Join this small group Northern Lights hunt with a professional guide and experience the majesty of the Aurora Borealis in Iceland. This tour focuses on finding the perfect location to witness the magic of the Northern Lights in the dark Arctic sky, as well as keeping groups close and intimate throughout the experience. 

To go into the dark, frozen winter night and observe an unbelievable display of colour, light and texture is like waking up in a fairytale, full of mystery and magic. The tour will begin with you being either picked or meeting your guides at the Aurora Reykjavík Museum. 

First things first, you will be taken through the museum where you will gain an introduction to the physics behind the Northern Lights and how it is best to photograph them. 

After the tour of the museum, you will be driven out to the countryside or up to the mountains, away from electric glow and city sounds.

This is the very best circumstances in which you can witness the Northern Lights for yourself.

Though the Northern Lights are notoriously elusive, partaking in a guided tour such as this is the best possible means of experiencing them whilst in Iceland.
