Detailed Trip Description
A glamorous, hip, unique getaway is closer than you think! Reykjavik, Iceland, Europe's northernmost capital, is only 5 hours from the East Coast, the perfect distance for a long weekend getaway.

You can choose from spa treatments, nightlife, gourmet dining, sightseeing tours to take in Iceland's striking natural beauty and more. And don't forget a quick stop at the Blue Lagoon to enjoy the healing Icelandic mineral waters on your way to the airport for your flight home.
Day 1 - Reykjavík
Arrive at your luxurious, modern hotel in the center of Reykjavik. Take in a quick lunch at a local cafe or in the hotel restaurant. Enjoy sightseeing around the city this afternoon and evening. Hit the town tonight for Iceland's world-reknowned nightlife!
The Nordica is hip and modern, located in the center of Reykjavik. Daily buffet breakfast is included. The hotel features a relaxing spa and gourmet cuisine.
Day 2 - Reykjavík
Spend your first full day in Iceland renting a car and driving the Golden Circle to view some of Iceland's most spectacular natural wonders. Or maybe you'd rather visit a glacier, or a local distillery. Whatever you choose, you'll discover how beautiful and special Iceland is.
Your rental car will be delivered to your hotel, and you can get out of town to see some of the spectacular landscapes and natural wonders of Iceland, including the largest waterfall in Europe and the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the North American and European tectonic plates pull apart slowly each year.
