  • Combine lectures, presentations, film and guided searches for the Aurora Borealis

Iceland is the perfect place to enjoy a winter trip full of adventure, icy landscapes and the chance to see the elusive Northern Lights. This short getaway offers insight into Iceland's nature and cultural life, with two nights in Iceland's capital and two nights in South Iceland.

What to expect?

Arriving in Reykjavík the first day you get a chance to explore Iceland's capital on your own. We meet bright and early the next day and start our adventure. The next few days will be full of history, geological wonders and breathtaking scenery. 

There is always a thrilling potential for the night sky to be decorated with the jewels of the amazing Aurora Borealis. Imagine the excitement to search for the most spectacular and natural light show on earth.

Highlights and Experiences:
• Exciting winter tour with 2 nights in Reykjavik and 2 nights in the countryside
• Visit Vatnajökull glacier and Jökulsárlón ice lagoon
• Explore hot springs, lava fields, waterfalls and volcano craters
• Visit to Volcano House in Reykjavík
• 2 evenings with a combination of lectures, presentations, film and guided searches for Aurora Borealis
• Optional Northern Lights fjord cruise

This adventure is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.

This program includes, during 2 evenings, a combination of presentations, lectures, film and guided searches at spots that are likely to offer a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights. All countryside accommodations in this program offer a Northern Lights wake up call for guests that register for that special service at the reception. The tour is dependent on weather and therefore Northern Lights sightings are not guaranteed.

The Northern Lights are in the northern hemisphere from September through April but are only visible when the sky is clear and free of clouds. Like many natural wonders, the Northern Lights are ephemeral – they may be visible, they may appear for a bit and then be gone. However, it is worth the patience which is much required.

Because they are a winter event, you need to be prepared to wait outside while looking for them. It is best to dress very warmly, in layers, with good footwear, gloves, hats and whatever else will make you comfortable while you patiently await this truly outstanding light show.

Please 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, excursions/activities cannot be refunded but the local guides will try their best to find reasonable alternatives where and whenever possible.
