Upon arrival into Iceland, we'll arrange for a private transfer to take you to your hotel.
We have several recommendations for hotels for you to stay in depending on your preferences, but for the purpose of this itinerary we're suggesting Hotel Borg which is a landmark of luxury and sophistication in the heart of Reykjavik.
You'll then embark on a two-hour city walk.
Get to know Reykjavík and her history with in this great introduction to the fabulous city. During the tour Reykjavik's main attractions are highlighted on foot with guide.
You'll make your way to the old centre of town where you'll see Parliament, Iceland's Cathedral, Iceland's first (and oldest) street, Reykjavík's oldest house (which used to house a gay bar) and loads of other cool sites.
For LGBT guests, we'll pay particular attention to how and where gay history in Reykjavík began, how the battle for equality has evolved through the years and where we are at now. See the venues frequented by LGBT people throughout the years and learn about the general history and outlook of the people who built Reykjavík and those who inhabit it today.
Our guides encourage you to ask questions and they often joke that if they don't know the answer Icelanders are good storytellers and can probably come up with an answer more interesting than the facts!
Included: Northern Lights Tour
This evening, if suitable, you'll embark on your hunt for the Northern Lights. We'll schedule this trip on the night with best visibility.
The tour includes a wonderful two course meal and a visit to geothermal baths. This tour is all about flexibility and fun.
Mother Nature is our boss and we follow her lead. You will be picked up from your hotel in Reykjavík by your very own Out Of Office guide. Together you will embark on an adventure to the southern or western part of the country where you will try to track down the sometimes elusive Aurora Borealis (The Northern Lights).
Your guide will tell you about the area you cover while on the way and answer any questions you may have about Iceland, its culture and history. This tour takes you to some of the most beautiful places in Iceland, seldom seen in the dark by those who visit the country. Your guide will do his or her best to make sure you find the Northern Lights. If you don't, we promise that by the end of the tour you will still have had a great time, in great company and eaten some great food. We will always be honest with you about the probability of Northern Lights.
