Start the day by visiting the recently opened and fascinating Northern Lights Center in Reykjavik for an exciting and informative presentation on the Northern Lights.
Onwards to Thingvellir National Park (UNESCO) where the world’s oldest parliament met for centuries on the shores of Iceland's largest lake. We then drive to Laugarvatn Fontana where we experience a geothermal bakery first hand and dig up bread that has been cooked underground. After the tour, we sample  the delicious bread, served hot from the ground with some butter. 
Continue through farmland areas to the geothermal fields of Geysir with bubbling mud pools and high spouting Strokkur hot spring. Last but not least visit the dramatic two-tiered Gullfoss waterfall, a spectacular sight in winter when frozen mid-cascade.

We spend the day exploring the region surrounding the towering strato-volcano Eyjafjallajokull, which is probably the most famous volcano in the world today. At the Volcano Visitor Center at Thorvaldseyri Farm, we experience in photographs and film the incredible and personal impact the eruption had on this area.
Visit an innovative Icelandic farm where the main line of produce is milk and beef but the farm is best known for its grain farming. Driving along the South Shore we stop at the spectacular waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss.
