This short getaway to Iceland offers insight into Iceland’s nature and cultural life, with two nights in Iceland’s capital and two nights in South Iceland, an ideal location for the search for the Northern Lights.

1
Reykjavik (Arrival)

Welcome to Iceland! On arrival at the airport, individual transfer by Flybus shuttle from Keflavik airport to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

Upon check in hotel, at own leisure.

Iceland is renowned for its otherworldly illuminations, the Northern Lights being one remarkable example. This particular phenomenon, also known as the Aurora Borealis, can be experienced in Iceland during the winter time, especially on those clear, crisp nights, where they appear in a variety of colours and intensity, either twirling gently in shades of milky green, or occasionally blazing in a wild and multi-coloured dance across the night sky.

Transfer by Flybus Airport shuttle. Pick-up from designated pick-up zone and location to be advised once booking has been made.

Reykjavik - Hella

At 09:00 meet your tour guide who shows the group the highlights of Iceland’s exciting capital.
Then head out to the Reykjanes Peninsula with its hot springs, mountains, bird cliffs, lighthouses and fishing villages. In the afternoon, soak in the warm mineral rich waters of the Blue Lagoon.
Drive along the south coast to arrive in the village of Hella where we stay for two nights.
In the evening, we hear about the Northern Lights from our tour guide at Árhús Cabins. Naturally, once darkness falls, you are out in the garden waiting for the Northern Lights.

NOTE: The Northern Lights are visible in the northern sky from September through April when the sky is clear and free of clouds. The tour is dependent on weather and therefore sightings are not guaranteed. Like many natural wonders. It is an ephemeral spectacle - the Northern Lights may be visible, they may appear for a bit and then be gone. Northern Lights are a winter event, you need to be prepared to wait outside while looking for them. It is best to dress very warmly, in layer, with good footwear, gloves, hats and whatever else makes you comfortable while you await this truly outstanding event.

Hella - Vik - Hella

Today we travel along the south coast. We reach the area beneath the Eyjafjallajökull volcano and glacier. We stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which plunges from the mountian. Next we visit Skógar folk museum, which contains an outstanding collection of farm and domestic artifacts from Iceland's past and several turf-built houses.
At lunch, we visit the 62 meter high Skógarfoss waterfall.
In the afternoon we offer an optional glacier walk on Sólheimarjökull’s glacier tongue.
If you book a trip without the glacier hike, the tour continues further south where you stroll on the famous Black Lava Beach at Reynisfjara, observe the Cap of Dyrhólaey and the Reynisdrangar Sea Cliffs before visiting the charming village of Vík.
In the evening there is another presentation about the Northern Lights. If the night is clear, you might see the Northern Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the heavens in dramatic shapes, colours, patterns and sizes.

Optional glacier hike: Duration of this activity is approximately 3 hours in total, about 90 minutes on the ice and about 30-40 min walk (one-way) from the car park to the glacier edge itself. Minimum age for the glacier hike is 10 years. You need to bring warm clothing, rain gear and hiking boots. The glacier hike can only be booked with the guide on day 2. You will have to fill in and sign an order form, once done a cancellation is not possible. Glacier hike bookings have to be finalised with the guide by noon on day 2 of the tour. Bookings afterwards cannot be accommodated as we need to order the glacier guides 24 hours prior to the tour. The special price for the group members is about EUR 100 per person. Payment is due with the glacier hike company on day 3.
