Day One – Jet Ski on the Atlantic
Dive straight into the action with a private jet ski tour of Ólafsvík, where you will get an unrivaled view of the mountains of Tröllaskagi peninsula. In the evening, head to The Beer Spa and enjoy a dip in a private hot tub of beer, before heading on a tour of a local brewery.
