Experience the best of Iceland’s winter! Our new Northern Lights Exploration tours are designed to include a lot of Iceland and aim to maximize the chances of seeing the elusive Northern Lights. In addition to 7 nights of accommodations with breakfast, the program includes our special six night Northern Lights Academy – with 6 evenings of presentations, lectures and guided tours at spots likely to offer a glimpse of the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights. This is a fully escorted coach tour with guaranteed departures from September to April which can help you experience the winter at it‘s most Icelandic – both during the day and after dark, as you head to the countryside in West and Southeast Iceland, exploring the regions from Snæfellsnes peninsula to Vatnajökull glacier to search for the Aurora Borealis away from the big city lights.
Just below the Arctic Circle, discover the beauty and unique attractions of Lake Myvatn in winter. Immerse yourself in the nature while the Aurora Borealis dances in the clear winter skies.

Winter is a magical time of the year and everything is in a different kind of bloom. The air is crisp, the trees are naked and the green grass and soil forcibly frozen together. The red berries that fall on the ground at the end of summer are glued to the frozen ground covered in a thin layer of snow and the little that is left of the patches of green grass is mother nature’s own Christmas decoration. Magic is in the air.
Winter in Iceland is a fantastic season to experience the majestic might of glaciers. These powers of nature have forcefully carved Iceland‘s landscape on their ponderous march to the sea. Icelandic glaciers have been the focus of international news programmes and movies; they are worth a closer look, and this new driving vacation gives more time in prime glacial areas.
The fireworks displays on New Year’s Eve in Iceland have to be seen to be believed. On this evening, the ban on fireworks is lifted and citizens use the opportunity to the fullest, lighting up the night sky with a massive, brilliant show of blazing colours as far as the eye can see.
Experience the best of Iceland’s winter! Our Northern Lights Exploration series are designed to include the highlights of Iceland and aim to maximise the chances of seeing the elusive Northern Lights.
