iceland-northern-lights-and-golden-circle-tour-2-472805_1555641973

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Explore Iceland’s glaciers and waterfalls.
  • Keep your eyes peeled for dazzling displays of the Northern Lights.
  • Explore the famous Golden Circle and visit an Icelandic horse farm.

The trip Iceland Northern Lights & Golden Circle starts from and ends in Reykjavik. It is a northern lights tour that takes 5 days taking you through Álftröð and Reykjavik in Iceland. Iceland Northern Lights & Golden Circle is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Iceland’s otherworldly aura seems to heighten at the winter months, when viewing of the Northern Lights is at its peak and the contrast between the cool, crisp air and its steaming geothermic hot springs heightens. Couple that with hiking through Þingvellir National Park, visiting horse farms, exploring lava caves, and chasing waterfalls, and you’ve got yourself a spectacular winter adventure like no other.
