A tour that combines two of the most popular trips in Iceland. Explore the South Coast during the day and hunt the Northern Lights during the night.
Highlights of the tour:
Our first stop is Skógafoss Waterfall. It is one of the most iconic waterfalls in the country and was even featured in Game of Thrones. The waterfall’s 60m drop will keep you speechless for sure. Your guide will tell you all about the hidden treasure chest behind the waterfall and with some luck, you will be the first one to find it.
Now it's time to hit the road again. After a short ride, we stop at Reynisfjara black sand beach. The beach was once rated as one of the 10 most beautiful places in the world and as soon as you put a foot on the beach, you will know why. Basalt columns and the well-known Reynisdrangar rock formations await you. Not to mention the magnificent ocean waves you can watch there. Your guide will tell you all the interesting stories and sagas that are connected to this place.
We’ll make our way further East and visit Vík í Mýrdal, a picturesque fishing village. You’ll have some time to walk around there and admire this village that sits in the shadow of Mýrdalsjökull glacier.
Our next stop will be the ever-popular Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The waterfall lays underneath the well-known Eyfjallajokull, the volcano that erupted in 2010. If conditions allow, we take a walk behind the waterfall’s curtain before paying a visit to its nearby cousin Gljúfrabúi, found hidden from view in the mountainside. Gljúfrabúi (or Canyon Dweller) is a beautiful waterfall located at Hamragarðar in South Iceland, close to its better-known counterpart, Seljalandsfoss waterfall. It is one of the hidden gems of the South Coast, and thus an excellent spot for photographers and those seeking to admire nature in peace.
The next part of our journey is to hunt for the Northern Lights. Once we are away from light pollution, our guide will find a good spot to jump out of the car and prepare cameras.
We have cozy blankets on board to keep you warm while we wait for the lights.
To make it even more memorable, we’ll have:
to enjoy while we wait.
Our guides can assist you with the camera setting in case you need help. Our guides are experts in reading the weather forecast so they will know exactly where to take you to maximize your chances of experiencing this amazing phenomenon.
Based on the forecast, we always make the decision based on the forecast before 18:00, if we are heading out during the evening or not.
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 as soon as possible.
In case we can't operate the tour at all during your stay in Iceland, we will fully refund you the tour price.
