 Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive Reykjavik

Arrive in Reykjavik and transfer to your hotel by shuttle bus.

After  check  in  at  your  hotel,  proceed  to  Blue  Lagoon  by  Blue  Lagoon  Express.

The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most popular attractions, a natural geothermal pool in the middle of a large and dramatic lava field and an oasis that owes its existence to a nearby geothermal power plant, looming large over the aqua tinted waters. Stop for 1 ½ hour for a refreshing bathe or a swim in the inviting, rejuvenating and pleasantly warm mineral-rich water (37°C-39°C/98-102°F), reputed for its healing properties. An indoor pool and geothermal sauna are also on the site. Bathing in this surreal environment is a unique experience no one should miss.

Day 4 Reykjavik

Breakfast at the hotel.

Today is a day full of adventure! First, it is time for the Horseback riding and Lava Tour. The trip takes 3 hours including transfers and about 1,5 to 2 hours riding included stops from the Riding Centre into the lava fields surrounding Mt. Helgafell volcano to the old Kaldársel sheep corral or to Lake Hvaleyrarvatn through lava fields and across beautiful hillsides. All riding is on excellent riding paths

In the evening it is time for the Northern Lights Hunt!

The Northern lights also known as the Aurora Borealis are a spectacular natural phenomenon, often seen dancing around in fantastic colors across the Icelandic Arctic sky. The Northern lights are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. That creates this wonderful light effect, known as the Aurora Borealis. This tour is dependent on weather and sightings are not guaranteed. If you don’t see any lights on your tour you are welcome on another Northern Lights tour free of charge. Refreshments not included.
