Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Reykjavik

Arrive in Iceland’s coastal capital and transfer to your 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: CenterHotel Plaza (Standard)

Meals: Breakfast included

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.

Stay: CenterHotel Plaza (Standard)

Meals: Breakfast and dinner included

Days 3-5
Ilulissat

Transfer to Reykjavik Domestic Airport and board an Air Iceland flight to Ilulissat, a small settlement on Greenland’s west coast. 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, cafe and bar.

The hotel operates regular shuttle bus transfers to the centre of town, where you can join one of a range of exciting excursions, from dog sledding and iceberg cruising 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. Breakfast is only on Day 4.
