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. Overnight in Fludir area.  

Day 3 South Shore - Eyjafjallajokull Volcano

Waterfalls - Glacial Views - Black Sand Beaches

Drive along the South Shore, an area of Iceland that is quite 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. 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. Overnight and northern lights hunt in Kirkjubaejarklaustur area.

Skaftafell National Park is one of Iceland's most outstanding areas of natural beauty dominated by the glacier Vatnajokull, Europe's largest ice cap. 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 

Eyjafjallajokull Volcano Visitor Centre - Greenhouse Village - Geothermal Lagoon

Explore the region near the towering strato-volcano Eyjafjallajokull, which is probably the most famous volcano in the world today. At the Volcano Visitor Centre at Thorvaldseyri farm, located beneath Eyjafjallajokull volcano, you will see both in pictures and film, the 2010 eruption and its impact on the countryside, the country itself and the whole world. 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.
