Description of Iceland short break Northern Lights tour
If you want to see the Northern Lights in Iceland, short breaks are an excellent idea for travellers who just dont have the time or the inclination to opt for an extended experience away from home.
This five day short break in Iceland packs in the southern highlights from Reykjavik to the edge of Vatnajokull National Park; with evening excursions to watch the Northern Lights complementing the daily excitement of creaking glaciers, tumbling waterfalls and spouting geysers.
Although catching a glimpse of the Northern Lights in Iceland on a short break is never guaranteed, every effort will be taken to maximise chances of success with regular forecasts being monitored by our experienced guides to ensure we know where and when the Aurora Borealis will appear.

It all starts at home so we have first worked to reduce our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies in place, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.
We operate small group tours that have a low impact on the communities we visit and we always ensure our operations do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. This allows us to stay in unique and characterful accommodation that would not have benefitted from tourism due to their limited size.
Few holidays have as little detrimental impact on the environment and local residents as a walking trip. It is a quiet, low impact activity requiring comparatively little resources to support. Erosion on and adjacent to popular paths is a growing problem and our trip leaders encourage clients not to stray from paths to minimise this
PeopleLeaders & local suppliers
This tour has been designed to both operate in a way that minimises our impact on the environment that we visit and to maximise the benefit that our clients can have on the host community. We use a locally based operator and have established a long-term partnership, assisting with local staff training in all aspects of their jobs, thereby investing in the people to help improve their knowledge and future prospects.
This itinerary goes to the Southern part of the Island and in many instances Accommodation is usually shut in the winter months. It has only been in the last few years that accommodation is open year round allowing guests to Experience the Northern lights and thus provide a valuable source of year round income.. Our Accommodation is locally run by a Husband and Wife team and the food is superb all sourced locally. As this accommodation is on a working farm expect an invitation to go and feed the animals after diner.
