Drive along the south coast to arrive in the village of Hella where we stay for two nights in simple cottages. There is an option to upgrade to studio rooms at the Stracta Hotel in Hella.

In the evening, we hear about the Northern Lights from our tour guide. Naturally, once darkness falls, you are out in the garden waiting for the Northern Lights.

Today we travel along the south coast. We reach the area beneath the Eyjafjallaj枚kull volcano and glacier. We stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall and visit Sk贸gar folk museum of early Modern Iceland with its turf houses. At lunch, we visit the Sk贸garfoss waterfall.

In the afternoon you can book a optional glacier walk on S贸lheimaj枚kull glacier tongue. Booked and paid on spot.

If you book a trip without the glacier hike, the tour continues further south where you walk on the famous Black Lava Beach at Reynisfjara, observe the Cap of Dyrh贸laey and the Reynisdrangar Sea Cliffs before visiting the charming village of V铆k.

In the evening there is another presentation about the Northern Lights. If the night is clear, you might see the Northern Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the heavens in dramatic shapes, colors, patterns and sizes.
