Spend your days bathing in geothermal pools and exploring volcanic landscapes, before venturing deep into the Icelandic countryside where you have the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights.
 
The further you are away from the light pollution of cities, the easier it is to spot the lights.

That's why we base you in traditional cabins on the banks of the River Ranga for two nights. As darkness falls we’ll take you to the ridges of the Helka volcano and the black beaches of the south coast in search of the best seat for the show. Our expert guides will introduce the aurora borealis and share their secrets on the best places to see it.
 
There are more chances for adventure during the day. Take an easy hike across Solheimajokull glacier, find out how Iceland grows its salad leaves in a geothermal greenhouse or meet Iceland’s famous ponies at a horse farm.

In the Blue Lagoon you'll have the chance to bathe in geothermal waters, and on our tour of the Golden Circle see gurgling hot spring geysers and the continental divide.

You’ll start and finish your tour in Reykjavik, the tiny but trendy capital packed with museums, art galleries and some of the best Nordic seafood around.
