Gaze up at the stunning Northern Lights as you journey outside of the capital city, Reykjavik, to some of Iceland’s darkest, and most beautiful corners. This tour is for anyone and everyone who has heard of this famous cosmic phenomenon and dreams of ticking it off the bucket list!

You’ll be picked up at a selected pickup location to be taken out of Reykjavik on a journey to see the bright dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis. Visitors to Iceland come from far and wide during the winter months in the hope of seeing these sparkling bands of colour decorating the night sky.

Throughout history, ancient people looking up at these strange, glimmering colours have searched for an explanation - messages from beyond? The spirits of the dead? Though we know now that the Northern Lights are caused by collisions between gaseous particles in the earth’s atmosphere, it is hard not to think of the supernatural when you bask in their magical illuminations.

It is best to see the aurora display on a night with good atmospheric activity and clear skies. Your guides will endeavour to find the best location that meets these conditions, giving you the best possible chance to see the Northern Lights during your trip.

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.

There is no set location for this tour due to the unpredictability of the lights; you’ll go where the forecast takes you! As this tour is weather-dependent and sightings are not guaranteed, you are welcome to join the Northern Lights tour on another night, free of charge, if you have no luck on your first try.

Don’t miss your chance to see the Northern Lights, set against the beauty of a cold winter’s night! Check the booking availability by choosing a date.

Please note that children under 8 years old cannot join the tour as it is very late at night and tiring.
