Northern Lights Chase - Super Jeep Evening Tour with Caving

A winter evening spent on a super-jeep tour with lava caving and lobster dinner

Trip Difficulty 2 out of 5 possible. Rated: Easy.

You will be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík on an enormous Super-jeep with an expert guide at the wheel. The search for the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) is on! We start by exploring the hidden world in and under the lava field located in the Blue Mountains only 25 minutes drive from Reykjavik. Walking down into the lava cave Leiðarendi and discovering the marvels that volcanic activity has created in the past is an adventure that everyone can join and enjoy. On your underworld adventure you will see the magical rock formations left behind in the last volcanic eruption and in winter the cave is likely to be filled with glistening icicles of all shapes and sizes, a sight not soon forgotten.

After being underground we head on to Rauda Husid restaurant in Eyrarbakki village on the south coast where a two course dinner (350 gr. lobster and dessert) is waiting for us. Rauda husid is one of Iceland’s most renowned seafood restaurants especially famous for its lobster dinner, located 60 km from Reykjavik surrounded by the pitch-black Icelandic winter night. From there our hunt continues.

To be able to see the Auroras you will need to be far from city lights and from Eyrarbakki we will not have to travel far until the mountains provide the shadows we need. On cloudless and clear winter evenings, with luck on our side, we may be able to spot this beautiful and elusive natural phenomenon. Vivid and bright, the dancing northern lights in the Arctic skies are a sight to remember.

Please note that this tour is highly dependent on weather conditions and we reserve the right to cancel if the circumstances are not in our favor.
