  • Can you arrange whale watching trips and trips into town to explore?

    Hi, We used to have a local whale watching company that offered pick-up/drop-off to our hotel but they are not operating anymore. You would need to book with the companies in Reykjavik and you can do that via our site. They do however not offer pick-up/drop-off services but if you book a tour at 13:00 then you can take the bus from the Blue Lagoon in good time to be in Reykjavik. We have regular bus tours from the Blue Lagoon to Reykjavik and back. If you use Reykjavik Excursion then the first bus leaves the Blue Lagoon at 11:15 am and then every hours after. Back to Blue Lagoon on the hour from Reykjavik. Destination Blue Lagoon is also an option and their first bus departs from the Blue Lagoon at 09:15 am, but please always check the schedule of both these companies. Third option is a taxi. We do have many options of excursions and activities that offer pick-up / drop-off service and you can find them and book via our site, using TourDesk services. This way we can offer our guests to enjoy all the major excursions, Iceland has to offer and in most cases it is easier process than being at a city hotel as in the city you will have to find a pick-up station that is normally a walk from the hotel. This being said, we can assist you in booking your tours and activities but in some cases, like whale watching, we don´t have pickup/drop-off services but there are ways to get you to and from as explained above. We do hope that this answer helps you. Regards, The NLI Team

  • What is the possibility of seeing northern lights in November here ?

    Hi, To see the northern lights we need 1) darkness, 2) activity from the sun and 3) clear sky. We do have enough of darkness in November but we are dependent on having clear sky (no overcast) and then nature will also have to provide us with some sun activities. The best time to view is from October to end of March, due to the darkness we have. Then we just have to think positively and hope for the best. Regards, The NLI Team

  • If I check in 2nd of February, am I able to see the Northern light from this hotel? do you provide free shuttle from airport?

    Hi, the northern lights can never be guaranteed as this is nature at its best. That is the beauty with the lights. In February we have enough darkness which is a key element. But we need clear sky and activity from the sun, as the lights are in fact eruption from the sun travelling by the magnetic fields of the northern pole, in our case. These two elements is pure nature so we can never guarantee that you will see the lights. We do however have a very good location to enjoy the lights, if the show is on. We do not offer a free shuttle from KEF airport, but we pay part of the taxi for our guests. If our hotel guests book the airport taxi via us, one way for normal taxi (1-4 pax) is ISK 5000 while the market price is ISK 8000 or roughly 37% discount to our guests. Bigger taxi is little bit more expensive. Once you have booked a room with us, you send us your flight number and we will arrange the taxi driver to wait for you in the arrival hall and take you to our hotel. We do hope that we have answered your question and do hope to see you in February. The NLI Team

  • I’ll be arriving around 6am September 28, can I check in early that day?

    Our check-out is at 11:00 am so we are dependent on guests from previous night checking out and some time to clean the room. So we never promise but always try our best. To be 100% sure to have a room so early, you will have to book a pre night.
