On arrival at the airport, your Iceland vacation begins as you are warmly greeted and chauffeured to your hotel for an early breakfast.

The coastline, harbor district and the traditional brightly-painted homes of the Old Quarter would be a terrific place to begin. Architectural enthusiasts will want to see the glass-domed Pearl, an innovative building that showcases Iceland’s sustainable approach to design, engineering and construction.

History buffs may also want to see the Hofdi House, the simple, turn-of-the-century clapboard house where Presidents Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev met in 1986, the historic event that effectively marked the end of the Cold War. We’ve also included entry to the National Museum so you can learn more about Iceland’s history and culture – from the early days of Viking settlement to contemporary life. Then check in to the stylish Canopy by Hilton City-Center. Our deluxe hotel offers spacious guestrooms and free WiFi in a wonderful downtown neighborhood.

Reaching the tranquil shores of Lake Thingvallavatn, you’ll visit the remains of the world’s oldest democratic Parliament  , founded more than 1,000 years ago! Then thrill to one of Iceland’s most famous geological wonders – the Strokkur Geyser that regularly erupts 100 feet into the air. At the Golden Waterfall, you’ll behold a thunderous cascade of icy water that plunges into a deep gorge.

Before returning to your hotel, you’ll also experience one of Iceland’s most famous natural wonders: The geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon originate more than 6,000 feet below ground and reach the Earth’s surface at temperatures that usually range from 98 º to 104º. On its way to the surface, these waters absorb silica and other minerals that five the Lagoon its distinctive and captivating blue color.  Meals B
