Experience the magical northern lights in Iceland

The Aurora Borealis, one of nature’s most spectacular light displays, is a natural phenomenon which is most often sighted in Iceland between late August and the end of March. 

NASA scientists have predicted that the best possible conditions for seeing the northern lights take place in the current decade, so it's an especially great time to take a trip to Iceland.

But it's not just the northern lights that make Iceland the best winter holiday destination. During your visit, spend time snowmobiling on glaciers, visit the steaming geysers or relax in the geothermal Blue Lagoon. 

You can customise your trip by selecting additional day tours, such as the popular Golden Circle tour, or a horse riding tour through the volcanic landscapes that characterise Iceland. Plus you will have time to enjoy the cosy cafes, lively nightlife and the cool Nordic culture of Reykjavik.

Day 1Welcome to Iceland!

Check in at your hotel in Reykjavik and get comfortable for your stay in Iceland. Take a stroll and explore the charm and allure of Old Town Reykjavik and enjoy the Nordic vibe of the town. There's plenty of lovely restaurants to choose from for a bite to eat. Check out one of the many tours available for booking, including whale watching and horse riding. 

Day 2Go hunting for the northern lights

Spend the day at your leisure. Northern Lights Hunt tour is booked for late evening and takes you to the best viewing location, as decided by Mother Nature. The Auroras might appear just outside of Reykjavik or perhaps from the middle of a lava field an hour's drive into the countryside. Every tour is unique, which is part of the adventure and your guide will use the most up-to-date weather and solar activity reports to plan your route. Coaches are equipped with free Wi-Fi. Departures range from 9 to 10pm, depending on the time of year, with hotel pick-ups beginning at 30 minutes prior. The Northern Lights are a natural phenomena and their appearance cannot be guaranteed.

Day 3You choose what you do today

It is not just the Northern Lights that make Iceland the best winter holiday destination. You can customise your trip with day tours from the popular Golden Circle tour to snorkelling a fissure between two tectonic plates or spend time snowmobiling on glaciers, visit the steaming geysers or relax in the geothermal Blue Lagoon. You will also have time to enjoy the cosy cafes and lively local nightlife.

Day 4 (note: you can extend your trip!)Explore more of Iceland

Extend your holiday and have an extra day in Reykjavik or the surrounding area. There is plenty to see and do within the city centre, or you could choose to venture out and experience the breathtaking Icelandic nature for yourself.

Your final dayFarewell (for now)

It's time to head to Keflavik for your return flight home with Icelandair. We look forward to welcoming you onboard again soon!
