Iceland Husky Sledding Aurora Adventure

Break Available: Mid Nov - Early April
5 Nights

Sel Hotel Myvatn

This hotel couldn't be better placed. The Skútustaðagígar pseudo-craters can be seen from the restaurant just a couple of minutes walk away. The views both to north and south are magnificent.

Whilst this 58 room hotel is a 3 star hotel it is recommended by the locals and has a friendly and comfortable atmosphere with a team who really want to make sure you have an incredible time.  Because of that they also provide a wake up call for those wishing to see the Northern Lights if they come out whilst you are asleep so you don't miss them!

They also have a cafeteria made out of glass which is a great place to watch and wait for the Northern Lights to show.

Reviews & Feedback

Testimonials

“All the elements of the trip were so amazing we felt really lucky to have experienced everything in the way we did. We were both thoroughly impressed with the every aspect of the holiday you provided and would like to use Weekend a la Carte in the future. Thanks again.”

Tom

“Exceeded my expectations. I am very sceptical when it comes to organised tours but I was proved wrong. My friends and I had the most amazing time. Sadly, we did not see the Northern Lights but none of us was too disappointed as the whole trip was magical. Everything was running like a clockwork. I didn't need to chase anyone for anything, amazing!”
