Our first day begins with our group meeting followed by an optional group dinner. Following dinner we head to a popular lounge for a welcome reception with locals.
 

Today we head to Silfra where we swim and snorkel between the continents where the tectonic plates meet, with the opportunity to actually see the crack in the surface under water. Later in the day we continue our adventure with a cave hike through a lava tube that was created thousands of years ago by a river of red glowing lava.
 

This morning we hit the water for an exciting and beautiful river rafting experience; where you'll see a great mix of serene canyons and ride adrenaline pumping rapids. In the afternoon, our drive takes us along the South coast of Iceland to iconic Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls as well as the captivating rock formations of Reynisfjara and Reynisdrangar.
 

Are you ready to trek on a glacier? Great! After a lesson in ice walking we head onto the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier to experience one of the most popular activities in Iceland; Ice Trekking. After you've conquered the glacier, we head to Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon where we have a relaxing boat ride amidst freshly calved icebergs.
 

Your adventure becomes even more exciting when we head to the Blue Lagoon where we join other gay and lesbian travellers for a dip in the geothermal pool. Enjoy a drink and get to know some of the new guests before we head to our design hotel in Reykjavík which will serve as our base for the next few nights. This evening we attend the Reykjavík Pride opening ceremony where tourists and locals enjoy local and international entertainment.
 

Today we will join a larger gay and lesbian group to experience Gullfoss waterfall, the world-famous Geysir & Þingvellir national park where you can see the Great Atlantic Rift. Following this we head to the Fontana Steam Baths where you will have a chance to enjoy three geothermally heated baths, a sauna, a warm sand beach and access to the pristine waters of Lake Laugarvatn. If you have energy after today we have an optional dinner followed by options for the Pride Concert, Queer Cruise and the other official Pride events.
 

What better way to start the day than with a champagne brunch? Following brunch we watch the Reykjavík Gay Pride Parade and enjoy a short outdoor concert. Tonight is the official Pride dance which has become the main event for the festival. Day 8 is departure day with no activities included. You are free to depart at your leisure using your complimentary transfer.
