Reykjavik Stopover

About Stopover, Kentucky

Icelandic folklore maintains there are clans of elves, trolls, and dwarfs—called Hidden People—that live in Reykjavik. According to recent polls, over 50% of Icelanders believe in these beings. We can’t say whether they exist or not, but we know that the Local Host® we’ve arranged for you in Reykjavik is not a “hidden person.” Instead, your Local Host is a local expert who will be on hand to answer your questions, offer suggestions, help you navigate the city, and make sure your vacation runs smoothly. And a Local Host isn’t all we’ve arranged for you on this vacation. On this 3-day vacation—perfect for a stopover to or from Europe—we’ve also arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, and sightseeing.

Your vacation in Iceland begins when you arrive at the Reykjavik airport, where we can pick you up and take you to your hotel. Your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome, help you get settled, and give you information to familiarize you with the city. Your vacation package includes a guided orientation of the city with a local expert. We’ll drive by its famous landmarks, including the presidential residence; Perlan, built atop the city’s geothermal hot water reservoirs; the old town center; and the Icelandic parliament building. We’ll also take you inside Hallgrimskirkja Church, the famous Lutheran church and the tallest building in Iceland.

You’ll also have free time to explore on your own. You may want to take an excursion to the world-famous Blue Lagoon Geo thermal spa, a great way to counter jet-lag or to just relax. Perhaps play golf at midnight, take a tour to learn more about the “hidden people,” visit one of the many museums and galleries, relax at the geothermal beach, or take in the stunning waterfalls and geysers. Your Local Host will have plenty of suggestions and can help arrange your activities.

And don’t forget, we’ve included breakfast in your package, so you’ll start each day fortified and ready for your Icelandic adventures. Between the sightseeing and guides we’ve arranged, the hotel we’ve booked, and the daily breakfast we’ve included, all you have to do is get ready for stunning scenery and great fun. Add the comfort of having a Local Host there for you throughout your stay, and you’ll be the envy of all your friends. Just be sure to grab your camera!
