The Northern Lights (or aurora borealis) are perhaps one of the most popular things that tourists in Iceland come to witness. People travel here from around the globe to catch a glimpse of this incredible event.
This stunning light display occurs high in the upper atmosphere of the earth as a result of solar winds colliding with the magnetic field of our planet. If you’re lucky enough to see this elusive natural phenomenon dancing through the skies over Iceland, it will be a memory that will last a lifetime.
Our Northern Lights team works hard throughout the day, checking on the latest weather data in order to best predict a location where the lights should be clearly visible. The locations visited are different from day to day, and we head in the direction with the most chances of seeing the Northern Lights.
Your friendly, professional guide will drive you wherever you need to go to find the perfect viewing spot. As you travel away from the bright lights of the city, you’ll be able to relax and observe the mountains and lava fields of Iceland’s unique landscape. Our aurora hunts will also provide you with light refreshments.
Please note that this tour will only operate in the evenings when Northern Lights activity is likely. However, remember that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and viewing them cannot be guaranteed. If by chance there are no Northern Lights to be seen during your tour, we invite you to rebook on a regular BusTravel Iceland Northern Lights tour at no extra charge so you can try again.
We recommend that you wear warm, waterproof clothing with shoes appropriate for walking outside. Prepare yourself for an incredible nighttime adventure you won’t soon forget and join one of our tours! Click on a date to check availability.
