To which location it is hard to say, it will depend on the cloud coverage and activity in the evening. The drive will be kept as short as possible and you might stop at several locations as the lights can be quite elusive and often it will be a waiting game for this beautiful phenomenon, which might be perfect while your guide sets up his camera for the free photoshoot of your group.

From Holsvollur: Midsummer Golden Circle Private Day Trip

6. From Holsvollur: Midsummer Golden Circle Private Day Trip

During early summer in Iceland, the midnight sun does not set. Therefore we have 24 hours of daylight for a few weeks! Experiencing Iceland at its finest, with few people around and nearly no cars on the road, we’ll walk around beautiful Þingvellir National Park and UNESCO Heritage site. We’ll get a close look at how the tectonic plates drifted apart and where the first settlers of Iceland founded the world´s oldest parliament Althingi (Alþingi) in the year 930. The scenery is amazing and visiting this historic place at night gives it a strange mystic feel. We also visit Geysir area to see the famous ‘Geysir’ which all other geysers are named after. There the lively geyser ‘Strokkur’ entertains us with an eruption every 5-10 minutes, reaching a height up to 25 meters! After we’ve observed all the various geothermal features of the area we continue on to Gullfoss waterfall, the Queen of all Waterfalls in Iceland. Join us for a unique experience of Iceland at night!

Hershey or hers was informative. Well worth the price despite the snow during the day. The lady that took us to northern lights was amazing. We were lucky enough to be the first bus there and to see the northern lights. This company has amazing tour guides. Very impressed!

We had a great day and the attractions were amazing - although I enjoyed more the tour in the South of Island. Informative and well prepared guide. We were just a bit disappointed that we could not properly see the Northern Lights. But this didn’t depend on the tour.

Daytime part of the trip was amazing. The guides we're great - really friendly, knowledgeable and their English was great. Sadly the Northern lights were a "no show", but we had a fantastic day. Would absolutely recommend.

It's really amazing, the first time we didn't see it well, but there was no problem and they booked us the next day and it was wonderful

This tour is great for first timer in reykjavik. The guide, Eric, shared many interesting facts about Iceland.
