Join Fraser Cain, science communicator extraordinaire, spending 7 amazing days in one of the most exotic countries with the darkest skies on Earth:

  • Hunt for the Northern Lights on four separate nights*, including a boat trip in the bay outside Reykjavik

  • Explore the geothermal fields of Geysir and Strokkur

  • Check out the huge Gullfoss waterfall

  • Hang around the cool town of Vik on the southern coast

  • Take a dip in the Blue Lagoon

  • Explore Thingvellir Park's rift valley

Bonus: you get to hang out with Fraser Cain of UniverseToday.com! He'll entertain you with talks on everything from astronomy to the aurorae to the wonders of the dark sky above. PLUS he'll be on all the tours and at all the meals to personally answer your burning questions about the universe!

*We all know that we can't control the weather (yet). We may end up just staring at the clouds all night. That's fine, because we'll be together, talking science!
