29 Dec  -  02 Jan

Explore Iceland's capital, Reykjavik on this 5 day adventure and celebrate New Year's Eve Reykjavik-style. On New Year's Eve everyone in the city seems to head out into the streets and gathers, locals and tourists alike, to start a bonfire and let off fireworks, creating one of the largest displays in the world. The night is filled with music, dancing and cocktails, and is always a fantastic way to welcome in the new year.  

Stay at the 4-star Hotel Alda in the heart of Reykjavik and embark on an exciting Superjeep journey to hunt for the northern lights. Speak to a Regent Holidays Travel Specialist to plan the activities for the rest of your trip: explore the natural wonders of the Golden Circle or stop at the Blue Lagoon for a soothing dip in the geothermal waters.

NEW YEAR'S DAY
NEW YEAR'S DAY
Spend New Year's Day being pampered on an optional excursion to the Blue Lagoon. Ask our Iceland specialists about the range of bookable options. Enjoy a morning or afternoon at the Blue Lagoon. Located south-west of Reykjavik near the fishing village of Grindavik, this thermal spa is the perfect way to unwind on New Years Day. A high-temperature geothermal field supplies the hot water to the Reykjanes district and steam to run the power plant, and it is the mineral-rich overflow water from this operation that fills the lagoon. The geothermal water is pumped up from 2,000 metres below the Earth’s surface and high levels of silica, minerals and algae give the lagoon its rich blue colour. Whether in the middle of winter surrounded by snow, or in the long summer daylight, the Lagoon is exciting, invigorating and superbly relaxing – an experience not to be missed! (B)

Best Western – good location, friendly staff and comfortable room. We went on a tailor made holiday, staying in Reykjavik and going out on some pre-arranged tours. This was very well organised.

The Best Western Reykjavik hotel staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel is in a good location. The tour of the Golden Circle was excellent, the driver went out of his way to make it more enjoyable. The Hunt for the Northern Lights excursion was excellent, fun and a real adventure. Questions were answered promptly by Jamie and I found him very helpful when I called to discuss the holiday originally.

Shane was a marvellous help with booking – especially the Greenland extension. Everything went so smoothly.

I can highly recommend both parts Iceland and Greenland.

Many thanks Shane.

We found the Family Tour itinerary very informative and it took us to places we might otherwise not have known about.  

The Narfeyrarstofa Restaurant in Skykkishólmur is excellent as is the exhibition and restaurant at the Settlement Centre in Borgarnes. The Laundromat Café/Bar and Iceland Fish and Chips in Reykjavik were also very good – take advantage of ‘happy hours’ to get good value for money, and the National Museum was very family-friendly.

We loved Iceland – and will be back! Thanks for your help.

The Hotel Borg is a very comfortable and attractive hotel. There is a good buffet breakfast with excellent coffee and is in an excellent location.
