Discover the beauty of Iceland and see the incredible Northern Lights. 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 destination with natural wonders galore, including the magical aurora borealis, aka the Northern Lights.
All of our Iceland Group Tours 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. Not far out of Rekyjavik is the famous Blue Lagoon - a haven of hot springs in the middle of a lava field!
On our tours to Iceland you'll have the opportunity to meet the indigenous Icelandic horse and learn about its famous fifth gait. There's plenty of interesting experiences too - take a dip in the famous geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon, learn how to find the Northern Lights, boil your breakfast eggs in the hot springs of the Icelandic countryside and try a drop of Brennivin 'Black Death' schnapps in the bars of Reykjavik.
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.
All our Iceland and Northern Lights Group Tours are escorted by expert English speaking Icelandic guides, with the services of specialist guides at some sights, exploring the country's incredible landscapes by day and watching the skies each night, to see the beautiful Northern Lights.
Our carefully planned itineraries take many of Iceland’s highlights and some hidden gems. You'll stay in a range of accommodation from simple guesthouses to 4 star hotels and spend your days out and about with free time in the evenings.
If you're looking for a long weekend away, go in search of the Northern Lights on our 5 day Land of the Northern Lights tour, which is great value for money too. For a week-long holiday, our most popular Northern Lights Exploration tour which includes a stunning fjord cruise and shark tasting is highly recommended, or if you are after a bit more luxury, then our premium Northern Lights in Style tour is ideal.
Our guide Hilke was such a trooper, we couldn't have had a better guide. She was out looking for the northern lights every night for hours for us and getting soaked leading the few brave travellers behind a huge waterfall without any complaint. She was always enthusiastic and ready with a fact, story or joke. Hilke really does deserves all the praise in the world! The tour was also fantastic, I felt like we got to see a good part of the west and south Icelandic coast without spending too much time travelling by road. Accommodation was very comfortable and I would recommend this tour to anyone.”
