Description of Northern Lights tour in Iceland
This six day, small group Northern Lights tour in Iceland is a wonderful combination of some of the classic geological and natural wonders that the country has to offer, but also getting right out there into wilderness to up your chances of seeing the Northern Lights.
Iceland really is a country that beckons adventure, with hot springs, volcanic lagoons, such as the famous Blue Lagoon, glacial lagoons like Jokulsarlon, where icebergs calve into the bluish white abyss. And of course waterfalls, including the famous Gulfoss which tumbles 32m into Hvitargljufur Gorge. And is just one of the stops on the country’s famous Golden Circle.
As well as the Golden Circle, we get a chance to hike on Vatnajokull, Europe’s largest ice cap, which has thirty glaciers flowing off it. We don’t do things in a really strenuous way on this trip so don’t worry if hiking isn’t your thing, you can take a shorter walk if you prefer. We also have a day to enjoy the capital city, of course, now considered one of Europe’s coolest places to visit. What’s coolest in our books, however, is seeing the Aurora Borealis do her beautiful thing and we will endeavour to take you to the best spots possible, depending on weather conditions, so that you too can experience this natural wonder.

PlanetWe are a big supporter of the protection of endangered species around the world. Although a global ban on commercial whaling came into effect in 1986, approximately 1,000 whales are still being killed every year, with Iceland being one country to defy the ban. We encourage our travelers to avoid purchasing whale-based dishes or souvenirs to discourage fueling this trade.
Activity: Tourism is booming in Iceland and this tour actively encourages travelers to chat with local guesthouse owners and other travelers and to purchase local Icelandic produce, gifts and crafts.
UK office: It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, 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.
PeopleAccommodation and meals: Our small group size allows us to stay in small family-run guesthouses in Hvolsvöllur and Höfn that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited size.
Community: Our local Icelandic Tour Leader will share insights into local customs and traditions and if you’re lucky, they may treat you to a rendition of popular folk songs.
Group size: This small group tour has a maximum of 12 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people as far as possible.
