Meals On Board
Depart Singapore Changi Airport for your flight to Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. 

Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure exploring the cosmopolitan city.

Today, embark on a guided city tour of Reykjavik. Visit the presidential residence at Bessastadir and the village of Hafnarfjordur, Iceland’s 3rd largest town and home of the "hidden people" - elves, dwarves and other spirits. Then, view other attractions like Perlan, Hofdi House, Laugardalur and the Parliament House. Continue to Hallgrimskirkja, the largest church in Iceland where the architectural design resembles the basalt lava flows of Iceland’s landscape. The church’s colossal pipe organ stands at 15 metres, filling the space with climatic notes. In the evening, go on a Northern Lights hunting tour in search of magnificent auroras. On a clear night, you may be lucky to spot the Northern Lights in dramatic shapes, colours, patterns and sizes swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the sky.

After breakfast, depart Reykjavik for an extraordinary 2-night excursion to the many popular attractions in Iceland. Stop by Fridheimar Greenhouse, the proud suppliers of the sweetest tomatoes in Iceland and go for a stable visit to see the friendly Icelandic horses. Head west to the Golden Circle, and stop by Thingvellir National Park, the first national park in Iceland and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Continue your journey to visit some of Iceland’s greatest natural attractions including the breathtaking 2-tiered Gullfoss waterfall, hot springs of The Great Geysir and Strokkur, as well as the surrounding geothermal area. Tonight, head to a nearby accommodation for a good night’s rest.

This morning, head towards the South Coast of Iceland. Be enthralled by the picturesque Seljalandsfoss, a waterfall that plummets 200 feet into a deep plunge pool below. View glorious Eyjafjallajokull Glacier, an ice-capped volcano that gained notoriety when it caused substantial disruption to air traffic across Europe in 2010. Next, stop by Skogar to visit the famous Skogafoss, regarded by many as the most spectacular waterfall in Iceland. Continue your journey to the charming village of Vik to explore black sand beaches with picturesque basalt column formations and view the magnificient Reynisdrangar. Continue your journey across Eldhraun lava field. Tonight, head to a nearby accommodation for a good night’s rest.

This morning, drive to Jokulsarlon, a large glacial lagoon in southeast Iceland and explore the black sand shores where you can try to spot seals swimming in the lagoon. View a variety of icebergs which range from white with streaks of charcoal-black soot to translucent formations that resemble glass and gorgeous chunks of powder blue. Continue your journey to Skaftafell National Park where your glacier encounter will culminate with a glacier walk under the supervision of a certified glacier guide at Svinafellsjokull, part of Vatnajokull Glacier, the largest glacier in Europe. Be awed by magnificent views as you witness ice formations and crevasses along the way, learning how they are formed and how the glaciers continuously reshape. If you are lucky en route back to Reykjavik, you might be able to spot the Northern Lights along the way.

Note
Please wear comfortable hiking shoes for the glacier hike. The Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon and sighting is subject to weather conditions.

This morning, start off your day with your choice of bonus tour. You may consider to retrace the footsteps of your favourite "Game of Thrones" characters through the mysterious landscape of Iceland, explore the underwater world with a snorkelling tour in Silfra fissure, one of the Iceland's most captivating snorkelling spots, dig deeper into Iceland's treasures with a lava cave exploration tour, taking a journey across striking landscapes on Snaefellsnes Peninsula, or a once in a lifetime adventure deep inside Langjokull glacier in some of the world's largest man-made ice caverns.

Begin your day with a visit to Blue Lagoon with your premium package admission, reputed for the unique properties of the geothermal seawater in the lagoon. The geothermal spa water, which is about 37 to 39 degree celsius, contains minerals and salts which are said to be therapeutic for one’s well-being. Relax and unwind in the saunas and steam baths or get a natural massage under the Blue Lagoon waterfall. Thereafter, you may choose to dine at your own expense at "Café Blue" or by the stunning lava cliff in the restaurant "Lava", which serves authentic Icelandic cuisines inspired by top Michelin restaurants.
