Short on time but big on adventure? Then you're the kind of traveller that UTracks has in mind for its new three-day Northern Lights winter walking tour in Iceland.
The guided walking tour of Iceland's Golden Circle includes between two and four hours of walking each day and is rated as "introductory to moderate".
It departs from the capital of Reykjavik and includes the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Thingvellir National Park, the glacier lagoon of Jokulsarlon and an ice cave at Vatnajokull glacier, along with walking on black-sand beaches and hiking with crampons on at Solheimajokull glacier.
Running between November and March, it's timed for the possibility of seeing the aurora borealis and would suit travellers looking to add a visit to Iceland on to a European trip.
UTracks' Iceland Northern Lights tour costs from $1690 per person twin share include accommodation, walking guide, internal transfers in a mini bus, and pre and post-tour hotel pick-ups.
- Departures are available from November 8 to March 28. See utracks.com or phone 1300 303 368.
