Glacier Walk and Aurora Adventure
On this day tour, we combine two winter highlights, a glacier walk and a search for the spectacular Aurora Borealis for an amazing day out in nature. We start by heading to the Sólheimajökull glacier tongue where we enjoy a safe and easy glacier walk up on to the ice field. As we explore 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 head to the powerful Skógafoss waterfall before we enjoy a traditional Icelandic dinner at a local restaurant. As we head out into the night looking out for those magical Northern Lights, we pay a mandatory stop at the lit up Seljalandsfoss waterfall.
