On our popular carbon neutral day tour from Reykjavík, we combine the famous Golden Circle route with stops at local farms for some traditional tastes, a visit to a local spa, and a chance to see the Northern Lights.
Heading out of Reykjavík, we set our course through Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, to the local greenhouse, Friðheimar. There, we get a taste of their delicious and home grown tomato soup and freshly baked bread for lunch. Next, we visit the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall and the great Geysir geothermal area, where the reliable Strokkur geyser spouts hot water up to 30 m. After enjoying these jewels of Icelandic nature, we turn our attention back to the taste buds with a visit to the farm Efstidalur. There, we get a few samples of their local products, such as farm-produced Skyr and delicious ice cream. Next up, it’s time for some relaxation at the geothermal spa Fontana, followed by a 2-course dinner at the local restaurant Lindin. After a nice meal, we head out to explore the mysterious nights of Iceland while we search for the magical Northern Lights.

Good to know
Because the northern lights are a natural phenomenon we can never guarantee seeing them. We have designed our tours so that you will have a fun and fulfilling day regardless of the northern lights. The northern lights hunting takes place at the very end of the tour and if we see lights that will be great but if not, you will still have had a fantastic day. For that reason we do not offer any refunds or retries if we don't see the northern lights.
