Then, follow your guide inside the geological site's immense subterranean interior to gaze at the remains of 4,000-year-old wall scars from a volcanic eruption.

Day 3: Venturing to Golden Circle

This full-day tour is a condensed sightseeing trip around Iceland's most awesome sights, such as Thingvellir National Park, Geysir, Gullfoss waterfall, and Kerid Crater Lake. Gaze out over the dramatic volcanic crater measuring an impressive 886 feet wide and 180 feet deep. Walk right on the meeting point of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates at the Thingvellir National Park. Also, watch the Strokkur geyser erupt every 10 minutes, sporting a column of water up to 98 feet in the air. This is the first Geysir geothermal area, after which all others are named.

Day 4: Discovering Whale Watching

This boat cruise tour lets you see white-beaked dolphins, minke whales, humpback whales, and harbor porpoises. Learn about some of Iceland's most majestic native wildlife from an onboard guide, and choose between a 3-5 hour whale watching cruise or a 2.5-hour high-speed boat version. Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience of spotting giant whales in the pristine blue waters.
