Itinerary

 Reykjavik 

 Reykjavik. Welcome to Iceland and the start of your Northern Lights adventure! Your transfer to your accommodation is by Flybus shuttle. Your travel documents include a separate voucher for the FLYBUS airport shuttle, located outside the arrival hall in front of the main airport exit. If you need assistance, contact the Flybus representative at their sales counter in the arrival hall. The transfer takes about 45 minutes to BSI bus station in Reykjavík. There you might either continue with the same bus or be transferred to a smaller coach to your accommodation in Reykjavík (see information on your separate voucher), according to instructions of the driver. For the checkin at your accommodation in Reykjavík see separate voucher. 

 Blue Lagoon 

 Reykjavik - Reykjanes Peninsula - Blue Lagoon - Hella. Departing our Guesthouse this morning (see tour voucher for exact time). We meet our tour guide and fellow travel companions for the next three days. We start with a city tour of Reykjavik where we'll see some highlights of Iceland’s quiet capital. Next we head out to the Reykjanes peninsula famous for hot springs, picturesque mountains, bird cliffs, light houses and quaint fishing villages. Later on we get to relax in the warm blue waters of the famous Blue Lagoon. This evening, we hear all about the Northern Lights and once darkness falls we head out in the garden and wait for this beautiful natural phenomena to appear. Important: Please carry your swimwear and toiletries for the Blue Lagoon in your hand luggage to avoid having to take your main luggage into the Blue Lagoon facilities. There is an extra charge for luggage storage at the Blue Lagoon. The towel is included in the entrance fee and tour package. 

 Glaciers & Waterfalls 

 Hella - Eyjafjallajokull - Skogafoss - Black Lava Beach - Hella. Today we head along the south coast and reach the area near the active volcano that is beneath the Eyjafjallajökull glacier. We travel on to the high but narrow Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which plunges from the mountain and then visit the Skógar folk museums, which contains an outstanding collection of farm and domestic artefacts from Iceland's past and several turf-built houses. Nearby is one of the most impressive waterfalls in the country; the 60-meter high Skógafoss waterfall. We continue to the seaside and stroll on the black lava beach to see the amazing bird cliffs at Reynisfjara near Vík.  In the evening we celebrate New Year the Icelandic way. Before dinner, we join a guided bus tour to visit the bonfires in the villages of Hvolsvöllur and Hella. The traditional Brenna bonfires of New Year's Eve had their origins in the Middle Ages when people built bonfires to burn the old things they no longer needed. In Iceland, there are bonfires all around the country where inhabitants gather, shoot off fireworks, sing and dance as they wait for the New Year to come in. Your festive 4-course dinner starts around 20:30 and is served at Árhús Restaurant on the river banks in Hella, which is a small village in South Iceland. Around 23:30 one of the local rescue team members joins our group and lights our own small fireworks. Afterwards, we walk through the village and celebrate New Years's with a bang when at midnight the sky opens with thousands of fireworks set off in the village by the local inhabitants. This is an experience of a lifetime; you will never forget. Drink a toast of sparkling wine as you enjoy a real special Icelandic New  Year's celebration. (Note that guests at Stracta Hotel join all festivities at Árhús Restaurant). If the night is clear, you might be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the heavens in dramatic shapes, colors, patterns and sizes. 

Golden Circle 

 Hella - Golden Circle - Reykjavik. This morning we visit a geothermal greenhouse seeing steam from the Geysir geothermal fields as you arrive. There is a variety of hot springs and bubbling pools. The original geyser is now dormant but has been replaced by Strokkur the Churn which erupts at 5-10 minute intervals. Continuing on to Gullfoss the golden falls, a double waterfall that tumbles 34 meters into the Hvítá River. Next we travel inland to Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site before returning to Reykjavík for one night. This evening we enjoy a culinary treat at a restaurant located in Reykjavík. Please order the FLYBUS for the departure day with the receptionist at your hotel according to your flight schedule, the evening prior to departure. Write down the departure/ pick up time. The FLYBUS office is open 24 hours. If you have questions, ask your tour guide for assistance. 

 Reykjavik 

 Today our Northern Lights Icelandic experience comes to an end with included FlyBus transfer to Keflavik Airport.
