Iceland Winter Delights is a visit to the land of fire and ice and so much more! We'll spend five days exploring the southern portion of this beautiful island, experiencing its spectacular sights and activities. Our days will be packed; we'll tour Reykjavik, walk on a glacier, ride an Icelandic pony, feast on Icelandic specialties, keep on the lookout for elves, and experience the evidence of Iceland's geothermal activity in all its many forms, from geysers and volcanoes to thermal baths at the Blue Lagoon. We'll definitely be watching each night for those Northern Lights and hope that happens; but even if the lights refuse to show, we'll come away with a deep appreciation of this most magical of countries.

Any healthy active woman. None of our activities are strenuous but our days are very full.
This trip is more accurately described as active sightseeing rather than activity-based. We will be jumping on and off the bus to walk on a glacier, through thermal areas, behind waterfalls, to black sand beaches etc. There are a couple of short hikes but Iceland in March is not really suitable for extensive hiking.
We'll spend 2 nights at the Center Hotel Plaza or similar, located near the city center and 2 nights at Hotel Fljotshlid (Smaratun), a family-run guest ranch. In each the rooms are double occupancy with ensuite bathrooms.
Below is the proposed itinerary for the trip. As is true on any adventure travel trip, plans for any specific day may be modified due to weather considerations, unforeseen circumstances, new opportunities, and group interests.
The glacier hike The great interactions of the group
Glajcier walk, Iceland horse ride, the meals!
Highlights were: The Food; The Icelandic Horse ride; The Glacier walk. Not a "5" as I did not expect a $45.00 unexpected charge at The Pearl for touring the place with my trip-mates.
The walk on the glacier was definitely the highlight.
The whole trip was wonderful. Loved the glacier walk, Iceland horses and Blue Lagoon and the food was fabulous. One of the best parts are the people you meet on the trip and the wonderful guides. Sola was a perfect Iceland guide.
the group, the leaders, the folk museumi went to in stead of the ice walk, the accomodations, the food --all of it
I especially loved walking on a glacier and riding the Icelandic horses, even though it was wet and cold!
