Getting there

There are a couple of ways of getting out to the East – the first is the option of flying over on a domestic flight from Reykjavik City Airport to Egilsstaðir airport. From here you can pick up your car hire and begin to explore this area.

The other option is to drive from Keflavik – to do so you will need to look to plan in some nights along which our Adventure Artists will help put together for you.

Climate

Despite its name, Iceland is not necessarily that cold. Winter temperatures are an average of 3.6°C, and summer temperatures average around 15°C. In the summertime, you can enjoy long, extended hours of sunshine and in the wintertime, the nights can get dark enough for you to see the Northern Lights as long as you are away from light pollution!

Geography

Iceland is world-famous for its geology and geography. With huge mountain ranges and an active geothermal country with many geysers, hot springs and volcanic formations to be found – it is a breath-taking landscape for those after an adventure.

Iceland offers some of the best waterfalls in Europe, such as the Dettifoss regarded as the most powerful waterfall in the whole of Europe.

With a latitude of 64° north, Reykjavik offers a perfect base from which to embark on an Iceland northern lights adventure.
