The Hotel Cabin is a modest base in a great location – Reykjavik’s waterfront is just a few minutes’ walk away and the main shopping street is about a 15-minute walk where you will also find the cities museums, high-design boutiques and first-class restaurants in the centre of Reykjavik. The hotel keeps things nice and simple but is a great base to explore the magical northern lights and the city of Reykjavik. This offer is extremely popular so we recommend you book early to avoid disappointment.
Due to its strategic location, the property is fairly close to the city centre, the city’s main shopping street and Kirunglan shopping mall. Only 600 meters away the Laugardalur valley recreation centre provides various entertaining activities.
All 254 rooms are comfortable, basic-equipped and offer facilities such as television, telephone, cable/satellite TV and chargeable Wi-Fi connection.

Northern Lights Mystery Special
Join us for a mysterious trip, on a dark winter night. Any time from the onset of autumn darkness until the light nights of spring we can witness one of nature’s most spectacular displays; the phenomenon which we call the Northern Lights!
Far from the glow of the city, you will hunt for the elusive Aurora Borealis – known as the Northern Lights. Together we will search for these magnificent auroras. On a clear night, you may be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the sky in dramatic shapes, colors, patterns and sizes.
The Northern Lights are visible from September through April but can only be seen on a clear night. Therefore, we reserve the right to cancel this tour if the evening sky is heavily clouded or weather conditions are not favorable. A decision is taken daily at 6 pm whether the tour will take place or not. All hotels and booking agents in Reykjavik are informed by email about this decision so please contact the front desk of your hotel or the Tour Desk at hotel Saga, Loftleidir and Hilton to find out whether the tour will be operating .
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note while children under 11 can travel free of charge on this tour we will need to reserve a place for them in the coach, so please remember to let us know how many children are travelling and how old they are.

Before the start of this tour, our partners will always check the weather forecast around the south western part of Iceland. From experience, they then decide where each journey will lead you for the best possibilities to see the Northern Lights. If this tour goes ahead and in the unlikely event you do not get to see the Northern Lights no refunds can unfortunately be offered.
This tour does not operate between April 15th and August 31st as between these times it is simply too bright outside to be able to see them properly.
