Chase the northern lights while exploring the natural wonders of Iceland. Begin your adventure with a stroll through Reykjavík’s old town then, as night falls, set sail along Faxaflói Bay in search of the aurora.
By day, you’ll journey to some of Iceland’s most incredible wonders. Experience the powerful geothermal fields, marvel at thundering waterfalls, and sink your toes into black volcanic sand on a stunning beach. Delve into the history of Icelandic life in Skogar Folk Museum, and, at Eyjafjallajökull Volcano Visitor Centre, discover how the locals coped after the mountain’s 2010 eruption. Watch giant blocks of ice bob in the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon, then swap chills for thrills and plunge into the steaming Blue Lagoon. As the sun sinks below the horizon once more, rug up and set out to bask in the otherworldly glow of the northern lights.
Iceland is located in the North Atlantic Ocean between Greenland and Norway. IcelandAir flies from most European cities and major American cities.
