Return to Short Breaks Menu

week away in Iceland in the hope of seeing the Northern Lights...

Miche at Heathrow tucking into a pulled pork sandwich...

After a very pleasant flight with Icelandair we arrived in the dark, in weather that would have closed some UK airports - you could barely see the runway for spindrift being blown across it in the strong wind.

Hungry work this travelling, after settling into the hotel we wander into a cold and snowy Reykjavik for dinner. After rejecting treats such as Puffin and Minke Whale, we go for a traditional Icelandic platter including herring, salmon, lamb, pork and monkfish...
