  • Day 1:  Reykjavik City Tour & Aurora Search

    On arrival at Keflavik Airport, you’ll be met by a private driver and taken to your accommodation in Reykjavik. After settling in, you‘ll get an overview of this vibrant city with a leisurely walking tour, during which your guide will take you to some of the capital's most unusual and original places. This is a great opportunity to experience what makes Reykjavik tick.

    The grand finale this evening is an exciting private northern lights tour in a super-jeep. Your expert guide will take you into the countryside far from the city lights in search of the best locations to view auroras. If the sky is clear and conditions are right, this is an incredible experience.*

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

The first stop is Þingvellir National Park, an area of unique geology and the site of Iceland’s ancient assembly grounds. Next is the Haukadalur geothermal area, home of Geysir—the original geyser—and the more active Strokkur, which spouts a stream of boiling water up into the air every few minutes.
