Experience the magic and excitement of seeing the dazzling northern lights in this four-hour private tour from Reykjavik. This tour is perfect for travelers eager to witness one of Iceland’s most stunning visual marvels.

You can only see the northern lights during the winter months, so you’ll need warm clothes, gloves, and a hat when going out into the cold night. You may also want to bring a camera and a tripod if you’re planning to take pictures.

Once you’re ready and packed, your guide will pick you up in Reykjavik in the evening. Since this is a private tour, you’ll enjoy private transportation without other tourists, and your guide can focus on personalizing the experience for you.

You’ll head out into the Icelandic winter night, away from the bright lights of the capital city. Light pollution and cloud cover can affect visibility, so your experienced guide will use their knowledge of the area to find the best locations to spot the aurora borealis.

Because the lights can be very elusive, you’ll most likely stop at more than one location, which means also passing by plenty of interesting sights along the way. Your guide will be more than happy to answer your questions about the locations you’ll come across while traveling across the landscape.

Once you find the perfect spot, you can settle in and enjoy the show as the aurora borealis comes into view. The tour will also provide you with some hot chocolate to sip while watching the spectacle unfold.

The northern lights commonly dance in waves of bright green, but stronger solar winds can shower you with brilliant reds, purples, and blues. They appear different every time, so your experience will always be unique and unforgettable.

If you want to snap a photo, your guide can also help you set up your camera so you can properly capture the magic of the northern lights. Once finished, you’ll head back to Reykjavik at your drop-off destination.

The aurora borealis can be difficult to locate despite being common in Iceland, so if you couldn’t see them during your tour, you can try again free of charge. If the trip is canceled due to weather conditions and you’re unable to reschedule, you’ll also be refunded in full.

Seeing the northern lights is a one-of-a-kind and memorable experience that you should absolutely not miss while traveling in Iceland. Check availability now by choosing a date.
