Earth and Sky – Caving and Northern Lights

Northern Lights in a minibus. This is a combo tour. Cave Leidarendi is a beautiful cave not far from Reykjavik. We explore the cave and then we search for the northern lights. We check the cloud and aurora forecast, and then we drive to a location where there is a good chance of seeing the northern lights.

After leaving Reykjavik we drive in a minibus for about 25 minutes and then we will reach the lava tube cave, Leidarendi, a well known lava cave in Iceland. The cave is located in Tvibollahraun lava field, close to the Blue Mountains. The cave is easily accessible to all who can walk on uneven surface.

The walk in the cave is an exciting journey and there are many things to see so we spend 1.5 – 2 hours exploring the cave and its colourful magnificence. The length of the tube is estimated to be 900 metres. You will see natural stalactites and different rock formations making this an experience of majestic and almost indescribable beauty.

Respect for nature and safety are our main concerns. There are no handrails, lights or any tools installed in or around the caves. We rely completely on the equipment we carry and it is important that people respect our guidelines. After the caving tour we drive you back to your hotel. You have around two hours to have dinner, before we pick you up for the northern lights tour.

Northern Lights

We pick you up again, at your hotel, between 21:00 – 21:30, for the northern lights tour. Look for an Extreme Iceland minibus. We check the weather forecast closely and set of into the night for the search of Northern Lights.

We will hope for the best and be prepared if luck smiles on us. We will drive to beautiful locations not far from Reykjavik, we will get out of the minibus and check for the northern lights. We will go to locations where there is no light-pollution, so that we can get a good view of the Auroras.

The solar activity puts on a magnificent show of Aurora Borealis as a result of frequent and massive solar explosions. Seeing them swirling and swaying overhead is simply an unforgettable experience; the lights are usually greenish yellow but white, red and pink lights may also appear. To watch the northern lights surrounded by the magical Icelandic nature is like walking into a storybook full of mystical beings and locations- you will never find such places or sights anywhere else.
