Experience a unique adventure in Iceland surrounded by breathtaking nature views with this four-hour northern lights tour with an expert aurora hunter and photographer. The tour is perfect for those who want to explore the nature of Iceland at night and see the breathtaking aurora borealis. 

Your small-group tour begins at an arranged meeting spot in Reykjavik, where you will meet your guide. Your guide will ensure you are prepared and knows what to expect during your northern lights hunting tour through a pre-briefing three hours before departure. 

Before meeting with your guide, make sure that you also prepare for the tour. You’ll be exploring Iceland at night, so it can be colder than usual. To avoid feeling cold, wear warm layered clothes and warm shoes. 

What makes the tour unique is the presence of your expert tour guide, a native of Iceland. Your guide knows the perfect places to see the northern lights and has extensive experience photographing nature and people. 

Aside from delivering stunning northern lights photographs and directing you to the best spots to see the aurora borealis, your guide will also ensure you get the best of this experience. While waiting for the northern lights to show up, you can cozy up with warm chocolate and rum. They’ll also provide you with local stories and answer any questions about Iceland’s natural phenomena. 

The northern lights’ visibility during your tour depends on the weather, so the likelihood of seeing them is not 100%. However, your northern lights expert guide will ensure you get an honest forecast about it three hours before departure. The guide’s forecast allows you to choose between continuing or canceling your northern lights hunting for another day. 

Upon the appearance of the northern lights, you’ll have a lot of chances to get the perfect shot, allowing you to check this off of your bucket-list activity. After four hours of hunting and enjoying the night under the Icelandic skies, you’ll get your free photos and return to Reykjavik. 

This small group tour, suitable for up to six people, requires joiners to be at least 12 years old. Though this is a sightseeing tour with an easy trek, the tour is not accessible for wheelchair users, and pets are not allowed to enter. 

Reserve your spot in this once-in-a-lifetime northern lights tour with an expert aurora hunter and photographer in Iceland. Check availability now by choosing a date.
