6 Day Northern Lights Discovery
To the Vikings, they were fires in the sky or the gowns of dancing angels. To scientists, they’re the reaction of charged particles colliding with solar winds in Earth’s upper atmosphere. To all who see them, they are simply fascinating. They are the Northern Lights, a rippling cosmic curtain of ethereal greens and reds that ignite the subarctic sky.

It starts in Reykjavik, Iceland’s quirky capital where, after a restorative post-flight dip in the mineral-rich waters of the Blue Lagoon, you’ll get the chance to explore its landmarks and discover its funky atmosphere on a self-guided city tour. Next, explore the wonders of Iceland’s Golden Circle – including both the mighty Geysir and the sublime Gullfoss waterfall – with the help of Super Jeep, then zoom across Langjökull, Iceland’s second-largest glacier, on a guided snowmobile tour. From there, head up to Akureyri, Iceland’s “second city” and the gateway to the north to get your first glimpse of the Lights on a guided nighttime tour. Next, take a tour of Mývatn, a volcanic lake, and its gorgeous natural surroundings (including the spectacular Goðafoss waterfall, the unusual lava formations of Dimmuborgir, and other sites) before returning to Reykjavik for a stellar send-off dinner from the tasting menu of Grillmarkaðurinn, one of Iceland’s top restaurants.

Please note: This itinerary only runs during the winter months when the Northern Lights are visible. Please consult with your Destination Expert for more information.
