Itinerary for the Northern Light tour
Our driverguide will pick you up in Reykjavik on day 1 and you'll either head to north or south Iceland, depending on weather conditions. During the day you'll do some sightseeing and visit some of Iceland´s nature attractions on the way.
If you travel north places of interest may include the following: Hraunfossar waterfall that flows out of the lava, Barnafoss waterfall, scenic fjord Hvalfjordur, Deildartunguhver, the most powerful geothermal spring in Iceland and Europe, Thingvellir (Pingvellir) national park, where Iceland's parliament was founded and. You'll also have an off-road adventure in the Super Jeep, for example by driving up onto Langjökull glacier, or travelling from Thingvellir national park across the Kaldidalur mountain track. Depending on the weather these are hotels you might stay at:
Hotel Blonduos by Hunafloi Bay and the river Blanda.
Hotel Varmahlid in Skagafjordur, an area which is known for its fine breed of Icelandic horses.
Travelling south you'll find different but equally beautiful sites, for example: Seljalandsfoss, one of the taller waterfalls in Iceland, a small path will take you behind the waterfall to enjoy a different view of it, Dyrholaey peninsula which forms an arc into the ocean and from where you can view Reynisdrangar, Hveragerdi greenhouse village, Skogafoss waterfall, Hekla volcano and the town of Vik i Myrdal. You'll also go off-roading on a black sand beach and travel onto Myrdalsjokull glacier.
These are examples of accommodation you might stay at in Southern Iceland:
Hotel Fljotshlid in Smaratun, a family run countryside hotel just outside of Hvolsvöllur
Hotel Geirland in the town of Kirkjubaejarklaustur, just west of Vatnajokull glacier
