Depart for Iceland

DAY 2 - Arrive in Iceland, Northern Lights Evening Tour* 
Arrive in Iceland, "Land of the Midnight Sun" and transfer independently to your hotel. Most flights arrive in the early morning and your room may not be ready for you. In this case, leave your luggage with the concierge. Spend the balance of the day at leisure to explore Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, surrounded by incredible landscapes and countless natural wonders. Or perhaps take an optional city tour of Reykjavik, which includes visits to the Pearl, the Northern Lights Center, and the new Harpa Concert & Conference Hall. Gain valuable insight into Icelandic society and how Reykjavik has developed from a small fishing village into a modern capital. Later tonight, search the skies for the Northern Lights, (Aurora Borealis) among the most spectacular phenomena on earth. The Northern Lights originate from the sun, where large explosions and electronic storms throw charged solar particles deep into space. This solar wind is caught by the Earth's magnetic field on the south and north poles. The solar particles collide with atmospheric gases and create this wonderful light effect. This evening, hope to see these lights swirling and dancing across the sky, endlessly changing color, shape and size*
