Specialized Tours in Northern Iceland

North Travel has cultivated three tours to choose from. They have accumulated the best sightseeing opportunities, transport, and guides for each. Click on the title for more information.

NATURE BATHS AND NORTHERN LIGHTS

                                                       

Available October 1 to March 31. On this photography tour of Iceland you will go on a midnight trip to spy this sensational natural wonder; Departing at 10:00 PM and returning at 1:00 AM. Your photography equipment is essential in capturing this phenomenon, so whether your camera isn't able to or you don't want to bring it on vacation North travel will provide you with a camera and a tripod. As Northern Lights are created by mother nature they cannot guarantee that you see them, but they will (as their website says) "die trying". 

PHOTOGRAPHING THE NORTHERN LIGHTS

                                                        

Available from October 1 to March 31 this six-hour day trip is sure to be both therapeutic and awe-inspiring. What could be more relaxing than sitting in a nature bath with wine or beer in hand? After the baths, you will get to visit one of Iceland's most popular waterfalls and then go on a Northern Lights hunt. 

3 DAY ICE AND FIRE EXPEDITION

                                                       

This is a must. The three-day expedition with glacier hike is available during the summer months, and will take you to heights and landscapes only seen in magazines by most. This is not only a memorable trek but often a life-changing one too. On this one-of-a-kind trip you will see where ice and fire actually come together; it includes a visit to Holuhraun lava field. Every aspect has been organized, however accommodations and dining is not included in their price.
