Visit the classical sights of South West Iceland known as the The Golden Circle - a collection of Iceland's most popular natural wonders and geological phenomena. The many highlights of this tour include the volcanic crater lake Kerid, Gullfoss waterfall, the queen of Iceland’s waterfalls that tumbles down a deep meandering gorge, and the nearby world-famous Geysir geothermal field, where hot springs are in abundance, geysers explode and pools of mud bubble. The most active geyser, Strokkur, spouts water high into the air every 15 minutes. A visit to the Geysir museum is also included, an informative multimedia exhibition that vividly shows how the forces of nature shaped the country and the people. Finally, but no less spectacular is a visit to the Thingvellir National Park, an area of exceptional beauty and the original site of the oldest existing parliament in the world. The Great Atlantic Rift is also clearly visible here. (B)

A stop will be made for lunch (optional) at Vik i Myrdal, Iceland’s southernmost village, surrounded by beautiful cliffs, full of birdlife in the spring and summer months.

DAY 5
BLUE LAGOON TO UK
BLUE LAGOON TO UK
Transfer to the airport via the Blue Lagoon for a chance to enjoy a unique bathing experience. The Blue Lagoon is located south-west of Reykjavik near the fishing village of Grindavik on the Reykjanes Peninsula. A high-temperature geothermal field supplies the hot water to the Reykjanes district and steam to run the power plant, and it is the mineral-rich overflow water from this operation that fills the lagoon. The geothermal water is pumped up from 2,000 metres below the Earths surface and high levels of silica, minerals and algae give the lagoon its rich blue colour. In the long summer daylight, the Lagoon is exciting, invigorating and superbly relaxing – an experience not to be missed!. (B)
