Travel to Iceland and witness the Northern Lights

Discover the beauty of Iceland and see the incredible Northern Lights on tour with us. From Reykjavik, the most northerly capital in the world, to the bubbling geysers, thundering waterfalls and beautiful landscapes of the Golden Circle, Iceland is an enchanting holiday destination with natural wonders galore, including the magical aurora borealis, aka the Northern Lights. All of our tours of Iceland start and end in Reykjavik, the country's vibrant capital city. Reykjavik is Iceland's cultural and social hub, renowned for its vibrant nightlife and modern living, and yet it retains a wonderful small town charm. You can also head to Greenland on a cruise of the southern and eastern fjords. Spend a week aboard the s/v Rembrandt van Rijn in July or August or for the trip of a life time why not combine both Iceland and Greenland together?

This tour takes you around to all the spots plus more that I wanted to see in Iceland. We had enough time to see everything and learned so much about Iceland. I really enjoyed every moment of the trip.”  

Rachael Cooper • Submitted 16 May 2016

Not enough stars to rate how wonderful this trip was!!

From the moment of enquiry to fare welling the group on the last day has been easy and very pleasant.

All accommodations were clean and comfortable, access to alternate restaurants, supermarkets etc were very accessible (could tell guide was trying to arrive in destinations before supermarkets closed or facilitated stops early in day to accommodate). Tour size was perfect - 25 people, not an overbearing full bus - group was easy to manage, opportunity to meet everyone and was not intrusive (ie could keep to self or mingle - some tours force you to do group bonding activities)

Guide was very knowledgeable, gave us plenty of time at attractions, had a great sense of humour.

This trip had exceeded expectations!”

The Land of Fire and Ice

Known as the 'Land of Fire and Ice', Iceland is a country of contrasts. To the north is the famed Golden Circle, made up of Gulfoss, 'the Golden Falls', Geysir Hot Spring Area and Thingvellir National Park - a wonderland of geothermal and hydro activity. To the south lies quiet fishing villages, black lava beaches, glaciers and the troublesome volcano Eyjafjallajokull, which caused chaos over European skies in 2010.

There's more to Iceland than the Northern Lights with attractive port cities, stunning national parks and gorgeous countryside that's worth visiting in every season. Here's some of our favourite spots in Iceland.

Reykjavik Dusk
World's northern-most capital

Reykjavik

Iceland's capital city is a cosmopolitan mix of top-class restaurants, funky bars and fascinating museums set within colourful buildings and intriguing architectural designs. Reykjavik makes an excellent base for those short on time in Iceland and looking to explore some of the nearby countryside with an attractive setting on the coast and backed by mountains.

Blue Lagoon - Recommended Places
Open-air Geothermal Spa

The Blue Lagoon

Situated in a desolate lava field a short distance from Reykjavik, the man-made Blue Lagoon is Iceland's most visited attraction. Visitors flock here to bathe in the warm, therapeutic waters, believed to aid all kinds of ailments from psoriasis to arthritis, and enjoy the excellent spa facilities that encompass a bar, restaurant and cafe too.

Hella Countryside - Recommended Places
Icelandic countryside

Hella

Sitting on the banks of the attractive river of Ytri-Ranga, the rural town of Hella is surrounded by gorgeous countryside of glistening waterways and expansive green pastures where the scent of horses floats in the air as Hella also happens to be located in Iceland's prime horse-breeding area. It's also an ideal base for spotting the Northern Lights with minimal light pollution and beautiful scenery.

Gullfoss waterfall - Golden Circle - Recommended Places
Waterfalls and geysers

The Golden Circle

Comprised of the spectacular double cascade of Gullfoss, the geothermal valley of Haukadalur famous for its geysers, and the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park which perfectly showcases Iceland's unique geology, the Golden Circle is a popular tourist route and easy to cover in a day's excursion from the capital.

Vatnajokull NP
Protected Wilderness

Vatnajokull National Park

With impressive waterfalls, vast highlands, glacial lakes and volcanic craters, the Vatnajökull National Park is wild Iceland at its best. As fire and ice play against one another, the landscape is being constantly reshaped and is captivating throughout the year, carpeted in snow in the winter and blooming with green in the summer.
