City and country combined
Our holidays in Reykjavik operate year-round as Iceland has so much to offer at any time of year. Whether it’s the Midnight Sun in summer or the Northern Lights in winter, this island always delivers.
A city is not the best place in which to search for the Aurora though due to the light pollution. It is also a bit of a drive to some of Iceland’s greatest natural wonders, so Reykjavik tends to form the start or end of our holidays.
This is the case with our Exceptional Iceland itinerary which sees you take in delights such as Gulfoss waterfall, the geysers and Thingvellir National Park (known as the Golden Circle), the Glacier Lagoon and the black sands of the South Shore, before enjoying the city’s sights.
For those short on time, we strongly recommend our Auroras, Whales and the Blue Lagoon trip or its counterpart, Iceland’s Summer Highlights. There is time to explore the city but these trips also make use of the harbour by setting sail on a whale watching trip. The animals are abundant in the Icelandic waters and so, with a little luck, your experts will track them down for you.
For those who wish for more of an escorted option, you can take to the seas for a Small-Ship Exploration which starts and ends in the capital.
