The recent increased solar activity has given an indication that the upcoming Northern Lights season this autumn/winter is going to be spectacular – Iceland being the perfect destination to view this natural wonder.
The Aurora Borealis puts on a beautiful display from September to March in Iceland, where sightings are frequent due to its close proximity to the Arctic Circle. The good news is that Icelandair has announced the Northern Lights City Break, including flights from any Icelandair UK gateway, three nights accommodation and an incredible Northern Lights tour.
This Northern Lights tour, operated by Reykjavik Excursions, takes place the following evening of your arrival. Passengers are picked up at their hotel and driven to an area outside of Reykjavik to search for one of natures’ greatest phenomenon. You can expect every tour to be different, as the location will vary in order to get the best viewing opportunity. The tour generally lasts three hours and makes for an exciting evening out exploring the rugged Icelandic wilderness.
In addition to the tour, the Northern Lights City Break provides free days to enjoy exploring Reykjavik, relaxing at the Blue Lagoon or enjoying one of Iceland’s many winter activities. Plus, due to the exchange rate, Iceland has not been as cheap as it currently is in decades, so now is the time to travel to this winter wonderland. In fact, Lonely Planet recently named Iceland one of its Top 10 Value Destinations for 2010.
This offer is only available online, hotel upgrades are available at an extra cost. Icelandair flies from Manchester, Glasgow and London Heathrow.
Icelandair is one of Iceland’s longest established companies, connecting the world and Iceland for over 70 years.
