Our spring package brings you to Reykjavík for a long weekend during April, May or June. While in Iceland you can experience all the joys of spring on the unmissable Golden Circle tour of Iceland’s famous geysers, the stunning Gullfoss waterfall and the enchanting Þingvellir national park as it wakes from its winter slumber and nobody should leave Iceland without visiting the Blue Lagoon spa.
April, May and June are a very special time in Iceland, marked out by the return of millions of migratory birds and the frenzied growth of plants. April is early spring and the trees and flowers will not be in their full glory; but the month still has some night time and provides the very last chance to see the northern lights, if you’re lucky. In May and June nature shows us a chaotic and beautiful riot of growth and nesting; but it will no longer get properly dark at night and the aurora are off the table.
These months are beautiful. WOW travel’s amazing offer is the same throughout. So the choice really is yours!
So, with a special offer, an airline, a hotel and things to do which are all great (you might even say ‘WOW’), this really is the time to book.
See you in Reykjavik soon!

Detailed description of the excursions:
The Golden Circle is undoubtedly Iceland’s most famous day tour, as it includes three of the country’s most recognisable attractions in one simple 300km round trip.
On this trip you will be treated to hot water, flying water, deep water, clear water, fast water and tumbling white water. And all the while remaining firmly on dry land.
At Þingvellir National Park you will see unbelievably clear, deep blue water in Peningagjá, into which you might choose to throw a coin or two and watch how long they take to sink to the deep bottom. You may also see Lake Þingvallavatn, Iceland’s biggest, which is world famous as a dive site due to its spookily clear water. Þingvellir is also famous as the site of the founding of modern democracy about a thousand years ago, for the fact that the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are slowly pulling the place apart, and for being the place where Icelanders executed their accused ‘witches’ by drowning. It is also famous for its natural beauty, plants, birds, animals and the Öxarárfoss waterfall.
But Öxarárfoss is no match for Gullfoss. Gullfoss is one of the most impressive natural phenomena in Europe: a huge, roaring staircase of a waterfall, throwing up clouds of spray and succeeding enviably at making us humans feel very, very small indeed.
The Golden Circle tour also takes in Geysir – the geyser which gave its name to create the word geyser. Ironically your chances of seeing Geysir erupt while you are at Geysir these days are extremely slim; but its little brother Strokkur is a couple of footsteps away and throws scalding water up to 30 metres high every few minutes. While you’re waiting there’s plenty of other hot springs and bubbling mud pools to keep you entertained.
Departure: 09.00 with pick-up available from all major hotels and guesthouses in Reykjavík around 30 minutes before departure.
Duration: 8 - 9 hours
Level of difficulty: Easy
Included: Coach fare,guide and entrance to the Geysir museum.
Not included: Lunch and refreshments.
Relax at the Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon is not to be missed while you are in Iceland. The Blue Lagoon's world famous warm waters contain a unique cocktail of natural mineral ingredients like mineral salts, silica and blue-green algae which help you relax and unwind while the Blue Lagoon white silica mud gently cleanses and exfoliates your skin.
This tour includes coach travel to the Blue Lagoon from Reykjavík or Keflavík International Airport and entry to the Blue Lagoon, followed by more coach travel to your choice of Reykjavík or the airport. Departure and return times are flexible, with as many as 11 coaches a day in high summer.
So while the waters relax body and soul, the coach company ensures there’s no stress in getting there and back. Pick-up and drop-off at your hotel is also on offer.
Included: Return bus fare and admission to the Blue Lagoon.
