Day 1: Arrival in Iceland

On arrival a bus will take you to the Blue Lagoon where you have the opportunity to enjoy a bath outdoors in the warm, greenblue, geothermal water, surrounded by fresh air and greyblack lava cliffs, an experience we warmly recommend.

Bus further on to your hotel in Reykajvik, around 1 hour, on late arrival the trip is offered on return.

Day 2: Northern Light Hunt

Departure from Reykjavík, we take you on a mystery-filled tour in a super jeep. A tour spiced with excitement and surprises, away from the city lights and into the barren landscape in the outskirts of Reykjavík in search of the elusive Northern Lights. On a clear night and with a little luck we can see the lights swirl around in dramatic shapes across the night sky – truly amazing sight.

Operation, choice of roads and availability of activities are dependent on weather and road conditions.

The northern lights are caused by solar winds within the earth’s magnetosphere and sightings rely heavily on favorable conditions. Sightings can under no circumstances be guaranteed.

We recommend that you bring: Good outdoor clothing, waterproof shoes, a pair of gloves and a camera.

Day 3: At your own disposal

Here you have the opportunity to explore the world‘s northern most capital on your own, if you wish we can offer you riding tours, glacier walks and many other adventures.

Maybe you would like to explore the Icelandic cultural life which is very rich! Here are art galleries, museums and many interesting experiences waiting for you, we gladly advice you.

Day 4: Return Home

Bus-transfer to the airport and return flight.
