This morning’s included, guided city tour will introduce Reykjavik and its surroundings. Take in city views from extraordinary landmarks such as the Presidential Residence and the towering Hallgrim’s Church.
In the afternoon, explore Reykjavik under your own steam, or join an optional excursion to the world-famous, mineral-laden Blue Lagoon outdoor spa. No visit to Iceland is complete without a dip in these bubbling geothermal pools, set in the strange lunar-like landscape of a volcanic lava field.

This evening, enjoy the highlight of your tour – an included trip out of the city in search of the Northern Lights, the enchanting Aurora Borealis, that flicker across Iceland’s winter skies. Should you be lucky enough to view them, they are an unforgettable sight.
