This action-packed Iceland adventure pairs Reykjavik’s city energy with some of the country's most prominent natural wonders

» 4 day tailor-made city-break

» Accommodation: Superior A higher standard of accommodation with a better range and quality of facilities, often in a good location (typically 4 stars)

» Price from: £955

So much more than just a city break, this stay in Iceland's capital, Reykjavik, includes two unforgettable excursions. The first, a Superjeep tour at night, sees you chase the Northern Lights in locations far off the beaten track. Then, after free days to tailor-make your own winter adventure, you’ll unwind in style with a soak in the mineral-rich waters of the world-famous Blue Lagoon.

Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » UK/Reykjavik

    Flying out to Reykjavik’s airport, an included transfer will see you to your central accommodation, delightfully Scandi chic in its pinewood flooring. What’s more, housed in 18th-century buildings on one of the city’s oldest streets, it’s perfectly positioned to explore. After taking in Reykjavik’s colourful historic core, be sure to turn your attention to its innovative present. The Icelandic capital’s creative scene plays out over lively bars, dining experiences and a full suite of modernist architecture. The spectacularly staggered Hallgrímskirkja church is a special highlight. Lastly, we also highly recommend the cured Arctic char or Icelandic blue mussels at your hotel’s restaurant – a locals’ favourite.

    Stay: Hotel Reykjavík Centrum, Iceland

  • Day 2 » Northern Lights by Superjeep

    Today is left free for optional tours. Perhaps head out on the famous Golden Circle route, taking in Thingvellir National Park, beautiful Gullfoss waterfall and Strokkur, a geyser whose clockwork-regular outbursts reach up to 20 metres high. And, if you’re feeling adventurous, there’s even the chance to ride a snowmobile on a glacier. Then, as night descends, enjoy a real trip highlight as you join a Superjeep tour in search of the Northern Lights. Heading off road to the remotest spots, far from any artificial light, you’ll have the best chance to see the aurora in all its technicolour glory.

  • Day 3 » Day at leisure/optional activities

    With another day left free for optional adventures, maybe take the chance to head out onto the frigid Atlantic swells to spot humpbacks, minke whales and pods of playful dolphins. Alternatively, head south to discover black-sand beaches and glacial lagoons, or strap on a pair of crampons for a thrilling ice caving adventure.

  • Day 4 » The Blue Lagoon & depart for UK

    After breakfast, an included transfer will see to the Blue Lagoon. Shrouded in mists and ringed by volcanic rock, its geothermally heated waters are the perfect pre-flight tonic. After a soak, a shuttle transfer will bring you to the airport for your flight home.
