Then make a stop at the Pearl vantage point for great views of the capital area and beyond. Depart from Reykjavik to visit the Hellisheiði Power Plant at the foot of Mt. Hengill Volcano, where the Earth's most brutal forces are harnessed and converted to clean energy for space heating.* Afterward, continue to the peaceful village of Hella nestled amidst the stillness of rural Iceland. After dinner, meet your tour guide to search the skies for the Northern Lights* (Aurora Borealis) from the comfort of the hotel grounds*Due to renovations at Hellisheiði Power Plant between Nov 29 and Dec 19, groups will visit the Nesjavellir Power Plant instead during this time.

Then, on to the Geysir area with its numerous hot springs, fumaroles and geysers, including the world-famous Strokkur Geysir – watch it erupt every few minutes spewing hot water high into the air. At the remarkable geological and historical area of Þingvellir, visit the site of the world's oldest democratic parliament founded in 930 AD, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the stunning canyon that runs through the park, stand on the dividing fault line between two of the earth’s tectonic plates. Lunch follows at the family-run Friðheimar Greenhouse, a unique cultivation center. You’ll be astounded by the magic behind growing delicious, pesticide-free tomatoes and cucumbers with the aid of geothermal heat. A short and informative talk is followed by a tomato tasting.
