Keep in mind that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon and therefore sightings cannot be guaranteed even if the tour is operated.
Please note that the best hotels can fill up quickly, especially in busy travel seasons, so we recommend booking well in advance.
The average temperate in Reykjavik during January is around -0.6 C (31 F) so we strongly urge bringing warm clothes and plenty of layers, especially for fireworks or 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.
For Snowmobile & ATV Tours:
Please note that a valid driver’s license must be presented before driving snowmobiles and/or ATV´s (Quad Bikes).
Please be advised that daylight is limited in Iceland during the winter months, with about 4-5 hours of daylight during the holidays, from December to January. Winter in Iceland is considered to be from October to April.
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.
