You will most certainly find something to do in Reykjavik. Ever wanted to capture the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) Iceland is perfectly situated to captures the natural display that illuminates the night sky.

What day are the lights on Stacey? X)

I'd love to do this but my winter holidays next year are much later, April I think, and Google says that's probably too late.

Great price!

I guesstimate the Wednesday (please don't hold me to that :D)

I went this year and saw awesome aurora borealis on March 29th. Think you can see them up until mid April, as a guide, but that could easily be give our take a month I guess?

Great deal!

I went to Iceland in March and it was amazing. Quick warning, firstly please do not go without sufficient spending money as some of the food and attractions are expensive. Don't let this put you off going but we did find it to be a bit of a shock when we first got there! HTH

I went 7th - 14th April 2013 and saw them on 2 separate nights

Going to be really cold in January and dark most of the day. Good price but wrap up warm and take plenty spending money for things like meals out. I was there in April this year, amazing place.

Booked a stay for two from London for £360 not including transfers, still rather cheap! Thanks Stacey, that's another fortune you've cost me (and saved me!!!) this year ;-)

We asked the locals where they shopped when we went and were told a supermarket called Bonus, we tended to get a lots of our food there to keep the costs down

we went in january and it was beautiful, think we were lucky with blue skies. the dark was weird, not the bright dark you get in lapland but there was very little snow. we flew jan 15th and saw the northern lights. price check excursions against travel Republic as some are cheaper there than booking direct with reykjavik excursions or gray line. we stayed in an apartment (around €80 a night- I know the currency is ISK not €) and shopped at bonus for breakfast/packed lunches saving us loads of money for the gorgeous jewellery. oh and you can claim tax back on anything over around £25

Good find

It's not called Northern Lights not because you can't see them all through the year, it's called it because that's all you'll see. Iceland is on the border of the Arctic circle and in January you'll be lucky to get 4 hours of daylight. That's why it's cheap and that's why it's called a Northern Lights holiday, another much better name for it would be a Darkness Holiday.

Brilliant price. Even if you're unlucky not to see the aurora there's so much to do the geysers, glaciers, horseriding on native horses, waterfalls, ferry trips truly beautiful country. Just wrap up warm!

For those who have been is there much walking required on these excursions as would love to go but wife has MS and cant walk very far?

The main tour which is the golden circle tour, doesn't involve much walking. Most sights are within 5-10 mins walk from the car park to see the basics, but you could walk further if you wanted. Similarly the blue lagoon (the amazing spa / swimming pool) if a 5-10 min walk from the car park.

You could also hire a car and easily see glaciers and waterfalls with very short walks (if any) from the vehicle.

I think Peter Kay is turning them on this year.

Also I can't recommend this hire car company enough sadcars.com/

Used them when we went in Feb, the car we hired was a 10 year old Rav 4, but was the same price as getting a small car from a bigger company. A small car would have really struggled in some parts of our journey, and especially driving in a snow storm before the snow plows had finished.

They were also very friendly and helpful

I went to Reykjavik last weekend and we also used Sad Cars - they were great. Picked us up from the airport, dropped us back, super friendly guys. I had about a 10-12 year old Subaru and that did the job nicely.

Yer they do, and its still a good price, Thanks

Went in February, easily one of best holidays I've been on. Stunning country. We saw the Aurora on 7 out of 10 nights but really pot luck if you do, there are apps you can get which give good advance warning when there is increased solar activity, worth downloading before you go.

Can be expensive like has been said so budget properly for food/drink etc, plenty to see and do in Reykjavik for a few days but you really should hire a car and go out exploring, even just a few miles outside Reykjavik the landscape changes dramatically.

Try and not get offered some fermented shark meat by the locals if you can help it, you've been warned :-)

would love to go................

The accomendation is coming up at over £1500.

Excellent thanks


oooh so tempted ive got MS too and the walking thought has put me off get sick of wheelchairs and crutches spoiling everything this sounds fab northern lights is on my bucket list :-)

I'd also recommend not bothering with cash at all. Everyone in Iceland use credit cards for everything, so getting a Halifax Clarity will save you carrying cash and will work out cheaper.

Thanks so much sunshine stacey, Heat from me. Booked 4 nights, flying from Luton on 18th Jan.Paid a bit more (£450) but chuffed with it. A Xmas treat for mum

My daughter and I have booked it, although the discount code doesn't work for the transfer. Also, the website given for the accommodation charges way more than quoted. We booked the hotel through Travel Republic and got a price similar to the quoted price. We then decided to pay an extra tenner each to upgrade to a Superior Twin room. We are really pleased and excited. Thanks Sunshine Stacy

Not 100% on how to book this, anyone could help me out?
Looking to go early December if possible, but flexible with that. Would really appreciate anyone who can help

No flights anywhere for even close to that price sadly or would have been great. Have been trying to book a holiday there for weeks!!
