Join a tour where you both look to the skies for celestial wonders and explore Iceland down below. This tour is tailored to adventurous travellers who seek to experience Iceland's treasure trove of elemental diversity.
Night-time travel in Iceland is a unique experience, both in summertime and wintertime. During the summer months, you will experience the midnight sun, but during winter months, if you are lucky, you may see the northern lights dancing above!
You will be picked up by an expert super jeep driver in the afternoon. The first stop of the tour is the Raufarhólshellir lava tunnel, where you will venture into the earth and witness Iceland's raw volcanic power from the inside.
In the cave, you will see lava walls, fantastic rock formations and stunning colours lit up by expertly placed LED lighting. During winter, the cave ceiling will be decorated by descending icicles, and the ground will be tiled with ice.
After the cave tour, it is time to head to dinner. Restaurant Fjöruborðið in Stokkseyri village is famous for its gourmet langoustine feast.
Langoustine is a small lobster species, primarily caught in the north Atlantic ocean, and the taste is unique. Langoustine is considered a delicacy in Iceland and is mostly eaten for very special occasions.
After dinner, it is time for your midnight travels. During the summer months, your super jeep driver will primarily focus on getting you off the beaten track for some action, taking advantage of the endless daylight hours. Why not squeeze in a little bit more sightseeing, since we have the light for it?
During winter months, the main focus will be to hunt for the northern lights and hopefully, some trail action will be possible as well. The elusive aurora borealis have their own way of doing things, so they will possibly not make off-road action easy for your guide—but if he realises very soon that chances of seeing the northern lights are slim, he will make the most of your journey by finding some super jeep action instead!

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and therefore cannot be guaranteed, but this itinerary is designed to maximize your chances to see them if weather allows.
If you tend to feel claustrophobic, make sure to tell your guide before the cave tour.
