Day 3: December 31, Golden Circle and Festive Dinner at Perlan Panoramic Restaurant

By a scenic route, we reach Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site. We stroll around the country’s most sacred site, home of the oldest existing national parliament in the world, the Alþingi, and major events in the history of Iceland. Thingvellir is a place of fascinating natural beauty, a spectacular geological vista, set on a vast plain flanked by large fissures, right by Iceland’s largest lake, Thingvallavatn. The Mid-Atlantic rift is clearly visible; a rift that is forming as Iceland is being pulled apart by tectonic forces. Next, we drive to the mighty waterfall of Gullfoss – the Golden falls – perhaps the most beautiful in the country. Explore the active geothermal area of Haukadalur which contains the geyser Strokkur erupting hot water and steam to an elevation of 25 meters (82 ft) every 5-7 minutes. We pass the greenhouse town of Hveragerði and continue over the mountain pass Hellisheiði, an area with large lava fields and steaming valleys. Passing the geothermal power station Hellisheiðarvirkjun we learn how Icelanders use geothermal energy to produce electricity and hot water for house heating. The tour ends in Reykjavik around 16:00.

At 18:00 you will be transferred from your hotel to Perlan where you will be greeted with a welcome drink and the option to see Áróra, the Northern Lights Planetarium show. Around 19:30, the festive 4-course dinner will start with wine pairing. Later during the evening, there will be a music performance and a DJ who will keep up the party throughout the evening. Guests have exclusive access to the observation deck that has 360° view over Reykjavík’s capital area. A transfer from Perlan will leave every 30 minutes from 00:30 am.
