The Northern Lights – one of nature’s greatest shows on Earth – tops the bucket lists of travelers all over the globe. Join us on a thrilling hunt from Reykjavik to spot this ghostly glow in the night sky. We escape the city’s artificial lights and drive into the deep darkness of the countryside. Your guide will keep a close eye on weather conditions to find the perfect spot to admire the Aurora Borealis. Your encounter with these ephemeral lights will make for a magical night!
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.
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.
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 one year from the date of your tour departure. Unfortunately we cannot provide refunds for unsuccessful tours.
The tour duration is 3-4 hours but tour length can vary depending on the weather.
Wear warm clothes and shoes
Refunds are not issued for unsuccessful tours. We do allow guests to join the tour again on another night. This offer is valid for up to 1 year
As the success of the northern lights tour is heavily dependent on weather conditions, we reserve the right to cancel the northern lights part of the tour until 18:15 on the day of the tour if the aurora forecast is not looking good. When this happens your payment is fully refunded. If the tour goes ahead and no northern lights are seen we offer clients the chance to join another evening’s departure free of charge upon availability.
