What's included in this trip
Iceland Family - Glaciers and Geysers SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Reykjavik, the world's northernmost capital, has an enviable music scene, intoxicating geothermal pools, great restaurants and excellent museums and galleries.
Today we can head out into the rugged wild south of Iceland. The Reykjanes peninsula is home to many active volcanoes and large lava fields, which ensures that little grows there. We can walk among the lava fields and soak in the dramatic landscape as the sea beats down on this barren shore in the morning, before heading to the world renowned blue lagoon.
One of the most exciting parts of a visit to Iceland is surely a trip out on the frozen icy glaciers. And what better way to do this than by four wheel drive jeep? The super jeeps that are used in Iceland are specially designed so that they can get over the ice and around the frozen terrain with ease.
Take to the water today in Reykjavik bay as we voyage in search of whales, the largest mammals on Earth. In the harbour off the coast of the capital we can encounter minke or humpback whales. These majestic creatures are gentle giants, and their inquisitive nature can bring them close to the boats so we may well get to see them at close quarters.
Today is a free day to relax and discover Reykjavik. There are a wide variety of optional activities available today if we are looking for some more activity or to explore further.
In April 2010, the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull caused planes to be grounded all over Europe. Today, we head down to the south shore of Iceland, where this now world famous volcano is among the many sights.
Today has been left free for us to enjoy the best that Iceland has to offer. There are a great many activities available to us in and around Reykjavik.
Today the tour ends with a transfer from the hotel to the airport.
