Aurora Borealis on the South Coast
A trip down through the south coast to chase the magical Northern Lights.
This is a tour for people who might want to check out more of the sights around the south coast of Iceland while looking for the Northern Lights. Finding the aurora can be tricky as their visibility is dependent on the weather conditions, so this tour makes absolutely sure that you'll see the best sights that the south of Iceland has to offer. On clear days you will see Hekla Volcano and in the distance the glacier-capped Eyjafjalljökull Volcano rises above the coastal mountains at its base. Just a few kilometres off the coastline you might be able to see the volcanic Westman Islands. Our first stop is at the 60-metre high Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, famous for the hidden pathway behind it. We then stop at the powerful Skógafoss Waterfall where a short walk up a flight of steps will reveal one of Iceland´s most scenic views.
We will stop at Sólheimajökull Glacier, on our way to Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach. There the powerful Atlantic waves crash on the black sands. You will see the jagged basalt sea stacks and the huge basalt-column cave, a sight that will take your breath away. Our last stop will be Vík, the southernmost village in Iceland.
