Our 3 night Reykjavik City Stay is the perfect way to visit the land of the midnight sun and the world’s most northerly capital. Unlike many of our other tour packages, our Iceland Adventure is designed for travelers who desire the freedom and flexibility to travel at their own pace. Iceland boasts one of the world’s oldest parliaments, found in 930 A.D. Transfers and a guided tour of Reykjavik are included. You can continue to explore Reykjavik and its surrounding areas freely from your centrally located hotel, or you may choose to join the search for the mysterious and dynamic Aurora Borealis during our optional Northern Lights Excursion.
