Home to some of the greatest natural wonders on the planet, Iceland’s volcanoes, geysers, hot springs and glaciers offer visitors a topography begging to be explored. Couple this with an excellent Northern Lights record owing to its enviable location within the Aurora Zone and it is easy to see why Iceland is often chosen as a destination over Finland, Sweden and Norway.
The locations we have included, highlight Iceland’s natural wonders and explore the capital city, Reykjavik, Akureyri in the north, the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and the South Shore.
The South Shore features some of Iceland’s most well-known natural wonders and our Northern Lights tours to this region take in many of them, such as the Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls, the Myrdalsjokull Glacier and the Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
Our Northern Lights Cruise and Island Highlights holiday starts in Reykjavik and visits the Snaefellsnes Peninsula before moving on to Akureyri in the far north. Snaefellsnes is often referred to as ‘Iceland in miniature’ and the reason becomes apparent as you venture around the varied landscape. Akureyri lies close to the Lake Mývatn Nature Reserve and visitors can enjoy the bubbling mud pools and lava formations of Dimmuborgir.
Explore the Golden Circle during our Reykjavik, the Golden Circle and the Northern Lights Inn holiday or stay at the splendid Hotel Ranga during our Natural Wonders and Northern Lights holiday.
Our trips include some time in the capital Reykjavik where you have time to enjoy the vibrant cafés and restaurants of this buzzing capital.
