Day 1: Northern Lights Explorer:The mesmerizing sight of the dancing colors and shapes on the dark arctic sky will leave you awestruck. First, your Northern Lights guide will pick you up at your hotel in an custom-built 4×4 super jeep. On the search for the Northern Lights you will travel through some of Iceland’s most spectacular natural sights by night time with a very informative and experienced guide. The best part: The super jeeps give us the flexibility to go off of the beaten path, where big tour buses can not reach giving us a better chance to enjoy the Northern Lights without the discomfort big crowds. Venture into the night with us for front row seats on a chase to see the spectacular, unique and ever changing show that are the Northern Lights!

– Day 2: Golden Circle and Snowmobiling: The Golden Circle tour allows visitors to get in touch with some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena. Our first stop is at the Þingvellir National Park 40 min due east of the city. From there we head along gravel tracks toward the world-renowned geothermal area around the Geysir hot spring where you can witness gurgling bubbling water burst 25 meters high. This is the one spouting hot spring that all such phenomena on Earth are named after. From there we continue on to Gullfoss, “the Golden waterfall”, with practically no limit to how close you can stand next to it. Gullfoss is a great sight with water rushing down three steps of lava layers exhibiting breathtaking power and grandeur.
Next we kick the action into higher gear and go for a snowmobiling tour on Langjökull, Iceland’s second largest glacier. Here you will experience the chance to maneuver a snowmobile through the glacier’s endless vastness of white snow.
Required: A valid driving license to drive the snowmobiles. Snowmobiles seat 2 persons.

– Day 3: Blue Ice:Here is your chance to hike an immeasurably magnificent Glacier. This trip will take you to the frozen glacial tongue called Sólheimajökull. It is a rugged, raw and ever changing hub of ancient frozen water- truly a phenomenon. On this tour we will explore the crevasse riddled outlet glacier. With its amazing ice formations, sinkholes and jagged ridges, it is truly an unforgettable experience. We will walk along the beautiful glacier and also test our ice climbing skills. We will provide you with all the tools you need: ice axes, crampons and safety lines. On our return journey to Reykjavik, we will stop at the beautiful waterfall, Skógafoss. On this trip you will be enriched with a unique experience along the ICE-landic glacier.

– Day 4: Blue Lagoon:With water at 37-40°C (98-104°F), year-round, the Blue Lagoon is the perfect place to enjoy a natural hot bath. Consisting of Silica, Algae & Minerals, this hot spot will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated, all while in the comfort of one of the most unique places in the world.

Day 1: Northern Lights Super Jeep Adventure

Super Jeep Northern Lights tours in Iceland

Pickup is around 21:30 from your accommodation or a nearby location in Reykjavík. The start times for our Northern Lights tours vary a little from day to day. The correct time will be stated on your itinerary. Picking everyone up can take 30 minutes, so you may have to wait, but please be ready at your pickup point at the time stated in the email.

Our custom-built Super Jeeps can take you to rugged places where regular buses dare not venture. On this tour, we’ll go wherever necessary to catch the aurora borealis. Are you up for the excitement of a true Northern Lights safari?

Our specialist Northern Lights guides will make sure you get the best chance to see this natural phenomenon far away from the city lights. The various ways in which they manifest is all part of the excitement! Will they be transparent green glows, rippling softly, or intense jewel colors scintillating in powerful curtains across dark skies? While green and yellow are the most common colors, we sometimes catch other colors, such as violet, blue, or even the rarest of them all, red. Red auroras are more common in Iceland than anywhere else in the world.

Northern Lights tours are always, in a way, unpredictable. The cloud and aurora forecasts will determine the direction we take as we head away from city lights. In the velvety darkness of the countryside, the colors of the aurora shine more clearly, and the stars will shine brighter. This tour is also a treat for astronomy enthusiasts!

To cap off the night, we’ll offer hot chocolate, and even a touch of Brennavín, the famous Icelandic liquor, for the braver souls among us.

You can’t wear too many clothes on a Northern Lights tour, so be sure to dress appropriately. – when things chill down just remember really cold frosty weather, those frost particles give the Aurora a greater effervescence!

Please note: The northern lights can never be guaranteed to show even when the forecast is good. We cancel tours when the conditions are unsuitable.

 
 
 

Day 2: Golden Circle, Super Jeep & Snowmobiling Adventure

glacier-snowmobiling-tour-Iceland

Pick up is at 08:30 am from your Reykjavík pick up point. Picking everyone up takes about 30 minutes but please be ready on time.

Þingvellir National Park is your first amazing stop, the site of Iceland’s first parliament, Alþingi, founded in 930 AD. This incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site is also a great geological wonder of the world and lies between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. Next on the agenda is the Geysir geothermal area to witness Strokkur geyser erupting torrents of boiling water skywards every 5 to 10 minutes. Last, we take you to see Gullfoss Waterfall (the Golden Falls), on the Hvítá (the White River), which flows all the way from Langjokull Glacier. Feel the extraordinary power as the water pours through the canyon, dropping 32 m in two stages, pivoting dramatically as it does so. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy lunch at Gullfoss Café (not included).

Now for the glacier! Our all-terrain vehicle will drive you to our remote but warm and welcoming Langjökull snowmobiling base. Langjökull is the second largest glacier in Iceland, covering a vast area of 953 m². It rises to 14,500 m above sea level and is surrounded by high mountain peaks. Your snowmobile specialist will give you an overview of your gear and driving instructions step-by-step, and then you’ll be ready to hit the slopes for an hour. A rip-roaring ride will get the adrenaline racing through your veins! As you skim across Langjökull, you’ll feel like you’re sailing across a high snow-capped plateau–a real-life magic carpet ride! Why settle for the ordinary when you can experience something as extraordinary as this?

After it’s over, we drive back to Reykjavik, arriving around 18:30 (6:30 p.m.).

Remember to bring: warm layers and weatherproof top layer, headwear, gloves, scarves, and good hiking shoes. A valid Driver’s License is required for all snowmobile drivers. Two people share a snowmobile. If you’re on your own, or you wish to ride solo, an additional fee of 6000 ISK is payable.

Glacier Hiking tour in Iceland

Pick up at 9:00 AM from your accommodation or a nearby location in Reykjavík. Please note: the pickup process can take up to 30 minutes but you do need to be ready and waiting at 09:00 AM.

Here is your chance to hike and climb on a majestic Glacier! This tour will take you onto the amazing frozen world of Sólheimajökull Glacier, a rugged, raw, and constantly evolving outlet glacier of Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. You’ll be joined by a professional glacier guide, who will gear you up with all of the necessary glacier equipment. Your guide will explain how the extraordinary ice formations of this crevasse-riddled outlet glacier were formed, you will see great sinkholes and jagged-toothed ice ridges. The glacier may seem peaceful, but it’s constantly shifting and changing. If you stand quietly, you’ll hear the cracks and groans as the ice adjusts and moves.

Those who feel up to the challenge can test their ice climbing skills on the glacier using ice axes, crampons, and safety lines. This glacier experience of a lifetime will leave you with unforgettable memories.

On the way back to Reykjavík, we’ll make a stop at Skógafoss, a sensational 60-m high waterfall, falling from the former sea cliff! Hike up 527 steps to the crest to look over the Fimmvörðuháls hike path and onto the lowland below.
