Itinerary

Make your own way to Reykjavik, where we'll meet you at the airport and transfer you to your hotel. You'll meet your travelling companions over a drink and dinner this evening.​​
Reykjavik is Iceland's vibrant capital. It boasts some intriguing buildings and a lively cultural scene with plenty of cafés, galleries and museums. What's more, Iceland provides some of the best Northern Lights viewing conditions in the world, so if you're lucky you may see this natural phenomenon at some point during your holiday. It is also a destination that boasts an abundance of spectacular wildlife – there's a chance you might spot a whale from the shore, or see seabirds which nest along the coastline.​

​We'll discover Reykjavik's highlights on a tour this morning. A Local Guide will show us the main sights including the fishing harbour, Parliament buildings and The Pearl – one of the city's most recognizable landmarks consisting of six huge hot water storage tanks.
This afternoon is free for you to explore at your own pace. You could perhaps head out with your travelling companions and visit the Settlement Exhibition. Here, the remains of a 10th century Viking longhouse are on display, along with other artefacts from the Viking age. 
There's also the opportunity to join an optional whale-watching cruise later this afternoon. This unmissable adventure gives you the opportunity to see these incredible creatures in their natural environment - although sightings can never be guaranteed.
This evening we'll gather as a group to enjoy a four-course meal at a local restaurant.​

​We're going to explore the Golden Circle today, a popular sightseeing route looping from Reykjavik, into central Iceland and back again. Our first stop will be at the mighty waterfall at Gullfoss, where the water tumbles over two stages into a deep canyon. Next we'll visit the Strokkur Geyser, one of Iceland's most famous. It erupts every few minutes, with the water reaching heights of up to 40 metres - it really is a spectacular sight! 
The aurora borealis, also known as the Northern Lights, are a dazzling natural phenomenon. These colourful dancing lights appear when charged particles from the sun's solar wind interact with the Earth's magnetic field, and we'll go off in search of them one evening during our stay when the best viewing conditions are forecast. 

​The Blue Lagoon is a stunning natural geothermal pool located in the middle of a lava field. This soothing body of water is rich in minerals and reputed to have curative powers – so why not join this morning's optional visit, dive in and judge for yourself! While you are here be sure to head to the Silica bar, where you can apply silica mud to your face and body, which will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. You can also linger beneath the lagoon's man-made waterfall, which is said to ease tension in stiff muscles. Other amenities include a sauna and steam baths, which are carved into the lava rock, and a relaxation area, where you can take breaks from the water as you laze in comfortable chairs, listen to music and take in the amazing views out over the lagoon. The relaxed theme continues with an afternoon at leisure. Perhaps take some time to enjoy the facilities at your hotel, or head out with your travelling companions to explore a little further.

At the end of your tour, you can join your fellow travellers on a transfer to the airport or choose to make your own arrangements.​

Your whale watching adventure begins at Reykjavik´s Old Harbour, just minutes away from the city centre! The boats offer great comfort, a fantastic interior, large outside viewing decks and a safe family environment. The friendly guides, along with the captain and crew, point out where to spot the whales and give interesting information about the different kinds of whales and seabirds you can expect to see. We recommend warm clothes, such as hats, mittens and scarfs, as it does get cold out on sea.
