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?Read More

Our Iceland and Northern Lights trips are escorted by expert English-speaking Icelandic guides, with the services of specialist guides at some sights providing unrivaled knowledge. The varied itineraries take in many of Iceland’s popular highlights as well as lesser-known sites. You'll stay in a range of accommodation from simple guest houses to 4 star hotels and spend your days out and about with free time in the evenings when, if you're lucky, you'll witness the spectacular Northern Lights!
Iceland Cruises to Greenland
Fly into Greenland from Reykjavik and board the s/v Rembrandt van Rijn for an 8 day cruise of either South or East Greenland. Our cruises take you to some of Greenland’s most historic and beautiful areas. The inflatable zodiacs on board help for us to get closer to land and by foot we’ll attempt to get as close to the massive ice cap that sits in the centre of Greenland taking up over 80% of the island. read more
Greenland is a land like no other. This huge island has just 57’000 inhabitants and none of the towns and cities are connected by road making sailing one of the best options for seeing the most of this fascinating destination. Our cruises in Greenland include daily lectures, all meals on board and a great mix of passengers.

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.
Recommended Places to Visit in Iceland
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
