After check-in the rest of the day is free for you to start discover beautiful Reykjavik.
The following day your morning is free to explore Reykjavik, enjoy the capitals museums and art galleries or just soak up the lovely city atmosphere. Then we start the afternoon by visiting Iceland's most famous attraction, the Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland's most famous tourist attractions and considered by many to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, as well as an unmissable part of one´s visit to Iceland.
The Blue Lagoon offers lava and moss filled scenery, state of the art facilities, a unique atmosphere and silica masks that make your skin extra firm, yet incredibly soft! Included in this combo is the Blue Lagoon Comfort Package where you receive entrance to the Blue Lagoon, silica mud mask, use of a towel, and a drink of your choice.
After couple of hours and an amazing warm soak in the geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon, you head back to Reykjavik on one of our new and comfortable coaches, offering you free Wi-Fi. Upon arrival back in Reykjavik, you have some free time to relax, have dinner and wait for your next adventure in the evening, a hunt for the extraordinary northern lights. Make sure to wear warm clothes!
The Northern Lights Tour in Iceland takes you to see a spectacular natural phenomenon that happens during the winter months. The northern lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole.
The locations visited during the northern lights tour vary from day to day depending on weather conditions. Our northern lights team studies thoroughly the weather and aurora forecasts in order to find the best location each night to spot the lights.
The following morning, after breakfast our tour guides will pick you up from your hotel or designated bus stop and we will head out of Reykjavik and make our way eastwards along the south coast. Our first stop will be the Seljalandsfoss waterfall where can actually walk behind the falls but remember your rain coat as you may get a little damp.
We then head on to another of Iceland’s famous waterfalls, Skógafoss that is located at the foot of the infamous volcano, Eyjafjallajökull. If it’s a clear day, you will also get a great view of another volcano mountain glacier, Mýrdalsjokull. We then continue on to Reynisfjara, a black sandy volcanic beach where you will see the picturesque basalt column formations and the famous Reynisdrangar peaks.
We will drive through the charming picture postcard town of Vík on our way to our hotel for the night. Throughout the day, you will get to see some breathtakingly beautiful landscapes of vast lava fields, volcanos, black sandy beaches and glacier tongues. We will enjoy a relaxing evening and if the conditions are right, hunt for the northern lights! The countryside close to the Vatnajökull glacier is well away from the city lights, perfect for spotting this natural phenomenon.
You will spend the night in the Adventure Hotel Hof which is located close to the Vatnajökull National Park in Öræfi, one of the most beautiful and extraordinary regions in Iceland, often referred to as “Sveitin milli sanda“ which loosely translates as “The Land Between the Sands“.
The Reception house has a cosy lounge and spacious restaurant. These spaces are communal and have free Wi-Fi internet access. Parts of the hotel are in buildings that were originally used as stables and barns for sheep but have been transformed into a comfortable country hotel with modern touches that provides personal service to its visitors.
In the bistro, you can enjoy breakfast and evening meals made from pure and fresh locally sourced ingredients. They offer both fish and meat courses and a vegetarian/vegan option for guests. There is also a choice of wine, beer, spirits, soft drinks and hot drinks on offer.
The rooms include made-up beds, towels and complimentary tea/coffee plus an en-suite bathroom and breakfast is served from 8:00-9.30am.
The following morning after breakfast, we head out to the renowned Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon, made famous by several blockbuster movies including Batman Begins and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, to name just a couple. You will see beautiful Icebergs, some incredibly large which have broken off the receding Breiðamerkurjökull glacier. They float serenely in the huge lagoon before gliding off into the Atlantic Ocean. Many of these icebergs are washed onto the nearby Diamond Beach, you will see them glittering like diamonds, as they rest on the black volcanic sands of the beach.
We then head into the glacier with a qualified guide! Ice caves are amazing and new caves are formed each winter by the melting and freeze cycle of the glacier. They are always changing, both from year to year and within each winter and our journey into an ice cave will give photographers the most amazing opportunity to capture the shimmering blue light which passes through the glacial ice. We will then start to head towards Reykjavík where we will spend the night.
The following morning after breakfast you’ll be picked up and we will head towards the famous Golden Circle. Our first stop is the Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which was the historic location of the Icelandic Parliament, the Alþingi. Established in 930ce., this is the oldest continuously operated Parliament in the world, situated in one of the most geologically fascinating places as Thingvellir is home to a rift valley between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates and an incredible landscape.
Next, you’ll visit the geothermal Geysir Geothermal Area. Geysir was once a magnificent geyser that lent its name to the English word geyser. Though now dormant, its neighbour Strokkur bursts with scalding water up to 25 meters high every few minutes.
Our final stop is Gullfoss or the Golden Falls, which is the most-visited waterfall in Iceland. The powerful Hvita River roar down the two-tiered cliffs into the canyon below.
After a stop for lunch we then head to the Secret Lagoon, this is the oldest swimming pool in Iceland, a natural hot pool suitable for bathing at all times of the year. The locals call this the “Secret Lagoon” because only they knew it for a long time. Now you have a chance to bathe in the hot water of this outstanding pool with its magical surroundings, which will surely offer great photo opportunities. We then return to Reykjavik and you can check-in to your hotel for a final night in the capital. The following day we will transfer you back to the airport for your flight back to the UK.
