This tour offers the chance to see the Northern Lights, one of the wonders of the natural world guided by our expert astronomer Dr John Mason. During the short winter days there will be excursions and outdoor activities including visits to hydrothermal pools, horse riding, walks in volcanic landscape and snow mobiling.
Passengers stay in small locally run hotels and use local guides in a remote Lake Myvatn region of Iceland. This area does not attract many tourists during the winter season and this trip will boost the local economy in a quiet period. We would endeavour to involve and educate the local guides in the science of aurorae which will in turn help them to introduce other tourists and potentially become guides in this special interest field.
Our Responsible Travel Code: Clients who travel with us are encouraged to view our dedicated responsible travel webpage. This contains details and advice on how you can make a positive difference when you travel.
Carbon Balancing: Global warming is a real issue and is a direct result of your travel. We have teamed up with Climate Care to give you the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions from your flight. You’ll be asked upon booking if you want to donate – with set amounts from £5. As a company we offset the carbon emissions from all staff travel in full.
Our Foundation: We’ve highlighted a few of the ways in which we offer our support, financially or otherwise, and now you can, too. We have set up our own foundation, which will administer funds donated by you. A small donation of £1 per person will be taken when booking a vacation and that money will be put to good use by one of our carefully selected projects. If you don’t want to make the donation, just tell us when you book.
