Trip Operator: The Aurora Zone
This four-night Reykjavik holiday offers the perfect introduction to Iceland’s capital and some of the country’s much-loved natural attractions. In addition, there are extensive opportunities to seek out the Aurora and hopefully catch a glimpse of this natural phenomenon as it dances in the dark skies.
A tour of the ‘Golden Circle’ will take you to the lovely Thingvellir National Park, which has been labelled by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Here, you can see the amazing Silfra Fissure, a separation point between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, which has some of the clearest water on the planet. Stand in awe watching the iconic geysers of the Haukadalur Geothermal Area, and take photos by the mighty Gullfoss Waterfall. You will also have the chance to spend time in the relaxing Blue Lagoon, soaking in mineral-rich waters and getting completely refreshed.
Two nights of dedicated Northern Lights hunting are included in this trip, in addition to a third night at the Northern Lights Inn which is located in an area away from artificial light, considerably enhancing your opportunities of gazing upon the lights from the comfort of your accommodation. An extensive hunt is undertaken on day 3 as you are taken from viewpoint to viewpoint, from the luxury of a comfortable coach, away from the city lights, and into the surrounding countryside. You will also take a unique Northern Lights tour by boat to the neighbouring Videy Island which is free from light pollution and is characterised by its immense silence.
We have left a day free for you to enjoy Reykjavik’s highlights at your own pace, or to book some superb optional activities. These include getting a tour of the city and the surrounding area, a subterranean adventure inside an old volcano, and an epic journey inside the tunnels of Langjökull Glacier.
