Local Living Iceland—Northern Lights & Reykjavík

Tour Map

Tour style - Local Living, Culture & History

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.
  • Day 1-4 Reykjavík (3B,2D)

    Your home for the next five days is a family-style house in central Reykjavík within comfortable walking distance to downtown. The house has a combination of twin-share and double bedrooms, along with a comfortable living room, fully equipped kitchen and multiple shared bathrooms. Clean sheets and towels will be provided upon arrival to be used for the duration of the tour. The house is professionally cleaned before and after each group’s stay, but the group is asked to assist in keeping the house clean and tidy during the tour. In Iceland, it is standard practice to remove shoes before entering a home, and it is requested that tour participants do the same. We will meet at the location listed under Joining Hotel at 4pm tonight and transfer together to our house at that time. Tonight, if the conditions are right, we'll set off to hunt for the Northern Lights. If the conditions are not right, we will try again tomorrow. 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 tour early on the trip so if the tour is cancelled or not successful, there is additional time to opt to book a second tour.

  • Day 5 Reykjavík (1B)

    Get to know Reykjavîk on a guided tour of the city. We include a visit to Kolaportið, the local flea and fish market, where you can scour the stands for a bargain and then help your CEO buy some fish for dinner. Also stop by some naturally heated pools popular with the locals. 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 at tour to visit some of the natural sites for which Iceland is famous, such as the Golden Circle or the Sólheimajökull Glacier. On two evenings, enjoy two cooking lessons with your CEO to learn how to make delicious and hearty Icelandic dishes.
