Northern Lights Tour in Iceland

Northern Lights Tour in Iceland (6 nights)

The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere with charged particles released from the Sun's atmosphere, resulting in beautiful streams of color in the night sky. The variations in color are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding, with green, blue, pink, orange, yellow and red all being seen. As a part of this package, you will visit the beautiful city of Reykjavik, which was selected by Rough Guides as the number one city to visit in 2016.
