DAY 1: ARRIVAL DAY

On arrival at Keflavík Airport, we’ll arrange your transfer into Reykjavik and depending on the time of your arrival, we will be happy to suggest some ideas on how to explore Iceland’s capital, perhaps a Northern Light Hunt, an introduction to Iceland, or a great place to eat.

DAY 2: REYKJAVÍK CITY TOUR, THE BLUE LAGOON & REYKJANES PENINSULA

See the highlights of Reykjavik, followed by the contrasting scenery of the Reykjanes Peninsula. Visit mud pools, sulphur springs, wild bird cliffs and fishing villages and relax at the famous Blue Lagoon. Overnight in the countryside, with Northern Lights programme.

DAY 3: SOUTH ICELAND

Waterfalls, glaciers, folk and culture museum and Iceland’s most infamous volcano, Eyjafjallajökull are all features of today. Either add a guided glacier hike to your day or travel on down to the black sand beach, huge columnar basalt cliffs and coastal village of Vik. Overnight in the countryside, with Northern Lights programme.

DAY 4: HORSES AND THE GOLDEN CIRCLE 

Visit a geothermal tomato farm that is also the home of some beautiful Icelandic horses, followed by the three key highlights of Iceland’s Golden Circle: Geysir geothermal park and watch Strokkur’s steam eruption, Gullfoss the “Golden Waterfall”, and Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and location of the world’s first parliament. Return to Reykjavik overnight. Why not add a Northern Lights cruise to your last evening in Iceland?
