Day 1 | Arrival in Iceland and Reykjavik

Your Northern Lights vacation in Iceland is about to begin! Once you arrive at Keflavik International Airport, you will be transferred to your hotel in the heart of Reykjavík. We will invite you for a private meeting, concerning the upcoming days and will recommend places to visit and some activities if you have time. In the afternoon explore some landmarks of the city like Perlan landmark, Hallgrímskirkja Church, Harpa – Music & Conference center and the Sun Voyager sculpture. In the evening, the gourmet restaurants of Reykjavik will welcome you and afterward, the bars are open until 1:00 am during weekdays and 4:00 am during weekends. You stay for the next three nights in an accommodation in the heart of Reykjavík.

Day 2 | Golden Circle Tour

Today you will explore the southern part of Iceland. You will be picked up by the excursion company shortly before 9:00 am. Begin your day by going to Þingvellir National Park. Þingvellir because of its beauty and its geological and historical value was accepted as UNESCO’s heritage site in 2004. After exploring the treasures of the park, you will head south to see Gullfoss Waterfall. It is ideal to have a bowl of traditional meat soup at Gullfoss café. You will make a shortstop at Hellisheiðarvirkjun geothermal power plant before continuing to Reykjavik. In the evening, we recommend that you take a walking tour (or by taxi) to the Seltjarnarnes peninsula which is within the greater Reykjavik area, to check if the Northern Lights are visible.

Duration

~9 hours

Day 3 | Blue Lagoon and Northern Lights Adventure

In the morning you will be picked up at your hotel for a visit to the famous Blue Lagoon, where you will have the opportunity to soak in the geothermal spa. If you want you can add to the experience and enjoy a 30-minute relaxing water massage (optional).  In the evening you will join a guided Northern Light tour, where you will get to chase these natural wonders around the crisp Arctic sky along the beautiful countryside of Iceland. If you are interested you can also upgrade to a Northern Lights Tour with a super jeep or you combine a Northern Lights super jeep tour with a wonderful lobster feast. After, we hope, a successful Northern Light hunt you will return back to the city.

Day 4 | Departure Day
