  • Day 2: Reykjavík City Walk & Blue Lagoon

    After breakfast, enjoy an exclusive guided small group walking tour in the heart of Reykjavik with a friendly local guide. The tour starts at the famous Hallgrímskirkja church, one of the best-known landmarks of Reykjavik. Over the course of the 3-hour walk, your guide will introduce you to the bustling downtown area while pointing out great restaurants, charming cafés and museums in the area. Highlights you will visit include the concert hall Harpa, the old harbour area, the parliament building, the small city lake and more! This is a great way to see the best of Reykjavik and get some inside info on hidden gems in the city.

    Later in the afternoon, you will be picked up for a bus transfer to the famous Blue Lagoon. You can spend your time bathing in the heated geothermal pool, which is rich with silica and soothing for your skin.

  • Day 3: The Golden Circle - Geysers & Waterfalls

    Today you will visit some of Iceland’s most famous attractions with a guided personal small group tour of the classic “Golden Circle” route in South Iceland. One of the many highlights on this journey is Þingvellir National Park, a place of great historical and geological significance that is also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Þingvellir is the site of the country’s first parliament and is located along the edge of the great rift created by the drifting of the Eurasian and American tectonic plates. Other attractions include the beautiful two-tiered Gullfoss waterfall and the spouting hot springs of Geysir. While Geysir lies dormant, its neighbour Strokkur erupts every few minutes, gushing steam and water from the bowels of the earth. A taste of Icelandic food and drink is included during the tour. On return to Reykjavik, you will see the beautiful waterfall Faxi.

Here’s a map of your travel route, to help put things in perspective.


We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Some misunderstanding but adequate service

The service was adequate, but as a tourist, we felt like we constantly had to double check everything because of mistakes or misunderstandings. For example, we originally had the city walk and Blue Lagoon booked for the same day even though both of those conflicted. Then the Blue Lagoon was moved to a different day without speaking to us, which conflicted with another tour, so it had to be moved again. The walk to the bus stops was annoying and not disclosed until a few weeks before travel. That could have been fixed by picking different hotels the buses could reach. While a car was offered to us as an option early on, we didn't select this because we assumed we would enjoy the tours more. In hindsight, I would have picked that and a different hotel, which would have been a greater value, allowed us to see more each day, and stay (or leave) each site on our own schedule. Most of the tours are just bus transfers to a site, which is self explanatory, so a car would have been better.


Relax in a top city hotel or guesthouse that is highly rated by visitors and handpicked by local travel experts.

Look forward to sleeping soundly in Iceland. The accommodation you’ll stay in is conveniently located in Reykjavík for pickups for your day trips. Rest assured that you’ll stay in one of the best possible properties, as we only choose accommodation that has received excellent reviews from previous customers.
