Long Weekend in Reykjavik, Iceland

A perfectly sized island lost in the icy Atlantic can make any traveller’s dream come true.

Maybe it’s chasing the Northern Lights in dreamlike, volcanic scenery with no light or air pollution? Or driving across centuries-old glaciers and majestic volcanoes in robust super jeeps and stopping for a sensational photographic moment next to thundering waterfalls or steaming geysers? Or why not explore the extra-terrestrial topography of Iceland onboard a private helicopter and land next to a remote local restaurant where ‘humar’, the local lobster, is served in abundance?

From design hotels in eclectic Reykjavik where you will fast experience the fine and fashionable Nordic lifestyle to luxury expeditions and mobile-tented camps built on ice-blue glaciers. Iceland has it all.

Key highlights

  • Discover Iceland’s famous Golden Circle. Thingvellir National Park, the Gullfoss waterfall, and the geothermal area in Haukadalur, which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur.
  • Swim in the Blue lagoon

Guideline Price:  £4,000 per person (excluding international flights)

Today Thingvellir is a national park by many considered the most important one where the protected area will always be the property of the Icelandic nation. Research has made it clear that Thingvellir is a natural wonder on an international scale, with the geologic history and the bios stem of Lake Thingvallavatn forming a unique entity.

From there, head to the most impressive waterfalls in Europe, Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall).  Here you will see thousands of tons of icy water thunder majestically down in a double-fall into a deep gorge from the glacier Langjokull.
