With its amazing Northern Lights, glaciers, icebergs, geothermal areas, roaring rivers, majestic waterfalls, and beautiful lakes, Iceland is a country steeped in breathtaking natural wonders. On this Iceland tour, you’ll witness these natural wonders while enjoying fun and unique experiences.
Scenic highlights include Iceland’s most famous waterfall, mighty Gullfoss, which plummets down 105 feet over two stages into a rugged canyon. Drive through the national park at Skaftafell and stop at Lake Jökulsárlón, the deepest lake in Iceland. Watch how Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, flows into the lake and forms icebergs. Another scenic drive gives you the opportunity to see Skogafoss Waterfall, one of Iceland’s biggest waterfalls, and Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, which is a unique waterfall with a foot path behind it.
Throughout this Iceland tour, Globus has also included some out-of-the-ordinary experiences to make your vacation unique. In Thingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, walk through the rift valley that marks the separation between the North American and European tectonic plates. In Geysir, walk with the chef of the Geysir restaurant through 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! You’ll also visit Hellisheiðavirkjun, one of the world’s largest geothermal power stations.
Throughout this Iceland tour, you’ll be accompanied by a Tour Director dedicated to showing you this stunning country and teaching you about its culture and heritage. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime vacation!
