Reykjavik

A taste of Iceland distilled into one perfect break.

 

Take a deep breath of clean, fresh air in the land of fire and ice and discover the picture postcard city of Reykjavik. With a vibrant culture and surrounded by stunning scenery, it’s also a starting point for venturing into the rugged wilderness of mountains, volcanoes, lava fields, hot springs, waterfalls and the spectacular geysers of Iceland. These are vast open spaces in a landscape that simply pulses with energy under your feet.

 

We’ll spend the first morning whale and dolphin watching off the coast of Reykjavik and after lunch a little city sightseeing. Not to be missed is the Blue Lagoon, where you can let your cares drift away in a warm, natural geothermal pool just a short distance from the city. We’ll have a full day exploring the Golden Circle with a local guide where we will visit Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Great Atlantic rift is clearly visible here. At the Geysir geothermal area exploding geyers and hot springs await; we’ll also be able to view the impressive Gulfoss waterfall. Our last day in Reykjavik will be at leisure.

 

Our May departure will also visit the lava fields and geothermal activity of the Reykjanes Peninsula. In September we include an evening Northern Lights excursion. This is weather dependent and it is not guaranteed that the ‘lights’ will be out for us but the local guide will take us to the best location possible.
