Today, we experience the forces of nature in action! Our journey takes us to Iceland’s south coast, a geological hot spot, where waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers, black sand beaches, and peculiar rock formations are among the many attractions. Our specialised guide will enlighten us about the area’s rich history and show us the aftermath of the recent eruption at the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Later, we return to our accommodation in the Hekla region for dinner and another overnight stay.

Day 3

As we travel along the famous “Golden Circle” route today, we first visit the Geysir geothermal area to see the colourful mineral deposits, mud pots, steam vents, and spouting hot springs. Next we stop at one of Europe’s most powerful waterfalls, Gullfoss, a protected landmark that was once the centre of controversy as a potential site for a power station. We then visit Þingvellir National Park, situated in an extraordinary rift valley formed by the separation of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Finally, this phenomenal day is topped off with a tour of a geothermal power plant and a greenhouse that harnesses this natural energy. Overnight stay is at a hotel in central Reykjavík.

Day 4

It’s now time to head home full of knowledge about Iceland’s geological wonders, but not until we take a dip in the Blue Lagoon! This geothermal spa on the Reykjanes Peninsula is situated in the youngest lava field in western Iceland. After a soothing soak in the mineral-rich waters surrounded by strange lava formations, we will transfer you to Keflavík International Airport in time for your chek-in.
