Day 1

We start the tour in West Iceland. You will be picked up in the morning by a guide and a driver and you will be heading straight towards the mountain Esja, which overlooks Reykjavík.

You will head on to Borgarfjörður, a region filled with historical heritage, Viking sailors reached land and settled there after leaving their homeland.

Reykholtsdalur Valley is your next location. There you can learn all about the forces of Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring. From there you will journey to the village of Reykholt, where Snorri Sturluson, the poet, lawmaker, and historian used to live during the Middle Ages. Snorri wrote many codices that are invaluable records of mythology and the Old Norse language.

Not far from there, you will find two very different but equally beautiful waterfalls, Hraunsfossar and Barnafoss. Hraunfossar is a series of streams rushing through dark lava fields and Barnafoss, a bright blue stream speeding through a narrow ravine.

You will then head to your accommodation for a restful sleep. Watch for the magical Aurora at night, especially if the sky is starry and clear.

Arriving at our hotel, (in the winter season) your guide will let you know what the chances are of seeing Northern Lights tonight and if the conditions are favourable. He will suggest places near the hotel, and if the sky is clear and the forecast is good, we can hope for the magic to begin.
Please be aware that the Northern Lights are a natural occurrence, and therefore, we cannot provide a guarantee of their appearance. Nevertheless, we will make every effort to guide you to the most suitable locations where the likelihood of witnessing them is high.
(Please keep in mind that this sightseeing is possible only in the winter time as Nature allows, usually from September to beginning of April)
