Northern Lights Escape Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Reykjavik

Welcome to Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital. Explore the city’s vibrant art scene, tuck into some local delicacies or learn about the nation’s beginnings at the National Museum.

Day 2 Hvolsvollur

Get an enhanced appreciation of the city on a guided tour around its landmark attractions and points of interest. Pass Þingvellir, one-time location of what is ostensibly the world’s oldest parliament, on the road to the Geysir geothermal area. Watch natural hot springs bubble and spit and see Gullfoss – the Golden Waterfall.

Day 3 Gerdi

Day 4 Skaftafell National Park

Stop by Skaftafell National Park for some unforgettable time spent in the company of Vatnajokull - Europe's biggest glacier. Enjoy a 2-hour walk across the glacier’s ice-strewn expanse to get a true sense of its scale. Lunch in the village of Vik before arriving back in Reykjavik.

Days 5-6 Reykjavik

Experience more of Reykjavik through any number of optional activities and excursions. Pay a visit to the famed hot springs of the Blue Lagoon, set out whale watching or simply suss out the local bar and café scene.
