1 The Viking City of Reykjavík.
Welcome to Iceland. At Reykjavík's Keflavík Airport, transfers depart for your hotel at 08:00 and 15:00. Join your Travel Director and travelling companions at 18:15 for your Welcome Dinner and enjoy the opportunity to get to know each other over a pleasant evening of good food and wine. Afterwards, search for the most spectacular show on earth - the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. See the breathtaking night sky filled with an array of different colours. Please note: The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and therefore sightings cannot be guaranteed. (DW) Stay: Iceland air Hotel Natura, Reykjavík.
2 South Shore Adventure to Vík.
Take a journey through the stunning landscape of Iceland's south coast to visit its newest geothermal heat and electric power station at Hellisheiðavirkjun. Travel to the modern Lava Centre in Hvolsvöllur. Opened in 2017, it is dedicated to Iceland's riveting volcanic activity and earthquakes. Your journey continues as you witness the majesty of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Stand awestruck by the beauty and powerful force of these thundering waterfalls before venturing on to view more phenomena. After seeing the magnificent Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull volcanoes, arrive in the welcoming communtiy of Vík. Later, perhaps enjoy another chance to go in search of the mystical Northern Lights? (B/D) Stay: Icelandair Hotel Vík.
3 The Golden Circle to Flúðir.
Embark on a day of discovery around Iceland's Golden Circle, taking in some of the famous landmarks this magical country has to offer. In Fontana, visit a geothermal bakery to sample the delicious rye bread, dug hot from the ground and served with butter. Experience the exploding hot springs at Geysir and the mighty Gullfoss waterfalls, the Icelandic equivalent of Niagara Falls. Next stop is Friðheimar, to find out about the processes in Icelandic greenhouse horticulture. Visit a family-run vegetable farm that specialises in tomatoes. Explore their greenhouses and sample the sweet, unique flavour of their lovingly-grown crop. Continue to your hotel in Flúðir, where there is again a chance to look to the night sky and watch nature's theatre unfold. (B/D) Stay: Icelandair Hotel Flúðir.
4 Thingvellir, Borgarnes and Húsafell.

“Iceland is amazing!”
- NSW, Australia Oct 2017 4 Helpful Votes

Iceland is amazing! I had just done another coach tour with a different group demographic and found the group for the Iceland tour did not gel as well, although they were friendly enough. A little bit unorganised at times with hotel check-ins but overall a lovely trip.
