Itinerary

Information

family posing for picture with Northern Lights

Traveling to the volcanic eruption site is very easily accessible for people who are willing to put in the effort of hiking to witness seeing famous eruption site and lava formations. During this tour, you will see the recently erupted volcano site where you can really see newly formed land. During the volcano eruption in 2021 March, 19th lava flowed from the volcano cone into the valley, slowly but surely filling it up. Now, you will see the formed lava field and the newly-appeared crater. This offer should be on your bucket list, don't miss it! 

Our minibus tour to see the Northern Lights is one of our most popular tours. We are guided by the best available aurora and cloud forecast to optimize your chance of seeing the aurora dance across the night sky. Due to its proximity to the Arctic Circle and the magnetic pole, Iceland's auroral activity is some of the most intense in the Northern Hemisphere.

Please note: We reserve the right to adjust the itinerary and/or choose different routes depending on conditions.

Pick-up from Reykjavik: 

  • 8:00 am from 1st September to 15th September  
  • 10:00 am from September 16th to 15th March 
  • 8:00 am from 16th March to 15th April

For the Northern Lights adventure, pick-up is at either 20:30 or 21:30, depending on the season. You’ll find the actual pick-up time in the booking process and on your final voucher. Picking everyone up can take up to 30 minutes and your patience is much appreciated.

i did a volcano hike with our tour guide Vjeran. He told us very important information and made us laugh. Most of all, he helped me a lot because I am afraid of heights. I couldn't have done this without Vjeran. Thank you very much <3
