“It was good although disappointing we had very little knowledge of the itinerary before we started. Also it was not strictly as advertised - no homestay accommodation the Amazon part of the trip wasn't really near the Amazon river just a tributary.”

“Great tour with great people. Well organized and run. Our guide Scott had everything nicely under control. It would have been even better if we had a little more time to explore Machu Picchu. The mix of city and rural places to visit was just right. ”
On arrival at Keflavik Airport, a shuttle transfer will take you to your accommodation in Reykjavík. Tonight you have free time to explore the capital for yourself. The city is alive in colour, culture and creativity and you can easily explore it on foot. There are a huge amount of restaurants to choose from, serving traditional Icelandic cuisine, as well as lively bars and cafes.

The adventure begins when you meet your group and tour leader at 9am. You will be taken on a quick city tour where you can learn about the main sights of Iceland's capital. Leaving Reykjavík we drive west, stopping first at the Saga Valley. Here you get a first taste of Iceland's beautiful landscapes. We have the chance to climb Grábrok Volcano crater and visit Europe's most powerful hot springs, Deildartunguhver. We visit Hraunfossar which is home to a series of magnificent waterfalls pouring from a vast lava field.

Tonight we stay in the small town of Borgarnes. Learn about the Northern Lights on an included lecture before dinner. Once the meal is over you will get your first chance at witnessing this spectacular phenomenon for yourself before settling down for the evening with a warm cup of hot chocolate. Remember, the Aurora Borealis can be a bit of a tease, and patience will be your best virtue when chasing the lights. If you don't see the magical light display tonight then don't worry, there will be plenty of chances to spot them throughout this adventure!
