After enjoying one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, you will enjoy a traditional Icelandic soup for dinner with dessert at a local restaurant nearby. Once you have finished your dinner, you will drive to the magical Seljalandsfoss waterfall. This waterfall is illuminated during the night which gives it a very special touch. Then you head out into the night, looking for the magical Northern Lights. After what we hope was a successful Northern Lights hunt, you will return to Reykjavik and be dropped off at the nearest to your accommodation drop off point.

*Please note that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and we cannot guarantee seeing them. As they are only a small part of a full fun day in this tour, there are no refunds or retries offered if we don´t see the lights.
