Explore the magical Northern Lights on this minibus tour. Hop on board and get away from the city lights of Reykjavík in search for the amazing Aurora Borealis. This tour is for anyone wanting to experience the full force of Icelandic nature for themselves. 

You will be picked up in the evening on a minibus with the maximum of 14 passengers. You will head out of Reykjavík, where your expert guide will find some dark spot, far away from the bright city. There you can view the magnificent show from the Northern Lights as they light up the sky.

The Aurora Borealis is most often green of colour, but if you are lucky, they will show you their pink and violet colours. To experience the Northern Lights and to see them dancing in the sky to the rhythm of their own music is like no other experience.

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon caused by the collision of charged particles from the sun with the earth’s magnetic field. The best conditions to see the lights is on a night with good atmospheric activity and clear skies. Of course, you need to be near the Arctic Circle as well.

Therefore sighting of them cannot be guaranteed, but we will do our best to try and find the beautiful Aurora Borealis. If there are no sightings, you are welcome to join us on the next available tour.

Iceland can be rather cold during winter, and you will be standing outside to view these spectacular lights, so we recommend dressing accordingly; it is best to wear layers of clothing that will keep you warm and dry. Hats and mittens are great accessories on our tour; you never know when you will need them.

Don't miss this opportunity to explore the famous Northern Lights. Book now to secure your spot on this magical adventure.
