Itinerary

Day 1 – Northern Lights Hunt

First, your Northern Lights guide will pick you up at your hotel in an custom-built 4×4 super jeep. On the search for the Northern Lights you will travel through some of Iceland’s most spectacular natural sights by night time with a very informative and experienced guide. Venture into the night with us for front row seats on a chase to see the spectacular, unique and ever changing show that are the Northern Lights!

Overnight: Your hotel/guesthouse in Reykjavik

Day 2 – Golden Circle and Snowmobiling

The Golden Circle tour allows visitors to get in touch with some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena. Our first stop is at the Thingvellir National Park, one of Iceland’s most historic sites as it was here that Iceland’s first parliament was founded in the year 930 AD. From Thingvellir we head along gravel tracks toward the world-renowned geothermal area around the Geysir hot spring. This is the one spouting hot spring that all such phenomena on Earth are named after. From there we continue on to Gullfoss (“the Golden waterfall”) where your proximity to its edge is so close you can feel the spray of the glacial water on your face. Next we kick the action into higher gear to get even closer to Iceland’s nature and go for a snowmobiling tour on Langjökull, Iceland’s second largest glacier.

Day 3 – Glacier Hike and Ice Climbing

Here is your chance to visit a glacier and not just any glacier, this trip will take you to the frozen glacial tongue that is Solheimajokull. It is a magnificent phenomenon, a rugged, raw and ever changing hub of ancient frozen water. We will explore the crevasse riddled outlet glacier with its amazing ice formations, sink holes and jagged ridges accompanied by an experienced glacier guide. Along the way, we will find an ice wall on the glacier and try our hand at ice climbing. We will provide you with all the tools you need: ice axes, crampons and safety lines, making sure you are very safe as you brave the heights. As we drive back to Reykjavik we will stop at the beautiful Skógarfoss waterfall.
