From Reykjavik: Northern Lights Guided Tour with Photo Shoot

1. From Reykjavik: Northern Lights Guided Tour with Photo Shoot

Join this 16 people maximum tour, You will be picked up from either your hotel, guesthouse, or bus stop starting 30 minutes before departure time (Please allow a thirty-minute window for everyone to be picked up). The journey will take us outside of the city limits away from any light pollution as the Northern Lights are harder to see from Reykjavík. To which location it is hard to say, it will depend on the cloud coverage and activity in the evening. The drive will be kept as short as possible and you might stop at several locations as the lights can be quite elusive and often it will be a waiting game for this beautiful phenomenon, which might be perfect while your guide sets up his camera for the free photo shoot of your group. On this journey, we are going to offer you blankets, hot chocolate, and snacks.

2. Reykjavik: 2-Day West Tour to Snæfellsnes and City Fjord

Day 1: After being picked up in Reykjavik, your tour begins by driving on the scenic route 1 to the town of Borgarnes.

Visit Glanni Watefall, Deildartunguhver - the most powerful hot spring in Europe and the Reykholt historic site. The last stop will be at Husafell - the woodland oasis. From here you can choose your next adventure. You can either go inside the biggest Lava Cave in Iceland called Vidgelmir or go on 4WD tour to visit relaxing Canyon Baths, stopping on the way to soak in the view of the two-tiered Langifoss Waterfall. You will then spend the night in Borgarnes - the capital of West Iceland sitting in the fjord. You will find there charming coffee houses and restaurants, as well as turf houses. The Northern Lights are also famous for playing their incredible symphony of lights in this area if the conditions are favorable. Day 2: On the second day, travel first to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, where you will enjoy watching seals play on the beach and take in some amazing sights at the many beautiful creations of nature in the area. See the Snæfellsnesjökull glacier looming as your tour continues around the peninsula. Admire the beautiful and photogenic mountain of Kirkjufell. Snæfellsnes is also home to the big seal colony that you will have a chance to see at Ytri-Tunga Beach, before heading back to Reykjavik.

Very relaxing

The 1st day was very relaxing, even a little bit boring. Maybe more suitable for elder people or whole family. The 2nd day was a bit more intense. We did some hicking, but not for long. Our guid Cristina was super nice and cheerful. Overall I enjoyed my trip and would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for something less intense.

The trip was excellent. The tour provider’s bus is comfortable and with wifi. The tour guide/driver, JK, gave good commentaries about the places that were visited. The time spent on each location is ample enough for enjoyment and observation.

The guide was great he kept driving to find a secluded place for us to enjoy the lights. Only disappointment was the photos he took of us were awful. He did serve hot cocoa which was nice as our hands were freezing.

Our 2 day tour was amazing! Both guides were excellent and full of information and found additional sites for quick stops when possible. Highly recommend!!

Great tour with great guide Ingo! Particularly in a storm, a solid rock.
