Itinerary & Accommodation

Itinerary & Accommodation


Day 1: Arrive in Iceland

After checking in to your hotel enjoy time at leisure or alternatively why not take a dip in the relaxing waters of the famous Blue Lagoon (entrance at additional cost – early pre-booking is essential)

Day 2: Golden Circle and Husafell

This morning meet your guide and spend the day exploring the famed Golden Circle route including Thingvellir National Park, where you can walk the rift in between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, the spectacular two-tiered waterfall Gullfoss and the spouting geysers of Geysir.

Spend the following three nights at Hotel Husafell on a half board basis, enjoying its smart contemporary interior. This evening perhaps enjoy dip in the nearby geothermal pools before dinner. Later this evening why not take advantage of the hotel’s rural location and try your luck at viewing the northern lights.

Day 3: Husafell (New Year’s Eve)

Spend the morning on a guided tour exploring the highlights around Husafell. Spanning a 900m stretch of the River Hvita, the delicate Hraunfossar waterfall flows from beneath an ancient lava flow, marbling the basalt with a lace-like pattern of rivulets. A stone’s throw upstream is Barnafoss (Waterfall of Children). You will also visit Deildartunguhver, Iceland’s most powerful hot spring, which releases 180 litres of scalding water every second.

This evening enjoy a delicious 5 course festive dinner (set meal) before heading out in the countryside and joining the guests and locals alike around the bonfire. Then head back to the hotel for a glass of bubbly and the countdown to the New Year. After welcoming the New Year continue the celebrations at the cosy bar and of course don’t forget to keep an eye out for the northern lights!

Day 4: Into the Glacier (New Year’s day)

After a late night enjoy a leisurely morning exploring the area on your own or just relax at the hotel.

In the afternoon, join an unforgettable ice cave adventure deep into the Langjokull icecap. Travelling in an 8WD snow truck (converted from a NATO missile launcher) you will scale the 1,450m-high icecap before setting off on foot inside the glacier. Following a 500m-long man-made tunnel, your guide will reveal fascinating insights into this surreal, frozen world, including crevasses and evidence of past volcanic eruptions ‘recorded’ in the blue ice. Later, return to Hotel Husafell for your last overnight night. Keep watch for the northern lights or ask reception for an aurora wake-up call.

Day 5: depart Iceland

Transfer to Keflavik Airport for the return flight home.
