Natural Wonders of Gullfoss, Geysir & Thingvellir - Traditional Icelandic Christmas buffet

After breakfast at your hotel, your guide will meet you at 09:30. Today you will experience a trio of natural wonders along the Golden Circle route in South Iceland. Highlights include the breathtaking Gullfoss waterfall, which is often frozen mid-cascade during winter; the active Geysir geothermal area of bubbling mud pools, hot springs and spouting geysers; and Thingvellir National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site) Iceland's greatest historical site. Thingvellir is also of tremendous geological interest, as it is the visible location of the mid-Atlantic Ridge where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet.

Tonight enjoy a traditional Christmas Buffet at Satt Restaurant, located at Icelandair Hotel Natura. The true yuletide spirit is served with a deluxe gourmet Christmas buffet of distinctive dishes based on local and Nordic ingredients.
