Read the Blog
I don't normally do this, but felt I wanted to say thank you for the excellent service both here and while we were travelling in Iceland. The hotels, our driver and our guide were full of knowledge and couldn't have been more helpful...What a fantastic place Iceland is!
Kathy White, Northern Lights Special
If you hadn't been so helpful we wouldn't have visited Iceland this year and I'm so delighted we did.
Nikki Ilton, Northern Lights Special

Please note that arrangements are usually made for participants to dine as a group. Day 2: exploring the Golden Circle Spend the day exploring the famed Golden Circle route including Thingvellir National Park, where you can walk the rift in between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, the spectacular two-tiered waterfall Gullfoss and the spouting geysers of Geysir.

The scenery on the Reykjanes peninsula is spectacular and dramatic. On this tour you will cross dramatic lava flows and witness steaming vents and bubbling mud pools at Krýsuvík, and will visit the fishing village of Grindavík. Continue further west to the Reykjanesviti lighthouse, see migratory birding cliffs, and walk across a bridge between two continents: at Sandvík, a small footbridge crosses a major fissure between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.

- This itinerary is based around flights which arrive at Keflavik at 16:00. Other flight options are available but may involve a short wait upon arrival in Iceland or require extra nights to be added in Iceland before and/or after the tour. Please contact our team of travel specialists to discuss the options available to you.
- The weather in Iceland can be unpredictable and therefore can cause substantial delays which can result in the need to re-arrange or extend your holiday itinerary. Whilst we and our contacts in Iceland will do everything possible to minimise any disruption, it is important that you check the details of your travel insurance and allow for some flexibility in your plans.
