'Ice' Land of the Northern Lights

A four-night break in the legendary landscapes of the Land of Ice & Fire, this tour focuses on Iceland’s southwestern region, seeing the geysers of the Golden Circle, staying in Reykjavik and the scenic surrounds of Selfoss, and visiting villages on the ocean’s edge

With a unique topography of lava fields and hot springs, glaciers, geysers, and growling volcanos, Iceland combines Nature’s creation with Man’s creativity to maximise its geothermal assets, heating the homes of its residents with the gift of the ground beneath them. With 70% of its harsh terrain uninhabitable by humans, its eerily empty but supremely scenic landmass is the meeting point where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are exposed. Coastal villages hunker down in weather-beaten bays; icicles and crystal frosts cling to the cliffs of winter waterfalls; and the dark skies, undiluted by city lights, put on their show of the breathtaking Aurora Borealis. Of course, this natural phenomenon cannot be guaranteed but, on the edge of the Arctic Circle, Iceland gives you the greatest chance to view the Northern Lights. This journey is bookended by the world’s most northerly capital, Reykjavik, a jauntily multi-coloured town, encompassing cafés, classic galleries, and quirky street art. We tour the Golden Circle to the geological wonders of Thingvellir National Park; spend two nights in the remote and pristine surroundings of Selfoss; and visit Vik on the south shore, its white, wooden church an iconic landmark.
