  • Day By Day

    Day 1: Arrival & Blue Lagoon Visit

    Welcome to Reykjavik - the picturesque capital of Iceland! Your driver meets you at the airport and transfers you to the famous Blue Lagoon, where you start your Iceland adventure with a relaxing visit to one of the most visited attractions in Iceland.

    You have approximately 2 hours to soak up in the Northern sun while relaxing in warm geothermal seawater surrounded by a surreal lava field.

    After this relaxing experience your private driver transfers you to your hotel for check-in.

    Day 2: Reykjavik City Tour

    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.

    After the tour you are transferred to your hotel.

    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: Tour of the North with a visit to Hvammstangi
