Gems of Iceland with Northern Lights
Iceland is a country known for its natural wonders: glaciers, active volcanoes, black-sand beaches, geothermal areas, roaring rivers, majestic waterfalls, and beautiful lakes. On this escorted tour of Iceland, you will start and end in Reykjavik, and you’ll witness these natural wonders while enjoying fun and unique experiences. Take an evening excursion by motorcoach to enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime experience of witnessing the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) in Iceland’s night sky.
Globus has also included some out-of-the-ordinary experiences to make your Iceland vacation special. In Thingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, walk through the rift valley that marks the separation between two of the world’s major tectonic plates. In Geysir, experience the geothermal areas and taste freshly baked bread cooked using the heat from the hot springs. You’ll pair it with a glass of Geysir schnapps. Marvel at the Gullfoss waterfall; drive through the national park at Skaftafell; and stop at Lake Jökulsárlón, where some of the most spectacular scenes of the James Bond movie, Die Another Day, were filmed. Join us to experience the exquisite natural beauty that will stay with you for years to come—a guided vacation in Iceland you’ll treasure forever.
