Reykjavik - Golden Circle Excursion - Hella (2 Nights)
We visit the Golden Circle and Thingvellir National Park to trace the gigantic cracks in the earth's crust, formed over millennia as the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia slowly drift apart. Iceland's natural wonders continue to astound as we watch the bubbling mud pits and Strokkur geyser erupt, spouting a spectacular column of boiling water and steam 30 metres into the air. Next up are the glistening frozen waves of majestic Gullfoss, the 'Golden Waterfall', before we journey to the Fridheimar Greenhouse for a fascinating introduction into Icelandic horticulture and a taste of the juicy tomatoes grown there. This evening, dine at your hotel and, if conditions permit, join your Travel Director for a walk in search of the dazzling heavenly display. (BB/D) Stay: Stracta

A week in an Icelandic winter did not disappoint despite the short daylight hours. The scenery, and ever-changing landscapes are just amazing so bring a big memory card. The weather is really unpredictable though, so pack clothing you can layer, thermals and good winter-proof coat waterproof boots. Trafalgar provide "crampon's" to fit over shoes so this definitely helped with the icy paths. I was surprised how expensive Iceland is so be sure to keep to stick to a budget as its very easy to overspend. Of course the northern lights was the number one thing to see, however due to poor weather and lack of solar activity it was not meant to be this time.

We had an amazing trip with Trafalgar in Iceland and it was a Christmas we'll never forget. We had an excellent Icelandic tour guide and driver who helped us understand the culture and history of this unique and incredible country. We would love to go back.

We really enjoyed this trip with Trafalgar. The hotels were a great quality, the places visited were unhurried and extremely informative. The Tour guide Gulla was invested in keeping us happy, which we appreciated. The tomato greenhouse was amazing to see as well as the tomato soup for lunch. the waterfalls, the geothermal plant, the blue lagoon, the horses, the museums were all as I would expect from Iceland. They were all amazing!! A couple of suggestions though - extra activities would have been welcomed. In saying that, Gulla organized a snowmobiling ride on a glacier and also organized a final night to see the northern lights even though they weren't on the trip itinerary. These we paid extra for, but could have been included in the optional extras package. Luckily Gulla realized we wanted these extras and organized them for us at the last minute.

Booking through Global journeys was so super easy. Yvonne contacted me within the day of our tour quote request and everything was sorted within a couple of days. All paper work was received in good time and everything was complete. I would definitely book the Global Journeys again!

Booking With Global Journeys
The experience of booking this tour with Global Journeys was a joy, as always, and we will book with you again. However, Trafalgar tours are expensive than most of the other tour operators, so a better quality of accommodation, food and itinerary is expected. We believe the tour did not meet our expectations. The welcome dinner at Reykjavik was just sliced tomatoes on a piece of bread, and the farewell dinner was just soup and bread. Hotel accommodation on two nights out of four nights was very ordinary. The tour guide would benefit from acquiring better people and planning skills.
