Full description
See Iceland’s Golden Circle on an afternoon and search for the Northern Lights on the same evening tour from Reykjavik. See the ancient geological formations and parliament site at Thingvellir National Park; watch the Strokkur waterspout at Geysir; and admire the beautiful Gullfoss Waterfall. As darkness falls, seek out the Northern Lights, escaping light pollution to experience the incredible light show. Numbers are limited to six people for a more personalized experience. Travel inland in a comfortable 4x4 designed to negotiate rugged terrain, and hear from your guide about Iceland’s volcanic geology. Your first stop is Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn how the landscapes have been formed over millennia, and absorb the contrast between the lush green vegetation and rich, black ground. Travel on to Geysir, a geothermal field of hot springs, steam vents and the remnants of an old volcano. Continue to Gullfoss Waterfall, whose name means ‘Golden Falls,’ a reference to the shimmering, multi-colored mists that can sometimes appear above the waters. As dusk falls, begin your quest for the Northern Lights. Iceland is one of the world’s best places to see them, and your all-terrain 4x4 and knowledgeable guide will allow you to identify and access the best potential viewing sites. The pulsating colors of the lights, usually green and blue, split the darkness and sometimes shine brighter than the moon.

Adam is a gem! we were very lucky cause we ended up having a private tour since we were only in two. the car is great, the tour itself also. Adam went above and beyond. showed us extra places, left us alone where needed or assisted with very useful information where needed. He is very knowledgeable and explained how to spot and find the Northern lights. if you really want to know about volcanoes in the area ask about those too! highly recommend this tour. it was a perfect day!
