Reykjavík, Iceland (Pre-Trip)

FROM $1,499 PER PERSON | 3 DAYS | $499 PER DAY

Iceland’s tidy and small city is a wonder to explore on its own, though it’s often (and rightly!) the gateway for the country’s hot springs and breathtaking fjords and unspoiled scenery. Get to know the world’s northernmost capital on this exciting and compact extension, where we’ve included a tour of the city’s highlights and an excursion to the luxuriant and milky-blue waters of the famed Blue Lagoon. You’ll have plenty of opportunities for free time to shop along the Laugavegur promenade and to try Iceland’s intriguing cuisine. Most adventurers who visit Iceland vow to return, and do. Here’s your chance to see why Reykjavík is a city you must know — in true Vantage style.

Your Price Includes:

  • 2 nights’ accommodations in Reykjavík at the Fosshotel Reykjavík (or similar)
  • 3 meals: 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner
