Your tour begins with a refreshing breakfast and orientation meeting at Harpa Concert Hall.

Then, 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.
