Iceland: Iceland Northern Lights Holidays
Witness the ghostly radiance of the Aurora Borealis
This short trip to Iceland’s vibrant capital, Reykjavík, lets you explore so much of the country in just a few days, however if you are looking for a longer holiday, you can extend your stay. An Iceland Northern Lights holiday guides you to some of the most favourable locations where you are more likely to witness these stunningly beautiful phenomena. A Super Jeep safari takes you into the wilderness, over rugged lava fields and away from the glare of artificial light, yet we cannot guarantee sightings due to their unpredictable nature.

Take a fascinating city tour of some of the most illustrious sites such as the architecturally inspired Hallgrímskirkja and Lake Tjornin which lies in the centre of the city and attracts a wide variety of water birds and wildlife.
