Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival


4 Day Winter Adventure | Blue Lagoon, the Golden Circle, Snowmobiling & Northern Lights


Take the shuttle bus from the Keflavik International Airport to your hotel in downtown Reykjavik. You'll stay at a cozy hotel in the city center so that you can easily explore the northernmost capital of the world.

On the way to the city, you can make a stop at the Blue Lagoon, for a sensory experience unique to Iceland. Release all your tension, letting the azure water soothe tired muscles and joints. Now, you'll be fully prepared to enjoy your holiday. If your flight arrives late in the day, you will visit the Blue Lagoon on your departure day instead.

If you like, take a complimentary Northern Lights tour in the evening. You may choose what kind of Northern Lights experience you prefer: By boat or by bus. Go for the boat tour in the Old Harbor, to see the dancing lights over the ocean while the wind plays with your hair, or choose a bus tour to head out into the countryside under cover of darkness and watch for glimmers of color against a backdrop of the Icelandic wilderness.

You'll spend the night in Reykjavik.

Your last day in Iceland! We're sad to see you leave!
