ICE & LIGHTS

Travel from Reykjavik to Iceland’s glacial lagoon, largest icecap, volcano area, geysers and frozen waterfalls, staying in remote locations for the best chance to view the Northern Lights

The eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull volcano in 2010 awakened great interest in Iceland’s incredible natural forces. Images of the Northern Lights above the erupting volcano were a reminder that Iceland is one of the best places to view this amazing natural phenomena above its dramatic landscapes – especially when staying outside the capital, Reykjavik.

The glacial lagoon of Jökulsárlón with icebergs gleaming white, cobalt blue or jade green (fans of James Bond will remember it from ‘Die Another Day’), lies in Vatnajökull National Park, which includes the island’s largest icecap (8% of Iceland and the largest outside polar regions).
