Day 1: Arrival in Iceland:
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 only takes about 45 – 60 minutes. Airport transfer is not included in the package but we are happy to assist you with arranging either private or regular airport transfers upon request. If your flight schedule allows, it is also possible to change the Blue Lagoon transfer (included in the package) to an Arrival via Blue Lagoon or Departure via Blue Lagoon.
If you have arrived early today, you have a treat waiting for you! Though Reykjavik may be small, it is a vibrant city full of culture and activities. A great way to shake off the jet lag is a swim in one of the city’s outdoor geothermal swimming pools. Swimming areas have lap pools, hot tubs of various temperatures and often a steam bath. This is a great way to enjoy daily life in Iceland.
You can also take a stroll down main streets Laugavegur and Skolavordustigur, enjoy the city view from the top of the tower of Hallgrimskirkja church or check out the downtown harbor village. Reykjavik also offers a good selection of galleries and museums within the downtown area.
In the evening, enjoy a visit to one of Reykjavik’s modern restaurants. We will supply you with our list of favorite restaurants.
Interested in checking out our beer/pub culture or seeing a history/comedy show in the evening? Then add on the Reykjavik Beer Tour or the Icelandic Sagas: Greates Hits show.
