If holidaymakers book the package option, they can include a guided Northern Lights tour, as well as flights with 22 kilogram bag allowance and a choice of three or four star hotels in Reykjavik.

Trips to the Blue Lagoon and Golden Circle can also be added for an additional cost.

The ultimate city break

“Iceland is a destination that is rapidly growing in popularity thanks to its abundance of natural wonders, such as the Northern Lights, Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon,” said Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet.com and Jet2holidays.

“As well as geothermal spas, geysers, natural parks and the incredible Aurora Borealis, Iceland also offers the ultimate city break destination in stylish Reykjavik, which is the world’s northernmost capital.

“This programme of dedicated trips to Iceland gives our customers even more choice for winter 2019.”
