Did you know Iceland has just been voted one of the top 10 safest countries to travel to? The statistics come from World Economic Forum’s 2017 Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report, and it couldn’t have been timed better.
Luxury holiday planners Luxe Travel are offering a new way to spend the Christmas holidays—hunting the northern lights in Iceland. From 22-28 of December this year, follow the magnificently vast natural light display on a luxury yacht, and trek across the icecaps on an exhilarating snowmobile adventure. You can even dress up like a Viking and have your photographs taken by a renowned specialist film photographer.
Iceland is the fifth happiest country in the world, and is home to both Glaciers and Volcanoes that make guided walks and ice climbing a thrilling endeavor. With 4,500 miles of glacier, there is much to be explored in Iceland. Visit Vatnajòkull National Park, the largest in Europe, or ascend Öræfajökull volcano, Iceland’s tallest peak.
It’s never too early to plan for a Christmas getaway.
