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 Iceland tour, you will start and end in Reykjavík, and you'll witness these natural wonders while enjoying fun and unique experiences.

Trip Description

Scenic highlights include mighty Gullfoss waterfall and Goðafoss, known as the "Waterfall of the Gods." Take pictures at Dettifoss, the most powerful waterfall in Europe (road conditions permitting). Drive by Eyjafjallajökull volcano, well known for the eruption that generated the massive ash cloud in 2010, and through the national park at Skaftafell to Vik. Enjoy a scenic drive to the lovely blue Lake Mývatn. In one of Iceland's prettiest areas and with volcanic craters throughout the lake, it is teeming with bird life and is known for its geothermal activity. Also watch how Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull, flows into Lake Jökulsárlón, forming icebergs.

Globus has also included some out-of-the-ordinary experiences to make your Iceland vacation special. In Thingvellir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, walk through the rift valley that marks the separation between the North American and European tectonic plates. In Geysir, walk 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. You'll wash it down with a glass of geysir schnapps. Another unique and unforgettable experience Globus offers is a boat cruise to see whales in their natural habitat!

These are just some of the many highlights of this Iceland tour. Be sure to bring your camera so you can to capture the stunning scenery and fun experiences on this wonderful vacation.

The tour bus was very comfortable, the driver was excellent and the Globus guide was very personable and knowledgeable. The accommodations were very good in the larger cities (Glasgow and Edinburgh) and good in the smaller ones. The tours of Stirling Castle, Scone Castle Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Yacht Britannia and the whiskey distillery were very informative. The sheepdog demonstration was great fun to watch. We enjoyed the tour.

I took the Continental Introduction tour with Globus Journeys. This was a guided tour that visited 6 countries in 2 weeks. The tour started in Paris with 2 nights there. While in Paris we had a cruise down the Seine River and a wonderful group dinner on the banks of the Seine. We visited the Eiffel Tower where we could go to the top if we wished. The next destination was Lucerne, Switzerland with one night there. While in Lucerne we went to the top of Mt. Pilatus by way of gondola going up and the world's steepest cogwheel train coming down. There were some in our group who had never seen snow, so it was nice that there was plenty of snow. After Lucerne, we went to Lugano, Switzerland. This was a very lovely lake town and we took a boat cruise on the lake and had a nice dinner at a wonderful restaurant. The boat then took us back to Lugano for the night. The next day we traveled to Florence, Italy for 1 night with a stop in Pisa. We toured the Academy and saw Michael Angelo's David statue. After Florence we traveled to Rome for 2 nights. We toured Rome, the Vatican, the Form, the Coliseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, etc. We had the most wonderful dinner in Rome! After Rome we were in Venice for 2 nights. While in Venice we visited the Murano Glass Factory. We saw a glass blower demonstration. We also toured the Doges Palace and had gondola rides. After Venice we headed to Munich, Germany with a stop in Innsbruck, Austria. Beautiful travel through the Tyrolean Alps. We were in Munich for 1 night then headed to Bingen am Rhine. Beautiful area and our hotel was right on the banks of the Rhine River. We took a cruise down the Rhine for several hours and saw many beautiful villages and castles. After Bingen we headed to Amsterdam for the last 2 nights of our journey. While in Amsterdam we did a canal cruise, traveled to Vollendam with a stop at a working windmill, a cheese factory, and a clog makers shop. We had a very special dinner in Vollendam the last night of our trip. Our tour director was wonderful. She saw that everyone was where they needed to be and made sure that everything ran very smoothly. In each city we had local guides who helped us experience each city in a very unique way. Our bus driver was wonderful as well. He was very helpful and fun and was excellent in navigating the streets and highways to see that we arrived at each destination safely and on time. This trip was very fast paced and is to give you an overview of a large area. Since this was my first trip to Europe this was a perfect way to experience many countries in two weeks. All of our hotels were highly rated and were perfect.I highly recommend Globus. Every aspect of our trip was top notch all the way. I will definitely do another Globus tour in the future!

The Globus tour guide was well informed about little bits of British history and had great stories to tell while we traveled from London to Land's End to Wales, Glasgow, The Isle of Skye, Inverness, Edinburgh, York and back to London. Each day had at least three stops to see villages and historic sites. And the bathroom stops were well planned! The hotels were comfortable and well placed within the cities. To be honest, I wish I had more time to explore all the sights!

Really had a great time overall...Hotels were in beautiful locations and very comfortable. The meals provided were very good with the exception of the farewell dinner which was served cold and just not up to par. The excursions were great and very well planned by our tour guide, Randy. I do have to say that the optional tour to the Polynesian Center was not timed well and we were not able to see much since we opted not to pay extra for a guide. The luau, however was outstanding as was the show.
We have already booked another Globus tour so it is obvious that we are satisfied with the Group.

Reykjavik: Excursion to The Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland's most popular attractions, a natural geothermal pool in the middle of a large and dramatic lava field and an oasis that owes its existence to a nearby geothermal power plant, looming large over the aqua tinted waters. We stop for a refreshing bathe or a swim in the inviting, rejuvenating and pleasantly warm mineral-rich water (37°C-39°C/98-102°F), reputed for its healing properties. An indoor pool and geothermal sauna are also on the site. Bathing in this surreal environment is a unique experience no one should miss. The Blue Lagoon's warm water and natural active ingredients like mineral salts, silica and blue green algae help you relax and escape the stress and strain of daily life.
