During your stay a number of excursions are included such as the Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot springs,  Reykjavik city tour, the Blue Lagoon & Reykjanes peninsula. The New Year's Gala Dinner is enjoyed at the exclusive revolving Perlan Restaurant, which is situated above geothermal hot water tanks and offers some of the best views of Reykjavik. 

Day 1  : WELCOME TO ICELAND

Welcome, your New Year’s Iceland holidays begin today! Upon arrival in Iceland, take the Flybus transfer from Keflavik International Airport to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

At 9:00am take the Guided Reykjavik City Tour and learn about the highlights of the Icelandic history and culture. We will  stop at Hallgrímskirkja church, Perlan with its fabulous viewing deck, Höfði house where Reagan and Gorbachev met in 1986 to begin the process of ending the Cold War and Harpa concert hall. The guide will provide you with all the essential information about Reykjavík and its natural environment. The rest of the day is free to rest and explore the city.
At 9:00PM we will take you on Northern Lights Mystery Tour - hunt for the Northern Lights away from the center of Reykjavík to darker areas. Witness one of nature’s most spectacular displays and watch their swirling wild dance across the night sky in fantastic shapes and colors. Overnight in Reykjavik.

 

Day 2  : GOLDEN CIRCLE & FONTANA GEOTHERMAL BATHS

After breakfast, at 10:30am we will take you on the Golden Circle tour, visiting Þingvellir National Park. After Þingvellir National Park we will visit the natural geothermal baths at Laugarvatn Fontana Spa, a great way to unwind and revitalise before continuing to Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir geothermal area. For a long time, the locals of Laugarvatn have been enjoying the healing powers of natural steam from a geothermal field at the edge of the lake. Built over this geothermal area, the Laugarvatn Fontana wellness centre features geothermal steam rooms, hot pools and outdoor mineral baths and a fantastic view over the lake. At Laugarvatn Fontana centre you will find Fontana café that offers a nice selection of healthy and locally produced delicacies and refreshments. Having lunch there is a great idea for those who just want to enjoy the facilities without going to the baths. Overnight in Reykjavik (B)

Day 3  : BONFIRE AND FIREWORKS

Free day to explore on your own and relax on the last day of the year.  

We will pick you up at your hotel at 19:00 (7:00pm) for New Year's fireworks and bonfire. The Icelandic New Year's Eve is considered by many one of the most exciting New Year's celebrations in the world. Thousands of people attend community bonfires scattered throughout the different neighborhoods in Reykjavík. At midnight the atmosphere becomes highly intense due to the amazing fireworks that lit up the skies of Iceland. We offer a special tour where you will experience this celebration first-hand with the locals.  We will have light refreshments and stop at a viewpoint to watch the fireworks and toast with a glass of sparkling wine while thousands of people all over the city are shooting up tons of fireworks, resulting in one of the world's most spectacular sights one can imagine. Overnight in Reykjavik (B)

Day 4  : SOUTH COAST OF ICELAND

After breakfast at 11:00am, experience the beautiful landscape of Iceland's South Coast with its magical waterfalls, rough black sand beaches, small seaside villages and raw nature. Walk up to the roots of glacier Sólheimajökull and feel the temperature drop the closer you get. On this tour, you will explore many of Iceland’s most awe-inspiring natural landmarks, including the iconic Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls and Reynisfjara volcanic beach to name a few. Travelling across the lush farmlands that cut between the coast and the mountain ranges and glaciers of the interior highlands you will enjoy breathtaking panoramic views, visit the main natural attractions and learn about the fascinating history of the region. Overnight in Reykjavik (B)

Day 5  : BLUE LAGOON & DEPARTURE

Your tour of Iceland ends here. We hope you've enjoyed your stay!
Today we will pick you up at your hotel and take you to the Blue Lagoon, and from there to Keflavik International Airport. (B)

Notes:

There are different departures from Reykjavík to the Blue Lagoon starting at 07:30, 08:30, 09:30, every hour. The driving time to Keflavik is around 50 minutes.
We offer flexible departures from the Lagoon to the airport at 12:00, 14:00, 15:00 and 22:00*. Driving time to the airport is about 20 minutes. Most airlines require that you arrive at the Airport at least 2 hours before departure, so please choose your departure from the Blue Lagoon with that in mind. Please tell the bus driver on your way to the Blue Lagoon which departure you plan to take when leaving the Blue Lagoon.
