NORTHERN LIGHTS GRAND ADVENTURE

Bask in the beauty of Iceland’s most magnificent features and captivating scenery! On this 10-day tour, you’ll travel through South and North Iceland to seek out majestic waterfalls, expansive mountain ranges, black sand beaches, glaciers, and more. Spend time relaxing and bathing in natural hot springs and in the evenings you’ll go hunting for the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) as they dance into the sky above you. This trip is rounded out with leisure time in Reykjavik, the capital city, so you can see popular sights like the Hallgrímskirkja church, visit fascinating museums, unwind at quaint cafes, and dine on delectable cuisine at local restaurants. Before you depart, we’ll head to the Blue Lagoon for one last relaxing experience. The length of this trip can be shortened, or you can cut in half to explore either North or South Iceland (includes Reykjavik).
