Iceland break with a Northern Lights tour, plus optional Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle, South Shore and whale-watching excursions - flights, breakfast and more included

This action-packed Iceland break offers you the chance to experience Iceland’s spectacular Northern Lights, out-of-this world landscapes and discover some of its marine life. Using the Reykjavik suburb of Kópavogur as your base, you’ll embark on a Northern Lights tour in search of the magical Aurora Borealis, surely one of the planet’s bucket-list experiences.

You can then choose to add an amazing range of other excursions. Journey to the healing geothermal waters of the steamy, mineral-rich Blue Lagoon; take to the seas and go on a whale and dolphin-watching cruise; or see hot springs, geysers and waterfalls on an exhilarating Golden Circle tour, including the world-famous Geysir geothermal area, stunning Gullfoss waterfall, and the jaw-dropping Thingvellir National Park. You can also choose to upgrade your Golden Circle experience with a dip in the mineral-rich waters of the Laugarvatn Fontana, and embark on a tour of Iceland's south coast, home to many natural wonders including the Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls.

You’ll stay at Hótel Smári in Kópavogur, a relaxed establishment painted a cheery blue and white and handily located near the large Smaralind shopping mall. Interiors are a pleasing blend of old and new – think vintage lamps and armchairs jostling with more modern pieces. Whatever outdoor adventures the day has in store, you’ll find the continental breakfast will more than set you up for the day.

Good to know

The Northern Lights are of course a naturally occurring phenomenon, so while you will have a good chance of seeing them (and we'll cross our fingers for you), we cannot guarantee they will oblige.
