Check out the Northern lights with a Jet2 Iceland holiday from £472pp | The Sun

JET2 is expanding its Iceland Northern Lights programme for winter 2023-24.

The holiday company will offer 135 flights and more than 25,000 seats.

The Northern Lights are on many travellers' bucket lists, and holidays with Jet2 include Northern Light tours as part of the package.

The Northern Lights – also known as Aurora Borealis – are the result of electrically charged particles from the sun, smashing into gaseous particles in our planet's atmosphere.

Colour variations occur when different types of gas particles collide with charged particles – the most common colour of the aurora is green, which is created when oxygen molecules about 60 miles above the ground react with the particles.

The flights to Iceland will depart from different airports across the UK, including Manchester, Leeds Bradford, Birmingham, Belfast International, Bristol, Edinburgh, East Midlands and Glasgow.
