Captivating 3 Hour Northern Lights Tour Near Myvatn
Experience the thrill of hunting for northern lights in winter near Lake Myvatn. Those adventuring in North Iceland and the ring road are encouraged to embark on this journey to capture one of Iceland’s most treasured visual spectacles.
You’ll meet your guide after sundown in the small village of Reykjahlid. Then, you’ll depart via Super Jeep to begin your three-hour tour along Lake Myvatn to search for the perfect place to view the aurora borealis.
The best way to see them is to have clear skies far away from villages and cities. Artificial lights will hinder visibility, so your expert tour guide will take you to places with a good chance of having visible northern lights.
Your tour guide will also try to avoid places that are already too crowded to give you a more personalized experience during the tour. Their knowledge of excellent local viewing spots will ensure this, and the Super Jeep will allow you to go off the beaten path and see the lights from otherwise inaccessible viewing points.
Along the way, you might also get to see some of Iceland’s other spectacular wonders. Lake Myvatn, Godafoss waterfall, and the geothermal vents at Namaskardh are some of these places. Your tour guide will be happy to answer any questions about the sights or the aurora borealis during your journey.
The northern lights should come into view once you’ve found the perfect spot. All that’s left is to marvel at the rays of light waving majestically across the night sky. Green bands of aurora should instantly catch your eye, but stronger lights can also display vibrant reds, purples, and blues.
Once you’ve taken in the moment's magic, capture it with a photo or video to remember the experience. Your guide can also help you with your photographs. After enjoying the spectacle, you will return to the town with your tour guide.
Don’t miss out on seeing these beautiful sights and the enchanting northern lights in Iceland for yourself on this magical three-hour tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
