In the morning after breakfast you your private guide and driver at the hotel lobby and go on an amazing 2.5-hour city tour around the most significant places in Reykjavik and the nearby area.

During the tour you stop by the official residence of the President of Iceland called Bessastadir. Your next stop is Hafnarfjörður - a port town and municipality located about 10 km from Reykjavik. This place is known as the home of the "Hidden people" Huldufolk from local folklore, meaning elves in Iclandic.

Then you proceed to the futuristic Perlan dome from which you see spectacular views over Reykjavik and its surroundings. You make a stop at Hofdi, the building where the all-important summit between the former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and the former U.S.S.R. Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev took place in 1986.

Then on to the Hallgrimskirkja Church that is the tallest building in Iceland where you have a chance to walk up the stairs to see the view of the city center (entrance tickets are not included). Another place you see today is the Althing building - a classical 19th-century building which is home to the Icelandic parliament's main debating chamber.

After the Reykjavik city tour you meet your tour group, guide and driver. Together you set off on a 3-hour Northern Lights mystery tour. Today you have the chance to see the Northern Lights flashing across the sky in brilliant patterns and learn all about the Aurora Borealis.

After the tour you return to your hotel and have a free evening.

After breakfast you and your tour group continue your Iceland adventure with a relaxing tour to the Blue Lagoon - one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. You have some free time to soak up in the Northern sun while relaxing in warm geothermal seawater surrounded by a surreal lava field.

In the evening you and your group have a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Northern Lights on board a comfortable boat. During the tour your expert guide tells you all about the Northern Lights, the folklore and superstition, and explains the underlying scientific facts that make this magical light show possible. The tour takes 2 – 3 hours. Warm overalls are included.
