Halló! Today you’ll meet your fellow travellers, along with your gay Icelandic guide at approximately 5PM, before we ramble through Reykjavík by foot. We’ll then head out for an optional dinner at one the nation’s best restaurants. If the jet lag hasn’t yet dragged you down, we’ll then hit the town and throw it down.
Today begins bright and early with our South Shore Safari. In this magnificent part of Iceland we’ll encounter black sand beaches, mythical rock formations, wondrous waterfalls and many farms (where we may even get to meet some small but sensational Icelandic horses). We’ll even walk the famous Sólheimajökull Glacier — note: this can be a difficult activity for anyone with mobility issues. After our glacier trek we’ll then check into our hotel for the evening, with dinner and local delicacies to kick off our stay. The rest of the night is yours to indulge in the hotel’s amazing hot tubs…and hopefully see the Northern Lights!
Today is devoted to a road trip along Iceland’s famous Golden Circle. You’ll see the massive rift between two tectonic plates that are literally pulling apart at Thingvellir National Park. You’ll be mesmerized by the magic and rage of Gullfoss Waterfall. And finally, we’ll visit the ‘Great Geysir’, the first geyser known to modern Europeans. We’ll then return to Reykjavík for an optional dinner, followed by an Icelandic house party…which is only a warm-up for a big night out on the town.
Sleep in and take it easy this morning. Before long, tour guide will bring you to the world famous Blue Lagoon so you can soak in the amazing indigo waters. This will be followed by a short tour of the Reykjanes Peninsula, and a visit to a couple of geothermal hot spots. The day – and our journey – ends back in Reykjavík for an optional Farewell Dinner and another night on the town.
There are no activities planned today, so you are free to depart at your leisure. Safe travels!
