What To Expect:
Iceland Travel Tour Highlights
Your Icelandic escape will begin the moment you touchdown! Be whisked from the plane to the Reykjanes peninsula for a Nordic breakfast and a leisurely day at the Blue Lagoon—your skin will glow and your muscles will unwind. Your second day will follow the Golden Circle. Considered Iceland’s most famed circuit of natural sites, the Golden Circle leads visitors to bubbling hot springs amidst active geysers, dramatic waterfalls, craters filled with glassy waters, and ends at Þingvellir National Park. Here you’ll have the chance to snorkel the Silfra fissure. If you’ve ever seen photos of arctic divers in a vividly blue, crystal-clear canyon, chances are they’re taken at the Silfra fissure in Þingvelli. After an expedition-packed day, you’ll relax at the Ion Hotel. Emerging on stilts from moss-laden lava fields, the Ion Hotel is a striking testament to sustainable design. Enjoy the outdoor thermal pool, nightcaps in the glass-walled bar (perfect for viewing the Northern Lights), and herbal treatments at the Lava Spa. From here, head for the highlands, cutting your way through the barren mountain pass from Kaldidalur to Langjökull where you’ll be rewarded by a mammoth-sized glacier, vast lava caves, and a sailing picnic with traditional Breiðafjörður fare. Re-acclimate to city lights and festive streets in Reykjavik before returning home.
