    Itinerary

    Day 1: Arrive Reykjavik

    Delve into a mythical land forged by fire and ice. Our epic journey through lush lava fields and the windswept landscapes of Iceland begins in the quirky capital of Reykjavik. Spend time exploring Iceland's Viking heritage and admire the beautiful natural backdrop, before meeting your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception.

    Day 2: Reykjavik - Thingvellir - Gullfoss - Geyser Area - Vik Area

    We leave the capital, journeying through Iceland's volcanic landscapes to Thingvellir National Park, where we will see first-hand how the movements of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates have carved into the earth's crust. Visit the world-famous hot spring area of Geyser and see Strokkur shoot a spectacular plume of water and steam high into the air. Our next stop is the 'Golden Waterfall' of Gullfoss, saved at the turn of the last century by the tenacity of a farmer's daughter who threatened to throw herself into its depths if it was developed for hydroelectric power. Continue along the south shore and stop to admire the waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss, before arriving in the Vík area for dinner.

See the largest glacier in Iceland, the Vatnajokull, before continuing to Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon, for magnificent views of the ice cap and drifting icebergs that melt into obscurity in the lake's waters. This afternoon, 'Dive Into Culture' at the Thorbergur Centre, where you'll learn about one of Iceland's most famous 20th-century writers over cake, and coffee or tea.
