A recent increase in solar activity has lead to the Northern Lights gracing the skies as far south as Denmark and Germany. If this is any indication of the upcoming Northern Light season, Iceland is going to be the place to be this coming winter.
The natural phenomenon of the Aurora Borealis puts on a beautiful display from September to March in Iceland, where sightings are frequent due to the countries location on the edge of the Arctic Circle. Luckily for UK travellers, this winter Icelandair is providing an affordable way to see this natural wonder with its Northern Lights City Break.
Every Northern Lights tour is different as the tour guide takes the group to the area where they are most likely to see the lights that day based on weather conditions. The tour generally lasts three hours and makes for an exciting evening out exploring the rugged Icelandic wilderness.
The Northern Lights package deal includes flights from any Icelandair UK gateway; London, Manchester or Glasgow, three nights accommodation and the Northern Lights tour. In addition to the tour, the Northern Lights City Break provides free days to enjoy Iceland’s capital city Reykjavik, the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa or one of the many winter activities in the surrounding area.
