Northern Lights From Hveragerdi

One of the beauties of visiting Iceland in the late fall and wintertime is that you may well be lucky enough to experience one of Mother Nature´s most amazing phenomena – the Northern Lights.

From the town of Hveragerdi on Iceland´s south coast, we head off in the hope of spotting these elusive lights as they weave and dance their magical way across the northern heavens. However, in hunting for the Auora Borealis, patience is the name of the game.

To ensure a more personal and enjoyable tour we only have small groups. In addition, we bring along a snack of traditional Icelandic food so as to offer you an interesting additional cultural insight.

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed

I went on the Splendor of the Fjords tour, and it was fantastic. Our tour guide, Anne, was wonderful, intertwining stories of the landscape with the history and politics of Norway for those of us not well versed on those matters. My tour group was a great blend of folks from different countries, and communication was easy between all of us - by the end of the tour, we felt more like a family than a bunch of strangers. Our driver, Sune, was amazing; in the US, I prefer to be the driver so I can have control, but Sune made us all feel safe with his skillful navigation of the country. The food was great (a lot of fish, but most of it was delicious) and the hotels (particularly the ones with fjord views) were fantastic. Would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see a lot of the southern countryside of Norway. I'll definitely be going back! Heather
