Hop on board and go hunting for the spectacular Northern Lights. This 3-hour tour is perfect for those who are travelling in Iceland in the winter months and want to see this celestial display for themselves.

You’ll be picked up in Reykjavík in the evening in a small and cosy minibus or a car. Where you go depends on the weather, as you need both darkness and a clear sky to witness this rare natural phenomenon.

Your expert guide will drive you away from the city lights and into the darkened countryside, to a secluded location in the unspoilt Icelandic nature. The minibus or the car can reach places that the bigger buses cannot, making your experience both intimate and unique.

You’ll travel past mountains and lava fields and get an incredible nighttime view of the country as your driver looks for signs of the auroras. When they find the perfect spot, you can exit the vehicle to see the grandeur of the lights with your own eyes.

The Northern Lights are only visible in the planet's northernmost countries during wintertime, so dress warmly as you will be standing in the middle of the Icelandic countryside in the dead of winter to see the dancing lights.

This wonderful phenomenon, known as the Aurora Borealis, is caused by particles from solar winds entering the Earth’s magnetosphere. The lights appear green but can be pink, red or white, depending on their strength and the atmospheric conditions.

Remember that nature can be very unpredictable and the Northern Lights are famously fickle, so if you don’t see any on your tour, don’t worry. You are welcome to join the tour again another night, free of charge.

So don’t miss your opportunity to witness nature at its finest. Book now for your chance to see the unique and ever-changing Northern Lights. Check availability by choosing a date.
