Itinerary
Open All
Day 1: Arrive Iceland – transfer to Reykjavik

With daily flights from many cities in the US and Canada Iceland with very competitive fare, Iceland is easier than ever to get to whether as your end destination or as a short en route stop.

The order the tours are taken may be changed to fit the tour schedules or customized to suit your needs.

Upon arrival at Keflavik Airport in Iceland, transfer via the Flybus to downtown Reykjavik, where you will join a sightseeing tour of this unique capital city. The two and a half hour tour will highlight the history and culture of Reykjavik and makes stops to give you the opportunity to stretch your legs after the flight! Return to your hotel where you will spend the next four nights.

 

Day 2: Golden Circle

Today you will have a full-day Golden Circle tour, visiting the Geysir hot spring area, the famous Gullfoss or Golden waterfall and the ancient parliament at Thingvellir National Park. Perhaps off-road driving is more your style, crossing rivers and hiking in the Thorsmork reserve surround by mountains and glaciers. Get active on a rafting, kayaking, horseback riding or cave exploring day excursion.

Day 3: Whale Watching

Walk to the main harbour pier and join your pre-booked whale watching tour out in Reykjavik harbour. We recommend a late morning or early afternoon tour, giving you the balance of your day free.
