7th – 11th February 2022
Winter in Iceland is simply majestic and in our experience one of the most spectacular times to visit this beautiful country. Marvel at the unique landscape that Southern Iceland has to offer on a Golden Circle tour, indulge in some relaxation at the Blue Lagoon and, if you’re one of the lucky ones, catch a glimpse of the fabled Northern Lights. The best bits of this fabulous island are included but you’ve also got some spare time to make the trip your own, be that with a whale watching cruise, a hop on hop off bus tour or an insight into the Viking origins of this wondrous country.
Prices are per paying passenger and based on 2 people sharing a twin room and a minimum of 25 paying passengers. Single rooms are available at a supplement.
Depart from a London airport to Iceland. Take some time to relax after your flight at the otherworldly Blue Lagoon before continuing on to your hotel. Arrive at the Hotel Cabin in time for your evening meal and a chance to get to know your fellow travellers.
You will have the day time free today to gear up for your Northern Lights hunt later on.
This evening you’ll be heading out on your own coach for a hunt of the elusive Aurora Borealis AKA the Northern Lights. Sightings can’t be guaranteed but our guide knows the best spots and will make sure you have the greatest chance of witnessing this amazing phenomenon. Fingers crossed!
Today you’ll embark on The Golden Circle Tour which takes you on a wondrous circular journey through the heart of Iceland’s Southern Region, stopping at some of Iceland’s most iconic sites including Þingvellir National Park, Geysir Geothermal area and Gullfoss Waterfall.
Today you’ll have a free day to explore Reykjavik. Jump on the hop on hop off bus, visit one of the many museums or brave the high seas with a whale watching tour.
After breakfast, you’ll be transferred to Keflavik airport for your flight back to London.
Located in Reykjavik’s East district, Hotel Cabin is just 750 yards from Laugardalslaug geothermal swimming pool, the Sculpture and Shore Walk promenade is just a stone’s throw away, and Reykjavík city centre is just under a mile away and is easily reached on-foot. The comfortable rooms benefit from a TV and a private bathroom and the hotel has a buffet restaurant and a lobby bar to relax after a day of exploration.
