We meander past the colourful façades and iconic attractions of Reykjavik during a sightseeing tour that will include views of Parliament House, the Old Harbor, the National Museum and Laugardalur swimming pool. Admire the imposing hilltop Hallgrímskirkja church, inspired by Iceland's natural beauty. Then, consider joining an Optional Experience to meet the spirited Icelandic horses and experience a horsebank riding tour. Weather permitting, this evening could see you venture out on a Northern Lights drive to catch a glimpse of the ethereal display of motion and colour. 


Day 3: Reykjavik - Golden Circle Excursion - Hella (2 Nights)
We visit the Golden Circle and Thingvellir National Park to trace the gigantic cracks in the earth's crust, formed over millennia as the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia slowly drift apart. Iceland's natural wonders continue to astound as we watch the bubbling mud pits and Strokkur geyser erupt, spouting a spectacular column of boiling water and steam 30 metres into the air. Next up are the glistening frozen waves of majestic Gullfoss, the 'Golden Waterfall', before we journey to the Fridheimar Greenhouse for a fascinating introduction into Icelandic horticulture and a taste of the juicy tomatoes grown there. This evening, dine at your hotel and, if conditions permit, join your Travel Director for a walk in search of the dazzling heavenly display.


Day 4: South Shore Adventure Excursion
Embark on an epic journey through Iceland's extraordinary south coast, a land of Viking legends and mystical natural beauty. Encounter the spectacular waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss and the volcanic midst of Eyjafjallajökull, today completely covered in ice. Visit the Skogar Folk Museum where you will gain a Cultural Insight into Icelandic heritage, then travel to Vik to view the black sand beach. Tonight, we dine at our hotel. 


Day 5: Hella - Blue Lagoon - Reykjanesbær
The extraordinary geothermal feats of Iceland are explored today as we gain a Cultural Insight into the way in which this island harnesses geothermal energy. We'll visit the state-of-the-art Hellisheidi Geothermal exhibition located on an active volcanic ridge, then embark on another Cultural Insight to soak in the healing waters of the world-famous Blue Lagoon, a delicious cocktail in hand. (Please remember to pack your swimwear). Iceland's Viking heritage is next on our agenda during a visit to Viking World, before a Farewell Dinner in a local restaurant with our Travel Director and travel companions. )
