This day tour combines two winter highlights, a Glacier Walk and a search for the spectacular Aurora Borealis. The tour starts by heading to Solheimajokull glacier tongue where you enjoy a safe and easy glacier walk up on to the ice field.
Exploring all the features of the glacier such as water cauldrons, crevasses, ridges and waterways, we learn more about the Icelandic Glaciers. From the glacier we continue to the powerful Skogafoss waterfall before enjoying a traditional Icelandic soup dinner at a local restaurant. As we head out into the night looking out for those magical Northern Lights, we make a mandatory stop at the lit up Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Combination of the two winter highlights makes for a perfect day !
