'Ice' Land of the Northern Lights

Icelandic winters are a wonderland of hot springs and frozen waterfalls, glaciers and growling volcanoes, and the ethereal Aurora Borealis dancing in dark skies. This five-night tour takes you through the unique topography of ‘the land of ice & fire'

With 70% of its terrain uninhabitable by humans, Iceland is daunting in its eerily empty interior, and
haunting in its supremely scenic landscapes. On the Arctic Circle edge, with lava fields and steaming
geyser spouts, icicles clinging to waterfall cliffs, and coastal hamlets hunkered down in weather-
beaten bays, its ostensibly inhospitable terrain is both curse and blessing, as the nation adds Man’s
creativity to Nature’s creation to maximise the geothermal assets, heating the homes of its residents
with the gift of the ground beneath them. Focused on the country’s southwestern area, this tour is a
thrilling journey through awe-inspiring landscapes. Bookended by stays in the world’s most northerly
capital, Reykjavik, it takes you to Vik on the south shore; to little villages on the Snaefellsnes
peninsula; the high rim of Grábrók crater, the deep lava-tube of Vatnshellir cave, and the thermal
pools of Hvammsvik Hot Springs. With dark night skies come the bright Northern Lights. Brilliant
along the ocean edge, where light pollution is minimal, the elusive phenomenon cannot be
guaranteed, but Iceland offers the best chance to catch them.
