About the tour


This tour will begin from Reykjavik and takes you on a hunt according to the nights aurora forecast. We leave the city lights behind and head out into the wilderness. The elusive Northern Lights are difficult to predict and not guaranteed so be patient and keep your fingers crossed for a phenomenal and memorable night.

It’s truly a magnificent experience and Iceland is one of the more popular and reliable places to see the Aurora. No sighting is ever the same as each time the lights are seen, they look and dance differently. The activity depends on many things from cloud condition and weather to atmosphere and strength of activity. The most common colour to see is green but if you are lucky you might spot a glimpse of purple, pink, red, white or blue. This means that everyones experience is unique and truly magical.

To help you get the most out of your magical lights experience, this tour also includes entrance to the Aurora Reykjavik Exhibition in the old harbour area of downtown Reykjavik. The exhibition is Iceland’s first Northern Lights centre and has educational and recreational displays on offer.

As the Northern Lights can only be seen on a clear winters night, you will need to wrap up warm in wind and waterproof clothing. Remember to bring your camera gear and tripod for that memorable shot.

The Northern Lights are not easily predicted therefore can not be guaranteed. If you do not see the lights on your tour then you are welcome to join us again, for free, subject to availability. Contact us for more details.
