You won’t regret spending time exploring Reykjavik and its surrounds. Discover cosmopolitan Reykjavik on a walking tour, and treat yourself to a relaxing soak at the famous Blue Lagoon.


Day 1 – Reykjavik

On arrival at Keflavik airport, transfer by Airport Direct to Fosshotel Reykjavik, your hotel for your time in Reykjavik. Spend the rest of the day at leisure, starting to explore the local area.

Overnight: Fosshotel Reykjavik


Day 2 – Half Day Afternoon Reykjavik City Tour

Make your own way to Hallgrímskirkja Church located at the top of the downtown hill. Enjoy a stroll through the quaint streets of the Þingholt neighbourhood towards the City Pond, where we will feed the ducks, geese and swans found on the northern end of the pond – fun for kids and grown-ups alike and a popular activity with local families on weekends.

Continuing across the pond and into the City Hall, we view the super-sized topographical map of Iceland, and your guide will provide insight into Iceland’s fascinating geology and volcanic history. The excursion continues by weaving its way through the heart of the city, taking in the parliament, our modest but beautiful cathedral, and the site of the first Viking homesteads in the city, before visiting the busy Old Harbour. The excursion ends with a visit to the impressive Harpa Concert Hall.

Make your own way back to your hotel. (B)

Overnight: Fosshotel Reykjavik

Day 3 – Reykjavik

Today you will have a day of indulgence at the Blue Lagoon – one of Iceland’s most popular attractions. The Blue Lagoon is a natural geothermal pool in the middle of a large and dramatic lava field, and an oasis that owes its existence to a nearby geothermal power plant.

We stop for a refreshing bathe or a swim in the inviting, rejuvenating and pleasantly warm mineral-rich water (36°C-38°C/100-110°F), famed for its reputed healing properties. The pool’s warm water and natural active ingredients such as mineral salts, silica and blue green algae soothe the muscles, and an indoor pool and geothermal sauna are also on the site. Bathing in this surreal environment is a unique experience not to be missed.

You are free to spend the remainder of the afternoon at your leisure before meeting your fellow expeditioners this evening. Tonight’s accommodation is included as part of your voyage*. (B)

*2025 extension tour: On Day 3, please check out and store your luggage at reception before your transfer to the Blue Lagoon. On the return, you will be transferred back to the Fosshotel where you can pick up your stored luggage and make your own way to the group hotel, Reykjavik Hotel Grand.
