Glacier Adventures
Though the Icelandic winters can appear harsh and unwelcoming, they offer unforgettable opportunities for outdoor activities. The Glacier Adventure tour takes you up to the top of Mýrdalsjökull glacier, where you are invited to explore it‘s surface by snowmobile for a full hour. Standing on top of a glacier is a truly rewarding experience, where you are surrounded by snow and ice as far as the eye can see. Another icy expedition is the hiking tour Take a Walk on the Ice Side on Eyjafjallajökull glacier. This is considered a relatively easy hike with special crampons up on to an ice field where a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses awaits discovery. For those who wish to combine staple tourist attraction with exciting winter sports the Gullfoss – Geysir & Langjökull Snowmobiling tour is the perfect solution. Started by visits to the unique Gullfoss and Geysir and followed by an adventurous snowmobile trek/ ride on Langjökull glacier, Iceland’s  second largest glacier.

Catch the Northern Lights
The often elusive Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) are for some the most memorable part of their trip. The problem is that they don’t follow any given schedules and  the locations from which they can be seen are not always the same. The Northern Lights Tour takes care of that problem as  Reykjavik Excursions guides will take you to the place where they’re most likely to be seen.

Explore Iceland’s Saga
In the informative Saga Circle, you are taken to some of some of Iceland’s most famous historical settings where you will be able to stand in the footsteps of some of Iceland’s most noted people. The first stop is Borgarnes, the home to one of Iceland’s most famous Vikings and first poets, Egill Skallagrímsson. The visit includes a stop in the Icelandic Settlement Centre, which tells the saga of the settlement of Iceland and has an exciting and lively exhibition on the life and adventures of Egill. The next stop is Reykholt, the home of one of the most important Nordic poets and historians, Snorri Sturluson. The trip is completed with a visit to Hraunfossar waterfalls and the largest hot spring in the Northern Hemisphere, Deildartunguhver. A must do tour for Saga enthusiasts.

Bonfire Tour on New Year’s Eve
Be sure not to miss the Reykjavík Grand Excursion while you’re in  town. Reykjavík has a lot to offer,which all too many miss due to lack of either information or transportation.
