Full description
Your tour will start with a morning Reykjavik pick-up at authorized pick-up locations. You are then driven from the capital to Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where you will get the opportunity to follow a pathway that leads you behind the fall.

Traveling onwards through sensational scenery you will arrive at Sólheimajökull glacier for an easy glacier walk. Your certified glacier guide will issue you with crampons and other glacier equipment. As you explore you will learn about the glacier, its movements, crevasses and formation. You will even hear the ancient ice cracking when it moves.

Next up is the famous black sand beach at Reynisfjara to see the basalt columns and cave, the stunning Reynisdrangar cliffs and the impressive basalt rock stacks that rise above the Atlantic waves.

Lastly, you will come to the smashing Skógafoss waterfall, a pathway with 527 steps leads up the side of the waterfall, where you will get a view of the falls and the rainbows that appear on clear days. Iceland is a volcano country and on a clear day, you will get views of Eyjafjallajökull, Hekla and even the volcanoes around the Westman Islands, just off the coast. This tour has a friendly atmosphere and your questions are gladly answered by your guides.

You will be dropped off at your original pick-up location in Reykjavík around 7:00 PM. You will have free time to get some dinner, and then be picked-up again from your original point for the northern lights tour. From the capital you will go and hunt for the jewel-bright colors of the Northern Lights in the countryside. Green, yellow, white and sometimes purple northern lights are usually seen. Northern Lights can never be promised but your guide will do their very best.
