Best of Lapland & Iceland

Overview

The program is a part of a Connoisseurs' Circuit which are designed for those who have travelled to the prime "wish list" destinations like South-East Asia, West Europe, the USA...; they have arrived in life and appreciate the good things that the world has to offer. You like the exclusiveness for your holiday with your close family and friends to bond better, away from the daily routines; to travel on your dates of convenience and customise your holiday to the extent possible.

The itineraries are designed for private holidays and not with large cosmopolitan groups. While the programs are not escorted, you don't need handholding. There is of course step-on guides for the sightseeing programs. The programs can be extended, more places or options can be added.

NORTHERN LIGHTS FROM ICELAND:

Northern Lights Mystery: A mysterious trip, on a dark winter night.

Any time from the onset of autumn darkness until the light nights of spring, we can witness one of nature’s most spectacular displays; the phenomenon which we call the Northern Lights. A once in a lifetime opportunity to witness this natural phenomenon Far from the glow of the city lights, we hunt for the elusive Aurora Borealis – known as the Northern Lights. On a clear night, you may be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the sky in dramatic shapes, colours, patterns and sizes. The Northern Lights are visible from September through April but can only be seen on a clear night. Therefore, we reserve the right to cancel this tour if the evening sky is heavily clouded or weather conditions are not favourable.

 

See how Aurora throws her fair
Fresh-quilted colours through the air:
Get up, sweet-slug-a-bed, and see
The dew-bespangling herd and tree

The Aurora Borealis is a fickle phenomenon. A week can pass without a flicker… then bang! The northern lights come on like a celestial lava lamp.

Aurora had but newly chased the night,
And purpled o’er the sky with blushing light.

The north! The north! From out the north
what founts of light are breaking forth,
And streaming up these evening skies,
A glorious wonder to our eyes!

You cannot rob me of free nature’s grace,
You cannot shut the windows of the sky
Through which Aurora shows her brightening face

The north! The north! From out the north
what founts of light are breaking forth,
And streaming up these evening skies,
A glorious wonder to our eyes!

 

Northern Lights Vide:

The island is a mere 20 minutes sail from the heart of Reykjavik´s Capital City. The island itself is quiet, (just the sound of resting birds can be heard) dark, (absent from artificial light throughout the majority of the island) and has been uninhabited since the 1950´s. You can enjoy the scenery, nature, history and culture of the island on our evening stroll in search of the natural phenomenon we call the aurora borealis or northern lights. Photographing the art work or buildings of the island with the northern lights behind adds that something special to your pictures either it can be the stunning blue light from the Imagine Peace Tower or the oldest stone building in Iceland. The island also provides incredible platforms for a 360° panoramic of the capital city; imagine peace tower, the island, mountain ranges and some of the oldest buildings in Iceland.
