Northern Lights Escape

This is the perfect way to travel in Iceland. Small groups on a flexible itinerary with a local guide providing a wealth of geographical, historical and cultural knowledge. It felt we touched the very essence of Iceland.

Iceland's Classic Northern Lights

Alice · Traveled February 2024
This trip exceeded my expectations. We were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights on two nights! Jura, our Guide, was amazing. So knowledgeable of Iceland's history, culture and lifestyle, and also told us really entertaining stories of trolls and other folklore. The group got on so well and bonded from the get go. Hotels we stayed at were great too.

Iceland's Classic Northern Lights

Linda · Traveled February 2024
Thanks to our guide Jura, the visit to Iceland was incredible! I never would have gotten so much educational value by traveling solo, and made so many new friends during this trip. We got so lucky seeing the Aurora Borealis and experienced such good food and saw so many beautiful Southwestern Icelandic Landmarks. Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss, and Sólheimajökull were particularly stunning and visiting all the little towns were so incredibly cool. Thank you again for such a lovely time!
