The company offers tours that include the northern lights, Golden Circle, and more
Winter is a wonderful time to visit Iceland, and one of the biggest attractions during the winter season are the spectacular northern lights which often look like they are putting on a show just for your pleasure. The green lights flicker and dance in the sky, changing colour and intensity, delighting all those who get a glimpse of the mysterious phenomenon. Reykjavík Excursions offers an array of exciting winter tours, including a guided northern lights hunt from mid-September to mid-April where a guide will drive you to the best areas to catch a glimpse of the beautiful auroras.
Spectacular South Shore Adventure
Reykjavik Excursions’ South Shore Adventure is the ideal tour for nature lovers interested in Iceland’s unique beauty. An experienced guide will take you along the south coast of Iceland, one of Iceland’s most scenic and popular regions, as far as the charming village Vík, which is surrounded by steep, beautiful bird cliffs.
Along the way, there are stops at the breathtaking Seljalandsfoss where you can have the unique experience of walking behind a waterfall, seeing through it like a curtain. The jaw-dropping and much-photographed Skógafoss waterfall, with its impressive 60-metre drop is another stop along the tour, along with Reynisfjara black sand beach. The 10-hour tour, which is available all year, also provides stunning views of glaciers, the black sand coastline and impressive rock formations. If you would like to have an extended south coast tour, Reykjavík Excursions offers a tour that includes some of the above sites as well as a stop at the gorgeous Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.
The classic Golden Circle
If you ask a local which tour you should take if you want a taste of Iceland, they will most likely say the Golden Circle tour. Encompassing the three most commonly visited sights in the South, the Golden Circle gives you a view of Iceland’s bubbling geothermal activity at Geysir and the roaring, powerful waterfall at Gullfoss. The sights are postcard perfect, especially in the soft winter light. Visitors will get a slice of Icelandic history at Þingvellir, often referred to as the site of the world’s earliest democracy and oldest parliament. However, geology buffs will be awed to see the craggy mid-Atlantic fault line that passes through Þingvellir. You can literally plant one foot on Europe and the other on North America.
The Reykjavik Excursions’ tour also includes a visit to the popular Friðheimar greenhouse cultivation centre, where visitors can learn about delicious, pesticide-free tomatoes that are grown with the aid of the geothermal heat. It’s a fascinating and tasty stop, as guests are regularly given samples.
