Open All
Day 1, Sunday: Keflavik – Reykjavik

Arrive at Keflavik International Airport in Iceland. A Flybus transfer is included to your first-class hotel accommodation in Reykjavik, where you will stay for the next two nights. We will provide you with ideas on how to explore Iceland’s capital on your own.

Day 2, Monday: Reykjavik – Cheese and Skyr school – Thingvellir and Fontana Spa

At 09:00 meet the tour guide in the hotel lobby and start the exclusive program with a two-hour Reykjavík city tour. Visit to the exceptional observation tower of the Hallgrímskirkja church offering incredible panoramic views across the city. Learn about Icelandic cheese and the unique dairy product skyr, whilst having a lovely lunch in a cheese school buttery. Depart for Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site and stop for a wellness retreat at the Fontana thermal baths. Stay 3 nights in the luxury country hotel Grímsborgir in South Iceland. After a gourmet dinner, our expert tour guide provides you with a seminar about the Northern Lights and teaches you how to take photos of this natural phenomenon. Step into the darkness, soak in the hotel’s outdoor hot tubs and check if the Northern Lights are visible. These spectacular sky-light shows, also known as the Aurora Borealis, are frequently seen in Iceland from September through April on clear and crisp nights. White and green are usually the dominant colours of Northern Lights here, but sometimes there are considerable colour variations. They are ephemeral, however, therefore sightings are not guaranteed.

Day 3, Tuesday: Geothermal Power – Meet the Locals – Lobster Feast

Visit Gullfoss waterfall and the nearby Geysir geothermal fields with a variety of hot springs and bubbling pools. The explosion crater called Kerið is filled with water and resembles an ancient amphitheatre. Meet a local who tells us all about living in an earthquake active place with its geothermal powers and challenges. You get the opportunity to boil egg in a hot spring and taste bread baked with hot steam. Travel to seashore villages with many old and colourful houses. During a private tour around a local folk museum and a historic wooden church we taste shark meat, dried fish and Brennivín (Black Death) snaps. After a nice langoustine dinner at a nearby seashore restaurant we go outside to watch out for the magical Northern Lights before returning to the hotel.

Day 4, Wednesday: Eyjafallajökull Volcano And Glacier Hike For Beginners

Today, we take you out along the South coast. Travel to the Lava & Volcano Exhibition Center where we learn about geothermal activities and volcanoes. Next stop is at Seljalandsfoss which plunges over the mountain, considered one of Iceland’s most photogenic waterfalls. Nearby is Skógafoss waterfall which is 60 meters high and one of the most impressive waterfalls in the country. You can choose between a guided walk that is specially organised for beginners on a nearby glacier (total walking time is about 3 hours), or continue the bus tour to explore a black lava beach with bird cliffs. After a gourmet dinner at Hotel Grímsborgir, see a video presentation about Northern Lights as a part of the Northern Lights educational program and look out if the auroras are across the sky.

Day 5, Thursday: Viking Ship, Crab Feast & Blue Lagoon

Explore the Reykjanes Peninsula and see the region’s many unusual geological features, hot springs, moon-like landscapes, bird cliffs, lighthouses and fishing villages. Visit a Viking ship and history museum that tells the story about the Viking expansion across the North Atlantic. After a unique seafood & crab feast, we visit the famous Blue Lagoon for a soak in its warm geothermal water. The comfort experience package includes the use of a towel and a bathrobe, a drink of your choice and a volcano scrub or algae mask. After the Blue Lagoon we travel to Reykjavík for cocktail & dinner at the panoramic restaurant at the Pearl, followed by a Northern Lights tour if weather conditions are suitable, and overnight at Icelandair Hotel Marina.
