This is an amazing trip - and unlike some of the others I've done - you actually get an astronomer to guide you, so you know what to look for and when! I did it last year and was so impressed I've already booked for this year too.
The small town of Seydisfjordur in east Iceland has got to be one of the most beautiful in the country, it's reached by a spectacular drive over a mountain - the road is the highest in Iceland at 650m above sea level.
The real find here is a tiny cinema and cafe called Mini-Cine, which is run by an English guy from Brighton and his Icelandic wife. If you want a decent cup of tea and some fruit cake, then this is the place to come to!
The films are great as well. When I visited I caught a screening of an old Russian film, Man with a Movie Camera, which makes a refreshing change from the offerings at my local multiplex.

Get to Iceland without flying. Once a week a ferry goes from Lerwick (Shetland) to Seydisfjordur in eastern Iceland (May - Sept). There is the possibility to stop off in the Faroe Isles. Potentially rough crossing though, and it takes 30 hours.
