Experience the magic of the northern lights with this incredible aurora borealis tour. This all-inclusive four-hour tour is perfect for those who want to enjoy the natural beauty of the northern lights in a small-group setting, with no large crowds interrupting the views.

The tour begins with a transfer from a meeting point near your hotel or guesthouse in Reykjavik. Your guide will pick you up from a convenient location and take you to the viewing site they've selected for your tour.

This excursion is the ideal activity if you've always dreamed of seeing the northern lights. Participants on this tour benefit from a small-group guarantee, meaning there'll be no more than fifteen guests on the tour. You can easily make the most of your guide's expertise and local knowledge in groups of this size.

Your expert tour guide will choose the best location to maximize your chances of seeing the northern lights. You'll be able to wait for the natural spectacle in a beautiful and serene location, away from the city's light pollution — and other tour groups. You won't have to jostle for the best position to take a photo!

The locations are also chosen based on precise weather conditions. The guides have expert knowledge of the specific requirements needed for seeing the northern lights, so they'll choose the perfect destination to increase your chances of seeing them.

However, if you aren't lucky enough to see the lights on this tour, you'll be able to schedule a second try at no extra cost. The voucher will be valid for two years after the initial attempt so that you can book it for your return trip to Iceland.

Once you arrive at your destination, your guide will tell you more about the aurora borealis while you wait for the natural display to begin. You'll be offered some winter overalls to wear to keep warm — it does get cold out here! You'll also be given a steaming cup of hot chocolate and some traditional Icelandic snacks to enjoy. 

When the northern lights appear in the sky above you, your guide will be on hand to take beautiful photos of you free of charge. They'll also have tripods to help you take your own photographs, and they can help you with your camera settings so you can take some good pictures of your own.

Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to see and photograph the northern lights in an intimate group setting. Check availability now by choosing a date.

Good to know

Witnessing a natural phenomenon like the Northern Lights can be a life-changing experience, but it is NOT one that is always guaranteed. Our expert team uses highly detailed weather, cloud and aurora forecasts with satellite images to make sure we get you into the absolute best conditions available that night. Our northern lights sighting rate is 90% and we maximize our sighting chances by only going out when activity and cloud coverage are favorable for us.

If, despite our best efforts, some unforeseen circumstance renders viewing the lights impossible, we offer free re-trie that will be valid for two years from the date of your tour. However, the availability of this free re-trie will depend on the tours that are currently scheduled.

We reserve the right to cancel the tour as late as 18.30 pm due to weather not being favorable for us. We make a honest decision and e-mail all our guests on the day of the tour at 18.30pm latest to confirm whether the tour is on or off.

How we measure a Northern Lights sighting / non sighting : If you can see the lights with your own naked eyes or only fainted green line for a short time, that is a northern light sighting. Non sighting could be for example if we can only see the lights through our camera, not with our own eyes.

We do not offer refunds, whether partial or full, for tours where a sighting was not possible.
