Day 1 - ARRIVAL TO REYKJAVIK

 

Welcome to Iceland – the land of Fire and Ice

 

Arrival in Iceland and transfer on your own to your hotel.

 

Take a stroll in the center of this small town, which is also the capital located to the north of the world. You can ask at the reception of your hotel for a wake up call show of the Northern Light.

 

Overnight in Reykjavik, Fosshotel Raudara or similar

 

Day 2 - REYKJAVIK – GOLDEN CIRCLE – REYKJAVIK

 

 

Breakfast in the hotel.

 

The Golden Circle tour allows you to visit some of Iceland‘s most stunning sights; Geysir geothermal area, the waterfall Gullfoss, and the UNESCO site Þingvellir National Park as well as to learn about growing vegetables in a country which doesn’t get much daylight for most of the year.

 

Geysir geothermal area is in South Iceland, near Laugarvatn Lake. The area is named after the biggest, and now mostly dormant, geyser Geysir and all geysers in the world owe their name to it. The biggest attraction today is the active Strokkur, which shoots up a column of water up to 30 metres (98 ft.) into the air every few minutes.

 

Gullfoss is one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland and rightly so. The three-step waterfall is a part of the glacial river Hvítá and falls into a 62-metre (105 ft.) deep canyon. For the first half of the 20th century, there were ideas about using the waterfall to generate electricity, but thankfully nothing came of it.

 

The UNESCO site Þingvellir National Park is geologically and historically significant. Apart from being the location of the oldest parliament in the world, Alþingi, it is also a place where you can see the Mid-Atlantic ridge above ground. The Eurasian and North-American tectonic plates pull the country apart by a couple of centimetres per year.

 

Return to Reykjavik

 

 

Day 3 - REYKJAVIK – NORTHERN LIGHTS

 

 

Breakfast in the hotel - Day at leisure to explore Reykjavik at your own pace

 

Tonight you head out on a Northern Lights tour which takes you to see a spectacular natural phenomenon which happens during the winter months. The locations visited during the Northern Lights tour vary from day to day depending on weather conditions. Because this tour is weather dependent, sightings are not guaranteed. However, if you don‘t see any Northern Lights during this tour, you are welcome to join the tour again, free of charge.

 

Overnight in Reykjavik, Fosshotel Raudara or similar

 

Day 4 - Rekjavik

 

Breakfast in the hotel.

 

Day available for shopping or for optional tour to the SOUTHSHORE.

 

 

 

OPTIONAL TOUR TO SOUTHSHORE:

 

South Iceland is special for that it is one of the flattest regions on the island. Because of that, most of all grain farming in Iceland is done there. The high mountains to the north, shield the area from the harshest winds from the north.

 

Among the stops on this tour are at the gorgeous Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss is part of the Seljandsá river, which has its origins in Eyjafjallajökull glacier. What makes Seljalandsfoss so famous and interesting is that you can walk behind it. We recommend you bring either a raincoat or a waterproof coat along if you want to walk behind it. Skógafoss, another famous Icelandic waterfall, is the starting point of the Fimmvörðuháls walk over to Þórsmörk. The waterfall was also used in the films Thor: The Dark World and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

 

We will also stop at Reynisfjara black sand beach, with the Reynisdrangar rock formations and columnar basalt. It is one of the most spectacular beaches in Iceland but can be dangerous, and we kindly ask our guests not to go too close to the ocean and go by guidelines.

 

Additionally, we will stop by Sólheimajökull and walk up to a small lake which has formed in front of the retreating glacier.
