Overview

Experience the best of Iceland’s winter! Our new Northern Lights Exploration series are designed to include a lot of Iceland and aim to maximize the chances of seeing the elusive Northern Lights. In addition to 7 nights of accommodations with breakfast, the program includes our special six night Northern Lights Academy with 6 evenings of presentations, lectures and guided tours at spots that are likely to offer a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights. This is a fully escorted coach tour with guaranteed departures from September to April which can help you experience the winter at its most Icelandic. Both during the day and after dark, as you head to the countryside in West and Southeast Iceland, you will explore the regions from Snæfellsnes peninsula to Vatnajökull glacier to search for the Aurora Borealis away from the big city lights.

NORTHERN LIGHTS: The Northern Lights are in the northern sky from September through April but are only visible when the sky is clear and free of clouds. The tour is dependant on weather and therefore sightings are not guaranteed. Like many of natures wonders, it’s ephemeral – they may be visible, they may appear for a bit and then be gone (it is not a TV show that you can just turn on and off). But it’s worth the patience required. Because they’re a winter event, you need to be prepared to wait outside, while looking for them. It’s best to dress very warmly, in layers, with good footwear, gloves, hats and whatever else will make you comfortable while you await this truly outstanding event. The northern lights can be pretty spectacular, and for  the best photos we recommend using a tripod.
