Continuing on you explore the hot springs at Geysir, these natural springs bubbling away in the ground before exploding in spectacular style. Geysir and Strokkur are the two biggest of the geysers in the area and while Geysir no longer is active, Strokkur still spouts every 5 to 15 minutes to the delight of visitors. Next you travel to Gullfoss, “the golden falls“, which is a double waterfall that tumbles 34 meters into the Hvítá river and one of Iceland’s most beautiful. You continue to Kerio, a caldera with a crater lake on the bottom and which resembles an ancient amphitheatre This evening, you hear all about the Northern Lights from your tour guide.

You can walk on the black sandy beach where large icebergs get stranded. The Vatnajökull National Park is about 12,000 square kilometres and is the largest National Park in Europe. In this area, you find Iceland’s highest mountains, an alpine environment and Europe’s largest glacier. Tonight you enjoy a movie presentation about the Northern Lights as a part of the Northern Lights educational program.
