December 9-15, 2017 (Sat-Fri, 7 days)

Iceland is one of those bucket list trips that take your breath away.

While we can’t totally guarantee that you will see the northern lights, we have picked a date that has a really good success rate!  Now, before you ask…..yes, it will be cold….you will wear your warm clothes and you will do like the Icelanders do.  We did this same trip this year (2016) and it sold out in a matter of days, so we are offering it again and at the very same price!

Itinerary

Day 1: Overnight Flight

Discover Iceland, a land and culture forged by fire and ice. Steaming lava fields and massive glaciers sculpt mountains and valleys, leaving thundering waterfalls and plunging fjords. In this land of many natural wonders, enjoy the rare opportunity to see the aurora borealis — one of nature’s most dazzling light displays, also known as the northern lights.

Day 2: Reykjavik, Iceland – Tour Begins

Your tour opens in Reykjavik. Get acquainted with old town Reykjavik on a walking tour featuring Hallgrimskirkja church, City Hall, the harbor and Reykjavik’s oldest building, now home to the Kraum Icelandic design center. Tonight, gather with your fellow travelers at a popular restaurant for dinner featuring Icelandic cuisine. Then, take an exhilarating northern lights cruise. Leave behind the bright city lights and sail out into the darkness of Faxaflói Bay in search of the aurora borealis – or northern lights – one of nature’s wonders. When revealed, you will be dazzled by the flickering display of light bursting with color that unfolds before your eyes. Today dinner will be included.

Day 3: Reykjavik – Golden Circle -Seljalandsfoss Waterfall – Vik

Travel the incredible Golden Circle, a route that encompasses many of Iceland’s most renowned natural wonders. Journey to Thingvellir National Park, the nation’s most historic area. Icelanders gathered here in A.D. 930 and established what is considered one of the world’s first parliaments. Find yourself standing upon one of the globe’s most geologically significant landscapes, Thingvellir’s rugged rift valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site that marks the point where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. Experience the energy of Icelandic culture with a stop at the geothermal fields of Geysir and Strokkur that erupt every few minutes. Then, marvel at the beauty of the Gullfoss (Golden Falls) waterfall, a stunning 100-foot double cascade. Next, see the beautiful Seljalandsfoss, one of Iceland’s most famous and picturesque waterfalls with a walkway behind it. Continue southeast to Vik, the southernmost village in Iceland, surrounded by beautiful valleys, beaches, cliffs and mountains. After dinner, amidst the peace and stillness of rural Iceland, search for the aurora borealis – the elusive northern lights. Today breakfast and dinner will be included.

Day 4: Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Visitor Centre – Skogar Museum – Vik

Drive along the scenic south shore to the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Visitor Centre. Learn about a family’s struggle to live with the lava during and following the dramatic 2010 explosion of the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano that brought European flights to a halt. Visit Skogar Folk Museum, which contains an outstanding collection covering all aspects of Icelandic life including farm and domestic artifacts, as well as turf-built houses. Nearby is the impressive Skógafoss waterfall, one of the largest in Iceland. Later, view Reynisfjara, a black volcanic sand beach surrounded by basalt columns and cliffs scattered with caves and rich bird life including the Fulmar, Black Guillemot, Razorbill, Gannet and various types of seagulls. See the unique natural rock formations at Dyrhólaey. After dinner, gaze at the sky in search of the northern lights, a truly spectacular sight. Today breakfast and dinner will be included.

The largest national park in Europe, Vatnajökull is known for having Iceland’s highest mountains; an Alpine environment; and the Vatnajökull glacier, Europe’s largest glacier. After dinner, continue searching for the shimmering northern lights dancing across the night sky. Today breakfast and dinner will be included.
