South Iceland Winter Break

5 Day Tour, from £895 per person
Much of Iceland’s most spectacular scenery can be found in the south. Explore volcanoes, glaciers and hot springs, as well as the old town and harbor in Reykjavik, before heading into the hills to spot the Northern Lights. 
 
The south of Iceland has perhaps more natural wonders than anywhere else in the world. Bleak but beautiful, our guided excursions will introduce you to the 20m high explosions of Strokkur geyser and the thundering waterfall at Gullfoss. In Thingvellir National Park you’ll be able to watch continental plates drifting apart over a landscape of lava fields buried in snow. We also have the perfect escape from the snow and ice. Take a dip in the geothermal waters over at the Blue Lagoon. 
  
We’ll introduce you to Reykjavík with a local tour guide. Take in 360-degree views from the hilltop Perlan, see the famous Hallgrímskirkja church or just explore a city that manages to mix stylish Nordic confidence with intimate Icelandic friendliness. By night, escape the bright lights and join a trip deep into the surrounding countryside to see the Northern Lights.

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.
