Prepare yourself for an adventure of a lifetime and a tic off that bucket list. Everyone should see the dazzling, spectacular light show of the Northern Lights and 2018 is one of the best years in a decade to view them. The lights appear in the winter months and since the nights are longer, you'll have optimal viewing time.
If you're thinking Iceland is, well ... a land of ice, it's a bit of a misnomer. Iceland's climate is actually quite mild, due to the warm Gulf Stream waters. And it's beauty is truly unlike anywhere else on Earth, with steaming lava fields, and massive glaciers forming thundering waterfalls and plunging fjords.
You'll be immersed in Icelandic culture, folklore and history with visits to the Skogar Folk Museum, the Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Visitor Centre, Thingvellir and Skaftafell National Parks, Vatnajökull Glacier, and the Blue Lagoon. There is time for nightly sky-watching, with one night on a Northern Lights cruise into Faxaflói Bay in search of the Aurora Borealis.
