Day 1 - Thursday, March 14, 2024
Your lesbian group host will meet you at the hotel late afternoon/early evening. Your Tour Manager will meet you at Keflavik airport and take you to your coach ready to transfer you to your hotel in Reykjavík. After you've settled in and unpacked there may be time to explore the local area. If your flight arrives later in the afternoon then please join for our welcome group dinner in a local restaurant (payable locally) A great way to meet your fellow travellers.
Day 2 - Friday, March 15, 2024
After a group breakfast we go off on our included, guided city tour which introduces us to Reykjavík and its surroundings this morning. See landmarks such as the Presidential Residence and the towering Hallgrim's Church. In the afternoon you'll have the opportunity to take a dip in the mineral-laden waters of the Blue Lagoon. These warm waters have become one of Iceland's most recognizable attractions, but began life as a by-product of the nearby geothermal power plant where superheated water rising from the ground near a lava flow is used to drive turbines that generate electricity for the region, and heat the local water supply. Join us for our evening meal in a local restaurant (payable locally)
Day 3 - Saturday, March 16, 2024
After our group breakfast we go on this morning's Golden Circle tour to see Ţingvellir - the green expanse where Iceland's ancient parliament used to meet and of course the (near-extinct) original Geysir and time the gap between the eruptions from the nearby, and far more frequent, Strokkur waterspout, before rounding off our day with a visit to the vast cascade of the Gullfoss waterfall.
The highlight of the tour comes this evening, when you'll head out of the city to search for the Aurora Borealis - the enchanting Northern Lights - flickering in the Icelandic night sky. Should you be lucky enough to see it, the phenomenon is a sight to behold. Join us for our evening meal in a local restaurant (payable locally)

After our group breakfast we adventure off on our Southern Shore excursion. Our journey takes us into wild, rugged Iceland and across the lava plateau, down onto the southern coastal lowlands and across the mighty river Ölfusá.
