NC-01 – Iceland New Years Eve Trip for 5 Days

 

Day 1 (December, 28): Arrival and Northern Lights Tour

Christmas Vacation IcelandOnce you arrive at Keflavik International Airport, our private chauffeur will pick you up and transfer you to your accommodation in the heart of Reykjavik. Explore the highlights of the city like Harpa Concert Hall, Hallgrímskirkja Church, and the Laugarvegur shopping street. We recommend visiting the Northern Lights Center (optional) in the old harbor area where you can learn more about the science behind this amazing phenomenon. If you want to add a tour to your day, we recommend joining an early evening beer tasting (optional) paired with traditional Icelandic cuisine in a local brewery.

Later in the day, you will be picked up for a guided Northern Lights tour by bus. The tour will take you away from the city lights where you will hopefully be able to spot this natural phenomenon dancing in the night sky. Afterward, you’ll be transferred back to your accommodation in Reykjavik. You stay for the next 4 nights in a comfortable accommodation in the city center.

Highlights of the day: Reykjavik, Northern Lights Tour

Day 2 (December, 29): Golden Circle Tour & Secret Lagoon

iceland-guided-summer-tourToday you will visit some of Iceland’s most popular attractions along the classic “Golden Circle” route. First, you will visit the fascinating Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where you can walk between tectonic plates. You will also see the fountain geyser Strokkur (Icelandic for “churn”) erupting every 4 to 8 minutes and you will visit Gullfoss, the “golden waterfall”, which is often covered in ice during winter time.

This tour takes place in a minibus and on top of visiting the mentioned “must see places”, you will also bathe in a natural hot pool. The name of this charming location is “Secret Lagoon”, it was made in 1891 and is the oldest swimming pool in Iceland. This unique pool is the perfect alternative to the more popular Blue Lagoon. The pool is located in an active geothermal area so the water is naturally heated. After your adventure, you will be returned back to Reykjavík. Enjoy a free evening at leisure.

Highlights of the day: Þingvellir National Park, Geyser area, Gullfoss waterfall, visit of the Secret Lagoon, and more

You will not be bored in the Northernmost capital city: you can visit some of the landmarks like Hallgrímskirkja, Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Center and Sun Voyager Sculpture. If you want to add some more adventure, we can also book an ATV tour or a horseback riding tour for you.

In the evening, we recommend a nice dinner (optional). It is also possible to join a guided tour to a local bonfire, a real “New Year´s tradition” (optional). The custom of having bonfires on New Year’s Eve in Iceland dates back to the 18th century and the locals gather around the many bonfires set-up all over the city, celebrating and singing. Experience the outstanding and spectacular firework show at midnight. One of the best (but also most crowded places) is at the Hallgrims Church. After the fireworks show you can experience the world famous and thrilling Reykjavik nightlife.
