: a house party hosted by some local lesbian legends (and friends of Out Adventures), Eva and Birna.

 

Iceland Blue Lagoon lesbian tour

 

Day 8 - Reyjkavik & Blue Lagoon / Departure Day
It’s the last day of our Icelandic escape, but we’re sending you off in style.

En route to the airport we’ll visit the world-famous Blue Lagoon and soak in the healing waters.

To ensure you don’t miss a moment of fun, please book a return flight that departs after 4PM.

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
Summer in Iceland is pleasant but chilly. Daytime highs average in the low 60's F (15C), with evening temperatures as low as 50F (10C). Rain is always a possibility, so bring along an umbrella for the city, a 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 $50,000.

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.
