Day 1
Arrival in Reykjavik & Northern Lights Tour

Welcome to the picturesque capital of Iceland, incredible Reykjavik! Your driver meets you at the airport upon landing and takes to the centrally located hotel for check-in.

After that, you set off on an orientation drive Reykjavik to discover the main sights of the city. You see the official residence of the President of Iceland called Bessastadir, as well as Hofdi, the building where the all-important summit between the former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and the former U.S.S.R. Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev took place in 1986. 

Another place you visit today is the Althing building - a classical 19th-century building that is home to the Icelandic parliament's main debating chamber.

In the evening, you start your Northern Lights hunt with a private jeep tour. Together with your driver-guide, you get out of the city, away from its light pollution. The cloud coverage is checked beforehand so you are taken to places where you will have better chances to catch the amazing Aurora Borealis. Examples of such destinations include the Kleifarvatn Lake, where you are likely to see the green reflections of the Aurora in the water or Thingvellir National Park to spot the Aurora dancing above the mountains. The tour takes approximately 3 hours after which you are taken back to your hotel.

  • Please, note: in case of early arrival, you can opt for a visit to the Blue Lagoon Geothermal Pool or attend the Wonders of Iceland Exhibition and Planetarium in Perlan.

No meals included.
