Day 2 - The Golden Circle and South Shore

This morning, you will meet your guide and the rest of the tour group you will spend the next 3 days with. Meeting is at the hotel reception at 8:45 am.

First, we tour the renowned Golden Circle including a visit to National Park and Rift Valley at Thingvellir where the North American and European tectonic plates are drifting apart. Thingvellir is also the place where the ancient Icelandic parliament was established in 930. Then we head for the famous Geysir hot spring area, where Strokkur erupts every few minutes. We also visit Gullfoss the largest two-stepped waterfall in Iceland. After visiting these world famous sights we continue to a local horse stable and a greenhouse where they grow organic tomatoes all year round. We drive through the landscapes of south Iceland to our accommodation near the town of Vik, where we stay for 2 nights at Hotel Katla. If weather permits, we head for a Northern Lights hunt, the guide chooses the night based on the prospects.

Stay 2 nights at Hotel Katla or similar in South Iceland, including breakfast.


Day 3 - Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

We head east, along the southern shore to the unique Jökulsarlón Glacier Lagoon. The lagoon developed around 60 years ago with continuous process of calving and falling of icebergs from the glacier tongue Breidamerkurjökull. These icebergs are seen in two shades, one type in milky white, while the other type is in bright blue colour, which is an interplay of light and ice crystals. The lagoon is filled with fishes that drift in from the sea along with the tides. Seals gather in large numbers at the mouth of the lagoon to catch the fish during winter, which is a sight to be seen. On the way back to Vik, we also visit Skaftafell national park.


Day 4 - Volcanoes, Waterfalls and Blue Lagoon

The final highlight before getting back to Reykjavik is the spectacular Blue Lagoon. You have a choice of viewing the lagoon or enjoy soaking in the mineral rich water with its fine silica mud (bathing admission not included and must be pre-booked). In the late afternoon, we arrive in Reykjavik, where you will stay for your last night.
