Day 01: Reykjavik

Arrive in Reykjavik (Keflavik Airport) and transfer to hotel (check-in 14:00hrs), rest of the day is at leisure so you can explore the city. Overnight in Reykjavik (Meals: No Meals)

Day 02: Reykjavik – Northern Lights – Reykjavik

For many, seeing the Northern Lights is the reason to travel to Iceland in winter. Created by solar storms originating from the sun, the Northern Lights need clear winter skies to be seen. So while you have the whole day to enjoy Reykjavik, later in the evening you’ll be picked up to join in the fun of the Aurora Borealis. There is something special about the idea of hunting for the Aurora Borealis and you’ll be totally under its spell. It is a mesmerising experience and a memory that will linger on! 

Our expert operational team has decades of experience analysing weather patterns. We will review, each and everyday, the cloud forecast and the northern lights forecast in detail. We will not venture out in search of them unless we think we have good chance. 

All our northern lights tours are guided by one of our specially trained northern lights guides, they are both knowledgeable and helpful and will even give you tips on how to take photos of the night sky and of aurora. We offer free use of camera tripods (a must to take northern lights photos), we only have a few so if you own a tripod be sure to bring it along.

Every guide brings along an astronomical telescope for you to try out. Look for the stars and astronomy signs in sky using the provided star map and see the space that surrounds in a new way. Overnight in Reykjavik (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 3: Reykjavik – Golden Circle

Can you keep a secret? Today our Icelandic adventure takes us on the Classic Golden Circle one of the most popular day tours. We follow in the footsteps of the Vikings of old, as we walk down into the rift valley where the American and Eurasian continental plates are literally pulling apart at Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of the oldest existing parliament. Watch the steaming geothermal springs as the ground trembles and hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser and one of Iceland’s most iconic natural attraction, as we stand in awe of Experience the magnificence and power of Gullfoss Waterfall, a set of glacial river cascades falling 32 meters into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.

And the secret is revealed! Last stop on our tour, and the most relaxing, is the Secret Lagoon. Whatever the weather, this is the perfect spot for relaxing in between sightseeing and enjoying Icelandic nature. Indeed, the geothermal hot water which stays at a warm 38-40 Celsius is a hidden treat that Icelanders have been enjoying for generations! Around the Secret Lagoon you can also find several hot spots, even a little Geysir that erupts every 5 minutes, showing off for the guests bathing in the hot spring. Overnight Reykjavik (Meals: Breakfast)

Day 4: Reykjavik – Departure (3night stays)

For guests on a 3night stay, this is “goodbye Iceland”, and we transfer to the airport for onward journey. For guests on a 4night stay, day is left at leisure to further explore Reykjavik and perhaps some last-minute shopping or you can book another exciting day tour! Overnight Reykjavik (Meals: Breakfast)
