Tour description
€288 per person

This tour combines two amazing winter highlights in Iceland: a Glacier Walk and a search for the amazing Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.

On Solheimajokull Glacier a safe and easy Glacier Walk on crampons will take you up on to the ice field where you will discover the different ice features, water cauldrons, crevasses and waterways.

After the glacier we stop at the Skogasafn museum, where you can see how the Icelanders lived in the past in small turf houses and learn the history of Icelandic inhabitants.

We then head to a local farm for a delicious traditional Icelandic meat dinner, followed with a drive into the night looking out for those magical Northern Lights.
