Detailed Itinerary

On arrival at Keflavik airport transfer by the airport shuttle bus (not guided) to your hotel in the center of Reykjavik. The rest of the day is at your leisure to explore the Icelandic capital. Accommodation in 4* hotel in Reykjavik city centre (2 nights)

Breakfast at the hotel and enjoy the rest of your day in Iceland’s capital city. We recommend a 2,5 hours tour of the most significant places of Reykjavik and the surrounding cities. Visit the presidential residence at Bessastaðir as well as Hafnarfjörður, the town where “hidden people” and humans live together in harmony. You will also see old fishing harbours and enjoy the magnificent view from Perlan. This sightseeing tour is at your own cost. We also recommend the blue lagoon, where you can relax in a natural geothermal pool in the middle of a large and dramatic lava field. In the evening a Northern light excursion is a natural choice. All recommendations detailed at own cost.

Breakfast at your hotel. It is time to say goodbye to city life for now and go back to nature. You will be picked up from your hotel and transferred (approximately 90 minutes) to Hotel Rangá. In the evening the chances to see the Northern lights are great! All lights are turned off around the hotel and therefore there is no light pollution. You can just step outside and see the Northern Lights if the weather forecast allows. In addition the hotel offers an Aurora alarm for all guests. Dinner and accommodation at Hotel Rangá (3 nights)

Breakfast at your hotel and set of for an adventure tour to Þórsmörk, valley by a monstrous super jeep. Þórsmörk, valley of the Thunder God Thor, sits amongst three sparkling ice caps, Mýrdalsjökull, Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjallajökull. Sights include Gígjökull where powerful glacial floods escaped during the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption. Your local guide will tell you about this eruption, including stories only
locals know about. Along the way, short hikes are always an option, to truly feel the pull and tug of the landscape. Evening at leisure at the hotel and be ready for the northern lights!

Breakfast at your hotel and the rest of the day is yours to enjoy stunning Hotel Rangá. Go for a walk in the surroundings or make use of the outdoor hot tub and relax here with a drink watching the peaceful nature or the sparkling northern lights in the evening. The hotel offers massages, if you need to relax just a bit more before returning to your hectic everyday life
