Day 1
Arrive Reykjavík, Iceland

Upon arrival at Keflavík International Airport, you are met by an A&K representative and transferred to the Blue Lagoon for a relaxing visit prior to checking in to your accommodations in Reykjavik. Kick off your journey with a dip in the legendary Blue Lagoon hot springs. Flowing from deep within the earth’s crust, the waters are rich in salts and other minerals.

Day 2
Reykjavik | In Search of the Northern Lights

Get the lay of the land with a tour of Reykjavik’s old town center, parliament, harbor and distinctive landmarks. Stop by the National Museum of Iceland to peruse historical exhibits spanning the settlement era to the present day. Next, visit a local artisan who specializes in crafting knife and dagger blades, an Icelandic tradition stretching back to Viking times. This evening, venture away from the city in search of the northern lights, a rare celestial phenomenon that bathes the night sky in an ethereal, spectacular glow. These northern latitudes afford ideal viewing conditions when the skies are clear.

Reykjavik | Inside a Glacier

Today, head north to encounter Iceland’s steaming hot springs, misty waterfalls and opalescent glaciers. First, take in the bubbling, geothermal might of Deildartunguhver hot springs, continuing on to witness the cascading majesty of Hraunfossar (Lava Falls) and Barnafoss (Children’s Falls). Next, climb aboard a rugged eight-wheel truck to explore the colossal Langjokull, Europe’s second-largest glacier. Finally, delve into the heart of the glacier itself. This tour traverses spectacular man-made tunnels, venturing deep into the magnificent blue ice that lies hidden beneath the surface.

Southern Iceland | Echoes of the Vikings

This morning, head northwest from Reykjavik to visit Thingvellir National Park, site of the Vikings’ historic inaugural parliament session. Take in the park’s natural beauty before continuing to Fridheimer and enjoying a lunch prepared with tomatoes from the on-site greenhouse. Then, drive to the Strokkur geyser. Train your camera’s lens to capture its dramatic eruption. Don’t lose heart if you don’t get a photo on the first try — the geyser erupts every five minutes. Finally, visit Gullfoss, a powerful, glacially fed waterfall and Icelandic icon.
