Hi Travelers! We're moving this trip to February 2018. I received a lot of feedback, and it sounds like the Northern Lights are on many of your bucket lists. We have a greater chance of seeing them if we go in the winter, and if we stay a little longer. This will be a 4-night trip, from February 15-19, 2018. This will run into President's Day, so hopefully you have that day off work already :)

Iceland is renowned for its otherworldly illuminations, the Northern Lights being one remarkable example. This particular phenomenon, also known as the Aurora Borealis, can be experienced in Iceland during the winter time, especially on those clear, crisp nights, where they appear in a variety of colors and intensity, either twirling gently in shades of milky green, or occasionally blazing in a wild and multi-colored dance across the night sky.
The Golden Circle includes some of Iceland’s most stunning sights, starting with the Geysir geothermal area where the Strokkur geyser shoots a column of water up to 30 metres (98 ft.) into the air every 4-8 minutes in a thrilling display of nature’s forces.
The visit continues with Gullfoss (Golden Falls) waterfall, created by the river Hvítá, which tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 m (105 ft.) deep.
The Golden Circle also includes the historical and geological wonder that is Thingvellir National Park, where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimetres per year.
Surrounded with amazing nature, the Blue Lagoon is an oasis of relaxation. The unique experience includes swimming, a sauna, steamroom, and waterfalls.
I can't wait to share this awesome experience with you!
