Witness the aurora borealis dancing above the landscapes of Iceland far from any crowd with this Northern Lights tour out of Reykjavík. There is a maximum capacity of four on this trip, guaranteeing a personalised experience you don't want to miss.

Your guide will be an expert on the Icelandic landscapes that you travel through, as well as on the Northern Lights and how to capture them on camera. They are therefore perfectly equipped to provide you with a great, intimate experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.

In terms of what landscapes you reach, it depends entirely on the cloud cover and forecast. Your guide will be following these online to choose the optimal viewing point. Of course, another factor in how they decide where to take you is ensuring that there will be few others around to crowd you.

To aid with this, your vehicle is a four-wheel-drive. This means that if there is an optimal viewing point across a river, or up a winding trail, that a larger bus or two-wheel-drive cannot traverse, you will be able to reach it. 

When the auroras descend, prepare for an awe-inspiring display. Greens, purples, even blues, reds and whites will swirl together against a canopy of stars, leaving any viewer in no doubt as to why historic societies saw the phenomenon as something godly, ethereal and otherworldly. It will also be very clear why watching the Northern Lights is so high on the bucket lists of many.

While there is never a guarantee that you will see the lights, as they are a natural occurrence and nature is notoriously fickle, the tour will only set out if there is a good chance. If it is cancelled or unsuccessful, you will be able to join another tour for free.

You will search for the auroras and admire them over a period of three hours, before returning, hopefully buzzing and mesmerised, to Reykjavík City.

Don’t miss this intimate way in which to see Iceland’s Northern Lights. Check availability by choosing a date.
