Day 1: Arrival in Iceland
Please note: If you have added extra nights in Reykjavik before your tour, the guide will meet your group for the start of the tour on Day 1 according to the standard “South Coast, Golden Circle, Snaefellsnes and Northern Lights” itinerary.
Upon arrival, head through passport control, collect your bags and go through customs to the Arrival Hall. Airport transfer is not included, but we are happy to help you arrange shared or private transfers.
Once in Reykjavik, check into your hotel. If you arrive early in the day, you might want to explore Reykjavik’s old town area, the 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 afternoon 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 wonderful way to get better acquainted with Iceland’s capital.
Tonight, there will be an information meeting (around 18:00/6:00pm) for you to meet your guide and other tour members. You will also learn more about your tour itinerary.
Overnight in Reykjavik.
Please note that hotels in Iceland start check-in around 14:00 (2:00pm), and early check-in is not guaranteed. Most hotels will be happy to store your luggage if you are not able to check in early.
