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.

  • Karen S. — July 20, 2016 — Europe

    My trip to Scotland was absolutely wonderful. All the hotels were perfectly located, clean, and had wonderful amenities. The guides were exceptional and really knew Scotland and so much of the history. My Kensington representative, Lynne, was very helpful, very responsive, and was tremendously patient while I made numerous changes to the itinerary. It was a superb experience and one that I will never forget.

  • Ronald D. — July 20, 2016 — Europe

    Christian was our driver/guide. He was knowledgeable, thorough, caring/considerate and gave of his time greatly.

  • Meghan B. — July 20, 2016 — Europe

    My husband and I had the time of our lives in the UK and Ireland! The tours that were set up for us were exactly what we hoped for and more. We learned so much and saw so much! Very impressed! I have already told others about Kensington tours. If you book, you won't be disappointed! Thank you, Kevin!

  • Diana G. — July 20, 2016 — Europe

    Our tour guide in Roma,Francesco, was the best guide we ever had on this and our last trip that was provided by Kensington. Our other guides were also very good, but Francesco was outstanding.

  • Darron J. — July 20, 2016 — Europe

    Our guides were excellent. Noel Clawson in Wales was friendly, knowledgeable, and just a pleasure to be around. Glen Jones for our day with him was also excellent and I would highly recommend a guided tour of London. Much more efficient than the hop on/hop off tour.

  • Edward G. — July 15, 2016 — Europe

    All of the guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and conducted themselves in a professional manner. Both Dino Quaas and Andreas Zurner were extremely helpful and added significantly to the tour.

  • Major J. — July 15, 2016 — Europe

    Our honeymoon that was setup and organized by Kensington Tours was absolutely amazing. All the details were taken care of and made our trip pleasant and stress free. Our accommodations were top notch with beautiful views located close to our destinations. Our guides and trip advisors were very knowledgeable. I would recommend Kensington tours to all my friends and family for future use as a travel agency as well as they will be our first choice in our future travel plans.

  • Sara G. — July 15, 2016 — Europe

    Chantal designed an amazing trip for my sister and I! She was so helpful from start to end! Always answered me so promptly and walked me thru everything when booking! I can't wait to plan my next trip with Chantal and Kensington Tours

  • Terry G. — July 15, 2016 — Europe
