Want to spend your holidays in a truly magical way? Spending Christmas in Iceland is a unique chance to experience the food, culture and gorgeous landscapes that make winter in Iceland spectacular. There are so many exciting reasons to visit Iceland in the winter season, and Icelandair brings you the perfect opportunity to go this year with their Reykjavik Christmas Special starting at $1,145* per person for non-stop flights, hotel and more!
Picture this: elegant ice-skaters flitting across the frozen Tijornin pond, trees lit up and decorated on every corner, shops large and small decorated with holiday cheer. And these are just the sights surrounding where you’ll be staying at the Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura. The hotel is equipped with welcoming staff, the luxurious Soley Natura Spa and a unique proximity to the beautiful wooded areas of Oskjuhlid Hill. After a day of rest and exploration following arrival, you can experience Iceland’s geothermal pools as a natural way to ward off jet lag, followed by an exciting night of hunting for the otherworldly northern lights. The next few days will be full of culture and fun, as tour guides take you across the Golden Circle Route in South Iceland. Be sure to take in the breathtaking Gullfoss waterfall, active Geysir geothermal area, mud pools and hot springs, and Thingvellir National Park, the stunning site where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. All this, followed by a sumptuous buffet of traditional Nordic dishes to revive your spirits after a long day.
But the sights and travel don’t stop there. For those of you invested in culture and tradition, you’ll be happy to know there is a private Christmas-themed walking tour starting right out of the Hotel Reykjavik Natura. A local expert dressed in Icelandic heritage attire will help you gain insight on the history, art, architecture, culture and cuisine of the capital city. As an added bonus after walking through charmingly decorated Old Town, your tour guide will take you to one of Iceland’s best restaurants, which also houses one of their finest private art collections. Topping off a lovely meal from some of the most skilled chefs in Iceland is a surprise gift for you, ending the tour and leaving you a souvenir of your time in Reykjavik. What a trip!
