Discover the startling Icelandic landscape - of smouldering volcanoes, geysers, glaciers and bubbling thermal pools - and have the chance to witness the enchanting Aurora Borealis.

Tour Highlights And Inclusions

  • Enjoy a guided tour of Reykjavik, Europe's most northerly capital city
  • Head out of the city in search of the astonishing Aurora Borealis
  • The opportunity to join an optional excursion to the famous 'Blue Lagoon'
  • Four nights' bed and breakfast accommodation at your chosen hotel in Reykjavik
  • Return flights from your chosen airport to Keflavik
  • Comfortable, air-conditioned coach travel and transfers
  • Fully escorted by a friendly, experienced Tour Manager

Single rooms are available for a supplement

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 transfer to your chosen hotel in the capital. You will have the rest of the day free to relax and explore.

Day Two

An included, guided city tour introduces fascinating Reykjavik and its surroundings this morning. See landmarks such as the Presidential Residence and the towering Hallgrim's Church, and admire the views from the extraordinary 'Pearl' - a glass-domed conference centre converted from disused water tanks.

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.

Later, why not dine out in Reykjavik and seek out a taste of the city's famous nightlife?

Day Three

Discover 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, the highlight of the tour will be an included trip out of the city to search for the Aurora Borealis - the enchanting Northern Lights - flickering in the Icelandic night sky. Should you be lucky enough to view it, the phenomenon is an unforgettable sight.

Day Four

Explore 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 Five

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

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

Viewing the Northern Lights

Please note that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and therefore we cannot guarantee that you will be able to view them during your visit. The order of the itinerary may change in order to give you the best chance of experiencing them.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Passports and visas

You will need a full 10-year British Passport (valid for a further 6 months on return to the UK) for this holiday. Children require their own passport. Holders of non-British Passports may need a visa. If you are in any doubt, please contact both the Iceland Embassy on 020 7259 3999 and the airline prior to departure, as information can change. We cannot except liability if you are refused entry because of invalid documents.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

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.
