Seeing the Northern Lights

On the evening of 28th February our first Icelandic northern lights tour was treated to a superb display of the aurora borealis. Shortly after dinner Dr John Mason, our astronomy expert reported the arc of the lights in the north and the group put on their warm cloths and filed outside to the viewing area. As the evening continued the auroral activity increased and waves, rays and curtains of green and red light mesmerised us all. Under the crystal clear skies many stood watching until well after midnight. The sight of this truly wonderful spectacle was unforgettable.

I've just returned from a stunning walk with small group of customers. We walked right up to the rim of a volcano and then around it. It had snowed heavily overnight so everything was coated in powder snow, an amazing experience.
