Traditional style meets modern design at the Reykjavik Lights, an attractive hotel on the edge of Iceland’s capital.

The Reykjavik Lights Hotel occupies a spot on the edge of town. It’s about a half-hour walk into the centre of Reykjavik from here. Alternatively, you can catch the bus that stops just outside the property.

The hotel has been designed to celebrate Iceland’s ever-changing source of light. Each room is unique and themed around a specific day in the ancient Icelandic calendar. Local artwork depicts things like the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun.

Included Excursions

To help you experience Iceland at its best, this holiday includes a day-long Golden Circle tour and a Northern Lights trip. Transfers to and from the hotel are also included. Check out the itinerary below for all the details.

Package Itinerary

Day 1

Depending on your arrival time, you can join the Reykjavik City Tour to get your bearings of the capital city. And in the evening, you can search the skies for the famous Northern Lights. Please check with your hotel reception at 6pm to check whether the tour is operating. When the weather forecast is favourable, you’ll be picked up from your hotel about 9pm, with the tour starting at 9:30pm. You’ll spend a few hours looking for the Aurora Borealis. But if the weather isn’t great, your Northern Lights Tour will be rescheduled for another night, when you’ll hopefully have a better chance of seeing them. In the meantime, you can experience the nightlife of Reykjavik instead.

Day 2

Discover the sights of the Golden Circle on your second day. This 300-kilometre circuit takes a whole day to navigate, so we’ll pick you up from 8:30am for a 9am start. You can explore Thingvellir National Park, which spans the border between the North American and European tectonic plates. This World Heritage Site is also home to Iceland’s largest lake. Your tour then takes you on to Gullfoss – a huge glacial waterfall – and an active geyser, Strokkur. Since you’re out all day, your lunch will be included. And we’ll drop you back at your hotel by 4:30pm.

Day 3

It’s up to you how you spend the third day. Why not book an additional excursion and go snowmobiling, explore the inside of a glacier, or have a soak in the mystical Blue Lagoon? There are also whale-watching trips and a 4x4 Mountain Super Jeeps tour. Or you can spend some time in colourful Reykjavik, where you’ll find seafood restaurants, one-of-a-kind microbreweries, and multi-million-pound Harpa concert hall.

Day 4

If you’ve booked an extra night in Iceland, you’ll have even more time to explore. You can take a quad bike ride, or try Icelandic dishes at a Viking feast. If you fancy yourself as a budding photographer, join the South Shore Tour and take some photos of the dramatic landscape. Just so you know, some excursions are only available to book in resort.

Please Note: Since the Northern Lights are a weather-dependent natural phenomenon, their appearance cannot be guaranteed. Your Northern Lights Tour is scheduled to take place on the evening you arrive. However, if the weather isn’t great and your tour is cancelled, or the Lights don’t show during your tour, we’ll reschedule your tour for another night, when you’ll hopefully have a better opportunity to see them. We aim to send you on the tour at least once during your holiday. If for any reason adverse weather affects the operation of other excursions, then we will always do our best to try and reschedule these at some point during your stay.

When to go

Iceland has two very distinct tourist seasons. The summer months bring those looking for midnight sun and good road-tripping conditions. Winter, meanwhile, is ideal for holidaymakers after a glimpse of the Northern Lights. This is because the days are shorter and the skies are darker – in mid-January, the sun comes up at 11am and sets again at around 4.30pm. These reduced daylight hours result in cold temperatures, which can plummet as low as -10°C at times. Make sure you’re prepared by packing thermal clothing, warm boots and a good-quality coat.
