A magical escape to Iceland, including a Northern Lights tour plus optional Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon transfers, South Shore tour, and more

You’ve seen the pictures – now experience it for yourself. In the past few years, Iceland has soared in popularity as a don’t-miss destination, due in no small part to its magical, mythical landscape, full of jaw-dropping vistas, steamy springs and sprawling glaciers – as well as its supporting role on Game of Thrones. This holiday provides the perfect way to see it all, with accommodation in Hafnarfjordur’s Hotel Vellir - a friendly base just outside Reykjavik, which offers a fitness centre, a bar and a chance to enjoy mountain and Atlantic views.

A real highlight of your trip, you’ll have one excursion to eagerly anticipate: spend some time seeking out the elusive Northern Lights, an unforgettable experience to treasure long after you’ve returned home. If you like, you might opt to wind down with a Blue Lagoon visit (admission excluded), marvel at the majestic landscapes of the Golden Circle, and perhaps even watch dolphins and whales on a scenic cruise. You could even opt to add a South Shore adventure to the list, for a chance to take in surreal sights - from volcanic black-sand beaches to staggering cliffs.

Good to know

Please be aware that the Northern Lights are a naturally occurring phenomenon, so whilst we hope you'll get to see them, we can't guarantee they'll oblige.

Accommodation

Your accommodation is minimalist in design, but generously appointed, holding a shower, a heap of towels, a workspace and a TV. The square footage is 215, and a Wi-Fi connection is complimentary. Floor-to-ceiling windows afford views of the surroundings and allow in tons of outside light.

Dining

Treat yourself to wonderful cuisine at Vellir Bistro, which opens daily from 6pm-9pm and serves comforting burgers, fish and chips, and salads. There's also a bar on site, which is open every day from 11am-1am.

Wellness

Should you wish to work up a sweat after a day of sightseeing, you'll find a convenient fitness centre on site. Please note that a day pass may be purchased at reception.

Location

Hotel Vellir is a comfy, simply decorated base near Asvallalaug’s thermal pool and hiking trails, in a town – Hafnarfjordur – with dramatic volcanic formations and caves, holding a bus station just 20 minutes from Reyjkavik. Lush green hills and mountains are in view here, as is the Atlantic Ocean.

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
