Local Living Iceland—Northern Lights & Reykjavík

Local Living Iceland—Northern Lights & Reykjavík
Duration 5 Days
From £0
Duration 5 Days

It’s one thing to look at photos of the majestic Northern Lights – it’s definitely another to see them for yourself while living in Iceland for five days. While we’ll absolutely take some time to go in search of the Lights, we’ll also include some local elements to best connect you to winter life in Reykjavík – think visiting a local flea market, buying fish for a cooking class, and touring this beautiful city. The CEO is a native Icelander and will be able to impart loads of knowledge about customs and daily life. Throw in some free time to keep this trip extra customizable and you’ve got an Iceland living experience to remember.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Reykjavik

Share a fully equipped house in Reykjavík with your fellow travellers, using it as a jumping off point for your Local Living adventures. Tonight, if the conditions are right, we'll set off to hunt for the Northern Lights. If not, we will try again tomorrow. Additional Notes: Note that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomena, and as such, we cannot control them. We do not have formal statistics on the success rate of viewing the Northern Lights, but it is very high because if the chances are not favourable for viewing, we cancel and reschedule the tour. For that reason, we offer the Northern Lights excursion early on in the trip so if the tour is cancelled or not successful, there is additional time to opt to book a second tour. Included Activities: Arrival Day and Welcome Meeting Northern Lights Tour

Day 2 Reykjavik (1B, 1L, 1D)

Get to know Reykjavîk on a guided tour of the city. Stop by Kolaportið, the local flea and fish market, scour the stands for a bargain, then help the CEO buy some fish for dinner. Stop by some naturally heated pools popular with the locals. Enjoy a cooking demonstration with the CEO to learn how to make delicious and hearty Icelandic dishes. Included Activities: Reykjavik City Tour Kolaportið Flea Market Visit Naturally Heated Pools Visit

Days 3-4 Reykjavik

During your free time, set off and really get to know Reykjavîk and its surroundings. Opt to set off by foot to get to know the city, or book a tour to visit some of the natural sites for which Iceland is famous, such as the Golden Circle or the Sólheimajökull Glacier.
