From a vibrant art and music scene to a treasure trove of world-renowned cultural and historical attractions, Reykjavik boasts endless opportunities for fun and adventure in Iceland.

Reykjavik (translates to “Smokey Bay”) is the northernmost national capital in the world, comprising a population so minute that it hardly amounts to being a city.
Despite being home to under 200,000 inhabitants, Reykjavík presents a wealth of sights and activities that will appeal to culture, nature and nightlife enthusiasts alike.

The Lava Tunnel

From £109 per person

Experience something completely new on your trip to Iceland and walk through an actual lava cave to witness forces of nature like you’ve never seen before.
Located only 30 minutes from Reykjavík, the lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir is one of the biggest in Iceland and reaches up to 30 metres wide and 10 metres high.
Near the entrance, the ceiling has caved in creating beautiful columns of light and the different colours you’ll see as you pass through are caused by the different minerals within the rock.

This lava tunnel is the inner workings of a volcanic eruption. Learn new things and step out of your comfort zone. Scenes from the Hollywood movie, Noah, starring Anthony Hopkins were shot in this cave. This is an unmissable tour for anyone visiting Iceland!

The Northern Lights – Small Group Tour

From £93 per person

The northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, are caused by collisions between particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole.
In Iceland they are visible during the winter months, from late August to April, and appear in many different forms and colours although light green and pink are the most common.

Our northern lights team studies thoroughly the weather and aurora forecast in order to find the best location each night to spot the lights.
While the lights can often be seen from the city, they are never as clear or magnificent when polluted by the city lights, thus, getting a warm ride to the best possible site for sightings is well worth it.

This is a classic northern lights tour but in a smaller group. That means you get more time with your expert guide for assistance on photography and facts.
