Iceland boasts some of the great natural wonders of the world: active volcanoes, glaciers, black sand beaches, geysers and hot springs. Winter is a beautiful time of year to visit with the chance to see the amazing Aurora Borealis in the night sky. Your stay begins at the Blue Lagoon, a celebrated geothermal pool in a wonderful setting of black volcanic rocks, a perfect introduction to the country. The Hotel Ranga is an ideal location to see the Northern Lights. We’ll tour the south coast of Iceland including the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano and the waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss with visits to Solheimajökull and Reynishverfi beach. Not to be missed is the Golden Circle where the volcanic crater lake of Kerith and the spouting hot spring Geysir at nearby Strokkur are found.

Golden Circle excursion to the volcanic crater lake of Kerith, the broad cataracts of Gulfoss waterfall. You will see the spouting hot spring Geysir, from which our word geyser is derived. The original Geysir only erupts a couple of times a day, but you can visit the spring at nearby Strokkur, which erupts every five or ten minutes, sometimes up to 40 metres high. Also visit the historic site of Thingvellir, where the original Icelandic parliament used to meet. The land at Thingvellir is marked by mighty fissures in the earth as it is located at the meeting of the great Eurasian and North American continental plates.
