During the afternoon, things become quiet in the Reykjavik area as shops close and people go home to enjoy Christmas Eve with their families. This peaceful time can be a magical time to take a winter walk on the trails outside the hotel.
The beginning of Christmas officially starts at 18:00 (6:00pm) with church bells ringing, radio programmes and Christmas Eve church services. Tonight celebrate Christmas Eve with a dinner at the hotel's Satt Restaurant, famous for its Christmas cuisine.

Natural Wonders of Gullfoss, Geysir & Thingvellir - Traditional Icelandic Christmas buffet
Gleðileg Jól (Merry Christmas!) After breakfast at your hotel, your guide will meet you at 09:30. Today you will experience a trio of natural wonders along the Golden Circle route in South Iceland. Highlights include the breathtaking Gullfoss waterfall, which is often frozen mid-cascade during winter; the active Geysir geothermal area of bubbling mud pools, hot springs and spouting geysers; and Thingvellir National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site) Iceland's greatest historical site. Thingvellir is also of tremendous geological interest, as it is the visible location of the mid-Atlantic Ridge where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. Enjoy these areas on the quiet solitute of a Christmas day.
