With revised NASA predictions of the strongest Northern Lights in over a decade this winter, Scandinavian specialists Taber Holidays have introduced the perfect break for people keen to fulfill their dream of seeing the aurora.
The brand new fly-drive ‘Southern Nights and Northern Lights’ trip offers some of the best chances to see the Northern Lights as it takes guests to the remote and beautiful wilderness of Hella in Southern Iceland, away from all artificial light pollution. With the choice between the luxurious Hotel Rangá or slightly more modest Hotel Lækur, both offer a wake up call should the lights appear in the middle of the night.
In addition to hunting the light, the region offers plenty to see by day also, including glaciers, waterfalls and volcanoes. The world-famous Geysir area is only a short drive away, as is the amazing Jökulsárlon Glacial Lagoon where you can see icebergs floating in the lake, and Iceland’s southernmost town of Vik, famous for its black sand beaches.
Prices for the four-night break start from £1,039pp and include flights, transfers, accommodation on a half-board basis for three nights in Hella (breakfast only in Reykjavik) and car hire. Based on two sharing. Departs daily until March 29th 2014 (excluding the Christmas period).
