Iceland Vacation Package Details

Iceland is known as the Land of Fire and Ice because of its dramatic natural beauty. Here you can witness nature’s might in a country carved by glaciers, volcanoes, and slowly shifting tectonic plates.

The Golden Circle tour promises to be a highlight of your trip to Iceland. This day trip will take you to the legendary sites of Thingvellir National Park, Strokkur Geyser, and Gullfoss, the Golden Waterfall that shines on sunny days. End your day with tours of Fridheimar geothermal greenhouse and horse farm, including a horse show.

Explore the Reykjanes peninsula, a UNESCO Global Geopark famous for its birds and unusual geological formations including volcanoes. The following day, visit the deep black sand beaches of the tiny village of Vik on The South Coast of Iceland. This day also includes a trip to the spectacular Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls, two of the best-known waterfalls in the country.

You will also visit Europe’s largest hot spring, Deildartunguhve. This natural power source provides the hot water for homes and businesses within a 40-mile radius. Learn about Iceland’s more ancient history at the Settlements Center. There you can discover the story of Egil, Iceland’s most famous “tall tale.” Finally, before your Iceland tour comes to an end, take an optional visit to the famous Blue Lagoon, then hunt for the Aurora Borealis on a late-night Northern Lights pursuit!

Arrive in Reykjavík

Welcome to Reykjavík, one of the cleanest, greenest, and safest cities in the world. This tiny Nordic nation is renowned for its dramatic landscapes and near continuous summer daylight.

Day 3

Golden Circle Tour

Experience the rugged natural beauty of Iceland on its most popular day trip—the legendary Golden Circle tour. See Thingvellir National Park, where evidence of Iceland’s dramatic geological and cultural past is laid bare. Thingvellir is a rift valley, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates collide. It is also the meeting place of Iceland’s parliament, the first in the world, established by 10th century Viking settlers. Strokkur Geyser is the next stop, and one of the most active geysers in the world, where you can watch volcanically heated glacial water explode up to 130 feet in the air several times an hour. Finally, see Gullfoss, the Golden Waterfall that shines a coppery brown on sunny days. Gullfoss is located in the canyon of the Hvítá river, and its dual stage, 105-foot drop, is an impressive conclusion to the Golden circle tour.
End your day with a look at Iceland's innovation. Take a tour of Fridheimar geothermal greenhouse and horse farm, where you will see how Icelandic farmers utilize technology and inventive techniques to grow food year-round. You will also have the chance to watch a horse show starring a team of Icelandic horses—petite yet lionhearted steeds that have been raised throughout Iceland since the 10th century. (B)

Centerhotel Laugavegur or similar

Icelandic Saga History and Europe’s Largest Hot Spring

It sits on farmland and has long been a vital resource for neighboring towns—providing enough hot water for homes and businesses within a 40- mile radius. Its scalding water bubbles out of a rough, algae covered outcrop of rocks, creating a steamy source of power whose might you can see and hear. You'll also visit the spectacular 0.5-mile wide Hraunfossar waterfall, and tragic Barnafoss. During your stop at the Settlements Center, learn about Iceland’s early history, or learn the story of Egil, the Icelandic poet, farmer, and legendary fighter who has become one of Iceland’s most famous “tall tales.” (B)
