'ICE' LAND OF THE NORTHERN LIGHTS

Explore the South Icelandic coast and Reykjavik, Tour the Golden Circle and enjoy a stay ‘in the middle of nowhere’ whilst enjoying Iceland’s natural phenomena

The ultimate highlight of an Icelandic adventure is the Northern Lights; which are created by solar particles attracted to the Pole colliding with the Earth’s atmosphere, so the further north, the greater the chance of viewing them, although a natural phenomenon cannot, of course, be guaranteed. Iceland, with its ecologically friendly environment and lying on the edge of the Arctic Circle, is well placed to observe this light show which is enhanced by the lack of atmospheric pollution – especially at night outside the capital, ‘in the middle of nowhere’.

This relatively small and vastly unpopulated land is perfect for intrepid travellers searching for a unique experience. Iceland, the ‘Land of Ice & Fire’, is a place of living nature and a land of striking contrasts. Nature’s forces have not remained dormant since the land was pushed up from the North Atlantic seabed by volcanic forces that are still alive and active today.

The country is so newly formed in geological terms that 70% of the country is not yet ready for human habitation, being still covered by glaciers, lava fields and harsh terrain – and the local people heat their houses from geothermal sources beneath them.

In winter, the snow and ice add a dramatic perspective to the wild landscapes.
