Komið þið sæl! That’s ‘hello’ in Icelandic! If learning a new language is on your bucket list, you’ve just gotten one step closer to completing it! Now, don’t let this beautiful country’s name confuse you. It’s actually very warm there! NACTA Travel and CIE Tours offers 2 tours to Iceland: Taste of Iceland, and the Northern Lights Quest of Iceland. With these tours comes many spectacular sights that may be on your bucket list or a once in a lifetime view, such as the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis. I want to share with you some of the things you’ll experience on one of these trips so I’ve compiled a list of 5 things you’ll get to do when you book a NACTA Travel / CIE Tour to Iceland.
First item on the list, explore Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik. Reykjavik has charming architecture, colorful rooftops, iconic sights such as their soaring modern cathedral, their beautiful convention center, and their famous Sun Voyager sculpture. Iceland’s capital is the largest city in Iceland.
The second experience on the list is you’ll get to take a dip in the Blue Lagoon. If you’ve always dreamed of swimming in a hot spring in the winter, or it’s something you love doing, these Iceland tours are calling your name! These soothing hot waters are an everyday thing for Icelanders.
Many people do not like tap water but in Iceland this is not an issue. In fact, Icelanders pride themselves on the purity of their tap water that comes from the same glacial sources that are all over the island! You must give it a try!
If you enjoy seeing waterfalls up close and personal, wait till you’re on a tour with us and visit Gullfoss Waterfall. I believe usually when people see waterfalls, they are standing in front of it or below it, but with this waterfall in Iceland, you stand on top of it and watch as it descends into the great crevasse below. An absolute sight to see!
I’ve saved one of the best for last. It can’t be the best because the value of every experience on these tours is unmeasurable! What is one thing that is on many people’s bucket list and can be done in Iceland?… experience the Northern Lights! I’ve researched what is normally on a person’s bucket list and to no surprise, this experience was on many of them! On one of our tours, you’ll take a boat quest and go on a hunt for the Northern Lights. According to Icelanders, the best time to see the Lights are September to mid-April and we offer tours within those months!
I know, I said I had a list of 5 things you’ll get to do but here’s a little extra and it’s for all of our bookworms! While you’re touring, you’ll get the chance to pop into a book shop. Iceland is a nation of readers. Bookworms, you might want to think of moving to Iceland after your tour. Why? Because a whopping 10% of Icelanders will publish a book in their lifetime! You could be a part of that 10%!!!
