Your Itinerary

View a full breakdown of your holiday to help you plan your trip

  • Fly to Reykjavík's Keflavik Airport, meet your tour manager and make the short transfer into the capital.

    You'll have the rest of the day free. The fascinating city of Reykjavík, or Smoky Bay sits on a promontory jutting into the crystal clear waters of Faxaflói Bay, and is framed by majestic Mount Ejsa. The city’s brightly painted wooden buildings stand in sharp contrast to the stunning beauty of its setting, surrounded by water, distant ice and lava fields dotted with geysers and thermal springs.

    With a host of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops, Reykjavík justifies its claim to be among Europe’s hippest cities, despite its remote location. This evening, why not head to one of the many eateries in the compact city-centre, which range from the usual fast-food outlets to a host of restaurants serving traditional Icelandic and international cuisine? Seafood is hugely popular, and don’t miss the Icelandic lamb – said to be the best in the world. Wine is notoriously expensive, but beer is a refreshingly cheaper option, with several recently opened craft breweries adding local choice alongside the international brands.

  • This morning’s included guided tour will be the ideal way to get acquainted with Reykjavík and its surroundings. Among 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. Take in the views of the city and the harbour beyond from its viewing platform.

    You’ll also see the Presidential Residence, in its idyllic shore-side setting at Bessastaðir, and the brightly coloured fishing town of Hafnarfjord, as well as the Icelandic Houses of Parliament, the Lutheran Cathedral, the University Quarter and the towering Hallgrim’s Church, Iceland’s tallest – and most memorable – building.

    This afternoon you'll have the chance to explore Reykjavík further under your own steam, although many will want to join our optional excursion to the world-renowned Blue Lagoon outdoor spa. No visit to Iceland is complete without a dip in these bubbling geothermal pools.

  • Today gives you the opportunity to experience "Iceland in a Nutshell", on our hugely popular Golden Circle tour. Join our tour manager for an unforgettable day that includes visits to extraordinary Þingvellir, a great lava arena deep in the Continental Rift valley where the world’s oldest national parliament (the Alþingi) was established in 930AD, and to Þingvallavatn, Iceland’s largest freshwater lake.

    You’ll also see the active geothermal area site where the original Geysir is now all but extinct, but where its near neighbour, the Strokkur waterspout, erupts impressively every 10 minutes or so. Your fascinating tour will end with a visit to the stunning Gullfoss waterfall, perhaps Iceland’s most beautiful natural wonder.

    This evening brings the highlight of your break – your included trip out of the city in search of a sighting of the Northern Lights. This truly awe-inspiring celestial wonder is caused by the interaction of solar particles with the polar atmosphere, and is a never-to-be-forgotten sight should you be lucky enough to see it. It's a fitting end to your final night in Iceland.

  • Transfer back to the airport to board your flight back to the UK at the end of a wonderful few days.

Further Information

  • The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 45 minutes.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • New rules now apply on travel within Europe.

    Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air though.

    New rules apply when travelling to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure:

    Passport
    British passport holders need to have at least six months validity left on their passport and it needs to be less than ten years old. These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.
    Visa
    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.
    Border Control
    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required.
    Healthcare Cover
    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.

    The current European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) remains valid although when this expires you will need to apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note both EHIC and GHIC are only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
    Mobile Roaming
    It seems currently unlikely that roaming charges will be introduced by UK providers when visiting the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Prior to travel though, please do check with your phone operator for the most up to date information.
