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, 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!

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.
