Itinerary

Day 1. Arrival


Please note that Extra nights can be added to the package upon request.

Upon arrival at Keflavik airport a Flybus transfer is included to your chosen accommodation in Reykjavik. You will be free for the rest of the day to explore Reykjavik, visit museums, landmarks etc. Visit the Northern Lights Center, where you will learn about the phenomenon of northern lights by viewing facts and figures on wall posters, HD screens and interactive devices. Downtown Reykjavík offers excellent restaurants, cafés, bars and clubs.

Day 2. Langjökull Ice Cave Experience


Visit a unique and remote man-made Ice Cave in Langjökull, one of Iceland's largest and most spectacular glaciers. You begin the tour by bus from BSÍ Bus Terminal and drive to the lush Húsafell area with stops at Europe's most powerful hot spring Deildartunguhver and the beautiful Hraunfossar lava waterfalls. After a lunch break in Húsafell, we head on up to Langjökull, partly in a specially modified glacier vehicle. It will take us almost to the top of the glacier, where we enter the magnificent cave.

Before you realize you find yourself standing on top of a vast ice-cap, ready to enter the glacier and explore its icy underworld. The glacier guide will take you on an amazing journey, deep within the glacier where you can see the stunning blue-hued ice.

Going into the glacier is an unforgettable trip which takes place in one of the world's greatest wilderness.

Imagine standing on an ice cap reaching 200 metres below your feet!

Day 3. Blue Lagoon and Northern Lights Hunt


Start your afternoon by visiting Iceland's most famous attraction, the Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland's most famous tourist attractions and considered by many to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, as well as an unmissable part of one´s visit to Iceland.

The Blue Lagoon offers lava and moss filled scenery, state of the art facilities, a unique atmosphere and silica masks that make your skin extra firm, yet incredibly soft!

Included in this combo is the Blue Lagoon Comfort Package where you receive entrance to the Blue Lagoon, silica mud mask, use of a towel, and a drink of your choice.

After an amazing warm soak in the geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon, you head back to Reykjavik on one of our new and comfortable coaches, offering you free Wi-Fi.

Upon arrival back in Reykjavik, you have some free time to relax, have dinner and wait for your next adventure in the evening, a hunt for the extraordinary northern lights. Make sure to wear warm clothes!

The Northern Lights Tour in Iceland takes you to see a spectacular natural phenomenon that happens during the winter months. The northern lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole.

The locations visited during the northern lights tour vary from day to day depending on weather conditions. Our northern lights team studies thoroughly the weather and aurora forecasts in order to find the best location each night to spot the lights. Because this tour is weather dependent, sightings are not guaranteed. However, if you don‘t see any northern lights during this tour, you are welcome to join the tour again, free of charge.

Day 4. Golden Circle Classic


The Golden Circle Classic Tour (duration 6-7 hours) takes you on a wondrous circular journey through the heart of Iceland’s Southern Region, stopping at some of Iceland’s most iconic sites.

Ţingvellir National Park is an attraction of great historical, geological and cultural significance. Located in a rift valley where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet, the UNESCO designated world heritage site is also the birthplace of the Althing—Iceland’s parliament founded in 930 AD—where the nation’s most powerful leaders would meet to decide on legislation and carry out brutal Viking-age justice.

From Ţingvellir, the tour continues across an area of picturesque scenery to the mighty Gullfoss waterfall. Once there, you can take several paths around the two tiers of cascading water to explore several vantage points. Extra time is allotted at this location for a lunch break at Gullfoss Café.
Home of “The Great Geysir” hot spring, which all geysers are named after, this area is an impressive collage of bubbling mud pools, hissing steam vents, and colourful algae deposits. Strokkur geyser puts on quite the show every few minutes blasting boiling water high up into the air.

While any one of these stops makes incredible fodder for your Instagram feed, they also all have rich histories and fascinating tales, each told with their own nuances by our knowledgeable guides. It’s not just facts and figures that bring these places to life, but the compelling stories our guides have collected over time.

Day 5. Departure


A Fly Bus transfer from your hotel or a nearby Bus Stop to Keflavík airport in time for your departure flight.

Please note: Regarding Ice Cave & Northern Lights tours: - As your safety is our number one concern we will make every effort to find the best suited and safest ice caves at each time but as the conditions around and in the glacier, are constantly changing and being shaped by the elements it is not possible to guarantee that entrance to the ice caves. If such unfortunate situations arise we will make every effort to make other stops, and your experience more enjoyable. As the Northern lights can be very elusive, their sighting cannot be guaranteed but if conditions offer a glimpse of hope we will go on a Northern lights hunt. In Iceland all itineraries are designed to be flexible taking weather conditions into account. We reserve the right to change your itinerary or cancel it with your safety in mind. All glacier and adventure trips are undertaken on the responsibility of its participants. Participants must be aware that all outdoor activities carry an inherit risk and are undertaken entirely at their own risk.
