    On arrival to Keflavik Airport, you will be greeted by a driver who will take you to your accommodation in Reykjavík. The rest of the day is at your leisure. The colourful city centre is always full of life, offering a great variety of museums, shops and cosy cafes to suit all tastes. Then in the evening, enjoy a guided small group tour into the countryside for a chance to see the mysterious northern lights. On a clear night, if conditions are right, these dazzling lights can appear in a variety of dancing shapes and colours.*

    Spend the next two nights in Reykjavik.

    * Please note that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, so sightings cannot be guaranteed.


    Visit some of Iceland’s most famous attractions with a guided small group tour of the classic “Golden Circle” route in South Iceland. One of the 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. Other attractions include the beautiful two-tiered Gullfoss waterfall and the spouting hot springs Geysir and Strokkur. A taste of Icelandic food and drink is included during the tour. On return to Reykjavik, you will see the beautiful waterfall Faxi.

    Tonight at 19:00, the holiday festivities kick off at an exclusive New Year’s Eve party hosted by Nordic Visitor. This New Year’s celebration takes place at Gamla Bíó, a beautiful venue in the heart of downtown Reykjavik. This party is more than just dinner and drinks. Guests will be able to attend a traditional bonfire where Icelanders gather to sing songs about the hidden people. You will also enjoy entertainment at the venue, and have a delicious 3-course dinner, topped off with sparkling wine at midnight. You will be treated to a roof top view over Reykjavik harbour for the fireworks at midnight. It will be quite the show! Once the exclusive celebration finishes, you can continue the party, like the locals, in the city centre with music and dancing late into the night.

    Please note: the party has an age limit of 12 years. If you are travelling with younger children, please contact us; we will be happy to offer an alternative option for dinner on New Year’s Eve.

    A great way to start the New Year and freshen up before your flight is a soothing soak in the warm mineral waters of the Blue Lagoon, out in the fresh air surrounded by a surreal lava landscape. From there, transportation is provided by bus directly to Keflavik Airport for your journey home. 

    Note: If your flight is in the morning, we can adjust your travel itinerary accordingly.

Wished we could stay longer

Overall excellent trip and we really enjoyed ourselves. We spent a lot of time exploring Reykjavik on foot and loved it. We both felt the trip too short in the end and wished we could stay longer. I definitely plan on returning to Iceland for a longer duration and during a different time of the year, I would love to see more of the country. 

They were awesome

They helped plan and book my entire trip. everything was perfect. all the pick ups, all the activities, i would use them again in a second. Thanks Helga.....

A Wonderful Experience!

I highly recommend booking your nordic trip with Nordic Visitor. Gudrun and her colleagues provided exception service from my very first email inquiry. I was kept informed of the status of my booking and complete details were emailed in plenty of time to review and ask questions prior to my departure to Iceland. My only regret was that I didn't stop by their office in Reykjavik to say "hello" and thank them for a job well done. 
All of the tours that were part of the New Year's Eve package were great! The guides were are very warm and friendly and really wanted their guests to feel comfortable and have a great time. 
I'm so looking forward to visiting Iceland again and will definitely book my trip through Nordic Visitor! 


The whole experience was great. I am very pleased with my trip and how everything was arranged.


Sleep soundly, in the accommodation type of your choice, and wake up ready to enjoy another day of exploration.

Other Details
Please note that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon and therefore sightings cannot be guaranteed even if the guided tour is operated. If weather conditions are not favourable, we reserve the right to cancel a tour and offer a full refund.
The average temperate in Reykjavik in January is around -0.6 C (31 F) so we strongly urge bringing warm clothes and plenty of layers, especially for fireworks and northern lights viewing.
Note about the Blue Lagoon on 1st January: As this attraction is busier than usual during the holiday season, we will be booking you on the earliest departure to get you there before most visitors are expected to arrive.
If you would prefer a different departure time, please inform your travel consultant as soon as you can.
For the Blue Lagoon:
The minimum age requirement for children at the Blue Lagoon is 2-years-old. It is mandatory for children ages 2- to 8-years-old to wear inflatable armbands in the lagoon. These are provided free of charge. Please note that only two (2) children under the age of 10 can be admitted into the lagoon per guardian. 
Currency rate
All bookings are charged in Icelandic Króna (ISK), the official currency of Iceland. Prices displayed in other currencies are indicative only and based on the daily exchange rate as issued by the Central bank of Iceland. Therefore, conversions from ISK to other currencies will fluctuate from day to day.

After booking your package with Nordic Visitor, you will be contacted within two working days by one of our travel consultants, who will serve as your dedicated contact person for all of your travel needs before, during and even after your holiday.
