Itinerary

Glaciers, geysers and geothermal hot springs

A living example of nature’s true power – thundering waterfalls, mighty glaciers, black sand beaches, and hot springs make this land of fire and ice an unforgettable experience. Discover the stunning landscapes and natural wonders in this land of geological wonder.

Day 1: Reykjavik
Welcome to Iceland! Upon arrival, take your included transfer to the hotel. Once you are settled in you may want to spend some time exploring this eclectic city. Reykjavik is known for its art scene as well as its nightlife and is also home to many museums.

Day 2: Reykjavik
Relax this morning in the waters of the Blue Lagoon. Fed by geothermal seawater from deep under the lava, the warm waters of the Blue Lagoon are rich in silica, algae, and minerals that soften and rejuvenate the skin. Enjoy a few hours relaxing and exploring the site’s amenities before returning to Reykjavik. This evening, meet your Local Leader at the welcome meeting before heading out on the town for your first authentic meal as a group! (b,d)

Day 3: Reykjavik
Today we travel out to Children's Waterfall to learn about the legend behind the name of this enchanting spot.

The evening is yours to explore! (b)

Day 4: Golden Circle - Hveragerdi
Today, explore the world-famous Golden Circle. Begin in Thingvellir National Park, home to the oldest active parliament in the world — and the meeting place of two tectonic plates. En route to the famed Geysir, we stop at a geothermal bakery for a unique culinary experience. Take in the stunning Strokkur geyser and Old geyser; our last stop is the iconic Golden Waterfall, Gullfoss. Our home tonight is an eco-farmhouse in the town of Hveragerdi. (b)

Day 5: Westman Islands
