Classic Reykjavik City Break

Reykjavik is perfect for a short stay. Vibrant with culture and city life, but still close to nature, you can experience it all in just a few days' vacation. And this fun-packed break is the ultimate way to get to know the city and its surroundings.

Your trip combines time to relax with guided tours that guarantee you won't miss a thing. Among these is our Reykjavik Grand Excursion - the perfect sightseeing introduction to all the city's main landmarks. By coach and foot, you will experience the variety Reykjavik has to offer, from downtown to the coast.

If you want to relax, no trip to Iceland is complete without a visit to the Blue Lagoon, where you will bathe in the incredible geothermal waters set in a stunning black lava field.

Finally, there is the classic Golden Circle tour, combining three of Iceland's most famous historical and natural treasures: Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot springs and Thingvellir National Park. Spectacular nature combined with over 1000 years of history.


There is no better way to experience a short break in Iceland.



The Blue lagoon will be closed from 24.-27.April 2017 due to renovations.

For all packages except Reykjavík - New Year's Celebration a supplement will be charged for the travel period 28.Dec 2017 - 2.Jan 2018.

Day 1: Arrival

Get Yourself Comfortable

If you arrive early, you might have time for a half-day or evening excursion, so study our tour selection and book ahead. Check in at your hotel in Reykjavik City and get comfortable for your three nights' stay in Iceland.


Day 2: Reykjavik Grand Excursion & Blue Lagoon Tour

Reykjavik City Sightseeing - Blue Lagoon

Today you'll be picked up a your hotel and taken on a comprehensive introduction to Reykjavik's past and present. During this tour you will experience Reykjavik's main attractions on foot and by bus.

The tour takes in all the key landmarks, such as The Pearl, Hallgrimskirkja church, the harbor and the famous 101 Reykjavik neighborhood. Reykjavik's unique proximity to nature - with the Salmon River Ellidaa, a thermal beach at Nautholsvik, green valleys and outdoor swimming pools - makes a city tour unforgettable.

The afternoon is open to your inspiration. We suggest a visit to one of the many museums or art galleries around the city. For instance, The National Museum of Iceland, Reykjavik Art Museum and the Settlement Exhibition.

Afterwards enjoy a relaxing dip in the warm waters of the famous Blue Lagoon. The lagoon is a unique wonder of nature with pleasantly warm mineral-rich geothermal water set in the middle of a black lava field. The high levels of silica and minerals give the lagoon its rich blue color.



Day 3: The Golden Circle

Gullfoss - Geysir - Thingvellir National Park

The Golden Circle refers to the 'Big Three' - Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot springs and Thingvellir National Park, which all are featured on this classic tour.

Begin the journey with a drive inland to Thingvellir National Park and experience one of the most outstanding landscapes in the country. The area is surrounded by mountains and encompasses a vast lava plain of green moss and wild flowers. In 2004, the site of Thingvellir was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Continue to Gullfoss, the 'Golden Waterfall', the most famous of the country's many waterfalls. Here the river Hvita drops 96 feet (30 meters) in two falls, creating an awesome spectacle.

Next is the Geysir geothermal area, with many bubbling hot springs and spouting geysers.

Return to Reykjavik and evening at leisure.

Day 4: Departure

Free day for leisure - departure

If your flight is in the afternoon, use your last moments to walk along the harbor seafront and breathe the fresh Atlantic breeze - or if you still need to relax, visit one of the city's swimming pools. There you can chat with the locals while relaxing in the geothermal mist.

Should you wish to extend your stay, we would be happy to book additional nights and tours for you. Please take a look at our wide selection of day tour options and book ahead.
