I’m taking my dad to Iceland as a surprise around this time next year but neither of us have been before and so I wanted some advice.
The main thing we want to do is see the northern lights! Is the end of March, start of April too late to guarantee a sighting? Our dates are flexible!
We want to stay in a place where there’s lots to do - we will however only be staying for 5 days. We are probably going to stay in an airbnb as they’re much more affordable and closer to town centres etc. But which area of Iceland is best to stay for the northern lights? We will be flying to Reykjavik from Manchester. If you suggest a place please can you tell me what there is to do close by.
