Iceland's Magical Northern Lights
The “land of fire and ice” is a place of many wonders, including the rare opportunity to see the spectacular aurora borealis – or northern lights. This tour will bring you on a search for that once-in-a-lifetime moment. Take an exhilarating evening northern lights cruise. On three evenings in Vik – on foot, or with the assistance of our motor coach and driver – you will venture out away from the light pollution to where the views of the sky are ideal (the northern lights can be viewed only in clear skies). Travel to the “Golden Circle,” home to many of Iceland’s most renowned natural wonders. Spend time at Thingvellir National Park, the nation’s most historic area. Gaze at the spectacular Gullfoss waterfall – one of the world’s most incredible cascades. At the Lava Exhibition Center, learn about Iceland’s volcanic history and its impact on daily life. Explore Skógar Museum and see traditional turf-built homes. Walk on a black volcanic sand beach. See Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon filled with floating icebergs. Relax in the warm, mineral-rich water of the natural geothermal pool, the Blue Lagoon. Spend your evenings gazing at the night sky in search of the elusive and dazzling northern lights.
