Gay Travel Deal to Iceland’s Gay Pride in August

Reykjavik Excursions is   offering a special package for revelers visiting Reykjavik ICELAND  next month for gay pride. The Icelandic gay society is small but very active and a ‘gay scene’ exists only in Reykjavík. Last year over 40,000  turned out for Pride!  The official program for this years event can be viewed online .

Reykjavik gay pride is expected to be especially prideful and extravagant this year as it celebrates Iceland’s recently-approved gay marriage law. The parade and festival takes place over four days, August 5-8.

Book travel now to be a part of this historic event. The travel deal includes a three-night stay at the chic Hilton Reykjavik Nordica hotel and A Sense of Reykjavik tasting tour. The Hilton Reykjavik Nordica hotel is situated in the city’s financial district and just minutes from the city center by complimentary shuttle bus. It features a traditional Nordic spa and gourmet dining in its VOX restaurant. – Iceland is all about  Spa’s, Wellness and the famous Blue Lagoon!

The tour, managed by Reykjavik Excursions , includes a guided walking tour of the city center and stops at three light gourmet shops. The tour ends by the often-busy fishing harbor.

Iceland’s gay marriage law went into effect last month and replaces the country’s system of registered partnerships for gay and lesbian couples first enacted in 1996.  Lots of Gay Iceland News and Resources can be found at  GAY ICE .
