Day 1 - Fly to Reykjavik

Day 2 - Reykjavik and the Blue Lagoon and the Northern Lights

In the morning we start our city tour of Reykjavik at the hotel's reception. You will see the worlds oldest parliament, the modern Hallgrimskirkja church and the picturesque lake in the centre of the city, which is inhabited with numerous waterfowl and modern suburbs. The modern architecture contrasts with the older parts of the city, which features colourful little houses and much more.

At 11.30hrs we take you to visit the Blue Lagoon and drive through the rough lava fields. Make sure you take your costume as you can relax in the warm geothermal waters, which are very natural and rich in minerals that are believed to have healing powers.

In the evening we have something special arranged for you - you will be picked up from the hotel to go in search of the Northern Lights by bus. The Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights are one of the natural wonders of the world - these waves of dancing colours across the clear dark skies are a sight not to be missed. Although we cannot guarantee that you will witness them, this excursion increases your chances by taking you to where there are clear skies.
