Iceland – A Northern Lights Adventure

About

Iceland is a dramatic and powerful experience, especially in winter. Adventure in to the country’s natural winter elements of wind, stone, fire and ice and see them all working in harmony as well as at odds, at hot springs, thundering icy waterfalls, underground lava tubes, moving glaciers, and dramatic wintry fiery skies. See cool capital city Reykjavik too. This is Iceland at its authentic best.

You should experience it because...

You will witness how Iceland was created hundreds of years ago, you will feel the force of a warm geothermal spray, and you will stroll in the footsteps of the Vikings at the site of the longest running parliament in the world.
