What to expect

Golden circle tour to the most popular attractions in Iceland. See Strokkur erupting boiling water skywards at gushing Geysir, feel the power of Gullfoss waterfall and discover the unique geology and history at the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of the oldest existing parliament in the world, Thingvellir.

The Silfra Fissure is one of Iceland’s most desirable snorkeling spots. Located in the heart of Thingvellir National Park, this narrow channel of blue water meandering through a giant lava field does not look like much on the surface. But below, supernatural shades of blue, perfect visibility and incredible rock formations make up a magical sub-aquatic paradise. Enjoy a great snorkeling experience as you drift peacefully in the comfort of a warmly insulated drysuit accompanied by a highly-skilled guide. Silfra, frequently rated as one of the world's top ten dive sites, is located between the tectonic plates of Europe and America. With up to 100 meters of underwater visibility, Silfra is truly a mesmerizing site, not to be missed by any snorkeler, experienced or not.

Lastly, your expert Northern Lights guide will pick you up at your hotel in a custom-built 4x4 super jeep. On the search for the Northern Lights, you will travel through some of Iceland's most spectacular natural sights by night time with a very informative guide. The best part: The super jeep gives you the flexibility to go off of the beaten path, where big tour buses can not reach giving the group a better chance to enjoy the Northern Lights without the discomfort of big crowds.

The guides take photos every time the Northern lights are spotted so you can be sure to get your picture taken with the Aurora.
