  • Day By Day

    Day 1: Arrival
    Welcome to Reykjavik - the picturesque capital of Iceland! Your driver meets you at the airport and transfers you to your centrally located hotel for check-in.

    The rest of the day is free for you to enjoy the unsurpassed beauty of the surroundings on your own. Overnight in your hotel in Reykjavik.

    Day 2: Reykjavik City Tour & Northern Lights Seeking
    In the morning after breakfast you meet your private driver-guide at the hotel lobby and go on an amazing 3-hour city tour around the most significant places in Reykjavik and the nearby area.

    During the tour you stop by the official residence of the President of Iceland called Bessastadir. Your next stop is Hafnarfjörður - a port town and municipality located about 10 km from Reykjavik. This place is known as the home of the "Hidden people" Huldufolk from local folklore, meaning elves in Iclandic.

    Then you proceed to the futuristic Perlan dome from which you see spectacular views over Reykjavik and its surroundings.

    You make a stop at Hofdi, the building where the all-important summit between the former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and the former U.S.S.R. Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev took place in 1986. Then on to the Hallgrimskirkja Church that is the tallest building in Iceland where you have a chance to walk up the stairs to see the view of the city center (entrance tickets are not included).

    Another place you see today is the Althing building - a classical 19th-century building which is home to the Icelandic parliament's main debating chamber. 

    In the evening, together with your private driver-guide you set off on a 4-hour Northern Lights mystery tour.

    Today you have the chance to see the Northern Lights flashing across the sky in brilliant patterns and learn all about the Aurora Borealis.

    After the tour you return to your hotel and have a free evening.

    Day 3: Golden Circle Tour
    After breakfast you join a group for a fascinating 8-hour tour around the Golden Circle.

    The first highlight of your day trip is visiting the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site - Thingvellir National Park. The national pride of the country, the Thingvellir National Park has a very important historical significance - it is the place where the oldest existing parliament in the world (first assembled in 930 AD) is set. The “Althing” was held here for almost 9 centuries, until 1800. However, it is not only history that attracts thousands of visitors to this unique land.

    Being part of a fissure zone running through Iceland, the Thingvellir area is a great lava arena in a rift valley formed between the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates and serves a visual representation of continental drift. The area also features the largest natural lake in Iceland - Thingvallavatn, surrounded by lava flows and lush vegetation. You then discover the picturesque Gullfoss - one of the most beautiful and popular waterfalls in Iceland.

    Your next stop is the Geysir area scattered with hot springs, mud pools and geysers, including the famous geyser Strokkur - the world´s most active. After the tour you return to your Reykjavik hotel.

    Day 4: Blue Lagoon & Northern Lights Cruise
    In the morning after breakfast you meet your driver and continue your Iceland adventure with a relaxing tour to the Blue Lagoon - one of the most visited attractions in Iceland.

    You have some free time to soak up in the Northern sun while relaxing in warm geothermal seawater surrounded by a surreal lava field.

    In the evening your private driver transfers you to the pier for a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Northern Lights Cruise on board a comfortable boat.

    During the tour your expert guide tells you all about the Northern Lights, the folklore and superstition, and explains the underlying scientific facts that make this magical light show possible. The cruise takes 1,5-2,5 hours. Warm overalls are included. After the cruise you are transferred to your hotel. Overnight in your hotel in Reykjavik.

    Day 5: South Coast Tour
    Following breakfast you join a group for a memorable 10-hour journey to the South Coast of Iceland.

    The very impressive Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls are your first stop. Seljalandsfoss cascades down the mountainside of West Eyjafjoll and is narrow and very high. There is even a path at the bottom of the cliff providing a safe and easy opportunity to walk behind the waterfall.

    You then see Skogafoss - an impressive 60 m high waterfall located in Skogar. You also get to see the Solheimajökull glacier and Reynisfjara shore and black sand beach.

    You then proceed to Vik village the charming southernmost village in Iceland famous for breathtaking mountainous vistas, rich vegetation and bird life. Make sure to take a picture of the three rockstacks called Skessudrangar, Landdrangar and Langhamrar. Rising for up to 66 m from the sea, they are referred to in local folklore as trolls that turn to stone at sunrise.

    After the tour you return to your Reykjavik hotel for overnight.
