Take this once in a lifetime opportunity as there are few places outside of Iceland in which you can witness this marvel.

For your chance to view the natural phenomena of the northern lights, this tour will start with picking you up from your chosen spot in Reykjavík. This is where we will begin with our pursuit of the Aurora. With help from our team at our base of operations and experience of our guides, we will be sure to find the best spots to have the highest chance possible of a viewing. Away from the lights of the city, we will be able to see the magnificent spectrum across the night's sky.

Make sure to dress for the weather! In Iceland, it can get quite cold viewing the Aurora, so we recommend warm clothing with many layers as it is better to be overdressed than not enough.

As Iceland is situated so far north close to the magnetic northern pole, we are lucky to be in a position where we can view this amazing spectacle all across this island. Originating from the sun's solar winds result in disturbances in the upper atmosphere of earth, electrons and protons from these winds emit light once ionized in the upper atmosphere. Colours can range from green, purple to even red, in some rare instances.

There are multiple places you could find yourself in depending on the weather conditions. Spots include but not limited too are Thingvellir and Reykjanes peninsula, among many others.

Our guide will help provide more details on this natural occurrence and take a photo if you wish (at no extra cost) to capture a memory of yourself beneath the dancing display of lights.

Total time with this tour takes an average of 4 hours where at the end you will be dropped back to your chosen point in Reykjavik.
