The Northern Lights are notoriously elusive; there's no knowing where, when and for how long they'll show up!

Hop aboard this fantastic and personal Northern Lights hunting tour, traversing Iceland's beautiful nocturnal landscape on the lookout for the elusive, yet stunning Aurora Borealis. This is a great tour opportunity for those visitors desperate to tick seeing the Northern Lights off their bucket lists, as well as those who wish to enjoy the experience in a small group. 

Thanks to Iceland's geographical position just south of the Arctic Circle, it is possible during the winter months to spot the mysterious phenomenon known as the Northern Lights. For centuries, Icelanders believed these lights to be an omen and a connection to the Gods. Today, scientists agree that they are caused by disruptive solar particles in the atmosphere, though this by no means takes away from their beauty.

There is no exactly telling where and when the Northern Lights will appear—hence, the "hunting" aspect of this tour—but by partaking with a qualified and experienced tour operator, you severely increase your chances of spotting them. 

After all, Northern Lights hunters know the best, darkest spots, and are fairly accurate in predicting what nights the lights will appear. After being picked up from your accommodation in Iceland's capital city, Reykjavík, you'll find yourself deep into the wild countryside, the tranquillity complimented by a blanket of starlight and, eventually, the colourful waves of the aurora.

Northern Lights most commonly appear as green, though as they grown in intensity, they will appear as red, white and purple. As you look at this marvellous display, your experienced driver/guide will make sure to further educate you on the Northern Lights, as well as facets of Icelandic history and culture. This is one of the great benefits of partaking in an organised tour for smaller groups. 

If conditions are unsuitable for Northern Lights hunting, the tour will not depart, and an attempt will be made to reschedule you onto the next available trip, thus saving you from disappointment. 

So what are you waiting for? Don't delay any longer and you too will be able to experience the surreal and awe-inspiring delights of the Northern Lights. Check availability by choosing a date.
