Volcano Hike & Northern Lights Combo Tour
Your day starts in the late morning by joining our tour to eruption site at Meradalir. This involves a 1.5-2 hour hike each way over uneven terrain and would be considered of moderate difficulty to the average, reasonably fit person.
Enjoy the spectacle as thousands of cubic meters of piping hot magma erupts from the volcanoes core.
After you time at the volcano, you will be dropped back to the city where you will have time for dinner and to freshen up before your evening northern lights hunting tour. Our guides, having consulted the aurora forecast of the Icelandic Met Office, will take you to the area most likely to be free of cloud cover and hope to see the aurora´s shimmering light show. We will take you to 2 or 3 locations hoping for the best display.
This Northern Lights tour is usually around 4 hours in duration.
