Beat the January blues with this super weekend in Iceland. Price includes direct flights, four nights in a centrally located hotel, and a Northern Lights night tour!
We spent a weekend in Iceland a few years ago and loved it. It was everything I hoped it would be and so much more! The scenery, the people, everything about the trip was amazing, despite having crazy snow storms…
We saw the Northern Lights, something that was on my bucket list for years. October to April is the best time to see them in Iceland, so fingers crossed you will too.

We also swam in the Blue Lagoon. Bathing in the steamy waters of the Blue Lagoon with snow all around us was something really special. In fact the whole island looked like a Winter wonderland. There are so many things to do in Iceland – check out some of the top tours from Viator here and see more in this post:
I found a good deal staying in the 4-star Vintage Hotel. This is a superbly located townhouse hotel in the heart of the city, and all rooms have a kitchenette, which can be handy in Iceland if you are trying to economise!
I have based this weekend in Iceland on a four-night stay departing January 19th, but if you are looking for a shorter or longer stay, or wish to travel at a different time, simply edit the dates on the links below to suit your requirements.
I have added direct links to Skyscanner below to show you the cost of the flights, but when you click through to the list of providers, I suggest you book directly on the Icelandair or Play airlines websites. You will see the price is slightly more expensive to book directly on the airlines website, but I have included that in the cost below.
I also included a Northern Lights night tour with pick-up from your hotel. If you don’t see the aurora on this tour, you can do it again at no additional cost. TOP TIP: Make sure you book the Northern Lights tour for the first night you arrive. If it is cancelled due to poor visibility (which happens regularly), this will give you time to re schedule for another night.
