    Boat was lovely, I think it was rather crowded to be honest not much room to move or sit down if needed. Just disappointed with the value for money.

TUI Northern Lights Tour

A journey to Iceland wouldn't be complete without seeing one of nature's greatest phenomenons – the Northern Lights. While there's no guarantee you'll see them, you can give yourself the best odds by escaping the street lamps of Reykjavík on a nighttime coach trip. Once we've hit clear and starry skies, there's a great chance of catching the lights as they illuminate above.

TUI Into Langjökull Glacier

TUI Into Langjökull Glacier

Iceland is famous for its glaciers but until recently, what lies underneath the Langjokull glacier had been a mystery. In 2010, the first manmade Glacier Ice Cave was carved to take people inside the heart of this remote glacier ice cap. What's more, you'll also visit the Hraunfossar Waterfall.After arriving at Husafell base, you'll climb onto a rugged snow truck to start your ascent to the ice cave, exploring the rugged glacial landscape along the way. An experienced guide will lead the way inside, where you'll see the magnificent blue ice buried deep beneath the surface that stays at a constant temperature of 0°.All this is combined with stunning waterfalls and panoramic views of the mountains as you make your way north to the glacier. And on our return, you might – with luck – catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights dancing through the sky.
