Hi, we are planning our Reykjavik break between 2-6 of Jan. The plan is:
Day 1 -city, whales and Northern Lights
Day 2 - Golden Circle + Fontana
Day 3 - Blue Lagoon
We don't plan to drive but take tours. I am wondering whether to book whales and Northern Lights (by boat) in advance or will it be possible to buy those on the day of the tours? How busy January is? It's mentioned that boat tours depend on the weather and I dont want to risk it.
Also, is it better to go by boat or bus to see Northern Lights?
I also really want to take South Shore tour but then it means sacrificing something, do you think it's worth to swap whales for South Shore? I guess we can see most of the city on the day of arrival/evenings? Thank you.
