Head away from the bright city lights in search for the elusive Aurora Borealis on this fantastic Northern Lights tour. Hop aboard a minibus with only a few other people and witness these green, pink, and white lights blaze the silent night sky. Those looking for an unforgettable evening in the wild Icelandic nature should not let this opportunity pass them by.

The tour starts in the city of Reykjavík where you’ll be picked up in the evening. You’ll be driven into the darkened countryside, far away from the city’s light pollution, where your hunt begins. The expert aurora hunters will look for total darkness, clear skies, and signs of these beautiful lights. 

Once your guides have spotted these beautiful lights, you will exit the minibus and watch the auroras as they sway, in constant motion, in the sky, perpetually changing shapes. Make sure you dress in warm clothes as you’ll be standing in the Icelandic nature in the dead of winter to watch the vibrant colours of the Northern Lights. To warm you up after the tour, you’ll be given homemade hot chocolate and Icelandic doughnuts, a perfect way to end this magical tour.

Booking this Northern Lights tour also gives you a free ticket to visit the Aurora Museum in Reykjavik, Grandagarður 2, 101 Reykjavík. The free entrance is only valid on the day you join the tour, from the time we announce whether the tour is ON (by email and on our website). The entrance fees to the Aurora Reykjavik exhibition are complementary meaning that if you do not wish to go to the museum, there is no partial refund.

Where you go depends on Mother Nature. Your expert guides are will study the weather forecast and data beforehand to see which locations are the most promising. However, the Icelandic weather is famously unpredictable, so if it happens that you do not see any lights on your tour, you can join another Northern Lights tour free of charge.
