Day1

Welcome to Iceland! Check in at your hotel in Reykjavik and get comfortable for your stay in Iceland.   Take a stroll and explore the charm and allure of Old Town Reykjavik and enjoy the Nordic vibe of the town. There's plenty of lovely restaurants to choose from for a bite to eat. Check out one of the many tours available for booking, including whale watching and horse riding. 

Day2

Today you will go on a whale watching tour and set sail from the old harbour to Faxafloi Bay, with stunning views of Mount Esja. Whale sightings are not guaranteed, but occur on 94.4% of the 3 hour tours, with Minke and Humpback whales the two most typically spotted. Although the whales are the number one stars on the trip, Puffins and Guillemots are often spotted.

Day3

Day at your own leisure. We recommend the Golden Circle tour which visits several of Iceland's natural highlights like the geothermal Geysir area and thundering Gullfoss waterfall. For the adventurous, horse riding and glacier walking are popular activities set in stunning scenery.

Day4

Bid farewell to Iceland (for now!) before heading to Keflavik for your return flight home on Icelandair!
