Brief Itinerary

 

Day 7: 18 March, Saturday

Today we drive towards Vik, Iceland's southernmost village and one of the most tourist sites in Iceland, and for at least 2 good reasons - the Black Sand beach offering a chance to capture some great black and white shots, and the Reynisfjall with its unique rock cliff formation.

Day 8: 19 March, Sunday

As we drive back to Reykjavik, we'll take some time to unwind and take a bath at the excellent Blue Lagoon Thermal Bath, to reinvigorate ourselves after the long journey. We'll arrive in Reykjavik in the evening with a bit of time to do some souvenir shopping and have one dinner together before getting ready to fly home the next morning.

Day 9: 20 March, Monday

After breakfast, we head to the airport to get ready to fly back to Kuala Lumpur with sweet memories and photographs of Iceland.

Day 10: 21 March, Tuesday

We'll reach Kuala Lumpur international airport today. Home sweet home.

Day 1: 15 November, Wednesday

We will convene and depart from KLIA, taking our first step to our journey to Morocco.

Day 2: 16 November, Thursday

We will arrive in Morocco and get picked up to Marrakech and check in to our hotel. We will be exploring this city for 2 nights.

Day 3: 17 November, Friday

Another day of exploration in Marrakech.

Day 4: 18 November, Saturday

We will head out to Ouarzazate and to Dades Valley (Kalaat M’gouna) and visit the Todra Gorges. Ouarzazate is a city south of Morocco’s High Atlas mountains, known as a gateway to the Sahara Desert. Its huge Taourirt Kasbah, home to a 19th-century palace, has views over the rugged local landscape, which features in several movies. Northwest is the fortified red-earth city of Aït Ben Haddou. 

Day 5: 19 November, Sunday

Arriving in Merzouga, we will embark on our journey into the Saharan desert on camel! The Desert tours will take youto enjoy an exotic adventure. This is an experience of a lifetime, sleeping under the stars and witnessing the sunset and sunrise from the top of a giant sand dune.

Day 6: 20 November, Monday

We will pack our gears and head towards Hofn today, capturing the iconic view of the Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon at sunrise. Overnight in the vicinity of Vik.
