Experience the spectacular Northern Lights on this small-group minibus tour. Stand in awe at the rhythmic dancing lights in the Icelandic skies in some of the best off the beaten track locations. Jump aboard this tour to tick the wonder of the northern skies off your bucket list during your adventure in Iceland.

You’ll finally witness the famous Aurora Borealis for yourself on this special evening. Your guide will take you out into Iceland’s spectacular nature to give you the best possible Northern Lights experience, as well as giving you the opportunity to use the great natural foreground to help frame the perfect shot. Also, as part of a small group, make sure to come prepared with questions for your guide on the famous folklore or the science behind what makes this natural wonder occur.

You’ll be picked up at your accommodation and whisked off to the country away from the noise and bright lights of Reykjavik, allowing you to hunt for the Northern Lights in the silence and darkness of the Icelandic winter.

You’ll be outside in the elements while you hunt for the Aurora, so be sure to bundle up in layers and wear your favourite woollen socks. Your tour guides will also help to keep you extra warm with a supply of hot chocolate and ginger biscuits, making your experience that extra special.

Remember that although they are fascinating, the Lights are also unpredictable. The Aurora forecast in Iceland gives a likelihood every day of where they may be found, but sightings cannot be guaranteed. If you are unlucky not to spot any Northern Lights on your tour, you can book yourself on a tour another night - for free!

The Northern Lights can appear white, blue, green, pink, purple or even red, making for a truly mesmerising experience. These colours are caused by particles from solar winds slamming into the earth’s magnetic field. When these charged particles hit the oxygen-rich atmosphere, they react with the different chemicals and burst into glorious colour!

Don’t miss this brilliant natural wonder. Check availability by choosing a date and book your Northern Lights adventure.
