Iceland Package Tour
DAY 1: ARRIVAL IN ICELAND(--/--/D) Check in at the airport at least 3 hours before departure. Upon arrival at Reykjavik, meet your Tour Escort then proceed to hotel for check in.
DAY 2: SNAEFELLSNES PENINSULA AND LAVA CAVE(B/--/D) Have your breakfast inside the hotel. This morning we are introduced to the Icelandic sagas in the settlement center in Borgarnes. The Snaefellsnes Peninsula "the peninsula of the snowy mountain" juts out from Iceland's west coast, like a long arm with a clenched fist at its tip, and in many ways a microcosm of the whole island. We travel around the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, through lava fields and along the ocean with many classic Icelandic photo opportunities. We visit the most popular sites at the national park where volcanic craters, lava flows, an ice cap, glaciated peaks, fjords, sandy beaches, and high cliffs shape its landscapes. This lava cave tour takes you 35 meters underground and about 200 meters into the lava cube called Vatnshellir. During the tour you reach two different sections of the cave by a long and narrow staircase. The upper section has great features and unique formations of lava statues curved on the sides of the lava tube. In the lower part of the lava cave you experience total quietness and even total darkness when your guide switches off the light. The total duration of the lava cave tour is approximately one hour. Overnight in the Grundarfjorour / Stykkisholmur area. Possible to view the Northern Lights during the evening as these are most often visible from the hotel directly
. DAY 3: GOLDEN CIRCLE(B/--/D) Have your breakfast inside the hotel. We see classic highlights today.
