  • Day 1: Welcome to Reykjavik & Northern Lights

    On arrival to Keflavik International Airport, you will be greeted by a professional driver who will take you to your accommodation in Reykjavík. After settling in, the rest of the day is free for you to explore Reykjavik. You can stroll the charming capital city, visit museums, and explore landmarks. Downtown Reykjavík offers numerous excellent restaurants, cafés, coffeehouses, and bars, for those who want to experience the renowned Reykjavík nightlife.

    In the evening, get ready to search for the otherworldly northern lights. You will join a guided small group bus tour with a knowledgeable driver that will find a great spot to view the white, green and sometimes red lights dancing and flickering in the sky.

    Spend the next five nights in Reykjavik.

    Attractions Optional Activity
  • Day 2: The South Coast - Glaciers and Black Sand Beaches

    Enjoy a guided small group tour along the striking south coast of Iceland. The tour starts with the picturesque Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which is 40-metres high and its main attraction, besides the scenery, is the pathway leading behind the waterfall, giving visitors a chance to view the falls from within. Next up is a view of the vast glacier Sólheimajökull before continuing to Reynisfjara, a hauntingly beautiful black sand beach. The last stop before heading back to Reykjavik is the graceful, 60-metre high Skógafoss waterfall to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and pose for the perfect picture.

    Please note: For arrivals on the 29th of December, we will adjust the tour so the South Coast bus tour will be moved from day 2 to day 5 of the itinerary.

    Spend the night in Reykjavik.

  • 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.

    Spend the night in Reykjavik.

    Please note: The set date for the Golden Circle tour is the 30th of December and cannot be altered. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your travel consultant.

  • Day 4: New Year's Eve Festivities & Exclusive Party

    Enjoy an easy morning after yesterday’s adventure. If you do venture out, please note that most businesses are generally open until 13:00 today. After lunch, your Icelandic New Year‘s Eve experience begins with a local guide showing you around the city, allowing you to take part in local traditions. After a stop at the fireworks sales—an essential Icelandic New Year’s ritual—you will get to know Icelandic new years traditions. You will have a chance to taste some local food, admire the city‘s Christmas decorations and have a chance to set off the fireworks that were purchased.

    Tonight at 19:00, you will attend 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 and this day is set on 31 December. 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.

  • Day 5: Relax at the Blue Lagoon

    Today, you will be picked for a visit to the famous Blue Lagoon. You have time to bathe in the heated geothermal pool, which is rich with silica and soothing for your skin. You can also enjoy a sauna or steambath and an array of spa services (which must be booked in advance).

    If you are up for more adventure, you can book a northern lights excursion. For instance, you could take a northern lights boat tour, where you could see the majestic lights flicker and dance in the sky, far from the bright city lights of Reykjavik.

    Please note: For arrivals on the 27th of December, we will adjust the tour so the Blue Lagoon will be moved from day 5 to day 3 of the itinerary.

  • Day 6: Departure from Iceland

    Your winter getaway to Iceland has come to an end, and you will have a semi-private transfer from your accommodation to Keflavik International Airport. If you are departing in the afternoon and are interested in adding an optional activity, please arrange with your travel consultant in advance, as there are a limited number of activities available due to the holiday.

The New Year´s Eve Party has an age limit of 12 years. If travelling with younger children, please contact us and we will be happy to offer you an alternative option for dinner on New Year’s Eve. 

The New Year’s Eve Party includes alcoholic beverages. In Iceland, the legal drinking age is 20 years old so you might need to present an ID at the event. For those younger and those who prefer not to drink alcoholic beverages, non-alcoholic beverages will be offered.

Please note that a transfer is not included to/from the venue, but it‘s centrally located and within walking distance from most hotels in city centre. It‘s also easily accessible by taxis.

Travellers can choose to add-on selected optional activities when booking online. Customers can also choose to upgrade bus tours to super jeep tours. It is also possible to add-on extra nights to packages along with customising the tours to client needs.

Please note that the Blue Lagoon is busier than usual during the holiday season, we will be booking your entrance at a specific time with a specific duration at the lagoon. If you would prefer a different departure time, please inform your travel consultant as soon as possible.

Please note that your scheduled transfer to the Blue Lagoon can be on a coach bus, with up to 70 fellow travellers.

The minimum age requirement for children at the Blue Lagoon is 2-years old. It is mandatory for children aged 2 to 8 to wear inflatable armbands while 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.

The best months to experience the northern lights are October through April, with peak visibility from December through February. Please note that as the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, we cannot guarantee sightings even if the tour is operated.

Please be advised that daylight is limited in Iceland during the winter months, with 4-5 hours of daylight from December to January. However, fresh snowfall often gives the appearance of more light, and it is common that houses, streets and businesses are lit up with Christmas lights, so don't fear that you will be travelling in complete darkness.

Although the winter climate in Iceland is generally mild compared to other northern European countries, the temperature can drop below freezing at times. Please bring windproof and waterproof outerwear and plenty of warm layers. Please note that the programme is dependent upon weather and road conditions, and may be altered if conditions are not favourable. For information on weather conditions and daylight hours we recommend visiting our extensive Online Travel Guide

All bookings are charged in Icelandic Króna (ISK), the official currency of Iceland.
