Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Reykjavik Arrival | Panoramic City Tour | Perlan Observatory | Northern Lights Quest by Boat
Meet your guide at 2:00 PM. Take an orientation tour and discover Iceland’s capital city set on the southern shore of Faxa Bay. Discover Reykjavik’s settlement, history, and the natural beauty that surrounds it. You’ll be charmed by its architecture and the beautiful brightly-colored rooftops. Visit the Perlan Observation Deck, which offers magnificent 360° views of Reykjavik and its surroundings. Return to your centrally-located hotel and enjoy a welcome drink and canapes with your group, followed by dinner on your own. Then, head to the harbor for your Northern Lights quest. You’ll have beautiful views of the city and surrounding mountains as you sail away from the coastline of Reykjavik, watching for the aurora borealis.

Day 2: Thingvellir National Park | Secret Lagoon | Fridheimar Tomato Farm | Strokkur Geyser | Gullfoss Waterfall
Head out on the famed Golden Circle, starting with the spectacular Thingvellir National Park, a meeting place of old Icelandic clans. It is also where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet above ground. Journey to the Secret Lagoon: small and intimate, it’s where savvy travelers go to enjoy the Icelandic spa experience. Don’t forget your swimsuit! Enjoy a tasty lunch in the greenhouse of Fridheimar Tomato Farm. Then it’s on to the Strokkur Geyser, which erupts every 10 minutes. Stop at Gullfoss Waterfall, one of the most photographed spots in all of Iceland. Move on to your hotel below the Hekla volcano where you'll enjoy a sumptuous dinner. Once darkness falls, you can take a soak in the hotel’s outdoor hot tub while watching for the Northern Lights. (B, L, D)

Day 3: LAVA Center | Skogar Folk Museum | Skogafoss Waterfall | Black Sand Beach
Begin the day with a special early opening at the LAVA Center to learn about Iceland’s volcanoes, and how their eruptions and lava flows have shaped the country over time. VIsit the Skogar Folk Museum to explore Iceland’s cultural heritage and learn about the lives of Iceland’s early settlers through an array of tools, books, and handicrafts. Visit the nearby stunning Skogafoss Waterfall, where on sunny days a double rainbow is often visible. Save your appetite for dinner at your hotel tonight. Perfectly situated for Northern Lights viewing under an open sky, your hotel offers wake-up service if the lights are visible after bed time. (B, D)

Day 4: Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon | Diamond Beach | Skaftafell Wilderness Area
Travel into Vatnajokull National Park to Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, dotted with crystal-blue icebergs. Marvel at small icebergs flowing into the Atlantic or breaking up along the black sand of Diamond Beach. Enjoy lunch with a view of the surrounding countryside. Visit Skaftafell Wilderness Area with its enormous glaciers, snow-capped volcano and nearby lava fields. Return to your hotel where you can dine independently. It may be another perfect night to step into the darkness and search for the elusive Northern Lights. (B, L)

Day 5: Seljalandsfoss Waterfall | Reykjavik | The Blue Lagoon
Journey to the beautiful Seljalandsfoss Waterfall where, weather permitting, the sure-footed can walk the trail that takes you behind the 60-meter falls. This morning, you’ll travel back to Reykjavik, visiting en route any itinerary sites that might have been previously missed due to weather and enjoy the balance of the afternoon in the city exploring some of the many charming sites on your own. In the evening, you’ll be whisked away to the Blue Lagoon, a large man-made lake surrounded by a lava field that is also a geothermal spa. Share in a farewell dinner and lagoon entry with your group. Afterward, enjoy one last night-time drive for another possibility to see the famed Northern Lights. (B, D)

Day 6: Tour Ends in Reykjavik
Your tour ends after breakfast. (B) All visits are weather dependent. B: Breakfast; L: Lunch; D: Dinner   >

The trip was wonderful. This is our second CIE tour and totally enjoyed both and highly recommend.

Fantastic trip, more than I was expecting.

We greatly enjoyed this tour. The itinerary covered a lot of fabulous places to see, the accommodations were excellent, and the tour guide/coach driver was very entertaining and informative. We will definitely consider CIE and Affordable Tours in booking our next vacation. Thanks!

I expected more hands on guidance in the choice of pubs, more going as a group. However I liked very much our driver/guide, Matt Nolan. His manner was very pleasant, his introductions to the areas we visited and history talks were just enough, and he was skilled driver on the narrow roads. Time on the bus was calm and quiet which seemed to suit us. He managed all the travel details professionally.

Great tour, Highly recommended!

Exceeded my expectations. Wonderful accommodations, very interactive experience with the tour stops.

Wonderful experience, we are looking forward to booking another tour.

Price very reasonable. Nice accommodations. Great tours and good amount of free time.

It was a great experience from beginning to end.

I would highly recommend CIE Tours. The tour, accommodations and food were excellent. Our driver, David, was the best!

2nd trip with CIE. both were up to expectations. good drivers and guides. good selection of places to tour.

This was a great tour with lots of included activities. CIE was very accommodating and helpful.

CIE is a very solid tour company. This was our third trip with CIE and we have toured with five other companies, all well known. CIE is not the cheapest, but the quality is excellent and there are no optional excursions. Everything is included in the price. This means they stick to popular tour options. Optional excursions offer the chance to customize the tour or to opt out of some selections. There were no CIE scheduled attractions that we would have left out. Service and organization were very sound as always.

Our driver/ guide, Murt, made the whole experience very enjoyable. He had a great sense of humor, provided interesting stories & historical events and gave us the best amount of time each day to see all the events on our schedule.

CIE was great. Tour Director was wonderful.
