    Important Information

    This itinerary can be shortened according to your stopover plans. Your flight is likely to arrive in the early morning - we can pick you up at the airport, whisk you to the Blue Lagoon for an early dip and store your luggage before travelling into Reykjavik (60 mins drive away).

    Please note that the authorities of Reykjavik City have banned bus traffic in the city centre. Hence for small group activities, pick-up will be from a bus stop close to your hotel.

    Lunch can be purchased along the way during the day trips or bring your own. Boots can also be hired if necessary.

    The program is flexible and can be tailored to your preferences.
