ICELAND ADVENTURE - 2019

Tour Code - ZR 8 days - REYKJAVIK to REYKJAVIK From $4129 USD

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 tour, you will start and end in Reykjavik, and you'll witness these natural wonders while enjoying fun and unique experiences.

Scenic highlights include 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 Eyjafjallajökull volcano, well known for the eruption that generated the massive ash cloud in 2010, and through the national park at Skaftafell to the Vik area. Enjoy a scenic drive to the lovely blue Lake Mývatn. In one of Iceland's prettiest 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, Vatnajökull, flows into Lake Jökulsárlón, forming icebergs. 

Globus has also included some out-of-the-ordinary experiences to make your Iceland vacation special. In Thingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, walk through the rift valley that marks the separation between two of the world’s major tectonic plates. In Geysir, meet the chef of the restaurant in the geothermal areas, where you'll taste freshly baked bread cooked using the heat from the hot springs. You'll wash it down with a glass of Geysir schnapps. Another unique and unforgettable experience Globus offers is a boat cruise to see whales in their natural habitat!

These are just some of the many highlights of this Iceland tour. Be sure to bring your camera so you can capture the stunning scenery and fun experiences on this wonderful vacation.
