Northern Lights in Style

Winter 6 days / 5 nights with extension to 8 days / 7 nights

First class hotels and unique soft adventures

The Northern Lights are one of nature’s great displays: a mysterious, multicolored show in which the night sky is suddenly lit up with a wondrous glow that twists and swirls like a heavenly lava lamp. Elusive and ethereal, it is one of the great, timeless thrills of travel; a beautiful, shifting dance of nocturnal rainbows that many viewers find a humbling and spiritually uplifting experience. The Northern Lights can only be seen at night but there is no need to worry about finding things to do during the day.

With the Northern Lights in Style we offer you an exclusive escorted bus tour. You experience unspoiled nature, geological wonders, cultural and culinary treats and a variety of soft adventures and activities during the day before going to hunt for the Northern Lights in Iceland at night. You stay in first class hotels, travel in a tour bus offering two seats per person and the group size is maximum 14 persons. The tour is available as a 6-day or 8-day program. Our expert tour guide provides you with a fact seminar about Northern Lights and teaches you how to take photos of them.
