At £339 for solo travellers, this package from Icelandair Holidays combines a Reykjavik city break with a hunt for one of nature's most spectacular sights -- the Northern Lights. The 3-night trip, with accommodation at a 4-star hotel, is now £140 cheaper than usual.
Guests will stay at the Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura, a 4-star property 20 minutes' walk from the city centre and close to the Perlan, a landmark building in Reykjavik.

The Daily Telegraph says: "If you have always wanted to see the Northern Lights, this is undoubtedly the time," with 2013 forecasted to be a peak time for sightings.
The expertly guided Northern Lights tour is approximately three hours long -- the route will depend on forecasts and where sightings are most likely to occur. If the trip is unsuccessful, guests are able to join the following night's tour for free.
A 23kg checked baggage allowance is included, as are complimentary non-alcoholic drinks during the flights. Transfers are not included, but can be added for £27, return.
