See the glowing majesty of the Aurora Borealis first hand with this fantastic Northern Lights hunting tour. This is the perfect tour opportunity for travellers looking to see the Northern Lights untarnished by light pollution, as well as those hoping to tick this incredible natural phenomenon off their bucket list.
During winter months the Northern lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, will often appear in the night sky—though there is no guaranteeing exactly when, where and how strong they will be. Iceland is one of the best places in the world to see this incredible phenomenon, so joining a certified tour such as this greatly ups your chances of catching them.
Each time they appear, they dance differently and in ever-changing colours. Most of the time, they appear as green—depending on the atmospheric conditions, they also may show up as purple, pink, red, white and blue.
Your professional local guide will, throughout the experience, provide you with enlightening entertainment along the way as well as fun and educational facts about the Northern Lights, the south region and everything in between!
The hunt is about three hours long, during which time, you and your group will follow gaps in the clouds, ever hunting for the clearest sky and the finest views. This includes a stop for some light snacks en route.
If the conditions are not favourable, the tour will be postponed until conditions improve.
Join this tour for a fun and exciting Northern Lights Hunt and marvel at the beauty of the sky when the Aurora Borealis descends from the canopy of stars above! Check availability by choosing a date.
