Iceland – Northern Lights
Iceland – Northern Lights OverviewThis holiday gives you the chance to experience the incredible natural wonders that Iceland offers, whilst also providing exceptional Northern Lights viewing opportunities. Iceland is an island unlike any other; with lava fields, hot spring lagoons, glaciers, volcanoes and geysers all while searching for the Aurora.
Iceland is known as the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’ with good reason. Volcanoes, glaciers, geysers and hot springs practically litter the south of the island and make it one of the most spectacular places in the world to witness the wonders of Mother Nature.
Iceland also boasts an enviable location within the Aurora Zone and with a dedicated super jeep tour and two nights at the famed Northern Lights hotspot, Hotel Ranga, your chances of seeing the Northern Lights are very high.
Your base for the first two nights is the boutique Hotel Óðinsvé which is situated in the heart of Reykjavik. This is the ideal place from which to explore the vibrant city with galleries, cafés and shops on your doorstep and a range of additional activities which can be included (please see our ‘Personalise’ section for more information). For the final two nights, you will be at the world famous Hotel Ranga, a lovely countryside base renowned for its incredible food, hot tubs and Aurora viewing.
The activities on this trip have been designed to highlight the natural wonders of the island. During days three and four the group will have the services of a driver guide who will show you as many of Iceland’s natural wonders as possible. You will be able to marvel at the waterfalls of Gullfoss and Skogafoss, the erupting hot springs at Great Geysir, Thingvellir National Park, the Silfra Fissure, the infamous Eyjafjallajokull Volcano and the Myrdalsjokull Glacier to name just some of the highlights..
You will enjoy an Aurora super jeep tour from Reykjavik, which will take you far beyond the confines of the city and the sodium glare of its lights and into the darkness of the surrounding countryside. Your Aurora guide will determine your destination based on the weather and Aurora forecasts and hopefully, with the mobility of your vehicle, you’ll be able to track down a spectacular display.
We love Iceland because it is unlike any other location that we offer. Here at The Aurora Zone, we understand that seeing the Northern Lights is usually everyone's top priority, but on this trip there are so many other natural phenomena to witness, from volcanoes and glaciers to waterfalls and geysers, that you are sure to return home in awe of the sights that you have seen regardless of whether you catch a display of the Northern Lights.
