Discover Iceland, a land forged by  fire and ice. Steaming lava fields reflect a volcanic nature, massive glaciers sculpt mountains and valleys, leaving thundering waterfalls and plunging fjords. Overnight Flight. Our tour begins in Reykjavík, the capital city of Iceland. Join a local expert for a walking tour of the city’s old section featuring Hallgrimskirkja church, city hall, the harbor and Reykjavík’s oldest building. Tonight, get to know your fellow travelers during an Icelandic dinner.

Travel the Golden Circle, a route that encompasses many of Iceland's most renowned natural wonders: waterfalls, glaciers, geysers, lava fields, and volcanos. Begin at Thingvellir National Park, where you’ll stand on one of the globe’s most geologically significant landscapes, Thingvellir’s rugged rift valley. This UNESCO World Heritage site marks the point where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. Marvel at the beauty of the Gullfoss waterfall, a stunning 100-foot double cascade. Stop at the famous thermal area of Geysir to admire the hot spring Strokkur’s explosive vertical spout that reaches a height of up to 90 feet. Your day concludes with a visit to Friðheimar greenhouse cultivation center to learn how the locals grow delicious, pesticide-free vegetables with the aid of Iceland’s geothermal energy.

 

Experience the otherworldliness of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Take in the dramatic landscapes of black and white sand beaches, stunning cliffs, mountains peaks, volcanic craters, soaring waterfalls, rocky coastlines, intimate fishing villages, and its remarkable Snæfellsjökull glacier. This afternoon it’s your choice! Choose a guided Vatnshellir Cave tour to descend into an 8,000-year-old lava tube where you’ll experience total darkness and see amazing rock pigments, lava formations, and more. Or, walk the lava field to enjoy nature’s artwork of varying textures, and colors of this dramatic landscape. We’ll stop at Kirkjufell, acclaimed to be the most photographed mountain in Iceland. Your day concludes with a nature cruise in Breidafjördur Bay. Experience countless birds like puffins, cormorants, kittiwakes and the majestic white tailed eagle soaring amongst basalt rock columns. While cruising, try delicious fresh scallops and sea urchin roe straight from the ocean.

 

Embark on a true Icelandic cultural adventure as you spend time with a family that keeps alive a 400-year-old tradition of catching and preserving Greenland shark. See the fishing boat utilized by their grandfather; the tiny farmer’s church; and explore the museum to learn more about Iceland’s deep relationship with this trade. Before leaving, taste “hákarl,” cured shark meat. Continue the adventure traveling Iceland’s south coast to learn about geothermal renewable energy with a visit to Hellisheiði, the largest power station in Iceland. Make a picture stop at Waterfall Seljalandsfoss, one of few waterfalls providing you with a walkway for views from the inside out. Arrive in Vík, Iceland's most southerly village and one of the most visited sites in Iceland.

 

Drive along the scenic south shore to Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Visitor Center. Learn about a family’s struggle to adapt during and following the dramatic 2010 explosion of the infamous Eyjafjallajökull Volcano that brought European flights to a halt. Visit Skógar Museum which contains an outstanding collection covering all aspects of Icelandic life including farm and domestic artifacts, as well as turf-built houses. Nearby is the impressive Skógafoss waterfall, one of the largest in Iceland. Then, view Reynisfjara, a black volcanic sand beach surrounded by basalt columns and cliffs scattered with caves and rich bird life. Later, see the unique natural rock formations at Dyrhólaey.

 

Set sail among the huge icebergs in the picturesque scenery of Jökulsárlón Glacial  Lagoon. Get to taste the 1,000-year-old ice and possibly see some seals. Later, stop at Skaftafell, gateway to Vatnajökull National Park, the largest national park in Europe. Marvel at the Alpine environment of Iceland’s highest mountains and the Vatnajökull glacier, Europe's largest glacier.

 

Choose how to enjoy your last day in Iceland! Perhaps you’ll embark on a drive to the Reykjanes Peninsula, known for its rugged landscape, lava fields, numerous hot springs, and home to the Blue Lagoon; take a dip in the pleasantly warm, mineral-rich waters of the geothermal pool, located in the middle of a dramatic lava field. Or maybe you’d prefer to further explore the wonders of Iceland’s waters during an informative whale watching adventure in the bay of Faxaflói; have your camera ready for minke and humpback whale sightings, along with white-beaked dolphins and harbor porpoises in their natural habitat. Later, gather with your fellow travelers for a local dining experience and share stories of your days in Iceland.
