Detailed Itinerary

 

Wednesday, May 13: Departure from JFK - 8:35 pm
Direct flight on IcelandAir

 

Thursday, May 14 - The Golden Circle
Arrive in Iceland at 6:30am.  Prepare to venture on the Golden Circle Tour
The Golden Circle Tour encompasses some of the most famous sites in Iceland.  First we will visit the Keridi crater and Faxi waterfall.  From here we will head to the world famous geothermal area of the great Geyser, the one and original hot spring on earth, after which all other hot springs are named after.  We will be able to hike around the bubbling mud pools and venture up a hill to get a panoramic view of the great Geysir.

 

Continuing west, we’ll come to the majestic Gullfoss (The Golden Waterfall).  Here we will walk down to the edge of the cascade, so close that you can even feel the mist from the glacial water on your face.  Next, we will head to Pingvellir National Park, which is one of the country's most significant historic regions.  Pingvellir is an amazing geological site where the meeting of the tectonic plates of North America and Europe form the picturesque landscape.


  
In the evening, we will settle into our beautiful cabins and enjoy a BBQ and Karaoke!

We will make a stop at the Eyjafjallajokull glacier that recedes in size more each year.
Another must see on the south side of Iceland is the black beach.  Here there are scenic views of glaciers, woodlands, and other colorful landscape and the ideal spot for the lovers of pure nature.
