Your Destination —
The hotel is only a short bus ride away from Reykjavik's major attractions like the National Museum and University of Iceland. The Nordic house is just around the corner and the city center with its perpetual motion, museums, restaurants and shops, is only minutes away.
The old harbour is the heart and soul of Reykjavík. With a backdrop of majestic Mount Esja and the beautiful Faxafloi Bay, you'll find world-class restaurants, cutting edge galleries, funky cafés, and quirky shops. With it all, you’re still at the heart of a working harbour, where you can watch ships come in with their daily catches.
For stunning views of the city climb up Hallgrímskirkja Church tower or visit the pearl - an otherworldly creation with a viewing platform and a revolving restaurant on top of hot water storage tanks.
Your Itinerary —
Once you have landed at Keflavik Airport in Iceland, please pick up your luggage. Take the FlyBus Plus airport shuttle transfer to Reykjavík Lights . Remember to let the FlyBus representative on the bus know what hotel you are using for drop-off. Please note that hotel check-in cannot be guaranteed before 2:00 PM. The rest of the day is open for your own activities. We suggest a walk in the Old Town area with galleries, museums, restaurants and pubs. A visit to one of the city´s geothermal swimming pools is a great way to shake off jetlag and a very Icelandic activity. It is also a great way to meet Icelanders.
Reykjavík Lights is within easy walking distance of Laugardalur, the largest swimming pool in the city, and a favorite with visitors. Another popular place to visit is the Old Harbour, which has recently developed into a charming and vibrant artistic and craft area. Museums, craft shops and cosy restaurants make this an ideal place to spend an afternoon or evening.
Day 2. Northern Lights hunt
Enjoy the large and plentiful breakfast at the Reykjavík Lights. The day is yours to spend as you like. Tonight, join a Northern Lights Hunt. On a dark winter night in Iceland, join a mysterious tour looking for the Aurora Borealis. Far from the glow of Reykjavik city, we hunt for the elusive Northern Lights. From autumn until spring, during clear and cold dark nights it's possible to witness one of nature's most incredible displays: the northern lights, also known as Aurora Borealis. On this evening tour you may be lucky enough to see them swirling and dancing across the sky changing endlessly their colour, shape and size.
PLEASE NOTE: This tour is subject to weather conditions. Sightings cannot be guaranteed. In case of no northern lights during the tour, a second tour is offered free of charge

When to see the Northern Lights
The season for Northern Lights in Iceland extends from the tail end of the summer from September through winter and well into April.
The best time to see Northern Lights is in the middle of winter when the weather is the coldest and when it is the darkest. Crisp cold evenings with skies clear enough to see stars is a prime indicator for auroral activity.
