BLUE LAGOON

Season: All Year

The Blue Lagoon is considered one of the New Wonders of the World. Enjoy a relaxation in the geothermal waters

The geothermal water originates 2,000 metres below the surface, where freshwater and seawater combine at extreme temperatures. It is then harnessed via drilling holes at a nearby geothermal power plant, Svartsengi, to create electricity and hot water for nearby communities. On its way to the surface, the water picks up silica and minerals. When the water emerges, its temperature is generally between 37°C and 40°C (98- 104°F). But owing to variables outside of our control – including weather and time of year – the water temperature sometimes fluctuates beyond this range.

WHY IS IT BLUE?

The geothermal water has a unique composition, featuring three active ingredients – Silica, Algae & Minerals. The blue colour comes from the silica and the way it reflects sunlight. During summer there can also be a hint of green in the water. This is the result of the algae, which multiplies quickly when exposed to direct sunlight. However, and this might come as a surprise to you, the water is actually white. If you pour it into a transparent cup, it will always have a milky white colour. The sun simply makes it look blue!

NORTHERN LIGHTS & STARGAZING (3:00 HOURS)

Season: 01 September – 15 April

You are about to embark on a mission to see the Northern Lights, which are undoubtedly one of the most beautiful celestial displays found in nature. But up there, there are many other cosmic wonders waiting to be discovered. All you need to do is gaze skywards into the Arctic night canopy to explore the magic of countless stars and the moon itself.

The tour not only sets out to find the legendary Northern Lights, we also use the opportunity to pinpoint some of the stars & constellations in the sky.

Every guide brings along astronomical binoculars for you to try out and will assist you in finding the most-known constellations and stars, and answer any questions you might have. Do you for example know where Jupiter is?

There are a few factors that determine whether or not seeing the Aurora Borelis is possible, and we´re experts in reckoning our chances of seeing them. This means we have a high success rate, and we do not go out unless we feel the odds are in our favour.

To search for the Auroras you need to stand outside in the Icelandic winter and you need to dress very warmly.

INTO ICE AND LAVA (11:00 HOURS)

Season: All Year

We leave early from Reykjavík for our Langjökull Glacier Ice Cave and Víðgelmir Lava Cave adventure!

The ice tunnel or ice cave is a man made glacier cave high up in the remote highlands of Iceland. Your guide will explain how global warming has begun to affect the glacial environment and take you on a magical journey deep within the glacier. You get to see stunning blue glacier ice and wonderful glacier formations.

The glacier is in constant motion and we can witness that movement of nature itself firsthand. The temperature inside the glacier is usually around zero degrees Celsius or 32 Fahrenheit and until very recently what lay beneath the surface of Langjökull was a mystery.

After our ice cave tour we get back on board the glacier truck and head back down. We eat lunch at Hotel Húsafell and then go on to explore the mightiest lava cave in Iceland, Víðgelmir.

Your cave guide will show and explain the amazing features of the cave, e.g. the wonderful colours, lava stalactites and stalagmites etc. The unique wooden walkway with railings and remotely operated lighting make this an easy tour for almost anyone.

This tour is family friendly and ideal for kids. After our adventures we take a scenic route back to Reykjavík

GOLDEN CIRCLE & SNOWMOBILE (10:00 HOURS)

Season: All Year

We will depart from Reykjavík early to catch the golden morning sun. The tour starts with a visit to Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing. It is also here that the great continental plates of America and Eurasia have dramatically pulled apart and the resulting rift valley is clearly visible on the shores of Iceland´s biggest lake.

The next stop is at Geysir Hot Springs, the home of the original geyser and one of the most photographed tourist attractions in world.

Next we stop at Gullfoss Waterfall. Here the Hvítá glacial river cascades down 32 metres on two levels into a narrow canyon with a thundering roar.

Where the central highlands start, with their uninhabited pristine nature, you will board one of our custom-made Super Trucks that´s capable of driving across rough snowy terrain thanks to its enormous tyres. The drive to the snowmobile base camp at the foot of the Langjökull Glacier is a unique Arctic highland experience and the snowmobile tour that follows is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Ride across the eternally frozen snow and ice fields of one of the biggest glaciers in the world on a guided snowmobile tour, exploring one of the last true wilderness areas in Europe and indeed the world.

WHALE WATCHING REYKJAVIK (2,5-3,5 HOURS (3-5 HOURS IN WINTER))

Season: All Year

Summer season is great for whale watching, as the wildlife in the bay is at its highest peak. This is the time when the minke whales are at their most abundant, along with the white-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises and humpback whales, giving us the chance to enjoy and understand them in their natural environment.

Our sighting success on previous tours is 91.40% however the cetacean abundance is unpredictable and varies with the food availability of our shores. The most common cetacean in the area are the Minke whales, White-beaked Dolphins and Harbour Porpoises and occasionally we see other species including the Humpback whales, Killer whales/Orcas and even Fin whales.
