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

Spend the day at your leisure. In the evening you will sail away from the coastline of Reykjavik with the Northern Lights by Boat tour. Searching for the Aurora Borealis out on the North-Atlantic ocean with beautiful mountains and the city lights in the background is something you won't forget. An expert guide will tell you all about the Northern Lights, the folklore and superstition, as well as explaining the underlying scientific facts that make this magical light show possible. Warm overalls are available, since it does get chilly in the winter and usually much of the time is spent outside gazing at the night sky. Warm and cosy seating area with cafe/snackbar inside the boat is also available. Departures range from 9 to 10pm, depending on the time of year, with hotel pick-ups beginning at 60 minutes prior. The Northern Lights are a natural phenomena and their appearance cannot be guaranteed.

Day3

Today you will visit the famous Blue Lagoon for some relaxation. There are separate changing and shower rooms for men and women. They are modern and spacious, with private lockers for your clothes and other belongings. Cleanliness is a fundamental aspect of geothermal spa experience and a full body shower, without a bathing suit, is absolutely essential prior to entering the spa area. Private shower cubicles are available in both male and female changing rooms. You can stay at the Blue Lagoon as long as you would like on that day. Return buses to hotels operate frequently and are included in the package. 

Day4

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