Hunting the Northern Lights

Updated: Jan 5, 2018




I read this over the weekend-

"It's almost like there's nobody on the planet who hasn't either been to #Iceland, who has a friend who just went to Iceland or a family member who's getting ready to go."



So True! And it seems every article listing the top places to visit in 2018, finds Iceland at the top. And here's your chance for an adventure that includes the top sights, 2 nights of #NorthernLights "hunting" and its affordable- which is a word usually not in the same sentence with Iceland. With so many new non-stop flights, it's also even easier to get there.
