  • Get inside tips from a local
  • Get off the beaten track in a 4x4
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
The Northern Lights, or ‘Aurora Borealis’ to give it its formal title, is the captivating natural light display that can only be seen in high latitude locations. This unique phenomenon appears when solar wind particles collide with atoms, transmitting the energy created into an auroral glow. Usually a fluorescent green color, the glow can change within split seconds or stay as a mesmerizing haze for hours.

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.

We had a great time!! First stop - explore a lava cave. I wasn't expecting to climb into the lava cave (don't ask me what I was expecting, because I don't know). Our guide was informative and extremely friendly. From there we went to a restaurant in Eyrarbakki for the lobster dinner. We received 5 small lobster tails each that were the sweetest best tasting lobsters EVER!! I am gluten/dairy free and had mine plain and they were fantastic. Unfortunately, the weather was not cooperating and we were unable to see the lights. However, it was definitely worth the trip.

Our guide/driver 'Thor' was personable and informative. Caving was not too difficult but there is a little bit of 'scrambling' and you needed to be mindful of your footing. Nice traveling with a smaller group. Dinner was delicious. Northern Lights were not very active-went looking next nite free.
