Overview

Join us for a thrilling night-time adventure to find one of Mother Nature’s greatest showstoppers – the magical phenomenon known as The Northern Lights!

Far from the glow of the city, we will hunt for the magnificent but elusive auroras, best seen on cold, clear nights in winter. If conditions are right, we may be lucky enough to witness the awesome spectacle of the Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the sky in vivid colours and dramatic patterns. The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, are a spectacular natural phenomenon. 

The Northern Lights are seen in winter, usually on clear crisp nights in places far away from the city lights. 

Unfortunately, the Northern Lights are as unpredictable as they are stunning. Our local activity operator has years of experience in tracking the Northern Lights and will carefully research conditions on the day of the tour to give you the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights. However, if you do not see it, you will be offered to join another Northern Lights tour free of charge. Therefore you are recommended to book this for a night early during your stay in Iceland.

At the end of the excursion you will return to Reykjavik in a comfortable coach.
