Trade the urban landscape for stunning, rugged countryside as we discover Children’s Waterfall. This remarkable waterfall, off the beaten path, showcases Iceland’s natural beauty.

We will return to Reykjavik to enjoy the evening at leisure. (Breakfast)

Today, the beauty of the Golden Circle awaits. Our first visit is Thingvellir National Park, where we can walk between the European and American tectonic plates. Afterwards we stop at a geothermal bakery for a unique culinary experience, highlighting how the local community harnesses the region’s natural resources. Our adventure continues as we travel to the Geysir area in the Haukadalur valley to see Strokkur spout water and steam next to the original Geyser which is now dormant. Our last stop is the iconic Golden Waterfall, Gullfoss. We will arrive this evening at our countryside hotel, the perfect location for potentially catching the Northern Lights!* Hotel: Hotel Fljotshlid, Hveragerdi (Breakfast, Dinner)

We will continue to the small town of Vik where we will experience the power of molten lava, at a safe distance, during a visit to the Icelandic Lava Show! Together, we’ll learn about the immense geothermal energy that Iceland is known for. Tonight, we’ll head out for another chance to view the Northern Lights. Hotel: Hotel Klaustur, Kirkjubæjarklaustur (Breakfast)
