This Northern Lights Exploration trip is designed to include the highlights of Iceland and aim to maximize the chances of seeing the elusive Northern Lights. In addition to a seven night stay with breakfast, this program includes our special six night Northern Lights Academy, a combination of evening presentations, lectures, film and guided lookouts for the Aurora Borealis - the Northern Lights.
