Aurora Borealis at Lonely Planet Best Value Travel Destinations for 2010

Aurora BorealisIn Iceland, the Aurora Borealis hit their pinnacle activity levels towards the end of March. To mark this event, Iceland’s leading airline, Icelandair, have introduced the new, and affordable, Northern Lights City Break, aimed at UK visitors.

The Northern Lights hunt begins the following evening after the arrival day. The lucky adventurers are picked up at their hotel and driven to Iceland’s glorious countryside in search for the illusive Aurora Borealis. Every hunt, organised by Reykjavik Excursions, is individual as each separate group is taken to a unique location, based on the likelihood of its visibility.

Furthermore, the Northern Lights City Break package provides visitors with ample time to wonder around Reykjavik’s incredible sights. Fancy going for a swim at one of the city’s excellent swimming pools or just chilling out at a cosy coffee house? Well, with this package deal you can do both. In addition, due to the favourable currency exchange rate of the Krona, now is the best possible time to visit Iceland at low cost – Iceland has been labelled by Lonely Planet as one of the Top 10 Value Travel Destinations for 2010.

Available through until 31st March, the Northern Lights City Break package includes three nights in a top class hotel, the Northern Lights hunt and flights from a choice of Glasgow, London Heathrow or Manchester. The deadline for booking is by 31st January.
