Northern Lights Tour from Reykjavik: Lobster Dinner, Lava Caves and Eyrarbakki
- Get inside tips from a local
- Get off the beaten track in a 4x4
- Informative, friendly and professional guide
In your quest to see the mystical Northern Lights for yourself, your expert guide will collect you by jeep from your Reykjavik hotel, and whisk you away to find the best aurora sightseeing spots that only the locals know.
As the Icelandic skies need to reach an optimum level of darkness before the lights appear, head off first to explore the lava caves under the Blue Mountains, about 25 minutes from the center of Reykjavik. As you walk down into the caves with your guide, learn about volcanic activity that produced this magical subterranean wonder world. See fascinating rock formations and glistening icicles – a sight to remember!
After you’ve worked up an appetite, dinner is the next item on your evening agenda. At the acclaimed seafood restaurant Rauda Husid, in the quaint coastal village of Eyrarbakki, a two-course feast awaits. With your guide, dine on the restaurant’s renowned Icelandic lobster, plus a dessert of your choice. Drinks are available at your own expense.
The Northern Lights can only be seen far away from city lights, so the countryside around tiny Eyrarbakki is the ideal spot for catching the show. With cloudless weather (and a little bit of luck!) you should be able to witness the stunning, elusive Northern Lights before returning to your Reykjavik hotel.

Excellent tour! We were picked up in a super jeep which holds a max of 12 people. Gilli was our guide for the evening. First, we hiked approximately 300 meters into a lava tube, where Gilli was very informative about how they were formed. I would recommend good hiking boots or supportive shoes. Then, we had a fabulous lobster dinner with the most decadent waffle dessert I've ever had. to top off the evening we hunted for approximately an hour and were able to see the northern lights. What an awesome performance they had for us. This was a tour of a lifetime. Thank you Gilli for a fabulous evening!

Excellent, excellent! Our guide, Christian, was knowledgable, kind and fun! The cave experience was outstanding. The dinner was absolutely wonderful and lovely and the lobster was very tasty! Finally, Christian knew exactly where to look for the Northern Lights. His local knowledge paid off for us as, from talking to other tourists, I was the only one with success at seeing and photographing the northern lights during the week I was in Iceland. Finally, Christian helped with photography. I have limited experience with photographing at night and he had lots of tricks up his sleeve to help me get some fun photos! This was a great tour!
