Stay in Reykjavik and visit Iceland's main attractions in a Winter setting on some great day excursions. Combine a thrilling Super Jeep tour with a snowmobile excursion on a glacier, hunt for the dancing Northern Lights and bathe in the warm, aquamarine waters of the famous Blue Lagoon. Enjoy Iceland in winter to the full!


Day 1 Reykjavik Arrival and Blue Lagoon

Upon arrival at Keflavik Airport, board the coach for the short transfer to the Blue Lagoon. The transfer bus leaves the airport at regular intervals. At the Lagoon, there are luggage lockers (a small fees applies for large bags) and change rooms, plus a café, restaurant, bar and boutique. Admire the warm, aquamarine, mineral rich waters, enjoy the other facilities, and bathe if you wish - it is said to be a very good way to beat jet lag! (If your flight arrival time does not allow you to enjoy the Blue Lagoon today, you may be able to stop there on your way back to the airport for your departure flight). Afterwards take the coach transfer on to Reykjavik city - there are regular departures - and check in at your hotel. The city centre is a small area characterised by eclectic and colourful houses, good shopping, dining and drinking. Reykjavik has recently established itself as a haven for food lovers, with numerous restaurants taking advantage of the abundance of local seafood, meat and game. Three nights in Reykjavik.

Day 2 Reykjavik: Super Jeep Excursion to the Golden Circle and Snowmobiling

Discover three of the most outstanding attractions in South of Iceland on a fully guided 4WD super jeep excursion. A super jeep is a modified and specially equipped 4WD vehicle with very large tyres, designed to be driven in demanding Icelandic terrains. The first stop is at Thingvellir National Park, then onwards to the Gullfoss waterfall and the Geysir geothermal area. The highlight of the day is a one hour snowmobile adventure in the snowy highlands (2 persons share the driving of each snowmobile). 

Day 3 Reykjavik: Day at Leisure and Evening Northern Lights Hunt

Day at leisure for relaxation or shopping. Reykjavik has many wonderful museums including the National Museum displaying artefacts from the first settlement to the modern age, giving an excellent overview of Iceland's history and culture, the Reykjavik 871+2 Settlement Museum, an archaeological museum based around a 10th century Viking longhouse unearthed in 2001, the Reykjavik Art Museum and the National Gallery. This evening join a coach tour taking you out of the city's bright lights, to hunt for the natural wonder of the Northern Lights. These are often seen dancing around in fantastic colours across the Arctic skies!
