New Year's Eve & Northern Lights at the Hotel Alda
5 Day Tour, from £1129 per person
Explore Iceland's capital, Reykjavik on this 5 day adventure and spend New Year's Eve celebrating Icelandic style. On New Year's Eve in Reykjavik, almost every family in the city seem to come out and gather together to let off fireworks, turning into one of the largest displays in the world. Combined with music, dancing and cocktails, New Year's Eve in Reykjavik is a unique glimpse into local life and a night not to be missed.
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.
Arrive in Iceland and transfer from Keflavik International Airport to the Hotel Alda in Reykjavik. This evening, embark upon a journey by Superjeep to search for the northern lights.
Today, why not book an optional excursion and visit Iceland's famous Golden Circle by Superjeep. Discover Þingvellir National Park, where the first Icelandic parliament was established over 1,000 years ago, see mighty Gullfoss waterfall plunge into a 32m crevice and visit the Geysir geothermal field to witness Strokkur geyser erupting into the sky.

This evening enjoy the best views of Reykjavik‘s spectacular display of fireworks and be a part of the local festivities. Enjoy a toast of sparkling wine and ring in the New Year Icelandic style. Watch in awe as the skies of Reykjavik are set ablaze with over 500 tons of fireworks. (B)
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)
Enjoy a morning in Reykjavik before transferring to the airport for the flight to the UK. (B)
