Your Itinerary —
You may choose from either a three or four night stay
Once you have landed at Keflavik Airport in Iceland, please pick up your luggage. Take the FlyBus Plus airport shuttle transfer to the Hotel Island. 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 14:00 (2:00pm)
The rest of the day is free for your own activities. We suggest a walk in the Old Town area with galleries, museums, restaurants and pubs. The Hotel Ísland is within walking distance of the popular Laugardalurslaug geothermal pool, the largest one in Reykjavík. Also nearby is the relaxing Laugar Spa. The hotel also has its own new spa, Heilsa (spa admission not included in package). Also in the area of the hotel are the year-round botanical gardens and the intriguing Ásmundur Sveinsson sculpture museum. Many restaurants are located in walking distance of the hotel, and the hotel recently opened a little bistro café on the first floor. The hotel is about a 20 minute easy walk to Laugavegur, the main shopping street and the Hlemmur area, which is emerging as a cool place for pubs, restaurants and musical entertainment. A city bus stop is located near the hotel. Overnight at your hotel.
Enjoy the delicious breakfast at your hotel. Please be waiting in the front of the hotel at 8:00am for the pick-up on today's day tour. You will be visiting the beautiful Borgarfjörður area of West Iceland. This is a popular getaway area for Icelanders, and it has a little of everything that makes Iceland special: waterfalls, hot springs, glacier views, and Viking history. It even has some of the best lava caves in the country! Stop at Hraunfossar, the Lava Falls. These beautiful waterfalls were created in connection with an ancient volcanic eruption; today the glacial water appears to burst through a network of lava formations.
After driving through an interesting and innovative undersea tunnel, you‘ll emerge into West Iceland. Visit Deildartunguhver, the most powerful hot spring in Europe. These rapidly rushing hot springs are used to provide heat and hot water for the local area. It is amazing to see their power.
After the cave visit, visit the nature resort area of Húsafell, where you can relax in the hot-spring fed swimming pool and hot tubs. Return to Reykjavík in the evening.
Breakfast at your hotel. Today is open for your own activities. Perhaps you will use the day to visit the popular Golden Circle area or the Blue Lagoon. Try some outdoor activities like glacier river rafting, or an off-road buggy ride.
