The Northern Lights and the Highlands
EVENING TOUR – PLEASE NOT: THIS TOUR IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE! Unique tour to the top of Langjökull glacier, where it is pitch dark and fresh glacial air. Great location to see the aurora borealis.
We start by driving through Thingvellir National Park to Efsti-dalur. A cosy farmers restaurant where you will have the option to have some dinner. You will then be visiting Langjökull glacier on this tour. It is Iceland´s second largest glacier located in the highlands. Close to Gullfoss waterfall travelers will meet up with a specially modified vehicle (Econoline super jeep or 8×8 Monster Truck) and you will travel up to the top of the glacier in a pitch dark scenario with fresh glacial air. It is one of the most unique place you will ever find. On the tour your guide will tell you local stories, you will learn about the glacier itself and hopefully you will see the northern lights dance for you.

The tour depends highly on weather- and road conditions. This means we reserve the right to cancel the tour if the circumstances are not favorable. In addition the aurora borealis cant be predicted as they are caused by solar winds within the earth´s magnetosphere, and can not be guaranteed under no circumstances.
