Day 2, THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

At 08:30 meet your tour guide and start the escorted tour program with a short introduction to Icelandic geology while watching a striking film at the Reykjavik Volcano House documenting the eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull and Fimmvörđuháls in 2010. At the Volcano House, you can experience a hands-on geological exhibition where you can examine various pieces of pumice, ash, and lava from Icelandic volcanoes. Later on, we depart from Reykjavik and drive to Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site, we continue to explore the hot springs at Geysir. Next, we travel to the double waterfall, Gullfoss. We continue to Keriđ, a caldera with a crater lake on the bottom and which resembles an ancient amphitheatre. In the evening, you hear about the Northern Lights from your tour guide. Naturally, once darkness falls, you are out in the garden waiting for the Northern Lights. We will stay for one night in South Iceland.

Day 3, VATNAJÖKULL NATIONAL PARK, GLACIER LAGOON & DIAMOND BEACH

A long drive brings us to a world of glaciers, ice, and icebergs. We travel Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest national park and glacier and to Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon which is filled with floating icebergs. You can walk on the black sandy beach, the so-called Diamond Beach, where large icebergs get stranded. Tonight you can enjoy a movie presentation about Northern Lights as a part of the Northern Lights educational program. Be careful not to go to bed too soon in this remote and quiet location, or you may just miss out one more chance of seeing the Northern Lights shimmering and dancing across the night sky.

A la Carte dinner is on your own.
