Day 1Fly into Iceland's Keflavik Airport, where your tour manager will meet you and a coach will be waiting to carry you to Reykjavik and your hotel. Once you have settled in, enjoy a Welcome Drink at our get-together. It's the perfect opportunity to meet your fellow travellers and discuss your Icelandic tour.
Day 2This morning's included, guided city tour will introduce Reykjavik and its surroundings. Take in city views from extraordinary landmarks such as the Presidential Residence and the towering Hallgrim's Church.In the afternoon, explore Reykjavik under your own steam, or join an optional excursion to the world-famous, mineral-laden Blue Lagoon outdoor spa. No visit to Iceland is complete without a dip in these bubbling geothermal pools, set in the strange lunar-like landscape of a volcanic lava field. You'll round off your day with an included dinner with your fellow travellers at a local restaurant – a wonderful chance to sample the delights of Icelandic food and chat with new friends.
Day 3Discover Iceland's natural treasures on today's hugely popular, optional Golden Circle tour. See the extraordinary Thingvellir lava arena that once hosted the island's national parliament, and the misty torrents of the Gulfoss waterfall. Visit the original Geysir (now all but extinct) and its more active neighbour, the Strokkur waterspout, before returning to Reykjavik.This evening, enjoy the highlight of your tour - an included trip out of the city in search of the Northern Lights, the enchanting Aurora Borealis, that flicker across Iceland's winter skies. Should you be lucky enough to view them, they are an unforgettable sight.
Day 4Explore Reykjavik under your own steam, today, or join our Southern Shore Adventure optional excursion. This journey into wild, rugged Iceland takes us across the lava plateau, down onto the southern coastal lowlands and across the mighty river Olfusa. Discover Eyrarbakki, a coastal village with many old wooden houses, and marvel at Eyjafjallajokull - the volcano that famously closed down European airspace in 2010. We'll also visit Skogafoss waterfall, the icy wall of Solheimajokull and Vik i Myrdal - the southernmost village in Iceland. After lunch (payable locally) we stop on the black sandy beach at Reynisfjara - famous for its birdlife. Afterwards, enjoy a last evening in the Icelandic capital.
Day 4Transfer back to the airport for the return flight to the UK, at the end of a wonderful few days. Back to top
