Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Enjoy an easy half-day tour of two of Iceland's most popular sights: Godafoss Falls and the Botanical Gardens, home to over 2,000 species of plants and flowers. Your first venue is Godafoss Waterfall where in the year 1000, Thorgeir Thorkelsson and the Icelandic parliament decreed the island would become a Christian nation, and then hurled pagan idols into the cataract. Next, you'll visit the Botanical Garden, which was established in 1912. These lush gardens are home to an impressive collection of flora, with more than 2,000 species. The specimens range from Icelandic natives to plants and trees gathered from all around the world. Stroll the gardens and don't forget to bring your camera for endless photo opportunities. Before heading back to the ship, enjoy a tour of Akureyri and a panoramic viewpoint of the town and its harbor.
