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. Traveling to the volcanic eruption is very easy for people who are willing to put in the effort of hiking to witness this magnificent natural spectacle. If anything should be on your bucket list, it is to experience a live volcano where you can really see new land being formed. Lava flows from the volcano cone into the valley, slowly but surely filling it up. You will see steam and gases rising from the growing lava field and the newly formed crater. With this offer, you can experience both! 

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