Day 1: Arrival in Iceland:

Highlights: Reykjavik Austurvollur Square Hallgrimskirkja Harpa Concert Hall Reykjavik City Hall Hofdi Perlan National Museum

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 or check our website for available tours.

Please note check-in for most hotels begins at 14:00 (2:00pm)

Day 2: The Golden Circle:

Highlights: Thingvellir National Park Gullfoss Geysir

This best-selling tour of Iceland’s most famous landmarks includes a visit to Fridheimar greenhouse. The classic Golden Circle with a sustainable twist!

The tour starts with a visit to Fridheimar greenhouse where we learn about the magical methods of managing pests by using biological controls. We also learn how to grow delicious tomatoes in a eco-friendly way with the aid of geothermal heat which Iceland has in abundance. After Fridheimar, we stop at Geysir geothermal area. The Strokkur geysir shoots a column of water up to 30 meters (98 ft.) into the air every 4-8 minutes in a thrilling display of nature’s forces. The visit continues with Gullfoss waterfall, created by the Hvítá river, which tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 m (105 ft.) deep. We also visit the historical and geological wonder that is Thingvellir National Park. Here the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimetres per year. Thingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Head back to Reykjavik in the late afternoon.
