What will I experience on this tour?

Your Northern Lights Tour will begin with an easy pickup from Reykjavík.

Then we will all head out of the city on the bus for an exciting night of Northern Lights hunting!

As the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) are a natural phenomenon, your chances of seeing them depend highly on weather conditions.

When is the best time to see Northern Lights?

Clear nights from late August to April give the best potential to see the Aurora.

Our expert team are keeping a constant watch on the weather forecast.

Your guide will take you to the best place to see the Aurora Borealis on the particular night of your tour (we might go to several spots).

With a bit of luck, you will experience the spectacular show of these magical lights.

Swirling across the sky in dramatic colors, they cast a magical glow across the dark night of the Icelandic countryside.

Your guide will be on hand to enrich your evening in the language you selected.

Giving you plenty of detail about the science and folklore surrounding the Aurora. Even offering some photography tips to help you get some great pictures of the Northern Lights.

And if you don’t see the lights on your Northern Lights trip this time, don’t worry – you can rebook free of charge! See the “important Info” section below for more detail.

What happens if I don’t see the lights on my first tour?

The Northern Lights can be elusive, so it’s not guaranteed you’ll see them every time!

If you don’t see the Northern Lights on your tour you can re-book for another Northern lights tour free of charge.

We highly recommend that you book your Northern Lights tour for one of your first nights in Iceland.

This way, if you don’t see any lights on your first try, you will have a chance to re-book for another night before you leave.

What others are saying

This tour group did a phenomenal job in terms of communication to the tourists booking this tour. I highly recommend booking your first night if seeing the northern lights is something you feel you cannot leave Iceland until you see. I booked my first night and unfortunately did not see anything even though different locations were tried and the weather was tracked. Mother nature has its own agenda. However, the tour group was very easy to connect with and discuss booking a different night of your choosing free of charge. Second time around was my last night in Iceland and I got to experience what I came here for and it did not disappoint.

Very informative guide and really fun evening tracking the lights. They are a natural phenomenon so it’s always a lottery. We did see some amazing sights as well as just the night sky was stunning.

Our tour guide was called Swan- a friendly and enthusiastic guy, he was very knowledgeable as he explained and spoke about the northern lights while we were en route out of the city to a dark location on the side of a mountain. Coach was comfortable and there was a stop at a service station for toilets / conveniences. The coach stopped 3 times in dark places where we got out looking for the lights. We were lucky as it was a clear night and there were more stars than I have ever seen in my life. We caught a glimpse of the lights. As a natural phenomenon there are no guarantees but the tour guide could not be faulted for his efforts and enthusiasm. I would recommend to wrap up in layers and keep an open mind. Wonderful experience with or without the appearance of the lights, however, great to see a glimpse, best of all for those who get a full show!
