Frequently asked questions

Have a different question? We are always happy to help.


We are thrilled to have secured exclusive access of two wilderness cabins each with its own unique feel but both built to a high specification for the Northern Lights Wilderness Cabin Escape. The beauty of having private accommodation cannot be underestimated as you can relax in your own space, sit outside with a glass of Bubbly watching your own private Northern Lights display and feel like you own a slice of Iceland’s wilderness for the time you are there.

Eyjafjallajokull cabin sits alone on the volcanic plain running down to the Atlantic with the backdrop of the volcano of the same name (famed for erupting in 2010 and shutting down European airspace). Modern, bright and airy with huge windows it is built with Northern Light viewing in mind and we love hearing about our clients who watch the Northern Lights from the back door with a glass of wine in their hand! This has 4 bedrooms taking up to 7 people but we are very happy to book this just for 2 people and for you to take over the whole cabin.

Our other cabin, Saeli Icelandic Cabin, is more of a log style cabin with a stunning view of Hekla, Iceland’s most notorious volcano and the surrounding volcanoes (you are spoilt for choice). Perfect for two couples or a family group in 2 main bedrooms with an attic which the kids will love. This cabin comes with its own private hot tub too. Just imagine sitting in the hot tub as the Northern Lights perform above you and no-one else in sight. Do memories get better than that?!

We work with two top-end hotels in the area

Hotel Ranga has long been a firm favourite with us with its Aurora wake up call, hot tubs and the new observatory with computerized telescopes. Every clear night an astrology expert will be on hand to talk you through the science of the Northern Lights as well as show you how to use the telescopes and even hook up the telescopes to certain cameras so you can photograph the Northern Lights. The team at Hotel Ranga tries very hard to make sure your Northern Lights stay with them is wonderful.

The food is exceptional at Hotel Ranga with a service level to match and their themed suites (Themed around the 7 continents of this world) are out of this world.! On our exclusive breaks we would always recommend you stay in one of the suites. Each has been authentically decorated with furnishings from the appropriate continent. The Junior Suites are themed Asia, N America, S America, Australia whilst the Master Suites represent Africa & Antartica. The ultimate suite is the Royal Suite and the newest addition is the Icelandic Suite.

A new kid on the block is Skalakot Manor Hotel, with only 14 bedrooms and refurbished to an extremely high standard and situated with Mount Hekla as the backdrop. The hotel is an extension to a farm where the owners live and they like to look after their visitors as guests of the family, so expect to be treated to a very warm welcome. Situated on farmland there are no artificial lights to spoil your Northern Lights Holiday and the peace of the wilderness will envelop you. It’s a beautiful boutique hotel with stunning food and a lovely atmosphere. The top suite- the master suite has its own log fire which you can relax in front of after your day exploring the volcanic beauties in the area. It’s a very romantic spot!

Personal superjeep tours

On all of our breaks we only offer small personal superjeep tours. Iceland has a vast choice of bus tours and huge superjeeps that take up to 12 people, but we want to give you a personalized and special experience where the guide can gauge and adapt to your interests, and take you to places the others cannot reach in the heart of the wilderness. The superjeep tours we offer are limited to 8 people and often this number will be split into two superjeeps of four people. (Though of course we will not split you if you are one larger group of 8 people!).

Personal guide

However we understand that some wish to take this to the next level and have a private guide to themselves. Of course that upgrade is possible and means that the day can be totally flexed to your interest and pace. The joy of tailor-making private tours is that the guide really can solely focus on what he thinks will enthuse you. We can offer private ice hiking on glaciers, snowmobiling, SuperJeep Tours – both day and night, Hiking tours, visiting Ice Caves, as well as helicopter trips. It all depends on your needs and budget!

To give you a feel to how this break can look we have worked up The Iceland Aurora Mecca staying at either Skalakot Manor Hotel or Hotel Ranga, but remember we can craft a break bespoke to you. Do contact us to let us know your thoughts on what you would like your Northern Lights Holiday to be.
