Iceland is one of the few places on earth that is as much of a nirvana in the dead of winter as it is in other seasons. Discover a hidden world of underground lava caves, walk across a glacier, relax in the legendary Blue Lagoon, enjoy the picturesque frozen tundra and search for the famous Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).

Reykjavik is northern quirk at its best, and its residents have often been considered the friendliest and most welcoming people in the world. Explore the world’s most northerly capital with your private guide, with stops to the city’s most important sights including Reykjavik’s old town and the city cathedral, Hallgrimskirkja. Take a guided Jeep excursion to Langjokull Glacier for a thrilling glacier tour on a snowmobile, followed by a relaxing bath of restoring mineral waters in a secret lagoon. There are very few experiences one can have like watching the northern lights dance across a frozen Icelandic sky on top of a glacier. Combine caving and snorkeling in one epic day tour as you visit Thingvellir National Park. Refresh in the beautiful blue lagoon before your private airport transfer.

Enjoy a personalized vacation that best suits your needs, developed by one of our experienced destination experts. Relax during your trip with our 24/7 support and expert local guidance.

Day 4: Reykjavik

Combine Caving and Snorkeling in one day! You will head to Thingvellir National Park, where you will explore the hidden marvels of a lava cave. The Gjabakkahellir cave is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube and is situated in one of the most active volcano areas in the world. After the underground exploration, head to lake Thingvallavatn. Snorkeling in the Silfra fissure is the second activity and incredible adventure of the day. Silfra is one of Iceland's best-kept secrets, a submerged crack between two continental plates that drift apart 2 cm per year. It's an otherworldly underwater scenary in countless shades of blue. The crystal clear water in the deep fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float down with the lazy current. Please note: An alternative itinerary is available during winter season from 16.Sept to 14.May (depending on weather and snow conditions). You basically start with going caving and then snorkeling. Furthermore you explore Leiðarendi cave in the Blue Mountain area instead of Gjábakkaheillir cave. Tour includes: guided tour withi caving & snorkeling, necessary equipment for activites.

  • John D. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    Had a great trip to Spain and Portugal. All went well. No polishing points or constructive feedback to provide. This was the third trip with Kensington in 18 months and all were wonderful.

  • Carlos B. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    It was our first trip to Italy. I can only describe my experience as exceptional. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The tours were exceptional and very punctual. The accommodations and transportation were first class. I have already started to recommend Kensington tours and I will definitely will use them in my future trips.

  • Nancy H. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    This was the second tour we have taken with Kensington Tours. This was very different from our first tour but just right for this time. My husband and I traveled with my 85 year old parents.The accommodations and the pace of the travel worked very well. Our guide, Dermot, was very friendly and very understanding of our special needs as well as very knowledgeable. I have already had further communication with him. Thanks for the memorable experience.

  • Molly P. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Our family loved our week in Iceland. I am 70 and our youngest is 9. Each activity was well suited for the whole group. We changed one event and Kensington Tours immediately helped us cancel one and sign up for a new adventure. When I had questions they helped me out. Their professionalism, kindness, and attentiveness made our trip a complete success. Thank you!

  • Tammy M. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Jessica Clements was a tremendous help as my husband and I planned our pre-cruise visit to Athens and the Peloponnese. Many thanks for all your efforts. We enjoyed our tours very much. Our guides, Niki Stavrakaki and Andronikos Sakatos, were phenomenal. Our drivers, Makias and Demetrios, were very professional and delightful gentlemen. We had a great time exploring many of the ancient sites we've dreamed of seeing for years.

  • Caroline W. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Transfers were seamless and activities were great. Overall, we are very impressed with Kensington!

  • Beth N. — June 15, 2016 — Europe

    Everything exceeded our expectations!!! Our guides were amazing. Our hotels were wonderful. I wouldn't change anything about our trip! Thanks for your help!

  • Dalia D. — June 15, 2016 — Europe

    I am so glad that I used Kensington Tours to help me plan my trip to Italy. Ingryd was an excellent agent - she understood exactly what was important to my family and every aspect of our trip from Rome to Florence to Venice was well planned and enjoyable, with no hiccups. We made changes to our schedule when in Italy and the local agents were very responsive and quickly adapted our plans to work better for us. We loved the personal attention we got on our private guided tours and felt we learned a lot from knowledgeable guides that were personable and very informative.

  • Barbara K. — June 08, 2016 — Europe

    Another fabulous trip! John O'Connell was so congenial and knowledgeable. I feel like he has become a new friend. We had a great time with him and he made some excellent recommendations for small changes in our itinerary. He was so attentive and caring with my mother too! A really sweet man. Sean Finnigan in Dublin was a bundle of energy - took us to the museum to see the gold exhibit which we knew nothing about - so glad he did! Bought my sister and I a postcard of the Book of Kells alphabet as a remembrance - so kind! It was a trip we will never forget!!

  • Samuel T. — June 08, 2016 — Europe

    Wonderful preparation! Great time and great planning. Definitely use them again in the future.
