See the Northern Lights in Iceland

The Northern Lights is one of the greatest natural shows on earth – and if seeing them is high on your wish list, we've got an extraordinary active short break in one of the most fascinating countries in the world: Iceland.
Discover Iceland’s ‘Golden Circle’ on a fantastic 3 day trip when the days are short and the nights are full of possibilities to view the famous (but elusive!) Northern Lights:
  • Joining in Reykjavik, this 3-day mini break is packed full of adventures and highlights, from explosive geysers and impressive waterfalls
  • Explore the fault lines of Thingvellir National Park, which has served as a filming location for four series of the multi-award winning ‘Game of Thrones’ TV series

  • Admire the shapes and colours of the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, the deepest lake in Iceland; enormous icebergs parade on the lagoon as huge blocks of ice break off the glacier
  • Discover an ice cave in the heart of Vatnajökull, the largest by volume glacier in Europe, covering 8 per cent of Iceland’s landmass

  • Challenge yourself on the last day with a hike, aided by crampons, on the Sólheimajökull glacier
