Tour Map and Itinerary

Day 01 – Welcome to Iceland!

Show on map

Transfer from Keflavík Airport to your hotel in Reykjavík (included).

Once you’re settled in, take the time to explore the city center. Stretch your legs on a beautiful walk around the old harbor. Then why not check out the shops on the main street Laugavegur, before grabbing a bite to eat at a local food hall?

If culture’s your thing, you could stop at some of the city’s many art galleries and museums. Or see how many statues and sculptures you can spot on a wander around town.

Reykjavik

Day 02 – Free day in Reykjavík or optional day tour

Show on map

Today you have the choice of your own adventure. You could spend the day visiting the capital. Reykjavík offers a wide range of sights to visit and lots of activities to enjoy. Walk around to immerse yourself in the culture, visit one of the numerous museums, go shopping, or have a taste of the local cuisine at one of the many delicious restaurants and cafés.

Or you have the possibility to choose one of our best-selling optional day tour before your Northern Lights tour (included) this evening.

The Golden Circle needs little introduction: it is home to some of the most stunning and famous sights in Iceland. You will see the hot spring Strokkur shoot a column of water up to 30 meters (98 feet) into the air every 4-8 minutes. It is a thrilling experience that never gets old. You will stop to admire the magnificent Gullfoss (Golden Falls) waterfall, created where the river Hvítá tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 meters (105 feet) deep. This tour also includes the historical and geological wonder, Þingvellir National Park, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimeters per year.

Additionally you will visit the idyllic Friðheimar greenhouse cultivation center. Here the group will learn about the magic behind growing delicious, pesticide-free tomatoes and cucumbers with the aid of the geothermal heat that Iceland has in abundance.

In the evening

Spend the night on a magical Northern Lights hunt! Your guide will take you away from the urban glow of Reykjavík into the Icelandic countryside.
