Northern Lights and a 3-course dinner

Join us for a unique 3-course seafood dinner at the small local seafood restaurant Vitinn. Their speciality is the grand crab and shellfish fest. Icelandic lobster (langoustine) or fried cod with shrimp is also an option. Please let us know at the pick up which menu you choose.

You will be picked up at your hotel/guesthouse in the greater Reykjavik area at 19.00 – 19.30. We will drive to Vitinn Seafood Restaurant. After dinner, we will start the hunt for the Northern lights (Aurora Borealis) on the  Reykjanes Peninsula.  All we need is a clear sky, some stars and all the darkness we can find and a bit of patience. This might, for example, take us to the bridge between the two continents,  the edge of the Reykjanes Peninsula,  or somewhere completely different, all depending on the cloud conditions. We will at least do our best to find the Northern lights.

We try to be at the restaurant at 20.00. The dinner takes about 1 and a half hour. That gives us 2 and a half hours to hunt for the Northern Lights on our way back to Reykjavik. But as flexible as this tour can be – it might take us 3 hours or even 4 hours.

Please note that the Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon and there for that is no way to guarantee sightings. BUT we can guarantee you a fun ride and a good meal.

Heimir took us on an excellent adventure, and the crab feast at the Vitinn was an amazing dinner. This is one of the only places in all of Iceland serving crab, along with langoustine, shrimp, mussels, and clams. The seafood is fresh off the nearby dock. The northern lights tour was a fun and informative trip in a very friendly van not one of the big industrial impersonal buses.
