Northern Lights Mystical Sights

Northern Lights Mystical Sights

Aurora borealis means ‘dawn of the north’ in Latin, so it’s not surprising that the remote highlands of northern Iceland provide such a perfect backdrop for the spellbinding northern lights. The shallow water of Mývatn reflects the iridescent lights as they dance across the night sky, casting an ethereal glow over the dramatic, volcanically-formed landscape.

Reykjavik  Evening.jpg

Day 1


Upon arrival at Keflavík International Airport, you will be transferred to your hotel in downtown Reykjavík.  You can spend the day exploring Iceland’s bustling capital city at your leisure.


Day 2

Lake Mývatn

Following breakfast at your hotel, you have free time until lunch when it is time to go to Reykjavík Airport for your flight to Akureyri.  A Jeep/Super Jeep will meet you at Akureyri Airport and transfer you to your hotel in Skútustaðir.  After checking in, you will take a sightseeing tour around Mývatn.  Shaped by volcanic activity over many, many years Mývatn (whose name literally translates to Midge Lake) is a geological wonderland and fantastic wintertime destination with thanks to ample adventure activities to choose from in its vicinity.  Favorable conditions permitting, you’ll be able to witness the northern lights from your hotel in the evening.


Day 3

A day of adventure at Mývatn

You’ll spend the day participating in your choice of activities in the area around Mývatn.  Ranging from relaxing to adventurous, they are all sure to be quite memorable (although we are particularly fond of ending the day at Jarðböðin við Mývatn, a tranquil, mineral-rich bathing lagoon).
Optional activities may include:

   - Touring in a super jeep tour along Mývatn’s rugged shoreline
   - Snowmobiling
   - Go-karting on ice
   - Cross-country skiing
   - Horseback riding
   - Sightseeing excursions to Dettifoss.

Dettifoss is the most powerful waterfall in Europe; Námafjall, a geothermal field filled with fumaroles and boiling mud pools; and/or Dimmuborgir, an area of unusually shaped lava formations.


Day 4

The adventures continue…

You’ll have the morning to spend however you’d like before you are transferred back to the Akureyri Airport around lunch time to catch a flight back to Reykjavík.
Spend the afternoon enjoying Reykjavík at your leisure.


Day 5

The Blue Lagoon and Departure

A shuttle will transport you from your hotel in Reykjavík to the airport.
Along the way to Keflavík, you will stop at Bláa Lónið (popularly referred to by its English name “the Blue Lagoon”).  Soak in its warm, therapeutic water for a few hours before heading on to the airport to catch your flight home.
