Northern Lights & Niagara Falls - 7 Nights
Why not combine two of the very best wonders that nature has to offer? We’re offering a weeks combination trip with 3 nights in Reykjavik and 4 nights in Toronto and included in the price is the famous Northern Lights tour and a day trip to the spectacular Niagara Falls.
Flights depart from London to Keflavik International and from here you will stay 3 Nights in good standard 3* hotel in Reykjavik with breakfast included each morning.
On the night of your choice you’ll be picked up from the hotel and taken out in search of the Northern Lights on our guided tour.
Search for the rare and elusive northern lights (Aurora Borealis) in the skies around Reykjavík on this all time winter bestseller! For many, seeing the Northern Lights is the reason to travel to our northern island in winter. They are mesmerizing, and a sight that will not be forgotten.
It is simple, nothing says “Icelandic Winter” like the idea of hunting for the Aurora Borealis. Created by solar storms originating from the sun, the Northern Lights need clear winter skies to be seen.
The expert operational team has decades of experience analysing weather patterns. We will review, each and everyday, the cloud forecast and the northern lights forecast in detail. We will not venture out in search of them unless we think we have good chance. This means we have a high success ratio.
All our northern lights tours are guided by one of our specially trained northern lights guides, they are both knowledgeable and helpful and will even give you tips on how to take photos of the night sky and of aurora. We offer free use of camera tripods (a must to take northern lights photos), we only have a few so if you own a tripod be sure to bring it along.
Every guide brings along an astronomical telescope for you to try out. Look for the stars and astronomy signs in sky using the provided star map and see the space that surrounds in a new way.
Whilst in Iceland why not book extra excursions and see the wonders the country has to offer such as the Golden Circle tour, Whale Watching or the famous Blue Lagoon.
Once your time is over in Reykjavik it will be time to hop across the Atlantic to Toronto. This wonderful city stands on the shores of Lake Ontario and has a whole host of attractions including the CN Tower, the tallest free standing structure in North America at over 500 metres tall, the Art Gallery of Ontario which is the largest galley in Canada, The Royal Ontario Museum, The Ontario Science Centre, the World Class Toronto Zoo or the Toronto Aerospace Museum.

Food wise Toronto is considered to be one of North America’s finest and as one of the most multicultural cities in the world the choice is vast. Nightlife centres around the Clubland and Fashion District areas with Adelaide and Queens Street packed with pubs, bars and clubs.
