Day 1  : WELCOME TO ICELAND

Arrival - Free day in Reykjavik - Hunt for the Northern Lights

This day is open for your own activities. A visit to the Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa, located 15 minutes from Keflavik International Airport, is a wonderful way to enjoy your arrival or departure day, depending on your flight schedule.

In the evening, hunt for the Northern Lights. Also known as Aurora Borealis, the lights are a spectacular natural phenomenon, often seen dancing around in fantastic colours across the Icelandic night sky. Please note this tour is weather dependent, and sightings are not guaranteed. If conditions are unfavorable for Northern Lights viewing, your group will visit the Northern Lights Centre in Reykjavik.

Day 2  : GOLDEN CIRCLE TOUR

Natural Wonders of Gullfoss, Geysir & Thingvellir - Traditional Icelandic Christmas buffet

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.
