Is This Trip Right for You?

This moderately active, adventurous program is intended to offer an introduction to Iceland and give you the opportunity to search for and perhaps view the Northern Lights. Different from any other program, because of the extreme climate and unpredictable weather conditions, you should be prepared for itinerary and flight schedule changes. This independent program includes no tour manager. The included Northern Lights tour, which runs between 2-5 hours, departs between 9-10 pm and often extends late into the evening as exact schedules depend on local weather conditions. Sightings cannot be guaranteed. When known in advance, typically by 5 pm, that the Lights will not be visible on a given evening, a tour will be rescheduled for an alternate evening when feasible. Tour guides will vary on each excursion. If the Northern Lights are not visible during your included tour, we will attempt to offer another tour the following evening if conditions permit. You can expect to walk over rough, uneven terrain in dark conditions, and therefore proper winter clothing and footwear (Crampons or ice cleats to avoid slipping) as well as a flashlight are essential for your safety and comfort. Do not expect bathroom facilities at the sites. We suggest to carry tissues and hand sanitizer.

Meals may be expensive as most of Iceland's food is imported. Affordable optional sightseeing excursions are available to enhance your holiday. Most flights arrive to Iceland between 4:00-7:00 am, however hotel check-in begins at 2:00 pm. Only the pre-purchase of a hotel night will guarantee early check-in.

DAY 1 - Depart for Iceland
Depart for Iceland

DAY 2 - Arrive in Iceland, Reykjavik City Tour, Northern Lights Evening Tour
Arrive in Iceland and transfer to your hotel. Most flights arrive in the early morning and your room may not be ready for you. In this case, leave your luggage with the concierge. Later this morning at approximately 10:00 AM, enjoy a city tour of Reykjavík*. During the tour, view the old town center, the Parliament, the harbor, the Hofdi house, and the Hallgrímskirkja Church, whose steeple is a Reykjavík landmark. Then, visit the Pearl vantage point, a remarkable building unique to Iceland. Built in 1988, the Pearl is a glass dome constructed atop huge tanks in which natural hot water is stored for heating the city. It offers great views of the capital area and beyond. Next, visit the Northern Lights Center, followed by a view of the new Harpa Concert and Conference Hall. After the city tour, we suggest you take time to rest this afternoon as the Northern Lights search can last late into the evening. Tonight, join your Tour Manager for an Orientation Meeting. Then search the skies for the Northern Lights, (Aurora Borealis) among the most spectacular phenomena on earth. The Northern Lights originate from the sun, where large explosions and electronic storms throw charged solar particles deep into space. This solar wind is caught by the Earth's magnetic field on the south and north poles. The solar particles collide with atmospheric gases and create this wonderful light effect. This evening, hope to see these lights swirling and dancing across the sky, endlessly changing color, shape and size**

An indoor Blue Lagoon and geothermal sauna are also on site. The Blue Lagoon's warm water and natural ingredients of mineral salts, silica and blue green algae help you relax and escape the stress and strain of daily life

My trip to Iceland was awesome. We learned so much history and geology. Iceland is beautiful with its waterfalls, hot springs, geyers, horses and black beaches. The Blue Lagoon was a favorite. Our guide was helpful and informative ... And we did see the Northern Lights which was a thrill. The guide made every possible arrangement for us to see the lights. All is good.

Fantastic trip. This Florida girl was not looking forward to Iceland in February, but the cold was overcome by the warmth and friendliness of the Icelanders we encountered on this trip. It is truly a beautiful and magical landscape. Blue Lagoon was certainly a highlight as was the Northern Lights, which we got to see! We came away with an admiration for their conservation and use of their natural resources to enhance their every day lives. A great cultural, educational and enchanting experience. Can't wait to go back!

7 Day Reykjavik Special, November 2018

Our trip was AMAZING! ... It would be the first trip that my sister and I have ever taken together and I felt, at the time, not knowing about the company- I would be taking a BIG RISK! However...what a pleasant surprise! Our ticket arrangements were accurate and without complications, the hotel accommodations at Hotel Klopp was perfect, location, staff, cleanliness and breakfast was all outstanding! The best part was that whenever I called, and I did so because I was nervous about the reservation being secure, someone personally responded to my call and answered my questions or needs with respect - taking time to ensure I understood the issue. There was never a long wait time, or numerous robot links to get a connection and I felt that the representative was not only patient but wasn't inconvenienced by the call. I now recommend Gate 1 Travel to everyone that asks about my trip to Iceland and I'm looking to book another trip soon! ... I can't imagine why I didn't travel this way earlier. Live and Learn!

Our trip to Iceland was amazing, Helga, our guide, Fred, our driver, and the incredible scenery of Iceland were all wonderfully amazing. Each day was such a pleasure to see how it unfolded, the scenery was constantly breathtaking , the abundance of waterfalls, the immense lava fields, the geothermal areas and of course, the Icelandic horses, all were jaw dropping!

The Iceland trip was outstanding! The tour, the guide (Gugga), the meals (especially at the tomato farm), and the hotels were excellent. Experiencing the Northern Lights, the Blue Lagoon, the Black Beach, and all the other wondrous sights was amazing! Gugga and our new friends, who we met on the tour, made the experience even more fun.

Trip was excellent, the tour guide was excellent, she left us in no doubt about what to expect, kept us up to date all the way through our trip. The coach driver was exceptional, he drove in some terrible conditions and got us to our destination safely, it was an experience. We have travelled a lot over the years, they were the best partnership I’ve ever encountered. I would travel with your company again, it was very well organised, we were kept up to date the whole way through.

It was a great trip. Hanna, the local guide, was interesting and offered lots of interesting information. The airport transfers and optional tours were very nice. We enjoyed the time we had by ourselves to explore Reykjavik and dine at excellent restaurants.

The trip was absolutely amazing! Best trip both my boyfriend and I have ever taken. The food was pretty expensive but oh so delicious! I'd recommend Iceland to anyone and Gate 1 really made it easy to explore the best that Iceland has to offer.

The trip was fantastic. The guide and driver were excellent. We all enjoyed the hotel in terms of size, cleanliness, service, and overall look. Wish it was closer to city center. No complaints from our group

Our trip was excellent. This is my second trip with Gate 1 and I am very happy with it. Our hotel was in the Ideal location. We were right in the center of town and could walk everywhere. It was very clean and the breakfast and service was excellent. Our tour guide Guccu was also great. She was very nice, helpful, and very knowledgeable. Overall it was fantastic and I always rave about Gate 1 to everyone I talk to. I have another trip planned with Gate 1 in April and I’m very much looking forward to it.

The trip was terrific. Thanks for asking. We are a family with a wide age span ( 70, 50, 45 and 12). Everyone of us loved the trip. The raw landscape was breathtaking. Our guides were knowledgeable and helpful. The Blue Lagoon, at the end of our trip, was incredible.

The trip was excellent, I had limited concern as Iceland says they are a bit behind the curve in that the volume of tourists is increasing and their hotels etc are just now catching up , but I saw no lack of facilities. The hotel was good, the restaurants were great, the citizens of Iceland are very welcoming...Nothing could be improved upon , considering the geographies of the country, the trip, for me, was perfect. My tour director , Goodney and the driver, Augusto added very much to the enjoyment of this most pleasurable travel experience.
