    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Reykjavik Sailors, Hlesgata vesturbugt F, Reykjavik 101 Iceland

    Imagine if Mother Nature herself would shoot fireworks and lighten up the sky, a moment so beautiful it leaves you out of speech, almost out of breath. We would love to take you on a special Iceland northern light tour away from the shine of the city to a place where you can truly see the northern lights dance around in the sky.
