Iceland Tours & the Northern Lights
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 Reykjavik 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.

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.

Fantastic, loved every minute, we got to see so much more than i expected i would. The guide was very imformative and i learnt so much about where we were visiting, the people and the land. I enjoyed how we got to see extra bits as they were close by so would of been silly to miss. The bus driver was also excellent seeing as the roads were very difficult due to weather conditions. Would go back in a heartbeat!”
