Our 3 night Iceland Tour features the main highlights this fascinating country has to offer. Known as the land of Fire & Ice, it is also known as the land of Light & Darkness. Long summer days with near 24 hours of sunshine are offset by sort winter days with only a few hours of daylight.
Volcanic activity is a fact of life in Iceland, where people have learned to live with both its drawbacks, and considerable advantages, such as geothermal energy and dramatic natural environment. It is one of the most volcanically active areas on earth. On average, Iceland experiences a volcanic event every 5 years.
This same geological activity is also responsible for some of the most dramatic features of Icelandic nature. The mountainous landscapes, black lava fields and geothermal pools and geysers are the result of continuous interplay between volcanic activity and the natural elements. Over 90% of housing in Iceland is heated by natural geothermal heat – one of the cheapest and cleanest forms of energy in existence. Hot springs can be found almost everywhere, and the melt water created by sub-glacial volcanoes provides the country with a potential source of hydroelectric power. All this clean energy has made Iceland one of the least polluted countries in the world.
Our 3 night Iceland Tour starts with a visit to the Blue Lagoon, a natural geothermal pool in the middle of a large lava field. Spend time here having a relaxing swim or bathe in the rejuvenating warm mineral rich water famed for its healing properties. The next day your Iceland Tour will explore several of the famous highlights Iceland has to offer during our Golden Circle full day tour. This will take you to Thingvellir National Park, home to Iceland’s largest lake – Thingvallavatn; the renown Gullfoss waterfall (Golden Falls) and then onto the geothermal area of Haukadalur which contains Iceland’s famous geysers and hot springs. The following day we will take you on a half day guided tour of Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland and the oldest settlement in Iceland dating back to the 9th century. The centre of Reykjavik is a maze of narrow alleys framed with old timber houses.
Of course no visit to Iceland would be complete without a search for the magical Northern Lights. Our Experience will take you on a 3 hour tour in the evening in search of this phenomenon.
The best time to see the Northern Lights in Iceland is between September and April.
