Witness the amazing phenomenon that is the Northern Lights on this minibus tour. Travel into the darkened countryside to see this celestial display for yourself. People come to Iceland from all over the world to see these elusive lights, and the best way to spot them is with a Northern Lights tour like this. 

Your professional guide will spend the day watching the forecast to see if the conditions are right. If the sky is clear of clouds, you will be picked up in the evening and driven away from the bright city lights to the darkened countryside to see the spectacular Auroras.

The Northern lights are essentially particles from a solar eruption, and when they hit the atmosphere, they create these lights in the sky that are usually green but sometimes white and purple. When the activity is high, they move around like dancers in the evening sky.

People once believed these lights hold great powers, and that if you are born at night, while the Aurora Borealis are dancing in the sky, you will become both handsome and lucky.

These spectacular lights are elusive, so if you don't find any on this tour, you will not only be entertained by the guide's stories of Icelandic folklore and world-class jokes, but you are also welcome to try again another night.

However, if the Auroras decide to show up, you will see the sky lit up by this spectacular sight. You'll keep warm with an authentic Icelandic wool blanket and hot chocolate, and you can enjoy some Icelandic pastries in between taking pictures of the beautiful Aurora Borealis.

So don't hesitate! Come along on a minibus tour to the Icelandic nature to see the beautiful Northern Lights dance in the evening sky. Check availability by choosing a date.
