Spend the day on an amazing Golden Circle experience, see erupting geysers and marvel at the power of Gullfoss Waterfall. At night you will go on an exciting Northern Lights hunt, the sight of the Aurora Borealis is absolutely spectacular.
The Golden Circle Tour
• Thingvellir Park is the first stop on the way, a Grand National Park with the unique distinction of being the place where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates almost meet.
• Geysir is the next stop on the way where you can wonder at nature’s wondrous sight of hot geysers spouting high into the air at regular intervals. Strokkur is simply amazing as you will find.
• Gulfoss waterfall beauty is to be experienced and admired from close and this tour lets you do just that, taking you right to the edge.
• Faxi follows and this waterfall on the Tungufljot is a marvel of nature, a poetry in water cascading down 7 meters.
• Kerid volcanic crater is an experience of another kind, water that is calm and still and timeless except when the wind creates small wavelets.
Return to Reykjavik in the evening around 5:00 pm. Rest a while, freshen up, enjoy leisurely dinner and get set for the Northern Lights tour (weather permitting!).
Northern Lights Tour
The Golden Circle is one side of the coin. It would be incomplete without a Northern Lights tour for which Iceland is so famous. We start picking up the Northern lights from 8:30 pm.
It takes just 3 hours to get far and away from Reykjavik to view the Aurora Borealis. If the skies are clear and the conditions are just right you are in for a jaw-dropping spectacle. Some of our guests are so enamored they spend the entire night out there, lost in the wonder of creation.
