Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Depart forReykjavik

Kick-start your holiday in style with included airport lounge access before your flight to Reykjavik where a transfer will bring you to your city-centre hotel. On your first evening, we recommend you travel far from the city lights and deep into the spectacular surrounds by Super Jeep and go in search of the Northern Lights.

Stay: Grand Hotel Reykjavik or similar (Standard)

Day 2
Reykjavik surrounds

After breakfast head out to some of Iceland’s impressive natural phenomena. Visit Thingvellir National Park, the site of Iceland’s first parliament, see the great geysers and steaming vents of Haukadalur and make a call at Gullfoss, Iceland’s largest waterfall. Sample a selection of local delicacies at Restaurant Reykjavik.

Days 3-5
Ilulissat

Fly to Ilulissat, a small settlement on Greenland’s west coast. On arrival, you'll be met by your local guide for your included transfer to Hotel Arctic, a cosy hotel with exceptional views of the town and the creeping icebergs of the frozen bay. Your base for the next three nights, the hotel offers comfortable rooms, suites and separate igloo rooms, and has a celebrated gourmet restaurant, which you'll experience first hand with welcome and farewell dinners, both included in the price. Once you've settled in, enjoy an included tour of the town to familiarise yourself with your new surroundings before dipping into the region's stunning nature on a range of exciting excursions. There's everything from dog sledding and iceberg cruises to wintry hikes and guided tours of neighbouring settlements – nearby Ilimanaq is home to just 80 people and a visit to the village offers a fascinating glimpse of life in Arctic isolation.
