Overview

Embark on an unforgettable journey along the North Atlantic Coastline, witness the wondrous beauty of the south coast, and hunt for the spectacular Northern Lights!

As you start the tour from Reykjavik, on clear days you will catch a glimpse of the Hekla Volcano and in the distance the glacier-capped Eyjafjalljökull Volcano. Just a few kilometers off the coastline, you might be able to see the volcanic Westman Islands.

You will be visiting the 60-metre-high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, famous for the hidden pathway behind it. Spend some time at the powerful Skógafoss Waterfall with one of Iceland’s most stunning views a short hike away!

See the Sólheimajökull Glacier, en route to Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, with powerful Atlantic waves crashing on the sands. Be bowled over by the magnificent sight of the jagged basalt sea stacks and the huge basalt-column cave.

Explore the village of Vík, the southernmost village in Iceland, with a traditional Icelandic church overlooking the ocean and the three trolls of the black sand beach. Despite its small size (291 inhabitants) it is the largest settlement for 70 km.

Head back to Reykjavik after the first part of the tour. In the evening, embark on the hunt for the Northern lights.

Once you’ve been picked up from Reykjavik, you will be taken away from the bustling lit-up city to a location determined by experts as the best place to spot the Aurora Borealis.

Gaze up into the clear sky and enjoy the spectacle of the dazzling shades of greens, purples, and pinks that dance through the darkness. The spectacular natural phenomenon is often seen dancing around in fantastic colors across the Arctic sky.

The Northern Lights tour will be guided by specially trained Northern Lights guides who will tell you all about the phenomenon and give you helpful tips on how to click the best photos.
