Iceland Northern Lights

Travelling to Iceland between the months of September and mid-April offers the possibility of witnessing the northern lights and we offer several specialist itineraries created for those with a keen interest in doing so. Also known as the aurora borealis, to be lucky enough to see the winter skies alight with curious green and yellow streaks dancing overhead, is unforgettable.
