Overview

Our Northern Lights Exploration series are designed to include the highlights of Iceland and aim to maximise the chances of seeing the elusive Northern Lights, head to the countryside.

What to expect?

In addition to a seven night stay with breakfast, this program includes our special six-night Northern Lights Academy, a combination of evening presentations, lectures, film and guided lookouts for the Aurora Borealis the Northern Lights. Experience Icelandic winter as good as it gets.


Head to the countryside: from the regions of Snæfellsnes Peninsula in the west to the Vatnajökull glacier in the south-east. Profit to search for the Aurora Borealis away from the big city lights.

Highlights and Experiences:
• Track record of 85-98% chance of seeing the Northern Lights
• See amazing Icelandic landscapes mixed with soft adventure and cultural experiences during the day. Most nights we stay in the countryside, away from light pollution, in order to maximise the chances to see the Northern Lights
• Climb a volcano crater and walk between two continental tectonic plates
• Visit a traditional shark farmer, turf farmsteads and churches
• Relax in the Blue Lagoon and learn about living next to Eyjafjallajökull volcano
• See Icelandic horses, taste freshly baked hot spring bread and enjoy a fjord cruise
• Six evenings Northern Lights Academy
• Program offered in two group sizes: maximum 16 or 45 persons 
• New: Optional ice cave tour at Vatnajökull glacier for departures between November 15th and March 15

Daily driving:Total mileage without airport transfer is about 1.585 km (983 miles) which is an average of 265 km (164 miles) per day. You spend about 3,5 hours per day on the bus, depending on road conditions, traffic and daily distances. On some days the driving might be longer than on some other days.

Extra costs for dinners to be paid at the hotels: Fixed 2-course dinners with fish, meat or vegetarian main courses are available at the hotels starting at ISK 7.200 (about EUR 63) per person per night. Note, that the country hotels do not offer a la carte meals and there are no other restaurants nearby. Paying for a 2-course dinner directly at the hotel is less expensive than to have it included in the tour package.

NOTE: Itineraries may be subject to change at short notice during severe weather conditions and certain outdoor activities/day trips may be cancelled during the winter season in Iceland. In these rare cases, where situations of force majeure apply, excursions/activities cannot be refunded but the local guides will try their best to find reasonable alternatives where and whenever possible.
