Explore the “land of fire and ice” with its dramatic volcanic landscape, steaming lava fields, hot springs, thundering waterfalls, glacier-sculpted mountains, black-sand beaches, and, best of all, have the rare opportunity to see the elusive Northern Lights. Begin in Reykjavik—both cosmopolitan and small-town, young-at-heart and full of history—with an old town walking tour and an exhilarating evening cruise to seek out the aurora borealis. Travel the Golden Circle to experience Iceland’s most renowned natural wonders: Thingvellir National Park, the double cascade of spectacular Gullfoss Waterfall and the geothermal fields of Geysir and Strokkur. Spend three nights in Vik—Iceland’s southern-most village—where we’ll search the night sky for the northern lights while surrounded by beaches, cliffs and mountains. See impressive Skógafoss (one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland), a black sand beach, an iceberg-dotted glacial lagoon and Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest glacier. Our holiday winds down at the marvelous Blue Lagoon.
