You’ll start this excursion when you are picked up by your friendly, expert guide in Iceland’s capital. There is a maximum capacity of eight on this tour, so you are guaranteed a personal experience and a short collection time for other customers. When you are all gathered, you’ll set off into the beautiful landscapes around Reykjavik in search of the perfect viewing spot.
You’ll be driven wherever the cloud cover is thinnest, the aurora forecast is strongest, the nature is most beautiful. With their local knowledge and the help of the regularly updated weather app, your guide will have some great ideas of where to go. This means you may see some incredible parts of the country by night, such as Mount Esjan, the Reykjanes Peninsula, or Thingvellir National Park.
Once you pull up and the display begins, you’ll be amazed by the incredible beauty of this arctic phenomenon. With streaks of green, and dancing purples there is no guessing what you may see, as every aurora show is different. To add to your experience, you will be provided with chairs, blankets, hot chocolate, and some unique Icelandic delicacies such as the spirit Brevinin and the donut kleina.
A further bonus of this small-group tour is the fact that your guide will spend much of your viewing time taking photos of the aurora, which you will be provided access to the next day. As such, you don’t have to waste any precious moments fiddling with the camera settings or struggling to capture the elusive magic of the northern lights.
If the forecast is too bleak for the tour to run or you don’t see any lights on your trip, you will be provided with another opportunity to search again for free.
