Sail on an elegant ship to Reykjavik, the Orkney Islands, and the Faroe Islands with food included on board including a Captain’s Gala Dinner

The Northern Lights is one of the most jaw-dropping natural spectacles to witness, as the night sky bursts into vivid swathes of pink and green.

This tour takes you to beautiful Iceland to search for this elusive phenomenon. You'll visit the capital, Reykjavik, and also venture out of the city to marvel at Iceland's landscapes. As you sail there'll be a series of inspiring craft workshops, from Northern lights lanterns to Silver plated seaglass jewellery.

March is a great time to spot the Aurora Borealis, with long nights and warmer weather than earlier in the season. The spring equinox means increased solar activity in the region and high chances of a shimmering display.

Along the way, you'll also stop off at Runavik, in the Faroe Islands, and Scotland's Orkney Islands. You'll sail aboard the elegant ship Ambition, where all your meals will be included, with a grand Captain's Gala Dinner and Farewell Dinner to look forward to.
