The “Northern Lights Winter Special” has return flights from the UK to Iceland with the carrier with all passengers given 23kg of checked bags.

Costing just £275pp, the normally rather expensive trip is much cheaper following the pandemic.

Flights operate from London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Manchester or Glasgow Airport.

Holidays abroad are still off the cards due to the UK lockdown, but the bargain deal is available when travelling between October 2021 and January 2022.

You also have to be quick, with the deal only available until March 14 – you can find the deal here.

Fancy staying longer? You can book extra days up to seven days if you want to explore Iceland, which includes the famous Blue Lagoon as well.

The Northern Lights can also sometimes be spotted over the UK, where there is little light pollution – with them last spotted in December 2020.
