Reykjavik (Arrival)

Welcome to Iceland! On arrival at the airport, individual transfer by Flybus shuttle from Keflavik airport to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

Upon check in hotel, at own leisure.

Wondering what to do in Reykjavik?
Reykjavík has plenty to offer in entertainment for all ages. Its closeness to nature makes it an ideal destination for outdoor activities. Iceland's 1000 years of history and culture can be explored in the city's many museums. The Reykjavík music and nightlife is buzzing as always. And the local pools might spark an interesting conversation.

Transfer by Flybus Airport shuttle. Pick-up from designated pick-up zone and location to be advised once booking has been made.

Reykjavik City Sights - Borgarfjordur Saga Valley - Borgarnes

At 09:00 meet your tour guide who shows the group the highlights of Iceland’s exciting capital.
Then we head west. Borgarfjörður is known as the Saga Valley because of its many important historical events. We get a chance to climb the Grábrók volcano crater and visit Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring. Hraunfossar is a series of waterfalls pouring from beneath a wide lava field.
We spend two nights in Barnafoss, West Iceland – the Children’s falls, is nearby with its own tragic tale.
The afternoon includes a lecture about Northern Lights. After dinner, we step into the hotel garden in search of the Northern Lights followed by a hot cup of chocolate or tea.

NOTE: The Northern Lights are visible in the northern sky from September through April when the sky is clear and free of clouds. The tour is dependent on weather and therefore sightings are not guaranteed. Like many natural wonders. It is an ephemeral spectacle - the Northern Lights may be visible, they may appear for a bit and then be gone. Northern Lights are a winter event, you need to be prepared to wait outside while looking for them. It is best to dress very warmly, in layer, with good footwear, gloves, hats and whatever else makes you comfortable while you await this truly outstanding event.

Borgarnes - Snæfellsnes Peninsula & Fjord Cruise - Borgarnes

The Snæfellsnes Peninsula, “the peninsula of the snowy mountain“, just out from Iceland’s west coast, like a long arm with a clenched fist at its tip, and is in many ways a microcosm of the whole island. A rugged mountain chain runs its length.

We travel to the charming fishing town of Stykkishólmur for a cruise in the Breiðafjörður fjord.

After a light lunch a uniquely Icelandic “treat“ awaits us at Bjarnarhöfn, where they make Hákarl – the fermented shark. Depending on road and weather conditions, we visit the fishing village of Grundarfjörður, a place with an impressive coastline and mountains, lakes and waterfalls behind the village. Jutting out into the bay rises one of the most photographed mountains in Iceland, Mt. Kirkjufell.

On the way back to Borgarnes the guide gives you some practical tips on how to photograph the Auroras as part of the Northern Lights Academy program. Naturally, once darkness falls, we are out in the hotel garden to chase the Northern Lights and to soak in the hotel’s outdoor hot tubs.

NOTE: New Program for Winter Sep 2020 - Apr 2021: No light lunch and Breiðafjörður Cruise from Grundarfjorour.

Today’s program is all about glaciers, ice and icebergs.

In the afternoon we visit the tiny turf church at Hof and spend time at Europe’s largest national park, which has Iceland’s highest mountains, an alpine environment, and Europe’s largest glacier.

In the evening enjoy a film presentation about the Northern Lights as part of the Northern Lights Academy program. Be careful not to go to bed too soon in this remote and quiet location, or you may miss out one more chance of seeing the Northern Ligghts shimmering and dancing across the night sky.

Optional : Ice Cave Tour offered between November 15th and March 15th
The tour takes about 2,5 hours in total – nearly 30-minute drive by 4×4 vehicle from the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and 5-15 minutes hike (one-way). You spend about one hour inside the ice cave. You need good hiking boots, warm clothing that keeps you dry from the dripping water in the ice cave. Minimum age is 10 years old. The ice cave tour can only be booked on day 2 of Northern Lights Exploration tour. You will have to fill in and sign an order form, once done a cancellation is not possible. Ice cave bookings have to be finalised with the guide by dinner time on day 2 of the tour. Bookings afterwards cannot be accommodated due to limited space. The price is about EUR 210 per person; subject to change. Payment is due with the ice cave tour operator on day 6 in Icelandic Krona – cash only! The ice cave explorers meet their local guide at the glacier lagoon at 14:00 and will be brought back to the hotel after the ice cave tour, while the rest of the group continues the official tour program. The ice cave explorers will miss out on some of the official tour programs, as there is no time for everything, but the stop and visit at the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon are included for all group members.
