After breakfast meet the tour guide who will show you the highlights of Iceland’s exciting capital city. After the city tour, head west to Borgarfjörður, known as the Saga Valley because of its many important historical events. Get a chance to climb the Grábrók Volcano crater and visit Deildartunguhver, one of Europe’s most powerful hot springs which produces 180L of water per second which is nearly boiling at 97° Celsius. In the valley you will also visit Hraunfossar, a series of waterfalls pouring from beneath a wide lava field. Next visit nearby Barnafoss – the children’s falls, with its own tragic tale.

The afternoon includes a lecture about the Northern Lights - this is the beginning of the six-night Northern Lights Academy (see the Important Information for more details). After dinner (not included) step into the hotel garden in search of the Northern Lights followed by a hot cup of hot chocolate or tea.

Overnight: Icelandair Hotel Hamar or similar, Borganes
Meals included: Breakfast

Today head to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, “the peninsula of the snowy mountain“, located on Iceland’s west coast, and in many ways a microcosm of the whole island. The region is characterised by a rugged mountain chain that runs its length. Travel to the charming fishing town of Stykkishólmur for a cruise in the Breiðafjörður Fjord. After a light lunch (included), a uniquely Icelandic “treat“ awaits you at Bjarnarhöfn, where they make Hákarl – fermented shark. Depending on road and weather conditions, visit the fishing village of Grundarfjörður, a place with an impressive coastline, mountains, lakes and waterfalls behind the village. Jutting out into the bay rises one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland, Mt. Kirkjufell. On the way back to Borgarnes the guide will give you some practical tips on how to photograph the Aurora. Naturally, once darkness falls head out into the hotel garden to look for the Northern Lights and perhaps even enjoy a soak in the hotel’s outdoor hot tubs.

Overnight: Icelandair Hotel Hamar or similar, Borganes
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch

Today travel along the Hvalfjörður Fjord. The first stop is at an Icelandic wool outlet store to see what they do with all those sheep! Continue inland to Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Travel the Golden Circle route and see steam rising from the Geysir geothermal fields as you arrive. There are a variety of hot springs and bubbling pools to explore. The original geyser is now dormant but has been replaced by Strokkur, “the Churn”, which erupts at 5-10 minute intervals. The chef of the Restaurant Geysir invites you to taste freshly baked hot spring bread served with Icelandic butter, geothermal boiled eggs and herring. It’s best served with a small glass of Geysir Schnapps, very cold – nearly freezing. Head to Gullfoss, a double waterfall that tumbles 34m into the Hvítá River and attracts tourists and travellers in both summer and winter. In the afternoon, you will learn about Icelandic horses, their special qualities and history before visiting a geothermal greenhouse. Afterwards continue onwards to the accommodation in south Iceland. Tonight, step into the darkness and search for the elusive Northern Lights. You can choose to search for the lights from a comfortable hot tub in the garden of the hotel, amidst the peace and stillness of rural Iceland.

Overnight: Landhotel or similar, Hella
Meals included: Breakfast

Today travel along the south coast of Iceland to the Lava and Volcano Exhibition Centre, (entrance included) where you will learn about the geology of active volcanoes. Further east visit one of Iceland’s finest folk museums (entrance included). This museum contains an outstanding collection of farm and domestic artefacts from Iceland’s past and several turf built houses. Nearby is Skógafoss Waterfall which is 60m high and one of the most impressive waterfalls in the country. In the afternoon take a stroll on the black lava beach and along bird cliffs at Reynisfjara in south Iceland. Spend the next two nights near Kirkjubæjarklaustur in the Vatnajökull National Park region, located in darkness and ideal for Northern Lights searching.

Overnight: Fosshotel Núpar or similar, Kirkjubæjarklaustur
Meals included: Breakfast

Today is all about glaciers, ice and icebergs. Travel to Jökulsárlón, a glacial lagoon filled with floating icebergs, and explore the extraordinary site. If you are lucky you might spot seals swimming in the arctic waters. You can also walk along the black sandy beach where large icebergs get stranded. In the afternoon visit the tiny turf church at Hof and spend time at Europe’s largest national park, which has Iceland’s highest mountains, an alpine environment, and Europe’s largest glacier. In the evening enjoy a film presentation about the Northern Lights. Be careful not to go to bed too soon in this remote and quiet location or you may just miss out on one more chance of seeing the Northern Lights shimmering and dancing across the night sky.

Overnight: Fosshotel Núpar or similar, Kirkjubæjarklaustur
Meals included: Breakfast

From Kirkjubæjarklaustur head across the Eldhraun Lava Field to the village of Vík, where you will make a photo stop.

In the afternoon enjoy a soak in the famous Blue Lagoon (entrance and towel included).

Northern Lights:
This program includes a special six-night Northern Lights Academy – which means that during six evenings there is a combination of presentations, lectures, a film and guided searches for the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights. All countryside hotels in this program offer a Northern Lights wake up call for guests that register for that special service at the hotel reception. The Northern Lights Exploration series are designed to spend 6 evenings in the countryside to maximise the chances of seeing the elusive Northern Lights, still the tour is dependent on weather and therefore sightings are not guaranteed. The Northern Lights are in the northern hemisphere from September through April but are only visible when the sky is clear and free of clouds. Like many natural wonders, the Northern Lights are ephemeral – they may be visible, they may appear for a bit and then be gone (it is not a TV show that you can just turn on and off). But it is worth the patience which is much required. Because they are a winter event, you need to be prepared to wait outside while looking for them. It is best to dress very warmly, in layers, with good footwear, gloves, hats and whatever else makes you comfortable while you wait patiently for this truly outstanding event. For the best photos, a tripod is recommended.
 
TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Iceland enjoys a moderate maritime climate: cool in summer and fairly mild in winter. It is an island in the North Atlantic, nestled against the Arctic Circle, so the weather is very changeable and visitors should be prepared for the unexpected. Normal winter temperatures, like October and November range between 0-5 °C. When it comes to Iceland’s weather — the one thing you can count on is unpredictability. You never know what is going to happen next! A beautiful sunny day can suddenly turn windy and rainy – then it can all change again in a moment. You may experience every weather imaginable over the course of a few days, especially in late autumn and early spring. Important to remember when packing: Iceland is a very windy place! The best plan is to be prepared for anything and everything AND always dress in layers. The Icelanders have a saying: "there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing."
