Iceland Northern Lights Holiday

Imagine swimming in blue, steamy warm waters outdoors in the chilly air surrounded by a mixture of glacial and volcanic scenery. Perhaps one of Iceland's most treasured possessions is its Blue Lagoon, a small lake that is heated geothermally by underground magma and containing minerals that many say have special healing powers. It is a country of contrasts which makes our Iceland Northern Lights holidays so unique and distinctive. Other things to see and do during the day include a Jeep Safari across lava fields and trips to see geysers and waterfalls in the rugged volcanic landscapes. Take a guided tour of Reykjavik, the northernmost capital city and for something a little more adventurous try out a glacier walk where you can climb down crevasses and crawl through tunnels in the ice. After all that, don't forget to look skywards in case the enchanting and eerie Northern Lights make an appearance after nightfall.

Iceland is an island located in the North Atlantic Ocean and volcanically created on the boundary between two tectonic plates known as the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. This gives the island its intriguing geological activity of earthquakes, periodic volcanic eruptions, geysers and gorges. As well as this, its high latitude means there are glaciers in the mountainous areas with glacial rivers running down through the lowlands to the sea where the coastline is scattered with glacial fjords. For this reason, the country is commonly known as ‘the land of fire and ice'. Our Iceland Northern Lights holidays give you the chance to not only discover this strange and wondrous country but also to have the opportunity of seeing the fascinating Aurora Borealis. Sweeping ribbons or curtains ripple across the night sky in a multitude of colours, illuminating the darkness with an eerie glow. The lights most frequently occur between October and April and so our tours are scheduled to coincide with this period. The lights are best seen from northerly latitudes but can sometimes be seen from as far south as Scotland. Iceland is situated just below the Arctic Circle and so is a good place to catch a glimpse of these captivating phenomena.
