Our evening tour will begin with our fast and efficient pick up service. We will come to pick you up you from either, one of the hotels in the centre of Reykjavik or from one of the many pick up spots dotted across the city. Once we have all of our guests our hunt for the Aurora borealis will begin!

Reykjavik has quite a high amount of light pollution, making it difficult for good viewings. So instead we go out into the Icelandic countryside to hunt for the Northern Lights.

You will be joined by an experienced northern lights guide who will have loads of information to share with you. They will also have spent the hours prior to the tour scanning over various weather maps looking for an ideal spot to head to for your viewing.

With a little bit of luck you will find an amazing spot to view the Aurora borealis. When you reach the location that your guide thinks will have the best chances then will you 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.
