Package Highlights

  • Experience the breadth of Iceland’s incredible natural phenomena – ancient volcanic rock formations, black pebble beaches, glacial lakes and geothermal lagoons.
  • Travel with an experienced local leader who will explain geographic features, share stories of Iceland’s history and folklore and narrate your nightly sky watching with the science behind aurora borealis.
  • Stay in the stylish Fosshotel offering up priceless views of the surrounding landscape, modern comforts and an excellent restaurant that uses the freshest Icelandic produce.
  • Embrace two incredible Exclusive Experiences; a home cooked dinner on a local horse farm, and a relaxing dip in the wonderfully scenic Krauma thermal pools.
  • This trip is designed to give you the best chance at seeing the spectacular dancing lights of the aurora borealis in the northern sky.

Is this trip right for you?

  • The northern lights are most visible during the colder months, when temperatures can reach -15 °C or below and snow is very likely. It’s important to bring appropriate clothing such as a down jacket, thermals layers, gloves and suitable footwear.
  • Many locations on this itinerary are remote, which means a few long drives. This is a great opportunity to enjoy the scenery and spend some time getting to know your fellow travellers.
  • While there is a strong chance of seeing the northern lights in all their colourful glory (thanks to the high latitude, time of year and itinerary), nature makes no guarantees. On the rare occasion that your leader must alter the itinerary due to adverse weather, alternative activities will be offered.
