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 Globus tour of Iceland, you’ll witness these natural wonders while enjoying fun and unique experiences. In Thingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, walk through the rift valley that marks the separation between the North American and European tectonic plates. Stroll 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, with Icelandic butter, boiled eggs and herring. Pair it with a glass of geysir schnapps, served at freezing point. Take a boat cruise to see whales in their natural habitat. Marvel at the Gullfoss Waterfall, drive through the national park at Skaftafell and stop at Lake Jökulsárlón, where you can watch how Vatnajӧkull, the largest glacier in Europe, flows into the lake. This is where some of the most spectacular scenes of the James Bond’s movie Die Another Day were filmed. Enjoy a special Farewell Dinner with wine at one of Reykjavik’s fine restaurants to celebrate the end of your Icelandic adventure.
