We cannot rate this holiday highly enough. Our time in the cabin was truly magical. We had lots of fun and we were constantly surprised by the stunning scenery. The Northern Lights managed to make an appearance. We would definitely recommend this for anyone looking to experience as much as Iceland has to offer in a short break".
“The whole trip was brilliant from start to finish and everything went without a hitch. We are very well travelled and my husband is still raving about one of the best holidays he has ever had. The Aurora were visible all 3 nights".

Our Classic range of breaks to Iceland are tried and tested Northern Lights Trips that we have been offering for 15 years. Over the years we have tweaked and crafted these breaks and truly believe they offer the very best opportunity to see the Northern Lights and experience the very best of Iceland.
We work with local small family run companies that care about your Northern Lights Trip and go out of their way to go above and beyond. Having built such a great relationship with them we are able to develop exclusive activities for Aurora Nights clients.
Our Northern Lights & Bonfire Trip is one of these where the guide will take you out to hunt down the Auroras. The guides have their favourite spots, one of them being near Porsmork. Surrounded by 3 Glaciers the dry air they create clears the skies which is what you need to see the Northern Lights. Often you will come back from a Northern Lights Tour in this remote region having had a marvellous display and then drive back into cloud with no possibility of seeing the Northern Lights.
We choose lodges and hotels situated in good areas for seeing the Northern Lights with Hotel Ranga in South West Iceland the most renown. They track Aurora sightings from the lodge and on any 3 nights stay you have about a 70% chance of seeing the Northern Lights. We think that is pretty good! Along with this enviable reputation for seeing the Aurora’s we can personally vouch for a very special experience sitting in one of their hot tubs, with a glass of wine, watching the Northern Lights dancing overhead. Don’t let the cold air put you off going into a hot tub as there is something pretty special about being toasty warm inside the hot tub as you watch the Auroras on a cold Arctic night.
For those who are not tempted by the hot tubs there is a superb observatory that Hotel Ranga has built a little way from the hotel. On clear nights an astrology expert will be on hand to show you how to use the highly sophisticated computerised telescopes, (and for those lucky enough to have the right type of camera hook up their camera to the telescope to take photos of the planets and Northern Lights in great detail) The Iconic Northern Lights Break is particularly popular for those wishing to stay at Hotel Ranga
In many of our choice accommodation we have an Aurora wake up call system in place so you don’t have to worry about going to sleep and missing the Northern Lights display! This is something that Hotel Ranga pioneered as they are so determined that your Aurora Trip lives up to your expectation.
For those celebrating a special occasion the Northern Lights Wilderness Iceland Escape is a wonderful break as you have your own private wilderness cabin. For many having this private space makes it the perfect location to propose, celebrate a big anniversary or birthday, or to take the family. There is a choice of 2 cabins and your food ingredients are pre bought and await your arrival in the cabin saving you precious time on not having to go shopping on your Northern Lights Trip. The first night the guide will cook for you, (we highly recommend his lamb sourced from a family farm- you don’t get more organic than in Iceland!), but of course vegetarian options are available. For those not wishing to cook on the other two nights there is the option to upgrade to eat at two local hotels, both of which offer excellent quality using locally sourced fresh ingredients. It may surprise many that the food in Iceland is superb, majoring on lamb and seafood and often presented in creative and delightful ways.
On these Classic Northern Lights Holidays Superjeep tours will take you off the tourist trail to visit stunning volcanic wonders away from the others. Glaciers, Geysers, Waterfalls, Volcanoes are all within reach on these tours and we balance our breaks so that you have time to self-explore the areas of Iceland that are easily accessible, and then invest instead in the superjeep tours to truly give you that wilderness adventure which you would not be able to reach yourself. It is a winning combination that has worked well for 15 years, but of course we can offer transfers and extra superjeep tours for those of you who don’t want to self-drive and who have a larger budget for your Northern Lights Trip. The beauty of what we do is that we can tailor your Northern Lights trip for you.
The Geothermal Blue Lagoon is considered a “must stop” for those visiting Iceland with its bright blue silica enriched waters. With in-water Massages, Spa treatments, Saunas and warm waterfalls what is there not to love? Increasingly people are looking to not just visit the Blue Lagoon but stay as well, relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The Blue Lagoon Northern Lights Escape and the Northern Lights Paradise breaks are worth considering if that is of interest.
For those short of time Reykjavik is a good base and a great option for Whale Watching. Our Iceland Northern Lights and Whales Explorer is particularly popular as it combines hunting for the Northern Lights both by sea and superjeep, with whale watching and a superjeep to explore the Golden Circle.
For those looking to go Glacier snowmobiling then the Reykjavik Aurora Short Break should be top of your list.
Our Iceland New Year break books up fast and offers the contrast of the high energy celebration of Reykjavik’s stupendous fireworks with a 2 night stay in a rural retreat in the heart of what we call “Northern Lights Alley”. Having said that many of our clients have even been lucky enough to see the Northern Lights as well as the fireworks from the New Year’s Eve firework cruise we include on our Iceland New Year’s Eve Northern Lights Classic Break
Our Icelandic Aurora over the Golden Circle and the Fire and Ice Northern Lights Trip are the best value Iceland Northern Lights breaks and in include some dinners so it is easier for clients to estimate the total cost of their Aurora Holiday.
The Icelandic Aurora over the Golden Circle break is based in a super family run Hotel located on a working traditional family farm of around 300 hectares far away from artificial lights and therefore a great location for viewing the Northern Lights.
On the Fire and Ice Northern Lights Trip you will spend 2 nights at Hotel Ranga- celebrated for its high incidence of Aurora sightings, and have the option of choosing between a superjeep adventures or an exploration to a Secret Ice Cave.
