Reykjavik ''offers a bewitching combination of village innocence and big-city zeal'', says Lonely Planet. The city is famous for its thriving music scene and nightlife, not to mention a clutch of cutting-edge restaurants. Located just a few minutes' walk from downtown Reykjavik, Hotel Klettur is a modern Scandinavian-style property. It has a bar serving an impressive selection of local beers and a lounge where breakfast is served.
This year the Northern Lights are expected to be at their most active in over a decade. The tour is approximately three hours long. Guests will be taken via coach to a viewing location based on the most up-to-date weather and solar activity reports for that evening. Each trip is unique and sightings of the lights are not guaranteed. However, if unsuccessful, guests are able to join the following night's tour for free.
This offer includes 23kg checked luggage and 10kg hand luggage. All Icelandair flights also offer seat selection, personal in-flight entertainment systems and free soft drinks on board.
Book by 3 July.
