Day 1: Arrival in Iceland :
Upon arrival, head through passport control, collect your bags and go through customs to the Arrival Hall. The FlyBus transfer shuttle is waiting outside the arrival hall. Please show your confirmation information to the attendant on board and let him or her know the hotel you are using in Reykjavík. Important: The FlyBus is a shared bus transfer. You will not be met directly in the airport by a driver.
Once in Reykjavik, check into your hotel. If you arrive early in the day, you might want to explore Reykjavik’s old town area, location of many museums and galleries. You might also enjoy visiting one of the city’s outdoor geothermal swimming pools where you can shake off your jetlag. In the after-noon you could take one of our day tours, such as whale watching or horseback riding, both bringing you close to Iceland’s nature and landscape.
Dinner is on your own. Reykjavik offers a multitude of restaurants and/or coffee-houses, making dinner a great way to get better acquainted with Iceland’s capital.
This evening at 18:00 (6:00pm) there will be an information meeting at Hotel Midgardur (within easy walking distance of Fosshotel Lind). Your locally-based guide will go through the week’s itinerary and suggestions of things you can do in Reykjavik during your free time. The guide will also update on cultural events taking place in Reykjavik while you are in Iceland to help you plan what you might do on your evenings in town.
Enjoy a welcome drink and the opportunity to get to know your travel companions.
