Experience two of Iceland's winter highlights on this day trip from Reykjavik: a glacier walk and the spectacular Northern Lights! This is an amazing day out on the South Coast of Iceland with stops at Skógafoss waterfall and Seljalandsfoss waterfall plus a traditional Icelandic dinner at a local restaurant is included in the price.

On this Glacier Walk and Northern Lights day trip, one of our highly qualified driver-guides will start by picking you up at your selected accommodation in Reykjavík. From there we head out along the south coast of Iceland. First we set our course for the Sólheimajökull glacier tongue where we will enjoy a gentle glacier walk up on the ice field. This walk is very safe and easy, and perfect for first timers. All the glacier safety equipment is provided but please make sure to wear some good hiking boots or shoes that come up high on the ankle to provide you with support. It can also be cold on the ice, so please dress approriately, if you are unsure of your equipment please notify your guide during pick up. As we explore all the features of the glacier such as water cauldrons, crevasses, ridges, and waterways, you will havr the opportunity to learn all about Icelandic glaciers. From the glacier, we will head to the powerful Skógafoss waterfall, which makes a great photo stop before enjoying a traditional Icelandic dinner at a local restaurant (included). After dinner, we will head out into the night looking out for those magical Northern Lights. During our hunt for the mysterious Aurora Borealis we will also make a stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall which is illuminated at night. Weather and Aurora forecast permitting, your guide will take you to some of the best locations for spotting the Northern Lights before returning you back to your Reykjavik accommodation in the late evening.
