breathtaking evening tour
About this activity
48 hours in advance
We start the evening at the Blue Sea restaurant. It is located just across the Óseyrar bridge from Eyrarbakki, about 40 minutes away from Reykjavík. From here, you get a spectaculat panoramic views over the seam the mountains and the Óseyrar estuary. Our menu focuses on fresh seafood direct from the fisherman, hmemade cakes and fresh local ingredients.
The standard tour takes approximately 1 hour and this is a evening version which is combined with a Northern light hunt and dinner along the south coast. Navigate through the wonderous lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir, one of the longest and best-known lava tubes in Iceland. Just a short 30 minute drive from Reykjavík, this natural wonder is easily accessible all year round. A footbridge and several paths have been built over the roughest terrain making the Standard Tour accessible for most people. An award winning lighting highlights the changing colors manifesting the powerful volcanic activity that formed the tunnel. The Lava Tunnel is located at one of the best Northern lights sightseeing sport around Reykjavik and is therefore an ideal combination with your evening program outside Reykjavik. Seeing the Northern lights is never a guarantee but our caving adventure is guaranteed fun!
The evening then takes us to a northern lights hunt, which might just be above us when we exit the tunnel! If not, we take a look at the forecast and head in the direction where we find minimum cloud cover!
