Unleash Iceland with TripAdvisor & Reykjavik Excursions
This new and original tour offers an interesting mix of activities that are uniquely Icelandic. It has three main points of interest: The lava tunnel, the Skyr Factory and the Northern Lights. Start underground, have a bite to eat and then search the skies for the magnificent Aurora Borealis.
The lava tunnel, Raufarholshellir is a large lava tube, 30 metres wide and 10 metres high, which means you can easily walk upright in it. It is an immensely colourful cave thanks to the different mineral types of rock. This incredible setting is illuminated by light from where the lava tube ceiling has caved in to let light through. It is spectacular and underground there is no need to worry about the weather.
The Skyr Factory is home to the beloved Icelandic Skyr, an Icelandic product which closely resembles yoghurt although it is technically more akin to cheese. It is less sweet than greek yoghurt and all the rage at high-end local restaurants for their desserts. You must try it during your vist to Iceland. Learn all about the process of making skyr at the Skyr Factory. In this tour you have the opportunity to taste the TripAdvisor skyr which probably recieves a glowing recommendation online.
After these stops, you will hunt for the northern lights. They are a spectacular natural phenomenon that occurs remarkably often on this island. If you are lucky enough to catch them, watch them dance over the night-sky with their ever changing shades of green and purple. If the weather conditions aren´t favourable, at least you didn´t waste your evening. Choosing this Northern lights tour is a good way to make sure that your northern lights hunt is worthwhile.
