Here at the Flash Pack we take bucket lists very seriously. Seeing the Northern Lights is always sky high on people’s lists so we are more than happy to oblige. Providing Mother Nature plays along, this Iceland adventure gives you an unforgettable opportunity to marvel at the spectacular lights flashing and dashing across a frosty horizon. There’s also exploding geysers to witness, glaciers to hike and the geothermal warmth of the Blue Lagoon to dive into. To borrow a word off the Icelandics, this getaway is ‘Ógeðslega gott’. It literally means ‘disgustingly good’ and sums up our bucket-list ticking trip with more passion and promise than any English phrase in existence.

Itinerary

Day 1: LAND IN ICELAND & HIT THE TOWN

Ready to kick start your Iceland adventure? Touchdown in Keflavík airport and let the fun begin. Here you will be given a ticket for a minibus that will whizz you into the heart of the capital, just two minutes from your hotel. As darkness descends and the city lights up, we’ll head out to an Iceland gastropub for a three course welcome dinner. Get to know your fellow adventurers as you tuck into hearty Icelandic dishes, then if the Northern Lights are dazzling above your guide will lead you down to the waterfront for the best views in Reykjavik. Afterwards, hit the great local bars along the high street knowing the next few days hold nothing but epic adventure.

Day 2: STEAMY GEYSERS & A SNOWMOBILE SAFARI

No trip to Iceland is complete without a visit to the Golden Circle, and for very good reason. The day kicks off with a visit to Thingvellir National Park which is one of the only places in the world where you can see tectonic plates above sea level. Next up it’s geyser time, visiting a vast, geothermal field dotted with bubbling, multicoloured mud pools, spurting steam vents and hot and cold springs. A few minutes’ drive away is Gullfoss “Golden Falls” waterfall where white water thunders down into an impressive canyon that looks even more spectacular when frozen. After admiring these Iceland must-sees, it’s time to go off the beaten path. We’ll jump aboard super jeeps and get a feel for off road driving up to the Langjökulll glacier where you will gear up for a snowmobile ride. Feel at one with the amazing scenery as you slice across the ice, surrounded by the striking beauty of your snow-draped surroundings. Along the way, we’ll stop by a newly discovered ice cave where you can admire the awesome natural patterns carved into the ice. Then, from the depths of the ice to the highs of the sky, it’s time to see if the Northern Lights will come out to play. We’re staying in a family run Icelandic lodge where the lack of light pollution here makes it the ultimate location to admire the elusive lights. Providing mother nature is on our side, sit back in the outdoor hot tub here and watch the skies dance above you in a display of shimmering magic.

Day 3: THE SOUTHERN COAST & NORTHERN LIGHTS

Rise and shine in your peaceful surroundings, fresh for a day of exploring the stunning south coast of Iceland. Here vast black lava beaches stretch as far as the eye can see, huge waterfalls thunder down and glacier tongues pierce the coastline. Not content with just admiring from afar, us Flashpackers will gear up for a glacier hike across the rugged beauty of Sólheimajökull. This ever changing hub of ancient frozen water is an impressive sight to behold, with a maze of crevasses and jagged ridges to discover. Your experienced glacier guide will lead the way throughout this epic landscape, showing off amazing ice formations and sinkholes to look out for. After this heart pumping experience, we’ll then return to your cosy hotel for another chance to see the Northern Lights. That outdoor hot tub’s got your name on it.

Important notes

Fly into and out of: Reykjavik Keflavík International Airport

Try to arrive into Iceland before 5pm on day 1 and make sure your flight home is after 3pm on the last day otherwise you may miss out on the Blue Lagoon.

Northern Lights are visible from September to April but sightings are never guaranteed, you just have to hope lady luck is on your side.

It is safe to assume you will experience all the different types of weather during your Iceland adventure so make sure you pack lots of layers.

You need to have a driving license from your home country in order to drive a snowmobile.

Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change.
