Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Iceland, commonly known as the Land of Fire and Ice. This morning you’ll meet your local host and group in the hotel lobby for a welcome meeting at 10 am, before heading off to explore the island. Your first stop will be a colourful geothermal area known as Seltun. The hot springs and vibrant mud pools are located close to the road, so you’ll be treated to exceptional photo opportunities. As you continue on your journey you’ll stop at the remote Strandar Church, built on the Angel’s Cove. Legend has it that a group of fishermen lost at sea made a pledge to build a church wherever they found land, and then suddenly saw a bright light on the coast, which guided them to safety. From here, you’ll continue to your accommodation for the night, a sustainable working farm that doubles as a hotel. Enjoy a farm to table dinner and get to know your group a little better.
