  • New Year’s Festival – 5 Days
  • (#2915)

Join the fun & fireworks on our New Year’s Festival tour. New Year’s Eve in Iceland certainly goes with a bang! The sky at midnight lights up with fireworks as the Icelanders enjoy their celebration. Perlan, or the Pearl, has been one of Reykjavík’s most distinctive landmarks since opening in 1991. The top floor restaurant gives panoramic 360° views of Reykjavík, perfect for the New Year’s fireworks show!

This tour package includes 4 nights in Reykjavik and several guided excursions. First, the tour guide shows the highlights of Iceland’s exciting capital city, Reykjavík. Travel the Golden Circle route. Visit Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See Gullfoss, a double waterfall that tumbles 32 meters into the Hvítá River and attracts tourists in summer and winter. Exploring the hot springs at Geysir is like watching a geography lesson in real: natural springs bubble away in the ground until the pressure becomes too high and explodes spectacularly. Geysir and Strokkur are the two biggest of the geysers there. While Geysir no longer is active, Strokkur still spouts every 5 to 10 minutes to the delight of visitors. Start the new year with an exploration of the Reykjanes Peninsula and a soak in the warm, mineral-rich waters of the Blue Lagoon.

The New Year’s Gala Dinner is at the exclusive Perlan Restaurant, which offers panoramic 360 degree views of Reykjavik.

Enjoy a guided Reykjavík City Tour and explore the highlights of Iceland’s exciting capital. We see the charming city center, the Parliament, the harbor and Hallgrímskirkja church, whose steeple is a landmark. We pass the Harpa concert hall and visit the Pearl, a remarkable building and viewpoint. The city tour ends around noon.

The afternoon is free at leisure, to explore Iceland’s capital on your own or do a bit of shopping. You might consider visiting museums, galleries, and exhibitions, such as the fantastic Whales of Iceland exhibition, consisting of 23 man-made life-size models of various whale species found in Icelandic waters. At the Perlan Museum, you can walk through a unique indoor ice cave which is a replica of an ice tunnel dug straight through a glacier.

Meal: Breakfast

By a scenic route, we reach Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site. We stroll around the country’s most sacred site, home of the oldest existing national parliament in the world, the Alþingi, and major events in the history of Iceland. Thingvellir is a place of fascinating natural beauty, a spectacular geological vista, set on a vast plain flanked by large fissures, right by Iceland’s largest lake, Thingvallavatn. The Mid-Atlantic rift is clearly visible; a rift that is forming as Iceland is being pulled apart by tectonic forces. Next, we drive to the mighty waterfall of Gullfoss – the Golden falls – perhaps the most beautiful in the country. Explore the active geothermal area of Haukadalur which contains the geyser Strokkur erupting hot water and steam to an elevation of 25 metres (82 ft) every 5-7 minutes. We pass the greenhouse town of Hveragerði and continue over the mountain pass Hellisheiði, an area with large lava fields and steaming valleys. Passing the geothermal power station Hellisheiðarvirkjun we learn how Icelanders use geothermal energy to produce electricity and hot water for house heating. The tour ends in Reykjavik around 16:00.

At 18:00 you will be transferred from your hotel to Perlan where you will be greeted with a welcome drink and the option to see Áróra, the Northern Lights Planetarium show. Around 19:30, the festive 4-course dinner will start with wine pairing. Later during the evening, there will be a music performance and a DJ who will keep up the party throughout the evening. Guests have exclusive access to the observation deck that has 360° view over Reykjavík’s capital area. A transfer from Perlan will leave every 30 minutes from 00:30 am.

Overnight location: Grand Hotel Reykjavik. Breakfast, lunch & New Year festive dinner included.

Meal: Breakfast, lunch and Dinner

We leave Reykjavik at 10:00 and explore the Reykjanes peninsula with its dramatic seashores, fascinating geology, moonscapes, lava fields and fishing villages. We make a short stop at Bessastaðir, the residence of the President of Iceland.

The guided tour continues to the Bridge over the continents and the lighthouse at the edge of the Reykjanes peninsula. We reach the Blue Lagoon in the afternoon, an oasis in the lava that owes its existence to a nearby geothermal power plant. Enjoy lunch (included) and a refreshing bath or a swim in the pleasantly warm mineral-rich water, reputed for its healing properties. Return to Reykjavik around 18:00.
