ICELAND

As of printing, the entire population of Iceland is scheduled to receive the Covid-19 vaccine by the end of May, 2021

Day 1: Overnight flight

Fly to Reykjavik. (D, B in flight)

Day 2: Welcome to Iceland

After an overnight flight, arrive in Reykjavik and enjoy an introductory tour of the capital of Iceland, the northernmost capital in the world, before a short journey to Hella for a 5-night stay at the Stracta Hotel. There is an Icelandic horse farm located next to the Stracta Hotel, affording an opportunity for you to see these iconic animals up close (time permitting). D

Day 3: Golden Circle An awe-inspiring visit to three of Iceland's most important spots: Gullfoss Waterfall, Geyser Hot Springs and Þingvellir National Park. Gullfoss, "the golden falls", is a double waterfall that tumbles 34 meters into the Hvítá River. See the steam from the Geysir geothermal fields as you arrive. The original geyser is now dormant and has been replaced by Strokkur, “the Churn", which erupts at 5-10-minute intervals. Next stop is the ancient Viking Parliament area of Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. B, D

Day 4: South Shore with optional glacier hike

Highlights today include the famous Eyjafjallajökull Volcano, the 60-meterhigh Skógafoss Waterfall and the narrow Seljalandsfoss Waterfall with a trail that leads behind the falls – be prepared to get wet! Visit Skogar Folk Museum with a selection of turf houses. Take an optional glacier walk (additional expense, hiking boots required) or a visit to the bird cliffs and lava beaches near Vík. B, D

Day 5: Westman Islands

Ahoy! Take a short ferry ride to the Westman Islands. Explore the town of Heimaey and this extraordinary island by foot and by bus. The volcanic eruption here in 1973 is considered the largest natural disaster in Iceland in recent history. After the evacuation of the inhabitants, and during the 5 months while the eruption lasted, there was much uncertainty as to whether the island could ever be repopulated. During our tour to the Westman Islands we explore bird cliffs, walk up the volcano crater and visit "Pompeii of the North", a volcanic excavation project. Enjoy a free afternoon to wander around the town of Heimaey. B, D
