City Information

Although situated almost on the Arctic Circle, compact Reykjavik is 'warmed' by the Gulf Stream and is surprisingly temperate. Set between the mountains and the sea, with an almost 'Toytown'-like appearance due to its colourfully painted wooden houses, it offers a wide range of shopping, some excellent restaurants and cafes, and a lively night-life.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Iceland's Keflavik Airport, meet your Tour Manager and make the short transfer into the capital. The rest of the day is free.

Day Two

This morning's included guided tour will be the ideal way to get acquainted with Reykjavik and its surroundings. Amongst the highlights will be the extraordinary 'Pearl', a collection of disused water tanks now crowned with a glass dome and converted into a conference centre and meeting place, and from the viewing platform of which you can look out over the city and the harbour beyond. You'll take in the Presidential Residence in its idyllic shore-side setting at Bessastaoir, and the brightly coloured fishing town of Hafnarfjord, as well as the Houses of Parliament, the Lutheran Cathedral, the University Quarter and the towering Hallgrim's Church, Iceland's tallest - and most memorable - building.

This afternoon gives you the chance to explore Reykjavik under your own steam, although many will want to join the optional excursion to the world-renowned Blue Lagoon outdoor spa, whose mineral-laden waters have long been recognised for their health-giving properties - for which no visit to Iceland is complete without a visit.

Day Three

Today brings the opportunity to experience 'Iceland in a Nutshell', on the hugely popular optional Golden Circle tour. Join our Tour Manager for an unforgettable day that includes visits to the extraordinary sight of Thingvellir, a great lava arena deep in the Continental Rift valley, where the world's oldest national parliament, the Althing, was established in 930AD, and to Thingvallavatn, Iceland's largest freshwater lake. You'll also take in the active geothermal area site where the 'original' Geysir is now all but extinct, but where its near neighbour Strokkur spouts impressively every ten minutes or so. The fascinating tour is completed with a visit to the stunning Gullfoss waterfall, perhaps Iceland's most beautiful natural wonder.

This evening, the highlight of the break will be the included trip out of the city in search of a sighting of the fabled Aurora Borealis, the celestial wonder caused by the interaction of solar particles with the polar atmosphere during the winter months. Truly awe-inspiring, the Northern Lights, should you be lucky enough to view them, are a never-to-be-forgotten sight.

Day Four

A last day gives you the chance to explore Reykjavik under your own steam, although many will want to join the Southern Shore Adventure optional excursion. Our journey into wild, rugged Iceland begins by driving over a lava plateau, descending onto the southern coastal lowlands and crossing Olfusa, Iceland's greatest river. We arrive at Eyrarbakki, a coastal village with many old wooden houses, then continue towards the Eyjafjalla and Myrdalsjokull glaciers in Southern Iceland, to marvel at the Eyjafjallajokull volcano that famously closed down European airspace in 2010.

We continue to the impressive Skogafoss waterfall, then on to the ice-wall of Solheimajokull, before we reach the village of Vik i Myrdal, the southernmost village in Iceland. After a lunch break (payable locally) we reach the volcanic black sandy beach of Reynisfjara that is famous for its bird species including puffins.

Spend your last evening in the Icelandic capital, perhaps dining out or enjoying a taste of the famous nightlife.

Day Five

Transfer back to the airport for the return flight to the UK, at the end of a truly wonderful few days.

LINDA

Hertfordshire Single traveller
Thoroughly enjoyed this short break to Reykjavik.Loved trip to Blue Lagoon! also did Golden Circle Tour and Southern Shore Excursion,all very enjoyable. Think the 5day holiday is enough time to spend there, as don't think there would be enough to sustain my interest for any longer than that. Icelandic people were very friendly and English is widely spoken. Would probably return at some point, maybe visiting different parts of Iceland. The holiday guide was very pleasant and informative throughout the stay, and the Hotel Central Plaza was nice, clean and comfortable. Overall, a very good experience, but very disappointed that the Northern Lights didn't make an appearance!

Iceland is horrendously expensive but we did have a fabulous time, thank you. The hotel rooms weren't as good as we'd hoped but were OK. All the coach drivers were superb and the Icelandic tour guide was very informative and had a most amusing turn of phrase!

Luton Single traveller
A smoothly run holiday package with well organised and very interesting excursions. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

The only downside was the very basic hotel accommodation. I was unable to book the better quality centrally located hotel due to restrictions on single bookings.
