GLOBUS 2018: Iceland Adventure (ZR)

8 days from Reykjavik to Reykjavik

Iceland is a country known for its natural wonders: glaciers, active volcanoes, black-sand beaches, geothermal areas, roaring rivers, majestic waterfalls, and beautiful lakes. On this Iceland escorted tour, you will start and end in Reykjavik, and you'll witness these natural wonders while enjoying exciting and unique experiences.

Scenic highlights include the mighty Gullfoss waterfall and Goðafoss - known as the "Waterfall of the Gods." Take pictures at Dettifoss, the most powerful waterfall in Europe (road conditions permitting). Drive by Eyjafjallajokull volcano, well known for the eruption that generated the massive ash cloud in 2010, and through the national park at Skaftafell to the Rangarping Eystra area. Enjoy a scenic drive to the lovely blue Lake Myvatn. In one of Iceland's most beautiful areas and with volcanic craters throughout the lake, it is teeming with bird life and is known for its geothermal activity. Also watch how Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajokull, flows into Lake Jokulsarlon, forming icebergs.

In Thingvellir - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - walk through the rift valley that marks the separation between the North American and European tectonic plates. In Geysir, walk with the chef of the Geysir restaurant through the geothermal areas, where you'll taste freshly baked bread cooked using the heat from the hot springs. You may wish to pair it with a traditional glass of geysir schnapps. Another unique and unforgettable experience on your tour is a boat cruise to see whales in their natural habitat or, based upon the season, witnessing the Northern Lights.

These are just some of the many highlights of this spectacular guided tour of Iceland.
