1 The Viking City of Reykjavík
Welcome to Iceland. At Reykjavík's Keflavík Airport, you will be welcomed and transferred to your hotel. Join your Travel Director and travelling companions at 18:15 for your Welcome Reception and enjoy the opportunity to get to know each other, over a pleasant evening of wine and a light buffet. 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: Fosshotel Reykjavík.
2 South Shore Adventure to Vík

Take a journey through the stunning landscape of Iceland's south coast and through the land of Njál‘s Saga – a region of breathtaking scenery and legendary stories. Visit Iceland's newest geothermal heat and electric power station at Hellisheiđarvirkjun. 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. See the magnificent Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull volcanoes. Travel to the modern Lava Centre in Hvolsvöllur, dedicated to Iceland's riveting volcanic activity and earthquakes. Later, you arrive in the welcoming community of Vik. Perhaps enjoy another chance to go in search of the mystical northern lights? (B/D) Stay: Hótel Kría, Vik.

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. Experience the exploding hot springs at Geysir and the mighty Gullfoss waterfalls, the Icelandic equivalent of Niagara Falls. Next stop is Friðheimar, to learn about 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: Flúðir Icelandair Hotel.
4 Thingvellir, Borgarnes and Húsafell

In Fontana, visit a geothermal bakery to sample the delicious rye bread, dug hot from the ground and served with butter. Continue to Thingvellir, a remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site that lies on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge line, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet.

The first meeting of the Icelandic parliament was held here in A.D. 930. Journey along the trail of Viking warrior and poet Egill Skallagrímsson and stop at Reykholt for an orientation with your Travel Director. In Borgarnes, learn about Iceland's history with a fascinating visit to the Icelandic Settlement Centre. Enjoy views of the Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls as you drive through glorious landscapes. Your travels continue to Deildartunguhver, Europe's most powerful hot spring.

5 Reykjavík Sightseeing
Journey back to the capital of Reykjavík, where a Local Expert will show you Old Reykjavík, the 19th century parliament building and Höfði House. In 1986, US President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev met here for the famous Reykjavík Summit. Continue to see the colourful harbour and the modern, landmark church, the Hallgrímskirkja, which can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. The afternoon is at leisure. (B) Stay: Fosshotel Reykjavík.
6 Choice In Reykjavik
Explore Reykjavik with Insight Choice. Choose between experiencing the magic of Iceland on an exhilarating flight-ride experience at FlyOver, to see incredible scenery from sweeping glaciers to stunning fjords or alternatively, relax in the Blue Lagoon. Surrounded by lava fields and snow-capped mountains, the lagoon is a wonder of nature and offers a unique experience for both body and soul. With your newfound friends, toast to the culmination of your fascinating journey of discovery during a celebratory dinner at a local restaurant. (B/DW)
