Day 1: Keflavik Airport - Reykjavik (No meals)
Arrival in Iceland. Non-guided transfer from Keflavik International Airport to accommodation in Reykjavik. We provide you with ideas how to explore Iceland's capital on your own, dinner suggestions too! O/N at Reykjavik.

Day 2: Reykjavik City Tour & Borgarfjörður Saga Valley (B)
At 09:00 meet your tour guide who shows the group the highlights of Iceland's exciting capital. Get a chance to climb the Grábrók volcano crater and get warmed at Deildartunguhver, Europe's most powerful hot spring which produces 180 liters per second of water that is nearly boiling - 97° Celsius. See the spectacular Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls. The afternoon includes a lecture about Northern Lights. After dinner, step into the hotel garden in search of the Northern Lights. O/N at Borgarnes. 

Day 3: Snæfellsnes Peninsula & Fjord Cruise (B, L-Light)
Visit the Snæfellsnes Peninsula - the peninsula of the snowy mountain. Travel to the charming fishing town of Stykkishólmur for a cruise in the Breiðafjörður fjord. After a light lunch a unique Icelandic treat awaits you at Bjarnarhöfn, where they make Hákarl - the fermented shark. Depending on road and weather conditions, visit the fishing village of Grundarfjörður, a place with an impressive coastline and mountains, lakes and waterfalls behind the village. On the way back to Borgarnes the guide gives you some practical tips of how to photograph the Auroras as part of the Northern Lights Academy program. Naturally, once darkness falls, you will be out in the hotel garden to chase the Northern Lights and to soak in the hotel’s outdoor hot tubs. O/N at Borgarnes.

Day 4: Golden Circle, Geothermal Taste & Icelandic Horses (B)
The first stop is at an Icelandic wool outlet store, just to see what they do with all those sheep! Continue inland to Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Travel the Golden Circle route and see steam rising from the Geysir geothermal fields as we arrive. There is a variety of hot springs and bubbling pools. The original geyser is now dormant but has been replaced by Strokkur which erupts at 5-10 minute intervals. The chef of the Restaurant Geysir invites you to taste freshly baked hot spring bread served with Icelandic butter, geothermally boiled eggs and herring. It is best served with a small glass of Geysir Schnapps, very cold – nearly freezing. On we travel to Gullfoss, a double waterfall that tumbles 34 meters into the Hvítá river and attracts tourists and travelers in summer and winter. In the afternoon, you learn about the Icelandic horse, its special qualities and history and visit a geothermal greenhouse. Tonight, step into the darkness and search for the elusive Northern Lights, while best enjoyed from a comfortable hot tub in the garden of the hotel, amidst the peace and stillness of rural Iceland. O/N at South Iceland.

Day 5: South Iceland & Eyjafjallajökull Volcano (B)
Today we travel along the South coast. At the Eyjafjallajökull Information Center we learn about living next to a glacier and an active volcano. Further east we visit one of Iceland's finest folk museums. This museum contains an outstanding collection of farm and domestic artifacts from Iceland's past and several turf-built houses. Nearby is Skógafoss waterfall which is 60 meters high and one of the most impressive waterfalls in the country. In the afternoon we take a stroll on the black lava beach and along bird cliffs at Reynisfjara in South Iceland. Overnight near Kirkjubæjarklaustur in the Vatnajökull National Park region, located in darkness and ideal for Northern Lights search. O/N at Vatnajökull Region.

Day 6: Skaftafell National Park & Vatnajökull Glacier (B)
Today travel to Jökulsárlón, a glacial lagoon filled with floating icebergs, and we explore the extraordinary site and might see seals swimming in arctic waters. You can walk on the black sandy beach where large icebergs get stranded. In the afternoon, visit the tiny turf church at Hof and spend time at Europe’s largest national park - Skaftafell National Park, which has Iceland’s highest mountains, an alpine environment, and Europe's largest glacier. In the evening, enjoy a film presentation about the Northern Lights as part of the Northern Lights Academy program. O/N at Vatnajökull Region.

Optional Tour: Ice Cave Tour (available for departures only till 15th March – subject to change)
Experience a spectacular crystal ice cave in Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull. The tour takes about 2.5 hours in total - about 30-minute drive by 4x4 vehicle from the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and 5-15 minutes hike (one-way). You spend about one hour inside the ice cave. The ice cave explorers will miss out on some of the official tour programs, as there is no time for everything, but the stop and visit at the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon are included for all group members.

Day 7: Reykjavik & Blue Lagoon (B,D)
Head across the Eldhraun lava field to the village of Vík, where we make a photo stop. The black lava beach with high bird cliffs and pounding waves is very impressive. Further west, reach the high but narrow Seljalandsfoss waterfall which plunges from the mountain. In the afternoon, return to Reykjavik and have about 2 hour leisure time to explore Iceland's capital on our own, visit museums, do some shopping or simply rest after all this touring. In the evening, soak in the famous Blue Lagoon. After an Icelandic dinner at a local restaurant, we go on one last nocturnal tour to seek more Northern Lights. O/N at Reykjavik.

The setting of Lausanne is extremely picturesque: it is hardly surprising that the International Olympic Committee has been based here since 1914. The town is built on three hills, surrounded by vineyard-covered slopes, with Lake Geneva at its feet. Rising impressively from the opposing French lakeshore are the Savoy Alps. The attractive old town is largely car-free. Small alleyways with cafes and boutiques shape the streetscape in the medieval city centre. Lausanne is home to the world-famous Béjart Ballet. @myswitzerlandin @myswitzerland @mylausanne To plan your Swiss holiday: Call - +91-22-66382700 | Email - info@amazingvacations.in #explore #wanderlust #photooftheday #travelgram #travelphotos #beautifuldestinations #exploretheworld #amazingvacations #amazingdiaries #amazingsnapshots #amazingluxury #lux #luxtravel #dream #discover #travel #instapic #instagram #traveller #vacations #lausanne #MyLausanne #switzerland
