21 July, 2014: Naturetrek is offering its customers the chance to take a five-day tailormade holiday to west Iceland’s Snaefellsnes Peninsula, in search of killer whales, wintering birds and the breathtaking Northern Lights, for only £1395 per person.

The depths of the Arctic winter are the perfect time to take a tailormade holiday to this region of Iceland, as the rugged Snaefellsnes Peninsula becomes the stage for two of the natural world’s most spectacular performances. Over recent winters, large shoals of herring have been gathering in sheltered fjords off the peninsula’s northern coastline, and by far their most formidable nemesis is the ocean’s top predator, the killer whale. Pods of orca are now being seen regularly in the Grundafjord area, feasting on the fish there between the months of January and April.

This timing of the Orcas is very fortuitous, as the winter months are also the best time to step outside after dark and look skyward in the hope of witnessing nature’s most breathtaking light show, the Aurora Borealis. This spectacular event is renowned worldwide for its striking and unique beauty, and draws tourists to the northern regions of Europe each year in the hope of witnessing it. With this tailormade holiday to Iceland, Naturetrek is giving its customers the chance to do precisely that, and witness an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime event!

As specialists in wildlife holidays, Naturetrek provide their customers with the best and most knowledgeable guides for their tailormade tours, adding an extra dimension to what was already a rather appealing option for a nature-centric holiday.

This tailormade holiday to Iceland departs on the 13th, 18th and 23rd of March. Prices for this tour start at £1395 per person (with two people sharing). This fee includes return flights (London), most meals, hotel accommodation, transport and expert guiding.
