Short Description

Aurora Borealis – even the name sounds magical and mystical. Iceland’s incredible Northern Lights are truly awe-inspiring. View green, red, and white ribbons of colors dance in the star-studded night sky as you hear tales of their mythology and science that give you an even deeper appreciation of this unique phenomenon. Watch the lights in the evenings, and by day explore this island sculpted by icebergs and fjords. Take an exhilarating ATV journey through the Vatnajokull National Park, and watch for skuas and seals. Stroll the volcanic black sand beaches and savor the local lobster. The sights and flavors of southern Iceland are unique, memorable, and truly captivating.

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
