Iceland and the Northern Lights

February 1 to 9, 2025

Experience the otherworldly beauty of the Northern Lights on this unique, nine-day land journey specially timed for optimal viewing of the aurora borealis. See Iceland’s “Big Three” wonders, known as the Golden Circle — the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Þingvellir National Park; the two-tiered “Golden Waterfall” of Gullfoss; and Strokkur, an active geyser that erupts every few minutes. From cosmopolitan Reykjavík to the harbor town of Siglufjördur and beyond, immerse yourself in the rustic splendor of this “land of fire and ice” with guided evening excursions to chase the natural phenomenon that lights up the sky. Play hide and seek around the dark towering lava formations of Dimmuborgir and step back in time at the Herring Era Museum, just miles from the Arctic Circle. Accommodations are at the elegant Hótel Borg in Reykjavík and the Icelandic-style Hótel Kea — located in the heart of Akureyri, the gateway to north Iceland.
