You will transfer to a hotel in central Reykjavik and spend your afternoon embracing the Icelandic atmosphere and spellbinding views of looming snowy mountains across the Labrador Sea. In the evening, you may wander the busy streets intersecting red and blue-roofed buildings to coastal restaurants overlooking the seascape where you will tuck into Iceland’s iconic Atlantic seafood delicacies.
