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.

It was an awesome and unique experience. Our guide Anna is very able even if she had to assist 2 of us a lot especially during the descent. She also had the common sense to call for help when she needed it. The other guides arrived immediately to give us assistance. I like that they really put our safety above everything else. It was just disappointing that during the time that we were about to visit the second falls, it was very windy and the rain and hail were falling hard. Of course, because of those conditions, we also did not see the Northern Lights.

Great experience, but make sure to bring warm clothes!
