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 4x4 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!
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. Þingvellir is one of Iceland’s most historic sites as it was here that Iceland’s first parliament was founded in the year 930 AD. From Þingvellir 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,
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.
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.
