Iceland hosts some of Europe’s greatest wilderness areas, which are home to active volcanoes, sheer granite mountains, glaciers, thundering waterfalls, steaming lava fields, plunging fjords, boiling mud pools and spouting geysers. Many naturalists describe it as one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World and is one of the most volcanically active spots on Earth. Each evening we will look out for the spectacular Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).
The bright, colourful displays appear in many colours, although pale green and pink are the most common, shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet have also been reported. The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow. Certainly a sight not to be missed!
