Private jets generally cannot fly on one tank of fuel from North America to Europe. With a stopover necessary, Iceland—a quick six-hour flight from the East Coast and Midwest, with two airports from which to choose—is a great destination to spend a few hours or a few days. Not only are Keflavik International Airport and Reykjavík Airports both small hubs, allowing flyers to circumvent larger, more congested gateways where there is little to do but wait in a terminal, a layover in Iceland is rich with adventure close by.
Now through October 30, 2016, Iceland Naturally is offering private jets a complimentary VIP Refueling Package when they stopover, and exclusive access to handpicked travel partners who can custom-craft luxury experiences.
A mere 20 minutes from Keflavik International Airport is the Blue Lagoon, a state-of-the-art geothermal pool and one of National Geographic’s “25 Wonders of the World.” While there, jetsetters can indulge in an assortment of skin-soothing experiences ranging from a silica mud mask to a waterfall bath, rejuvenate in an exclusive lounge with private amenities, and devour freshly made fare at Lava, which is built into a stunning lava cliff and overlooks the lagoon. Or, elsewhere, visitors can jump on a private Fire and Ice helicopter tour to explore nearby hot springs, lava fields, and the scenic coastline of the Reykjanes Peninsula, with landings on a glacier and old volcano.
Reykjavík Airport is located a mile and a quarter from the world’s most northerly capital Reykjavík, which boasts colorful buildings, cozy cafés, world-class restaurants, fine museums and galleries, friendly people, and exciting nightlife. In just two or three hours, visitors can enjoy a private tour of the city including the Hallgrimskirkja church, presidential residence at Bessastadir, fish market in Hafnarfjordur, and open-air Arbaer Museum or taste test Reykjavik’s burgeoning culinary scene where chefs at top restaurants are proudly serving dishes comprised of fresh, Icelandic ingredients in a contemporary, Nordic style.
From cruising past geysers, waterfalls, and volcanos in a super-jeep to sleeping under the Northern Lights in a luxury tent, surfing glaciers on a snowmobile, seeing giant whales in their natural environment or just relaxing in a hot spring, Iceland Naturally’s top travel partners can craft bragging-rights itineraries to suit personal interests and schedules. As an extra incentive, the first 30 private jets, which land at either Icelandic airport through October 31, 2016, can sign up for a complimentary VIP Refueling Package, which includes:
• Two signature Blue Lagoon products
• A bottle of Brennivin, Iceland’s signature liquor
• A six-pack of award-winning Borg Brugghus beer, Leifur
• One case of Icelandic Glacial water, sourced directly from the 5,000-year-old Ölfus Spring
