The Glacier Walk and Northern Lights Tour

The Glacier Walk and Northern Lights tour combines two of the most popular activities in Iceland, walking on a glacier and viewing the Northern Lights! On this tour, you will travel to the beautiful South Coast of Iceland. Here you’ll walk on the Sólheimajökull glacier and see some beautiful waterfalls. In the evening you’ll feast on a delicious, Icelandic lamb meat soup before going on a Northern Lights hunt. All combined, this tour makes for an amazing day on Iceland’s south coast!

After pickup in Reykjavík, you will start the day by heading out to the South Coast. You will start your exploration by visiting the Sólheimajökull glacier tongue. Here you will go on a safe and easy glacier hike with expert guides. Wearing crampons, you’ll discover this beautiful glacier and its features. These include water cauldrons, crevasses, and waterways. During the glacier walk, you’ll also learn more about the Icelandic glaciers and the landscape that surrounds you.

Afterward, you’ll visit the stunning Skógarfoss waterfall. With a width of  15 meters and a 60-meter drop, Skógarfoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland. In this area, you will enjoy a delicious traditional meal at a local restaurant. After dinner, you’ll head out on a hunt for the Northern lights.
