Take advantage of this opportunity to see the marvellous Northern Lights! This is one of the must-see phenomena in the dark of Iceland’s winter months. In fact, it has become so popular that people have begun to book their tours more than a year in advance!
You’ll be picked up at your accommodation and taken to the countryside outside of Reykjavik for the best possible viewing on a clear night, far from the lights of the city. You’ll stand in the cosy embrace of the darkness and cast your eyes above in order to see these magical lights in the sky. Be sure to dress warmly and bring your camera. Though catching the Northern Lights on film can be tricky, your guides are happy to help you capture the moment.
The Northern Lights are caused by particles from solar winds disturbing the Earth’s magnetosphere. They are centred on the earth’s magnetic poles, and so are generally visible only in countries in the far north or south. Even some areas in Scandinavia, such as Denmark, do not often get to experience the wonderful glow of the Aurora.
This is why everyone, locals and visitors alike, feel that the Northern Lights are very special. When you see them, it is easy to feel connected to all those who have ever looked up at the night sky and gazed in awe at the strange colours shimmering there.
The guides on this tour have much experience in predicting weather conditions and will do their best to provide you with the Northern Lights experience you are hoping for; however, if the Northern Lights decide not to appear, you are more than welcome to try again on another night for free!
Don’t miss your chance to see the famous Northern Lights with your own eyes! Check availability by choosing a date.
Sightings are not guaranteed, and the trip is subject to favorable weather conditions. The weather conditions are checked at 6 PM every day; if cancelled, you will receive an e-mail or you will be notified at the front desk at your hotel. If you don‘t see any Northern Lights on your tour, you can come back later for free!
