December 10 – 22, 2021
Welcome to Iceland! Arrive at Keflavik Airport (KEF) and transfer to your premier boutique hotel, where you will spend the rest of the day at your leisure. In the late afternoon we’ll gather for a meet and greet cocktail reception followed by a sensational welcome dinner at a Michelin Guide restaurant. This intimate restaurant brings flavors and flair from the coastline of Northern African to Lebanon to Icelandic cuisine.
Enjoy a marvelous breakfast before our private transport scoops us away to set off to Thingvellir National Park — A UNESCO World Heritage Site mixed with fascinating Icelandic history and natural beauty. Thingvellir National Park is one of the only places on Earth where you will be able to see and touch North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. You can even dive and snorkel right where the two continents meet. After lunch, we’ll admire the oldest documented European Geysir that shoots hot water at almost 130 feet into the air.
We’ll close out the day visiting the second most powerful waterfall in Europe and Iceland’s most famous waterfall, Gullfoss Falls. As you watch the rainbows appear from the waterfall’s spray, you will hear what sounds like thunder — as the waterfall plummets 105 feet to the ground. Last but not least, we’ll stop at the amazing volcanic crater at the lake of Kerið to marvel at the vivid aquamarine color of the water. It’s definitely Instagram worthy!

After a tasty breakfast, you’ll have a free day to explore Reykjavik’s small, funky downtown area. Late tonight, you will be awed in a trek to enjoy the magnificent sights of the Aurora Borealis.

You’ve waited a long time to see this.
Rise and shine! Because a trip to Iceland isn’t complete until you’ve soaked in the beautiful steamy, milky blue waters of the geothermal spa of the iconic Blue Lagoon. We’ll head to the luxurious Blue Lagoon for an evening of relaxation in the healing geothermal spa. This evening, you’ll enjoy an unique unforgettable multi-course farewell dinner on the shores of the world wonder.
