There are few better places than Iceland to hunt 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 viewing season lasting from late August to as late as mid-April. 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. Add up to three additional nights in Iceland for even more free time to explore Reykjavík or wherever else your curiosity leads you. Let our exciting day tours lead the way!
