Day 2: Golden Circle (8 hours)

This popular day trip from Reykjavik should not be missed on your Icelandic vacation. The Golden Circle Tour will take you to:

Thingvellir National Park, a remarkable historical and geological site, which is located by Lake Thingvallavatn, the largest lake in Iceland. The beautiful canyon running through the park is actually the meeting point of two of the earth’s tectonic plates. Furthermore, in this area the oldest form of parliament had met since 930.

Gullfoss waterfall (the Golden Waterfall) where you will see thousands of tons of icy water thunder majestically down in double falls into a deep canyon.

Geysir geothermal area where bubbling hot springs and geysers are abundant. Here you’ll find also Strokkur, the most active geyser in the area, spouting up to 25-30 meters. Overnight in Reykjavik.

 

Day 3: Kulusuk, Greenland (8 hours)

Board a short flight (approx. 2 hours) from Reykjavik to Kulusuk to visit the beautiful Greenland’s East Coast, home of the Ammassalik Inuit.

In Kulusuk, you will find some of the east coast’s most skillful craftsmen, whose tupilaks are of exceptional quality. Traditional hunting and fishing are still essential sources of income for many families in the settlement. Upon arrival, the guide will escort us to the engaging village, a mere 40-60 minutes walk, where we can stroll about and meet some of the 360 local residents and view their quality crafts.

Weather permitting: you’ll be treated to kayaking demonstrations and an ancient drum dance reflective of the indigenous culture. Overnight in Reykjavik.
