Enjoy a wonderful vacation in a country of natural wonders: glaciers, volcanos, waterfalls, and lakes. Highlights are visits to the geothermal heat and electric power station, the hot springs at Geysir, accompanied by the chef of the Geysir restaurant, who will offer you a taste of freshly baked hot-spring bread and more, all washed down with a glass of the local schnapps. Admire the largest glacier in Europe, stop at Lake Jökulsárlón, well known thanks to the James Bond movie Die Another Day, and see Dettifoss, the most powerful waterfall in Europe. Visit the Botanical Garden in Akureyri with specimens of almost all native Icelandic plants, followed by a unique experience: watch the seals in their natural habitat during a boat cruise. Back in Reykjavik, a special farewell dinner awaits you to celebrate the success of your Icelandic Adventure.
