Marvel over the Northern Lights on this incredible, relaxing tour. There is no need to worry about language barriers on this bus; each guest receives a kit through which they can be audio guided in 10 different languages.

Seeing the aurora borealis is on the bucket list of many, and Iceland is one of the best places in the world to catch sight of them. To watch the lights dancing in brilliant displays of green, purple, red, blue and white is an unreal experience that you will not want to miss.

You will be picked up from your Reykjavík accommodation from 20:30 or 21:30, depending on your preference, and you will spend approximately three hours hunting for the lights. There is no set plan of where to go, but your guide, an expert on the aurora, knows all the best vantage points and will be tracking the cloud cover online to get you to the best spots.

Although you will have an audio commentary, your guide is still more than happy to answer any additional questions that you have. Furthermore, they know the best ways to photograph the aurora. When the Northern Lights appear, they will help you out with your camera so that you can capture your memory of them for life. 

Tripods are kept on the bus for your use so that you can get the perfect picture. You can also rent out an ‘aurora jacket’ if the winter night is colder than you dressed for, so you can marvel in comfort.

Of course, the appearance of the Northern Lights is very dependent on weather. The sky must be dark enough, there must be significant space between the clouds, and atmospheric conditions, reliant on solar winds, have to be right. Therefore this tour will only run if the lights are expected.

If your trip is cancelled, or it goes ahead, and you are not lucky enough to see them, fear not. You will have as many free extra goes as it takes until you get your moment.

Seeing the Northern Lights is an incredible experience. Doing so with an experienced guide, with commentary in the language most comfortable to you, makes it all the more special.

So do not hesitate a moment longer. Jump aboard to see the incredible, awe-inspiring phenomenon of the Northern Lights. Check availability by choosing a date.

Good to know:

The weather changes quickly in Iceland, so don't be caught unawares. It is always better to bring a sweater or dress in layers which you can remove if you are too warm. (Jeans are not recommended because denim, once wet, will spread moisture and take a long time to dry, leaving the wearer extremely cold!)

First night we didnt had the chance to see the lights. We went on the tour a second time, we had few problems with the booking but the company is really reliable and efficient. And finally we saw the lights ! Guides were nice anc interesting, drivers very pro I recommend this tour !

The tour was great ! They really loocked for the best spot for us to see the northern lights, and we did :) I recommend !

Die Tour war Ok. Man bekam Hilfe beim Einstein der Kamera. Leider waren de Lichter nur schwach zu sehen und normalerweise hätte man eine weitere kostenlose Fahrt angeboten bekommen sollen - andere Veranstalter haben das den Abend getan - aber wir leider nicht Wir waren insgesamt zwei große Busse voll mit Menschen und ich finde das sind einfach zu viele :/

The advertised tripods are very limited in quantity. They got 3 big buses of people to sharing only a few tripods and ours even had missing parts on the top so we weren't able to fix the camera. And all those people crowded into a single space means lots of flash lights which caused disturbances to northern light shooting. In addition, the female guide seemed not very knowledgeable about hunting northern light. She took us to a place with only a faint band. On that night, a geomagnetic storm hit Iceland and crazy northern lights were showing up even in Reykjavik, but we could only see very faint light in our stop. We joined another tour and saw amazing shows. Pickup took a long time as people were picked up in small vans, then left to wait in a parking lot until 3 big buses of people all arrived and switched to the big buses. For those who are interested in stargazing, go elsewhere. I overheard someone asking for a stargazing map and the female guide said the stars are changing and they were preparing new maps. What an excuse. Do NOT join this tour.
