From Reykjavik: Northern Lights Guided Tour with Photo Shoot

2. From Reykjavik: Northern Lights Guided Tour with Photo Shoot

Join this 16 people maximum tour, You will be picked up from either your hotel, guesthouse, or bus stop starting 30 minutes before departure time (Please allow a thirty-minute window for everyone to be picked up). The journey will take us outside of the city limits away from any light pollution as the Northern Lights are harder to see from Reykjavík. To which location it is hard to say, it will depend on the cloud coverage and activity in the evening. The drive will be kept as short as possible and you might stop at several locations as the lights can be quite elusive and often it will be a waiting game for this beautiful phenomenon, which might be perfect while your guide sets up his camera for the free photo shoot of your group. On this journey, we are going to offer you blankets, hot chocolate, and snacks.

From Reykjavik: Buggy & Whale Watching Adventure

6. From Reykjavik: Buggy & Whale Watching Adventure

It’s no more than 15 minutes from your Reykjavik accommodation to the buggy base camp. After being picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavik you will be taken to the base camp, given instructions and safety training then geared up. No experience is necessary to ride and your expert guides will make sure you know everything you need for a safe and fun buggy adventure. You will drive off-road on a variety of terrains as you head for Úlfarsfell Mountain. The ride to the top is a chance to experience the true thrills of buggy riding. And when you get there, you’ll be rewarded with a fantastic view across the whole city, the ocean, and the surrounding mountains. Please note that the buggies are 2-seater, so you can either choose to share or choose to drive your own buggy by selecting the 'single rider' option. After your buggy adventure, you will enjoy lunch in Reykjavik Harbor. The old harbor is one of the coziest parts of town. There’s a nice selection of little restaurants and cafes, and you can get a recommendation from your guide. While you refuel, you can look out across the bay and imagine the magnificent creatures that swim below the surface. After lunch head out from the harbor to enjoy some whale watching. The boat is waiting as you head off in search of magnificent Mink whales and the other rich marine life of Faxaflói Bay. A 3-hour guided sea tour provides a fascinating insight into the life of the sea, and great views back to Reykjavik. Whales are a lot harder to predict than buggy vehicles, so sightings are never guaranteed!

What people are saying about Western Region, Iceland

It was a good experience. Have taken photos as souvenir, and there was a photo shoot, not very clear though but it was good. Something to cherish forever. The driver/guide has so much patience. It was a success. I booked on the 18th, was cancelled and was updated everyday that wasn’t possible due to the weather. Never thought that I will see the Northern Lights on my last night in Iceland. Thanks to David-the guide who helped and kept me updated until I met Aurora Borealis. Î recommend this tour…

Es war wirklich toll und auf jeden Fall das Geld wert. Man bekommt viele Infos über die geothermale Aktivität rund um den See. Zwar sieht man nicht den Herstellungsprozess des Teiges dafür, aber das Eingraben und Herausheben. Nach der Arbeit gibt es eine unbegrenzte Verkostung des Brotes mit isländischer Butter und geräuchertem Fisch. Danach wird man eingeladen auch mal etwas anderes in den Hot Pots zu kochen. Wir haben uns Eier besorgt und in 10 Minuten waren sie auch schon hartgekocht.

The guide was great he kept driving to find a secluded place for us to enjoy the lights. Only disappointment was the photos he took of us were awful. He did serve hot cocoa which was nice as our hands were freezing.

I don’t think I have words to describe how wonderful this trip was.

Excellent service, very helpful driver. Would recommend this trip.
