Hunt for the Northern Lights while staying in charming and authentic accommodation
Country Comfort and Northern Lights is the latest addition to our winter self-drive holiday selection.
Just have a few days? This 3 night self-drive tour allows you to experience the authentic Icelandic countryside, while staying in comfortable accommodation away from the bright lights of the city.
Travel through Iceland's dramatic landscapes during the day, visiting sites such as Thingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area's spouting hot spring Strokkur, and the powerful Gullfoss Waterfall. To spice things up a bit, we've added an adventurous stop at Gamla Laugin, a natural hot spring lagoon located only a short distance from the popular Golden Circle route.
This is the perfect aurora holiday for active explorers and traditional travelers alike!
