music, but participants will begin their tour with an Iceland
Symphony concert in Reykjavik.
Travelers also will have time to visit the Asmundur Sveins-son
Museum of Sculpture and explore the capital city on their own

Here they will see how geo-thermal power is used in raising
exotic fruits, vegetables and flowers.
The group then heads to Gullfoss, billed as the most beautiful
waterfall in the country, and the Geyser area, known for its hot
springs and mud pools.
Other highlights include short flights to Heimaey, the largest
and the only inhabited island of the Westman Islands, and to the
fishing town of Husavik, where the group spends a few hours out in
a boat in search of whales.
The last day of the trip is spent exploring the Blue Lagoon, a
manmade oasis in a vast lava field; Grindavik, a fishing village
along the south coast, and then lava fields, bird cliffs and the
Reykjanesviti Lighthouse at the tip of the peninsula.
