We’ll spend time soaking in lagoons, we’ll traverse an ice cap by way of snowmobile and we’ll explore the famous Golden Circle, including Gulfoss Waterfall and the Great Geysir. All said and done, no visit would be complete without a visit to the countryside, so pack your bag as we head to one of the best places to see the Northern Lights in South Iceland.
