  • Day 4: GOLDEN CIRCLE IN THE TRANQUILITY OF WINTER

    Today's journey brings you up close and personal with some of Iceland’s most popular south Iceland attractions along the classic Golden Circle route. 

    Start with a visit to the fascinating Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If it‘s snowy you will see its charming winter look! Here, you can walk on a path in the rift valley between the North American and Eurasion tectonic plates and learn about the first site of Iceland's democracy.

    Next on the route is the Haukadalur geothermal area, where you can see Geysir – the original “geyser” – and its more active neighbour Strokkur, which spouts water and steam metres into the air every few minutes. This natural sight is especially lovely in a winter setting.

Tour Information

We recommend that all our travellers read through the following information about what our luxury tours include, how we can customise them to your ideas of the best vacation, what to expect from your visit, types of hotels and rooms, along with useful information about the activities that are included.

ABOUT OUR LUXURY TOURS
Let us help you make this the tour of your dreams, according to your unique needs and interests. This itinerary is an example of what we offer luxury clients, but packages can be customised with extra nights, optional activities, and other changes to the itinerary. Contact us for details. All accommodation and planned activities (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor.

KEFLAVIK VIP AIRPORT TRANSFERS
You will be picked up at Keflavik International Airport for a private VIP transfer, by a driver other than the guide you will be travelling with on the tour. A driver will greet you at the airport, holding a sign with your name. You will be transported directly to your hotel.

ACCOMMODATION
This itinerary is based on specific accommodations. Please note that if they are not available upon booking, we will inform you what options are available and book a similar hotel. We would be happy to upgrade your stay to larger rooms or suites and if you have specific hotels in mind, feel free to contact us about it and we would be happy to reserve that for you (prices can change due to that).

PRIVATE TOURS
Your driver-guide will start the day usually early, around 9:00, or later if you prefer, and the duration of each day’s agenda is between 8-9 hours with many stops and sights along the way. If you have a preference for the agenda, kindly let your guide know and they will see if the itinerary can be adjusted. The time spent at each spot will be based on your interests, but the guide will of course go by the original itinerary and have the local expertise on what they recommend doing each day.

THE RETREAT AT THE BLUE LAGOON
The Retreat at the Blue Lagoon offers entry to the Retreat Spa and the Blue Lagoon. Guests will have access to the Blue Lagoon Ritual, as well as skin care amenities and the facilities of the original Blue Lagoon. The hallmark of the luxury experience, The Ritual, is based on the healing powers of the Blue Lagoon’s three natural wonders: silica, algae, and minerals. In a spacious sanctuary of three interconnected chambers, you cover your body with Icelandic geothermal seawater.

Please note that we cannot guarantee the accommodation at the Blue Lagoon Retreat to be available when you book so we might need to adjust your itinerary due to limited availability at the Retreat or offer you a different option if it is fully booked for your travel dates.

NORTHERN LIGHTS AND WINTER TRAVEL
Please note that sightseeing is dependent on weather and road conditions and might need to be altered if conditions are not favourable. The safety of our travellers comes first and the driver will not take chances. Rest assured that the guide will, of course, make stops at scenic sites, regardless of the road taken.
