Is This Trip Right for You?

Sightings cannot be guaranteed. You can expect to walk over rough, uneven terrain in dark conditions, and therefore proper winter clothing and footwear as well as a flashlight are essential for your safety and comfort. Meals may be expensive as most all of Iceland’s food is imported. Affordable optional sightseeing excursions are available to enhance your holiday.

DAY 1 - Depart for Iceland
Depart for Iceland

DAY 2 - Arrive in Iceland, Northern Lights Evening Tour*
Welcome to Iceland, transfer independently to your hotel in Reykjavik. 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. Spend the balance of the day at leisure to explore Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, surrounded by incredible landscapes and countless natural wonders. Or perhaps take an optional city tour of Reykjavik during which you’ll visit landmarks such as the Pearl for unrivaled views over Reykjavik and the Northern lights Center. View Höfði House where Reagan and Gorbachev met to end the Cold War, and see Hallgrimskirkja church, an iconic Reykjavik landmark. Gain invaluable insight into the Icelandic society and how Reykjavik has developed from a small fishing village into a modern capital. End your tour at Harpa Concert & Conference Hall where you can choose to stay in downtown Reykjavik on your own, or return to your hotel. Later tonight, 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*
Optional: Reykjavik City Tour (AM)

DAY 3 - Full Day in Reykjavik
Spend the day at leisure to explore Reykjavik, surrounded by incredible landscapes and countless natural wonders.

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!

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.

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.
