6 Ensure all electronic devices are charged for the flight! Important Current ABTA Advice re: Enhanced airport security measures from 9th July 2014 Due to new security requirements introduced on 2/7/14, ABTA recommends that customers ensure all electronic devices taken on board a flight in hand luggage, are fully charged before departing from home and on their return journey. The Department for Transport has advised that these additional security measures will affect some routes into and out of the UK, they have not specified which routes, so customers on all international flights should be prepared. If you are unable to demonstrate that your phone or other electronic device can be switched on, you risk having to leave the device at the airport, which may also result in you missing your flight. Many airports now have charging facilities at the airport but demand for these will be intense particularly at this time of the year. Customers are also advised to switch on their electronic devices before they reach the security check areas to cut down on potential delays."

14 Geysir Geysir, sometimes known as The Great Geysir, is a geyser in southwestern Iceland. It was the first geyser described in a printed source and the first known to modern Europeans. The English word geyser derives from Geysir.

Meal Packed lunch You will be provided with a packed lunch.

17 Itinerary - Day 3 Visit Reynisfjara Beach Walk along this ethereal black sand beach and admire the striking basalt formations. Legend has it that the stacks are trolls who tried to drag a ship to land, but were turned to stone as day broke. Visit Sólheimajökull Glacier At Sólheimajökull, students can clearly see the dynamics that shape the movement, volume and shape of glaciers. Unfortunately, the most striking feature of Sólheimajökull is how fast it is receding! Visit Vík Vík is a clear example of Living with Natural Hazards: the village lies directly beneath the Mýrdalsjökull glacier and Katla volcano, so all of its 300 inhabitants are well-trained in evacuation! 20:00 Approx Arrive Hotel Meal Dinner at accommodation

18 Skógafoss Waterfall A waterfall situated on the Skógá River in the south of Iceland at the cliffs of the former coastline. After the coastline had receded seaward (it is now at a distance of about 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) from Skógar), the former sea cliffs remained, parallel to the coast over hundreds of kilometres, creating together with some mountains a clear border between the coastal lowlands and the Highlands of Iceland.

19 Seljalandsfoss waterfall Seljalandsfoss is one of the best known waterfalls in Iceland. Seljalandsfoss is located in the South Region in Iceland right by Route 1 and the road that leads to Þórsmörk Road 249

20 Reynisfjara Beach Reynisdrangar are basalt sea stacks situated under the mountain Reynisfjall near the village Vík í Mýrdal, southern Iceland which is framed by a black sand beach that was ranked in 1991 as one of the ten most beautiful non-tropical beaches in the world. Legend says that the stacks originated when two trolls dragged a three-masted ship to land unsuccessfully and when daylight broke they became needles of rock. Contemporary legends note the story of a husband who found his wife taken by the two trolls, frozen at night. The husband made the two trolls swear to never kill anyone ever again. His wife was the love of his life, whose free spirit he was unable to provide a home for; she found her fate out among the trolls, rocks, and sea at Reynisfjara.

21 Sólheimajökull glacier The Sólheimajökull glacier tongue extends from the great Mýrdalsjökull glacier, down to the sandy plains of the Icelandic south coast. The spectacular surroundings are marked by rugged and majestic rock formations thoroughly shaped by the glacier. On this fun, safe, and easy to moderate glacier walk, you get to explore the wonderland of ice sculptures, water cauldrons, ridges, and deep crevasses on the breathtaking Sólheimajökull glacier. While enjoying all the features of the glacier and its spectacular surroundings, you will learn more about the behavior of glaciers and their impact on nature. No technical requirements are needed for the tour as an experienced glacier guide will teach you how to use basic glacier equipment, such as crampons and an ice axe which are provided for all our glacier walk tours. The unique experience of a glacier walk on one of the many retreating glaciers of the world is sure to leave lasting memories.

22 Vik The village of Vík is the southernmost village in Iceland, located on the main ring road around the island, around 180 km by road southeast of Reykjavík.
