Northern Lights Hunt in Iceland

Northern Lights Hunt in Iceland

The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis are an enchanting spectacle in Iceland’s skies. When you see the Northern Lights dancing across the night sky, you will be awestruck by this magical wonder. Blown towards the earth by the solar wind, charged particles enter the earth's atmosphere and collide with gas particles. These collisions emit light that we perceive as the dancing lights of the north. On this trip you stay 4 nights in the Capital, Reykjavik, and go on evening tours hunting for the Northern Lights. You will also see some of the amazing natural scenery of the South of Iceland.

Day 1: Arrival and Northern Lights Hunt

Arrival and Northern Lights Hunt

Arrival in Keflavik, Iceland in the morning.
Transfer to accommodation at hotel, located in central Reykjavik
Northern Lights Hunt Tour in the evening.
The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis are a spectacular natural phenomenon, often seen dancing around in fantastic colors across the Icelandic Arctic sky.
The Northern lights are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. That creates this wonderful light effect, known as the Aurora Borealis. *Please note that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings, therefore, cannot be guaranteed.


Day 2: Golden Circle Day Tour

Golden Circle Day Tour

Pick up from hotel in the morning. The Golden Circle needs little introduction: it includes some of Iceland’s most stunning sights. You will see the hot spring Strokkur shoot a column of water up to 30 meters (98 ft.) into the air every 4-8 minutes – a thrilling experience that just never gets old. We also visit the magnificent Gullfoss (Golden Falls) waterfall, created where the river Hvítá tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 m (105 ft.) deep. The tour also includes the historical and geological wonder that is Þingvellir National Park, where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimeters per year.


Day 3: The Capital, Reykjavik and Surroundings

The Capital, Reykjavik and surroundings

Reykjavik is an exciting modern city with lots to see and do, or if you want to relax visit one of the many spas and swimming pools. Walking in Reykjavík is highly recommended, as many attractions are within walking distance from the hotel area. Reykjavik’s old town is small and easy to walk around. The houses have some very distinct features; most notably their brightly colored corrugated metal siding. Plan to spend at least a couple hours just wandering around, taking in the city. And for further feasts of the eyes, there are several museums and art galleries in the city, most of them within easy reach of the downtown area.

Day 4: Glacier Walk and Northern Lights: (Optional Day Tour)

Glacier Walk and Northern Lights: (Optional Day Tour)

On this day tour, we combine two winter highlights, a glacier walk and a search for the spectacular Aurora Borealis for an amazing day out in nature. We start by heading to the Sólheimajökull glacier tongue where we enjoy a safe and easy glacier walk up on to the ice field. As we explore all the features of the glacier such as water cauldrons, crevasses, ridges, and waterways, we learn more about the Icelandic glaciers. From the glacier, we head to the powerful Skógafoss waterfall before we enjoy a traditional Icelandic dinner at a local restaurant. As we head out into the night looking out for those magical Northern Lights, we pay a mandatory stop at the lit up Seljalandsfoss waterfall.
