Northern Lights & Blue Lagoon Tour

Winter Daily About 10 hours Reykjavík with pick up included Very easy Min 2 years old

The Blue Lagoon and the Northern Lights are two natural wonders that make Iceland unique. This 10hr combo tour begins with a trip to The Blue Lagoon geothermal spa before heading off in search of the Northern Lights.

We’ll pick you up at your guesthouse/hotel in Reykjavik and shuttle you to the Blue Lagoon, the journey is just under an hour. Once you’ve arrived you’ll enter the mineral rich waters, which offer a unique and first-hand experience of Iceland’s plentiful geothermal springs. The warm waters offer a perfect way to relax and reflect upon the natural beauty of this island and is a must see when traveling to Iceland.

Next, we’ll whisk you away far from the bright city lights that pollute the sky, where our expert Northern Lights guides will find the perfect viewing location (which varies day-to-day depending on weather conditions). The commute can be anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes outside of the city to guarantee the very best visibility.

The Northern Lights (also known as Aurora Borealis) are Iceland’s main attraction during the cold winter months. The Auroras are a magnificent phenomenon, and an absolute must-see for every traveler. This tour is guided by specially trained Northern Lights guides, who are both knowledgeable and always happy to help, just ask! Our guides have decades of experience in analyzing the Northern Lights forecast.
