There are few better places than Iceland for hunting for the northern lights. Have you seen them yet?
The Aurora Borealis, one of nature’s most spectacular exhibitions of beauty, is a natural phenomenon with the season for most likely sightings from late August to end of March. NASA scientists have predicted the best possible conditions for seeing the Northern Lights in the current decade.
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 with day tours from the popular Golden Circle tour to horse riding through a landscape of volcanoes and lava fields. Plus you will have time to enjoy the cosy cafes, lively nightlife and the cool Nordic culture of Reykjavik.

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.
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.
