This evening you'll check into Hotel Alda, a cool and contemporary hotel at the heart of Reykjavik, and the ideal base for the start of your Icelandic exploration.

Step between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates at Thingvellir National Park, wonder at the hot springs at Geysir and admire the thundering Gullfoss waterfall. Continue on to Langjökull glacier for an exhilarating snowmobile adventure through the wilderness, taking in the awe-inspiring views of the glacier and the surrounding scenery.
After spending your first night at Hotel Ranga, explore Iceland's south coast, a magical area of black sand beaches, powerful waterfalls and intriguing rock formations.

Finally, it's time to head home, but not before squeezing in one last adventure. Make your way down into the depths of Raufarhólshellir to explore this ancient lava tunnel.
