During the tour you stop by the official residence of the President of Iceland called Bessastadir. Your next stop is Hafnarfjörður - a port town and municipality located about 10 km from Reykjavik. This place is known as the home of the "Hidden people" Huldufolk from local folklore, meaning elves in Iclandic.

Then you proceed to the futuristic Perlan dome from which you see spectacular views over Reykjavik and its surroundings. You make a stop at Hofdi, the building where the all-important summit between the former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and the former U.S.S.R. Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev took place in 1986.

Then on to the Hallgrimskirkja Church that is the tallest building in Iceland where you have a chance to walk up the stairs to see the view of the city center (entrance tickets are not included).

Day 3: Golden Circle Tour

After breakfast together with your group you go on a fascinating day trip through entire Iceland. During the 8-hour adventure you have the unique chance to experience the best this outstanding country has to offer - the Golden Circle!

The first highlight of your day trip is visiting the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site - Thingvellir National Park. The national pride of the country, the Thingvellir National Park has a very important historical significance - it is the place where the oldest existing parliament in the world (first assembled in 930 AD) is set. The “Althing” was held here for almost 9 centuries, until 1800.

However, it is not only history that attracts thousands of visitors to this unique land. Being part of a fissure zone running through Iceland, the Thingvellir area is a great lava arena in a rift valley formed between the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates and serves a visual representation of continental drift. The area also features the largest natural lake in Iceland - Thingvallavatn, surrounded by lava flows and lush vegetation.

You then discover the picturesque Gullfoss - one of the most beautiful and popular waterfalls in Iceland. Your next stop is the Geysir area scattered with hot springs, mud pools and geysers, including the famous geyser Strokkur - the world´s most active.

On our way back to Reykjavik you pass Hveragerdi - a small town known for its geothermally heated greenhouses. After the tour you return to your Reykjavik hotel for overnight.

Breakfast is included.

Day 4: South Coast Tour

Following breakfast you and your tour group go on another breathtaking day trip. In the morning your driver picks you up from the hotel and your memorable 10-hour journey to the South Coast of Iceland begins.

The very impressive waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss are your first stop. Seljalandsfoss cascades down the mountainside of West Eyjafjöll and is narrow and very high. There is even a path at the bottom of the cliff providing a safe and easy opportunity to walk behind the waterfall. You then see Skógafoss - an impressive 60 m high waterfall located in Skógar, where you can visit the museum (entrance tickets are not included).

You then proceed to Vik the charming southernmost village in Iceland famous for breathtaking mountainous vistas, rich vegetation and bird life. Make sure to take a picture of the three rockstacks called Skessudrangar, Landdrangar and Langhamrar.

Norwegian Heritage Tour (summer 2016)

Adventure of a lifetime to Finnish Lapland all to the thanks of Firebird Tours

My Firebird Tour agent worked with me for several months to arrange the "perfect" tour for me & my husband to Finland (Finnish Lapland Trip, December 2016). Everything I wanted plus more.

My sister and I had a wonderful time: Scandinavian Fjords & Capitals

My sister and I had a wonderful time. Of course, the cities we visited were beautiful and full of interesting sights to visit, so it was easy to have a good time.

We enjoyed our 2016 trip to Scandinavia
