DAY 2, Saturday - Reykjavik City Tour, Village of Flúðir
Arrive in Iceland and meet your Tour Manager. Your flights should arrive between 6 and 8 AM on Day 2. Transfer to Reykjavik, the world’s most northerly capital, surrounded by incredible landscapes and countless natural wonders. Your tour begins with a refreshing light breakfast and orientation meeting at Harpa Concert Hall. Your discovery of this modern city begins with a drive past the Old Town Center, Parliament, the cathedral and the bustling harbor area. See Hofdi House, site of the 1986 Iceland Summit where Reagan and Gorbachev met to end the Cold War. Then make a stop at the Pearl vantage point for great views of the capital area and beyond. Depart from Reykjavik to the peaceful village of Flúðir nestled amidst the stillness of rural Iceland. Spend the balance of your evening at leisure, or join the optional Farm Visit with Tasting and Dinner. You'll enjoy a farm to table dinner experience at a local Icelandic dairy farm, where you'll meet the family and gain unique insight into farm life in Iceland
Optional: Farm Visit with Tasting and Dinner (PM)
Overnight: Flúðir

DAY 3, Sunday - Full Day in Flúðir
Enjoy the day at leisure in Flúðir. Just a short walk from your hotel is the geothermal Secret Lagoon where you may choose to spend your day in the outdoor thermal pool. Or, join the optional tour of Iceland's South Coast. Driving from your hotel, admire the gorgeous mountain views including Hekla, the country’s most active volcano, as well as the famous Eyjafjallajökull Volcano. Continue through the region where one of the best known of the Icelandic classical sagas, Njál’s Saga, is set. Stop at the spectacular Skógafoss waterfall, tumbling over high rock escarpments. Next, continue to the charming village of Vik, with free time for lunch on your own. Then on to Dyrhólaey Nature Reserve where you get a beautiful view of the coastline.

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 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. Continue to Reykjavik and check into your hotel. Rest of the day is at leisure

DAY 5, Tuesday - Full Day in Reykjavik
Spend the day at leisure to explore Reykjavik.

Geothermal seawater is led directly to the Blue Lagoon forming wells as deep as 6,000 feet and the water stays warm at 100-110°F throughout the entire year. An indoor Blue Lagoon and geothermal sauna are also on site. The Blue Lagoon's warm water and natural ingredients of mineral salts, silica and blue green algae help you relax and escape the stress and strain of daily life. This evening, join your fellow travelers for a Farewell Reception at the hotel. Dinner is on your own, or join the optional tour to celebrate your last night in Reykjavik by stepping back to the time of the Vikings, at the Viking Village. Savor a traditional three course feast with wine or beer, served in Viking-style trays. Enjoy the jubilant Viking atmosphere and setting as Valkyries and Vikings sing to you as you dine. The feast reaches a climax, when the Fjoru-chieftain crowns one guest as an honorary Viking

    Questions & Answers

    Question: How much are the excursions available on this tour. When do we reserve and pay for optional excursions?

    They do not offer a price list prior to departure, as pricing may vary. Typically you purchase your optionals while on tour with your tour director. You can do this at your first meeting or whenever your tour director advises, as each itinerary is different.

    Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

    Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

    Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

    Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.
