Overview
Experience the stark beauty of southern Iceland and seek out the Northern Lights on a 2-day tour from Reykjavik. Trace Iceland’s south coast by air-conditioned minibus and visit the stunning Seljalandsfoss and Skogagoss waterfalls, and black sand beach at Vik before an evening outing in search of the fluorescent Northern Lights. The next day, see the icebergs of Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon and finish on a high note: with a walk on Vatnajökull, Europe’s biggest glacier, to explore a luminous blue ice cave. Overnight hotel accommodation, breakfast and guided tours included.
What to Expect
Day 1:
Begin your 2-day tour in the early morning with a convenient Reykjavik pickup by minibus. Head east out of Reykjavík on the famed ring road towards the south coast. First stop is Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you have the chance to walk all the way around the waterfall and see it from every angle. Along the drive towards Skaftafell make further stops at Skógafoss waterfall and Vik, with its famous black-sand beach and basalt columns. From there head to your accommodation for the night. As well as a relaxed evening you also have the chance to hunt for the northern lights. During the winter months, out in the countryside with no light pollution, there's a good chance of spotting these colorful and fast-moving lights.

Please note: Accommodation will be arranged at Hótel Skaftafell from January 15th to March 15th 2017. From December 1st - January 15 accommodation will be at Hof 1 Hotel.
The hotels detailed above are as a reference only and are subject to change based on availability and other conditions beyond our control. An alternative hotel with similar standards, quality, and comfort may be offered as a substitute.

Day 2:
The first stop on your second day is the famed Jökulsarlon Glacier Lagoon with its floating ice bergs. From there head to highlight of the tour, the ice cave where your certified guide is already waiting for you with all necessary glacier equipment. A short walk brings you to the entrance of the ice cave. The cave's stunning formation offers great photo opportunities. On the way back, make a final stop at Skaftafell National Park. You will arrive back in Reykjavik between 9pm and 11pm.

Great guide but in house customer service is slow to respond.

My guide Palmi was great! The tour itself was fantastic. The staff who responds to emails seems to be overwhelmed and very slow to respond. I called a couple of times to confirm my scheduled trip and getting a human took some time.
