Experience a four-hour guided excursion, ideal for small groups of up to six people, with the option for larger groups upon request.

Your adventure begins when you are picked up from your hotel or designated bus stop in Reykjavik. Expert guides will lead you on an exciting hunt for the northern lights, knowing all the most beautiful areas and following weather apps to avoid cloud cover.

In pursuit of the aurora borealis, you'll be taken to the best possible locations away from the city's light pollution, where you can enjoy the magical display in all its glory. The aim is to provide you with an incredible view of the green, pink, red, blue, and purple hues against the Arctic night sky.

As this is a private tour, you don't need to worry about other guests obstructing your view and can ask your guide any questions without interruption.

Unfamiliar with the northern lights? These mesmerizing lights are caused by solar storms colliding with the Earth's atmosphere, producing different colors depending on the types of gases and altitudes involved. You'll be awestruck by the science behind the phenomenon and the beauty it creates.

Wondering when to embark on this tour? The northern lights season runs from mid-August to April, with the best viewing opportunities during the darker winter months. During the summer, the perpetual daylight makes it too bright for sightings.

Whether you have a digital camera with adjustable settings or a high-end phone with manual mode, your guides will provide tips and tricks to capture stunning images of the northern lights dancing above you.

To fully enjoy this experience, dress warmly with waterproof layers and solid shoes, as you'll be spending some time outside on the cold Icelandic night. Remember your camera to preserve the memories and a snack to keep you energized.

In this tour, your comfort and satisfaction are prioritized. That's why groups are kept small to ensure a more intimate and personalized encounter with nature's marvels. The guides are experienced and knowledgeable, ready to take you to the best locations for witnessing this magical phenomenon.
