Start the day by visiting the fascinating Northern Lights Centre in Reykjavik for an exciting and informative presentation on the Northern Lights. Onwards to Thingvellir National Park (UNESCO) where the world's oldest parliament met for centuries on the shores of Iceland's largest lake. Drive to Laugarvatn Fontana where your group experiences a geothermal bakery first-hand and digs up bread that has been cooked underground. Sample the delicious bread, served hot from the ground with some fresh Icelandic butter. Continue through farmland areas to the geothermal fields of Geysir with bubbling mud pools and the high spouting Strokkur hot spring. Last but not least, visit the dramatic two-tiered Gullfoss waterfall, a spectacular sight in winter when frozen mid-cascade. Stop at Skalholt, Iceland's capital during the Middle-Ages and now a culture centre with a beautiful church. Overnight in the south coast area.  

Day 3 South Shore - Eyjafjallajokull Volcano

Waterfalls - Glacial Views - Black Sand Beaches - Lava Centre

Drive along the South Shore, an area of Iceland that is beautiful to view in the winter. This is one of the main farm regions of the country and the road will pass by typical Icelandic farms, often with Icelandic horses in the fields. This part of Iceland is home to the new Lava Centre, an interactive, high-tech educational exhibition depicting volcanic activity, earthquakes and the creation of Iceland over millions of years. Stop at the spectacular waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. Head onwards, passing by Myrdalsjokull Glacier to visit Reynisfjara beach. Take a walk on the black sands, admiring the extraordinary rock formations and thundering waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Dinner and overnight stay in Kirkjubaejarklaustur area.    

Day 4  Skaftafell National Park - Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon

Europe's Largest National Park - Glacial Lagoon with Icebergs - Europe's Largest Glacier

Today we enter the area of Vatnajokull National Park, named after Europe's largest glacier. This national park is also the largest one in Europe. The park's Skaftafell region is a site of natural beauty, dominated by Vatnajokull glacier.  View Svinafellsjokull, one of the most beautiful of the glacial outlets emerging from Vatnajokull. Continue to Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon where you can enjoy a breathtaking sight of floating icebergs on the fantastic 180m deep glacial lagoon. Return to the hotel for dinner and overnight.    

Day 5 Volcanic Areas - Hveragerdi - Blue Lagoon - Reykjavik 

Greenhouse Village - Thundering Waves - Geothermal Lagoon

Head towards the village of Hveragerdi which is one of the few sites in the world located directly on top of a geothermal area. Hveragerdi is often called 'the flower village' because of its many greenhouses heated by hot water from nearby springs. The tour continues to Strandarkirkja, a church that is widely believed to have a special power to aid success or provide good luck. Follow along the coast with breathtaking sea waves and through a community that once was a flourishing centre for the region. On to the Reykjanes peninsula where you can enjoy a dip in  the famous Blue Lagoon, a unique wonder of nature with pleasantly warm mineral rich geothermal water in the middle of a black lava field.  Return to Reykjavik where the evening is at your own leisure.
