Two of Icelands best attractions combined in one tour. Explore the Golden Circle during the day and hunt the Northern Lights during the night.
The beloved Golden Circle tour combines three of Iceland's most popular sights and in this case, we are adding a few of our favorite stops as well.
Our first stop is the Þingvellir National Park, an area with significant historical importance. The first Icelandic parliament was founded here in 930 AD, making it one of the longest-running political establishments in Europe. Furthermore, because of the location, it is possible to walk from the North-American to the European tectonic plate.
Let us head to the mother of all geysers, the mighty Geysir. Unfortunately, it is rarely active these days, but her little brother Strokkur is active every 5-8 minutes, so get your cameras ready in order to catch the action.
We are also visiting Gullfoss, the "golden waterfall". In the summertime, up to 130 000 liters of water are running down the depths every second. Witnessing the true power of Mother Nature will be quite a spectacle.
As we promised above, we would like to show you one of our favorites as well. Kerid is a volcanic crater that is located in the Grímsnes area, The caldera itself is 55 meters deep and 270 meters wide. Furthermore, at the bottom of the crater, we will find a lake with aquamarine blue waters.
Seeing the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) dancing on the Icelandic night sky is truly an experience that will last a lifetime.
This evening tour was created in order to increase your chances of seeing this natural phenomenon in the best possible way.
Our guides are experts when it comes to the Northern Lights and we always make the decision based on the forecast before 18:00, if we are heading out during the evening or not.
We focus on both quality and quantity, we never take more than 19 people on this tour and we always try the remote area without the big crowds. Onboard, we have cozy chairs and blankets to keep you warm, because the winter nights can be rather chilly. Furthermore, we are offering hot chocolate and the famous local "Kleina" pastries to make the experience even nicer.
Once the guide has confirmed the right spot, it is time for the hunt, get your cameras ready, and let the show begin. Do not worry, our knowledgeable staff can always assist you with your camera settings as well. In case you do not have a camera on you, your friendly tour expert will take some professional photos, to which you will have free access the next day.
Even with the best of guides, sightings can never be guaranteed. In case we can't find any lights on the tour, you are welcome to book again for a Group Northern Lights Tour another day. Just inform us before 14:00 the next day, so we can guarantee you a seat.
In case we can't operate the tour at all during your stay in Iceland, we will fully refund you the tour price.
