Your overseas adventure has begun as you travel to Reykjavik. As your plane descends, keep an eye out for Iceland’s diverse terrain of lava fields, glaciers, and hot springs, which will be your new home for the next week! A local guide will wait to meet you at the airport and transfer you to your luxury resort.

Learn about its history as being home to Iceland’s first parliamentary assembly. As you make your way back to your hotel, take in panoramic views.

It’s the day you’ve been waiting for – the “Game of Thrones” Tour! As you travel to Thingvellir National Park, a guide will educate you on Iceland’s role in filming the “Game of Thrones” series. As you arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will tour the set of many scenes in this series featuring White Walkers. Make sure to take lots of photos to compare to the on-screen pictures.
