Join us on two of our most popular tours and enjoy two uniquely Icelandic adventures for a special price. Don´t miss your chance to visit the volcano eruption site, followed by an evening hunting for the elusive aurora borealis. Your day starts with your late morning Volcano hike tour after which you are dropped back to Reykjavík. There you can freshen up and enjoy dinner before the next chapter of your adventure begins, our evening northern lights hunting tour.
Our combo Northern Lights Tours afford you the opportunity to maximize your time and enjoy a sightseeing tour before your evening aurora hunting bus tour. But squeezing the maximum out of one day is not the only benefit as you also get a discount on both tours.
In spring 2021, a volcanic eruption began in Geldingardalur valley on the Reykjanes Peninsula. For many months, there was a constant stream of lava and magma spewing forth from beneath the earth’s surface, radically transforming the topography of this valley. New hills were formed around the larger craters of the eruption and the valley were transformed into lava fields which now covered many square kilometers.
After a period of inactivity, a new eruption began in August 2022 in the nearby valley at Meradlir. Excitingly, this eruption has been estimated to be 5-10 times more powerful than the one at Fagradalsfjall.
It is fascinating to behold the scale and wonder of this natural phenomenon, to witness a brand new landscape forming before your very eyes.
After your hike, you will be dropped off back to Reykjavík in the early evening and will have approximately 2 hours of leisure time before the next part of your tour.
A phenomenon that attracts visitors in droves to Iceland and no wonder. Nothing can prepare you for the majesty of a full power display of the Northern Lights.
Stunning Aurora light display
Our Northern Lights Bus Tour from Reykjavík takes you to where the action is. We study closely cloud coverage forecasts as well as the KP-index which measures the strength of atmospheric aurora activity. We only go on tour when we believe there is a good chance of catching the dancing green belts of the aurora.
We venture beyond the city light pollution and usually stops in a few locations along the way. We will do everything we can to introduce you to the lights and our local and knowledgeable guides will entertain and impart knowledge and stories along the way.
As an added bonus, you will enjoy homemade hot-chocolate to help keep the cold at bay.
