The northern lights are an elusive phenomenon. Although there’s no guarantee you’ll see them, your expert guide will carefully check the aurora forecast to ensure there’s a high likelihood the lights will appear.
The tour only runs when the cloud cover forecast is excellent and not when it’s average or poor. As clear skies provide the best possibility for successful northern lights viewing, your guide will ensure optimal conditions before you head out.
Rest assured, your guide knows the best spots to look for the aurora borealis away from the large tour buses, although they’ll need to make decisions in line with weather and road conditions. When they find a suitable location, it’s time to settle in for the evening and wait!
Northern lights viewing requires patience, so sit back and enjoy the hot drinks your guide serves as you wait. Perhaps you’ll get lucky and won’t need to wait long. On other nights, relax in the nighttime serenity that feels a world away from the city.
This tour generally lasts between four and seven hours, depending on how long the lights take to appear. Seeing the night sky light up in greens and purples for the first time is an unforgettable experience. As you gaze at the breathtaking scene overhead, you’ll know it was worth the wait.
Seeing the northern lights in Iceland is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If the lights decide to put on a show, your guide will take pictures and allow you to watch the sky’s beautiful colors in peace.
Because the northern lights are a natural phenomenon outside of human control, the tour company does not offer refunds or rebooking if the lights do not appear. However, you will receive a refund if, despite a clear forecast, it was cloudy all night.
After a magical northern lights hunting experience, your guide will drive you back to Reykjavik and drop you off at your hotel.
