Itinerary:

Day 1  : Arrival - Explore Reykjavik city

Approximate distance: ca 64 km / 28 miles

Arrival in Keflavik Airport, pick-up your car and find your way to the elegant Radisson Blu Saga Hotel in Reykjavik city centre.
Spend the afternoon exploring the city center of Reykjavik. Before having dinner, be sure to stop at the hotel bar to enjoy a welcome Northern lights cocktail.
Overnight at Radisson Blu Saga Hotel.

Day 2  : Reykjanes Peninsula and the Blue Lagoon

Approximate distance: ca 158 km / 98 miles

Head to the Reykjanes peninsula, where geothermal heat and lava fields dominate the nature. Stop at the world famous Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa, where you can enjoy a relaxing swim in its naturally heated waters!
From the Blue Lagoon you can then continue your drive towards the Golden Circle area crossing the small village of Hveragerdi, famous for its green-house cultivations.
At the end of the day reach Grimsborgir luxury apartments, where you'll stay overnight. We highly recommend dinner at the Grimsborgir renowned a la carte restaurant.
Enjoy a walk in the area in the evening. Expect a starry sky and you are even likely to see the Northern Lights since you are in a remote area - far away from any city lights!
Overnight at Grimsborgir apartments.

Included:
Experience Comfort package at the Blue Lagoon - including visitor pass, entrance, use of towel, 1st drink of your choice, and a skin care trial pack.

Day 3  : The Golden Circle

Approximate distance: ca 200 km / 124 miles

After breakfast at Grimsborgir, you can explore the famous Golden Circle route, before heading back to Reykjavik in the afternoon. For a Classic Golden Circle tour you should visitThingvellir National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Gullfoss waterfall and the famous Geysir Geothermal area where hot springs and geysers are in abundance.

The Icelandic parliament was established at Thingvellir in the year 930, making Thingvellir the site where the oldest existing parliament in the world was formed. As well as being a historic place in Iceland, it is also a natural wonder because of its location directly ON TOP of a tectonic rift. Here you can see clearly how the continental plates of America and Europe have drifted apart. Huge canyons are the most clear manifestation of that, one of which ("Peningagjá canyon") is believed to be a wishing well.

From Thingvellir continue to the geothermal area around the Geysir hot spring and Gullfoss waterfall ("the Golden waterfall"). These attractions are two of the most popular ones in Iceland - and for a reason! Everybody is blown away by the natural power that is reflected in the spouting geysers and huge waterfalls.

After this day of classic sightseeing you will drive back to Reykjavik to check-in once more atRadisson Blu Saga Hotel, where you'll spend the third night.

Day 4  : Departure

Depending on your departure time, the use of the last day in Iceland is entirely up to you. If you liked the Blue lagoon, it's very convenient to "stop by" again at the lagoon on the way to the airport, as it's only a 15 minute drive away*

Extra nights: If you are interested in prolonging your stay in Iceland, we would be glad to assist you in booking additional nights and/or activities at a special price, just contact us.
