Upon landing in Iceland, there is only the mysterious lava plain of the Reykjanes Peninsula standing between you and the buzz from the energetic capital city Reykjavik. The ride across the barren lava takes little less than an hour and is thankfully devoid of any demons, making the start of your journey as safe as possible (airport transfer not included in package price).
The first settler of Iceland built his farm on the peninsula where Reykjavik stands today and the city derives its name after the columns of steam that rose from the hot springs in the area (Reykjavik means “smoky bay”).
Only a few minutes drive away from your modern Reykjavik hotel, the city centre awaits with abundance of restaurants, cafés, clubs, and cultural events. A Northern Lights hunt is a recommended optional activity during winter (not included), whether by boat, bus, or jeep.
