Marvel over the spectacular northern lights in Iceland without worrying about other guests’ needs by booking this fantastic private tour. Those seeking to see the most magical phenomenon offered by the land of ice and fire should grab their spot now!

This tour begins when you and your group of up to eight are picked up from a meeting point close to your accommodation in Reykjavik. You’ll be greeted by your friendly guide, who will whisk you out of the city without having to make any other stops. They will be happy to answer any questions you have on the aurora borealis as they begin the hunt for this elusive wonder. 

The skies must be clear and dark to have the best chance of viewing the northern lights, with as little nearby light pollution as possible. Your guide will be able to locate the best spots away from civilization and other travelers, using their knowledge of the local area and the help of modern technology. 

Once the auroras begin to descend from the sky, you’ll get out of the vehicle for a life-changing experience. Usually green, but sometimes purple, red, pink, white, and blue, the northern lights are mesmerizing in their uniqueness and the beauty of their movements. 

You’ll be provided with chairs and hot chocolate, as well as traditional Icelandic donuts called kleina and the local spirit of Brennivin, all of which will add to your comfort as you marvel. Furthermore, you don’t need to sacrifice any of your time fussing over your camera or trying to take a perfect picture; your guide will take professional-level ones that they will give you access to the next day!

If you are unlucky and do not see the auroras on your trip, you’ll be invited to join a group tour again until you can. Tours will only go ahead if there is a fair chance of the northern lights being visible, and you’ll be informed of any rescheduling in good time.

Set out on a private northern lights hunting tour from Reykjavik for an incredible display of the magnificent aurora borealis, with added bonuses such as free photos and Icelandic delicacies. Check availability by choosing a date.
