Northern Lights and Sights of Iceland

October 31 to November 5, 2021

From $2699, Double Occupancy

On this trip we will visit Iceland’s most iconic sites including waterfalls such as the colossal Gullfoss, the enchanting Seljalandsfoss, and the breathtaking Skogafoss. We will explore Thingvellir National Park and walk through the valley where the tectonic plates are drifting apart, tracing the steps of Iceland’s early settlers where brutal Viking-age justice was carried out and the Althingi parliament was founded. We will watch in awe as the geyser Strokkur launches boiling water into the air in the Geyser geothermal area. We will behold the striking basalt columns, supernatural black sand, and immense sea stacks of Reynisfjara on the south coast’s black sand beaches. For any Game of Thrones fans we have included a day-long tour of off-the-beaten-path, breathtaking sites used in filming the show, including waterfalls, rift valleys, medieval villages and more. And of course, we have included a city tour of Reykjavik followed by an afternoon luxuriating in the warm, mineral-rich waters of the Blue Lagoon while you enjoy the surrounding lunar landscape.
