Northern Lights And Glacier Hiking

Northern Lights And Glacier Hiking

Northern lights iceland

We have combined two of Iceland´s highlights together in one private trip! Glacier hiking during the day and a northern lights tour in the evening. In between the activities, we stop by at the majestic Skógar waterfall for a traditional two-course dinner at the local restaurant. As every private tour, we will be happy to adjust the program to your needs and wishes!

In just one day you will experience:

  • spectacular South coast of Iceland by private minivan
  • private guided hiking on Sólheimajökull outlet glacier
  • 2-course dinner at the base of Skógafoss waterfall
  • visiting of the best area to see the northern lights

Don´t worry about the equipment, the price of the tour includes waterproof mountaineering boots, technical glacier equipment, and extra rain gear. Also a certified and knowledgeable personal guide is a matter of fact on all of our private tours.

See the program of your trip:

  • We pick you up at your accommodation in Reykjavík at 12:00.
  • The road takes us along a spectacular South coast with ash mountains, waterfalls, and volcanos. The journey lasts about 2 hours, making one stop midway where you can buy lunch and use a restroom.
  • When we reach the final destination of Sólheimajökull outlet glacier, we gear up at a parking lot and start the hike to the glacier.
  • We spend the day hiking through the glacier and exploring crevasses and swell holes. Our guide will introduce you properly the glacial wonder world. After about 2 hours on the ice, we make our way back to the parking lot. 
  • From there we have a 15min drive to Skógafoss waterfall where we will have a traditional two-course meal with a magnificent view of the waterfall from the restaurant.
  • After a warming meal, we will spend the rest of the evening hunting down the spectacles of the northern lights as we make our way back to Reykjavík. Expect to be back at your hotel no later than midnight.


"We went on the Northern lights and glacier tour. Was only us and the guide was great. On the glacier, there by ourselves and then went off road hunting Northern lights. Great little company and made the trip feel special!"
