The Northern Lights (or aurora) are perhaps one of the most popular things that tourists come to Iceland to visit. This stunning light display occurs high in the upper atmosphere of the earth as a result of solarwinds colliding with the magnetic field of our planet.

Our Northern Lights team works hard throughout the day, checking on weather data in order to best predict a location where the lights should be clearly visible. The locations visited are different from day to day we head in the direction with the most chances of seeing Northern Lights. As this tour is weather dependent and sightings are not guaranteed you are welcome to join another Northern Lights tour free of charge.

Starting off in the city, pick up is included in your price so you will be collected from either your accommodation or the nearest pick up point in Reykjavik. Just let us know where to get you and we will take care of the rest. Once all of our guests are accounted for then our northern lights
hunt can begin.

Reykjavik has high level of light pollution, making it difficult for good viewings of the aurora. To overcome this issue we go out into the darker countryside to hunt for the lights. You will be joined by one of our experienced northern lights guide who will have loads of information to share with you.

With a little bit of luck you will find an amazing spot to view the Aurora borealis. With a maximum group size of 15, you can be assured of a much more intimate experience that is more flexible and spontaneous.

When you reach the location that your guide has selected as being the best point for a sighting then you will have some time to get out of the bus to see the lights. You will have plenty of time to take some photographs, If you are struggling then your guide should be able to help you setup your camera.

There is no food included on this tour but there will be stops where you are able to purchase food.
