Dec 29th - Jan 3rd
Day 1: Dec 29th
Upon arrival at Keflavik Airport, we will head to the hotel and check-in. Get some rest because tonight, we will plunge straight into a Northern Lights adventure on a Northern Lights super jeep hunt. We will be picked up by the 4x4 super jeep and taken
to off-the-beaten-track locations that a tour bus would be unable to reach, away from the city light pollution and any big crowds. Our expert guide will use the latest forecasts in order to ensure our route offers the best possible Aurora potential. If a display does appear then it will be a truly memorable start to our holiday.
Day 2: Dec 30th
Golden Circle Day Tour: This jam-packed tour takes us out of the city and into the incredible countryside of Iceland. Our transfer will pick us up from the hotel and take us to Thingvellir National Park, an area of great geological and historical significance, where we can admire Thingvallavatn, Iceland’s largest natural lake. We will also see the ethereal Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir hot springs which includes Strokkur - the most active geyser in Iceland.
Day 3: Dec 31st
After breakfast at the hotel, we will walk the short distance to Reykjavik Harbor to take to the seas in search of the majestic whales
which frequent these waters. Marine life which is commonly seen on this tour includes minke and humpback whales, white-beaked
dolphins and harbor porpoises. The expert guide onboard will point out any sightings as we cruise along (they have an incredible ability
to spot the whales from far away). Warm overalls and blankets will be provided. For dinner, let’s head to the renowned Skólabrú Restaurant which offers the freshest local ingredients that will reflect Icelandic cultural heritage and local culinary traditions. Tonight, there will be a number of celebrations around the city to bring in the New Year.
Day 4: Jan 1st
The day is yours to relax (or we can schedule another tour, such as snorkeling in Silfra). The evening we will head back to the harbor and travel out into the North Atlantic Ocean. Watching the twinkling lights of Reykjavik fade into the distance as we head out to sea is a really special sight. On a clear evening, we can even see the mountains outlined above the city. Few places are less impacted by light pollution than the ocean, so fingers crossed there will be clear skies, good solar activity levels and we will be rewarded with a wonderful Northern Lights display!
Day 5: Jan 2nd
Today we will leave Reykjavik and head to Grindavik for a day at one of the 25 wonders of the world: The Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon’s geothermal seawater is 70% ocean water and 30% freshwater, enriched with silica, algae, and minerals. Not only is it a delight simply to soak in, it heals, rejuvenates, and nourishes.
Day 6: Jan 3rd
Time to say Good Bye. Hopefully we will see you again – SOON!
