Golden Circle & Northern Lights via Reykjavik Sightseeing

What a day! First take Iceland´s famous Golden Circle Tour that showcases three of Iceland´s most beautiful natural wonders and drive through some of the country´s most picturesque landscape.
Then when night falls we set off hunting for the magical & mysterious Northern lights.

The Golden Circle Tour is in the morning, which allows for a 3 to 6 hour interval before heading off on the Northern Lights tour. That interval is the perfect opportunity to grab dinner. 

The Golden Circle Tour is where we visit the country´s three iconic natural treasures: Þingvellir National Park, where the American and Eurasian plates have been pulling apart; the erupting geyser that sends water and steam spouting skywards; and the spectacular Gullfoss Waterfall where a glacial river thunders 32 meters into a canyon. When night falls we set off hunting for the magical and elusive Northern Lights. Of course it all depends on the weather forecast and visibility conditions as to whether we go, so do keep this in mind.
