Iceland – Winter Birthday Bash
Well, well, now it’s time to celebrate my birthday! Here is my celebration and my itinerary for my Birthday extravaganza to Iceland. Now featuring Iceland – my trip was bought without much planning because my daughter said I should celebrate my birthday by going to one of the places on my bucket list. KC, my daughter, and her family are coming to my home for Christmas. Therefore, I’m squeezing this trip to Iceland in as my extra special gift to me in between the holidays. So you might ask – why Iceland? I’ve always wanted to go to Iceland, to hunt for the Northern Lights. There is no guarantee that I will find the stars or if it will be warm enough to take the photos. But, I believe, I will find the Aurora Borealis and capture them on my camera.
Now I am not saying when I am going – I don’t want the bad guys to know my travel plans. But, it is scheduled. Oh yes, one other thing, never tell the world your travel plans by posting them on Facebook or the web. Here is my itinerary for Iceland – Winter Birthday Bash.
Birthday Special – Iceland Air Special Offer Northern Lights
The flight takes 7.5 hours from Seattle – it is a direct flight. Don’t forget, there are Hop off deals available, in case you want to add Iceland on to your next trip to Europe. Here is a way to do it. On either leg of your journey, from the Americas to Europe, Icelandair offers Hop off deals. These deals allow you to hope off and stay for up to three nights. I have heard some people have gotten seven nights Hop off deals. Deals sell out fast. So, if you see a deal to Iceland, I recommend – buy it quickly.
Special gear needed: A tripod! and remember the light only shines for 3-4 hours in the winter when the Lights are the best. But, there is no guarantee you will see the lights so bring a big warm coat! And don’t forget your heavy boots, silk long johns, and ski pants.
Why buy your tickets from Icelandair?
Icelandair offers low-cost flights to Europe from Seattle. When you book your flight, you’ll schedule your layover if you are taking advantage of the unique Hop off deal.
My tour includes activities, a hotel, and flights. I had to keep reminding myself; the weather and the daylight are what make Iceland unique in the winter. Nature controls everything and all activities. So for now, while I’m planning I am focused on the forecast and whether it will snow or rain.
