Itinerary & more!

Northern Lights

Your night of northern lights hunting begins with our fast and efficient pick up service. We pickup from designated hotels and tour bus stops throughout central Reykjavík. Just let us know when booking your preferred pickup location. When all passengers have been collected we leave the city light pollution behind and head out into the darkness of the Icelandic countryside.

Unlike other tours, we have no set itinerary or route that we follow. We generally travel no more than 90 minutes drive from Reykjavík and our guides seek out cloudless skies. Earlier in the day, they will have studied the aurora and cloud forecasts for the evening and based on this information they will have a good idea of the best areas to view the lights.

Whilst en route, your knowledgeable guide will share stories and information about the northern lights and Iceland. When we come to the location we have determined is a likely spot, you will get an opportunity to stretch your legs while you wait for the lights to appear. Your guide can also offer advice on the best camera settings to use when trying to capture the aurora. 

Patience is a virtue when it comes to the northern lights and you might have to wait in the cold for a while. This will be made with the free hot chocolate and light refreshments that your guide will distribute.
We hope that the lights will appear at the first location, but we may venture elsewhere if nature is not cooperating.
At the end of the night, we will drop you back in Reykjavík to the same location from which you were collected.

Aurora Reykjavík

As well as chasing the lights through the countryside away from the city lights, when you purchase this tour with us you will also receive a free ticket to the Aurora Reykjavík Museum in downtown Reykjavík. You can visit the museum at any time during the day and we can pick you up for the tour at the museum if you wish.

The Aurora Museum is a great introduction to the science and wonder of the  northern lights. This multimedia exhibition offers interactive displays and an educational centre outlining how people and cultures around the world interact and think about the Northern lights. The Museum also has information on the best camera set-ups to make a lasting memory of your time in Iceland. 

What if we don´t see the northern lights?

Even with cloud and aurora forecasts and knowledgeable guides, the northern lights are sometimes too elusive for our liking. They are a natural phenomenon and therefore not always reliable even when we do our utmost.
If you are unlucky and don´t see the lights during your tour, we´ve got you covered. You can take our tour again another night for free! Your guide will let you know how to rebook. The offer for rebooking is valid for three years from the date of your tour departure. Unfortunately we cannot provide refunds for unsuccessful tours.
