The land of the '13 Santas'!
NOW EXTENDED UNTIL 31ST OCTOBER*
Enjoy a festive break in Reykjavik - one of Europe's most surprising and welcoming capitals. Take part in traditional Icelandic celebrations, explore the island's startling natural wonders and search the skies above for signs of the flickering Northern Lights.
Fly to Iceland's Keflavik Airport, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to the hotel. Today is St Thorlakur's Day, and Icelanders traditionally celebrate with a meal of skate and spend the day decorating their Yule tree and shopping for gifts in stores open until midnight.
Discover Reykjavik's towering Hallgrim's Church, the iconic Pearl centre, the Presidential Residence in its idyllic waterside setting, the Houses of Parliament and the Lutheran Cathedral on today's optional city tour.
Day Two (Christmas Eve)
Later, enjoy the excitement as the Christmas celebrations begin with a buffet dinner at your hotel. But watch out; the 13 nights before Christmas are marked, in Iceland, by visits from the 13 Jolasveinar - the mischievous mythical Yule Lads who "come to town" to leave small presents for good children and play tricks on naughty ones, and the last one arrives tonight!
Spend today relaxing and celebrating. Enjoy Christmas dinner at the hotel and, this evening, venture out of the city in search of the Aurora Borealis. The flickering ribbons of light that ripple across the night sky are a sight you'll remember forever if you're lucky enough to see them, and a fitting end to an unforgettable Christmas.
Day Three (Christmas Day)
Today's hugely popular optional 'Golden Circle' tour of Iceland will reveal the island's extraordinary lava-strewn landscape, bubbling geysers and plunging waterfalls. After a day of discovery, spend your final evening in Reykjavik dining out or enjoying a taste of the city's famous nightlife.
Transfer back to the airport to board your flight home.
