Into the glacier & Northern Lights Tour

New Tour

Join us for the Into the Glacier & Northern Lights Tour, where we combine two amazing activities in one day! Explore the Langjökull glacier’s ice tunnel in the morning and chase the stunning Northern Lights in the evening. You’ll have time to explore Reykjavik in between the tours!

Get picked up from your preferred location in Reykjavik in the morning for the first part of the day at Langjökull, Iceland’s second-largest glacier. Step inside the ice tunnels for an exclusive experience.

As night falls, a minibus will pick you up and take you to the outskirts of the city, away from the lights. Your guide will share insights about the Northern Lights as you gaze at the night sky!
