Day 1 (December, 29): Arrival and Northern Lights Tour

Christmas Vacation IcelandOnce you arrive in Keflavik International Airport, our private chauffeur will pick you up and transfer you to your hotel in the heart of Reykjavik. Explore the pearls 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.

In the evening, you will be picked up at your accommodation 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 phenomena dancing in the night sky. Afterwards, you’ll be transferred back to your accommodation in Reykjavik. You stay for the next 5 nights in a comfortable accommodation in the city center.

Highlights of the day: Reykjavik, Northern Lights Tour

In the early evening, you will visit the famous Blue Lagoon (transfer by bus from your hotel to the lagoon and back), a spa located in a magnificent black lava field.
