Amazing scenery

Join us this summer to explore the spectacular landscape of this unique country. Our coach meets us at the airport to take us across lunar-like lava fields to the Blue Lagoon, with the option of a dip in the thermal pools.

 

Iceland’s famous geyser

A local coach that is equipped for the terrain will take us on five excursions, as detailed below, to experience the breathtaking scenery of Iceland.

Iceland's famous geyser, Strokkur, emits fountains of hot water up to 20 metres in height. Gullfoss, arguably the finest of Iceland’s many waterfalls is nicknamed “the golden falls” because of the rainbows that appear when the sun shines. The falls provide a spectacular sight amidst the barren Thjorsa Valley.


 

Dramatic Landmannalaugar

The unique Landmannalaugar area is one of the most striking locations in Iceland. We have the opportunity to relax in a natural hot pool before taking a walk into the green, orange and pink-coloured valleys that surround the contrasting frozen black lava fields. En-route we view the mighty Hekla Volcano.


 

A warm Icelandic welcome

We stay in one of the most interesting parts of Iceland, on the south-west side. Accommodated in a centre that is hosted by a Christian team, we always receive a warm welcome. Breakfast, packed lunch and a hot evening meal are all included.

 

The vibrant city of Reykjavik

We will spend a day exploring the capital city of Reykjavik, built on the shores of the Faxa Bay. There are stunning views over the city and beyond to Mount Esja. We can browse the interesting local shops and take a walk along the quayside. There is also the option of whale watching to see these amazing animals in their natural habitat.

 

Waterfalls and lava fields

Glaciers, waterfalls and lava fields are all features of the varied landscape of South Iceland. We travel to Skogar to gaze upon a picturesque and unforgettable waterfall as it cascades over 60m of sheer cliffs. Just outside Vik there is an impressive arch that has been cut into the rock by the sea and is now large enough for boats to pass through. It is also sometimes possible to see puffins here.

 
"Excellent value, the warmest of welcomes, great company. Loved it!"

The fabulous Westmann Islands

We head out by boat to the beautiful Westmann Islands, with their steep cliffs that are home to a large bird population. Here you gain a real sense of rural Icelandic life and the amazing history of this country. There is the option of a separate tour of the islands once we arrive.
 

Horse riding, jeep safari and more...

In addition to the excursions and other options mentioned above, there are further exciting possibilities, including horse riding and a jeep safari around the Myrdalsjokull glacier. At the end of each day we meet together to hear a helpful Bible talk.
