Surrounded by dramatic scenery, the Icelandic capital is brimming with museums and art galleries, but what makes a break in Reykjavík particularly special is the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights. We include a guided excursion in search of them, and provide notes for a self-guided city walking tour.
Northern Lights breaks in Reykjavík
Combining remote innocence and big-city appeal, the Icelandic capital is enthralling, but the main reason to visit in winter is the chance of seeing the aurora borealis. The highlight of our Northern Lights break in Reykjavík is the excursion that starts with a glacier walk and ends with a search for the Lights, but the rest of your time is free to explore at your own pace. We provide full information about the city, including a self-guided walking tour, the rest is up to you…
Three reasons to enjoy a Northern Lights break in Reykjavík
First, Reykjavík, the world’s most northerly capital city, is not your average capital and has a unique atmosphere. Second, it boasts a wealth of museums and art galleries that you can visit by day. Third, with such dramatic scenery within easy reach, you can join excursions to the famous Blue Lagoon and other impressive sights. All of which makes for a great Northern Lights break in Reykjavík.
