Fantastic tour & guide
Our guide ash was awesome. And athor on the glacier was great. We love these guys. They make Iceland.
Drop-off information: We drop you off at your hotel sometime between 20:00 - 23:00 on day three, depending on weather and road conditions.
Ice Cave Info: Our main cave is "Crystal Ice Cave", but if it is inaccessible we will visit another cave. During the summer months (Apr-Oct), we go to the Katla Ice Cave. If it is inaccessible, we do a glacier hike instead.

Waking up on the southern tip of Iceland, before you visit the breathtaking Reynisfjara black sand beach, a relishing breakfast is waiting for you. Then, Iceland’s weird beauty will once again show its magic through the basalt columns, rolling waves, and the Reynisdrangar basalt pillars - in the forms of several jagged, unyielding pyramids - standing offshore. Please pay attention to your guide’s suggestion about visiting since the forceful waves can be very dangerous.

On day three, you are going to try a new glacier experience - glacier hiking on Falljökull glacier. You will be amazed by its magnificence as the glacier is dynamic, astonishing, and incredibly beautiful. The glacier is constantly moving, slowly but surely. In the process, it creates sinkholes, crevasses, moulins, ice ridge and other ice formations that later your glacier guide will talk about in detail. You will also see them or pass them during the hiking journey. It’s quite an unforgettable adventure. Since the glorious icescape is not an everyday scene - especially you get the chance to step in and appreciate it in a close distance - this immersive experience is a fantastic chance to learn about glacier’s amazing facts.

After a nice breakfast at your hotel, you will join our active volcano hike tour where you get to explore an active volcano, learn about this fascinating geological form and traverse Iceland’s otherworldly terrain.
Volcanic eruptions are unpredictable natural events. Whether small or large fissure cracks open, they occur due to lava bursting out as well as other pyroclastic effects. Every eruption brings a rare and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to observe the sheer power behind the lava explosion.
After active volcano hike you will get a chance to hunt amazing Northern Lights.
Our exhilarating aurora hunt takes you deep into Iceland’s rural heartlands, leaving the city lights behind and providing the perfect conditions to witness the heavenly light show. If you’re looking to see something supernatural and cross the Northern Lights off your bucket list, then this is the tour for you!

Egill was extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, kind and funny. He is an excellent tour guide for a beautiful country! He went above and beyond our expectations and we would love to return for another tour someday! We will definitely recommend Adventures.com to our friends here in the US
Still got questions about the tour? Hopefully you will find the answer here.
We always recommend booking a multi-day tour starting at least one day after arriving in Iceland. If you’re flying in from the US or will be landing early (4-6:30 am) you should be able to join the tour, but some risks would follow (i.e if the flight gets delayed) and could, therefore, miss out on the tour.
Most of the hotels we use during our tours are remotely located and therefore ideal to spot the northern lights. If the forecast is in your favor then it is more than likely that you will be able to see the magical show put on by the dancing northern lights during your tour with us. Most of the hotels offer a Northern Lights wake up call upon request if they lights are spotted. The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and therefore we can unfortunately never promise that they will be seen. Their appearance depends upon atmospheric and weather conditions. The best time to see them is between September and March when it’s dark and clear. The sky needs to be as dark as possible, so the best places to see them are well away from city lights (that’s where we are going!).
For more information on the Northern Lights, please have a look at our Northern Lights information.
For multi-day tours, each participant is allowed to bring a small backpack and 1 piece of luggage weighing a maximum of 20 kg (44 lbs).
* The combined dimensions of each bag must not exceed 158 cm (62 in).
* It’s possible to store your luggage with us in Reykjavík while you are on your tour, for a small fee. We highly recommend storing the luggage in Reykjavík to help us reduce our carbon footprint.
* Please note that luggage storage is not refundable.
When booking with Adventures.com, you are guaranteed accommodation at a nice country hotel and/or a guesthouse. The hotels we have partnered up with are all of the same standards and offer nice rooms with made-up beds. The rooms come with private or shared bathrooms, depending on your booking. The standard room is a twin room but it’s possible to request a double room or a triple room, with no extra charge.
If you are traveling solo, you will have to add the single room fee if you wish to have a single room.
All hotels have free Wi-Fi. Towels, a hairdryer, and a kettle are accessible at all of the hotels. Hotel breakfast is included!
If your tour includes accommodation, breakfast is always included during the tour at the hotel/guesthouse restaurant.
Meals and beverages are otherwise not included on your tour. (Unless it’s specifically stated in the description of the tour)
On our multiday tours, we will be making stops at restaurants and convenience stores where you will be able to purchase all necessities.
You should count on spending around 8,000 ISK (80$) on food each day per person. Cash is not necessary, as credit cards are almost always accepted. Having a small amount of cash doesn’t hurt though.
Breakfast is included at all the hotels we stay in during the tour. The breakfast will be a typical breakfast buffet, offering bread, toppings, cereal, yogurt, fruits, coffee, and tea etc.
Your guide will also find a good place for the group to eat lunch. We always try to choose places that have a wide selection of dishes on the menu, so there will be options available for everyone. The dinner is usually at the hotels we stay at for the night.
We do welcome participants of all ages older than the listed minimum age for each tour. We have people of ages ranging from 8-99 years joining our multi-day tours. Our average group usually consists of participants between the age 20-55 years. We do get a lot of solo travellers joining our tours, as well as families and friends.
If you have difficulties participating in any of the activities included in the tour, for example, a glacier activity, you are more than welcome to skip it. You can explore your surroundings in the meantime or wait elsewhere. Our guide should be able to drop you off at a nearby place where there are some services available.
A single supplement is available if you want to have your own room, but you are not required to pay a single supplement. If you are a single traveler and do not wish to book a single room, you’ll be roomed with another traveler of the same gender.
Don’t worry, you can always rent sturdy hiking boots, a waterproof jacket and pants in the booking process. We do not rent these items from the location, they must be ordered in advance.
We drive on average around 300 km (186 miles) per day on our multi-day tours. You will be spending approximately 4-5 hours in the car each day. We do of course stop on multiple locations throughout the tour for sightseeing, activities, bathroom breaks and lunch stops.
