Capture the elusive beauty of the northern lights on a private night tour. Perfect for those seeking a personalized, small-group experience beneath Iceland's arctic skies, this tour is eager to witness one of nature's most amazing performances away from the city's lights.

The journey starts with a convenient pick-up from your hotel by your private guide, setting out into the Icelandic wilderness, where the darkness of night allows you to witness the aurora borealis. Your driver has a keen understanding of the landscape and receives regular weather updates, so they can easily lead the way to carefully selected spots for unobstructed views, ensuring the best chance to marvel at the northern lights.

Each night's excursion is a unique adventure, with the viewing spots determined by the most favorable conditions. This tour will only head out if there is a good chance to see the northern lights, and you'll receive another opportunity to find them for free should they not appear.

Waiting for the northern lights, however, is still an enjoyable experience. You could be looking at them from the Reykjanes Peninsula, Thingvellir National Park, West Iceland, or another equally beautiful spot. From the silhouette of mountains etched against the star-lit sky or the sounds of the Atlantic waves if you choose a coastal location, the tour reveals the quieter yet profound beauty of Iceland after dark.

As the night sky's canvas comes alive with vibrant colors, guests are encouraged to capture these moments with their cameras or savor the experience. The guides share insights into the science and folklore surrounding the auroras, enriching the journey with tales and facts.

After a fantastic viewing, your private guide will take you and your group back to Reykjavik.

Accommodating up to six guests, this private tour is inherently family-friendly. Participants of all ages enjoy the spectacle. The experience emphasizes comfort and exclusivity, ensuring each tour provides memorable and seamless adventure.

For those passionate about the natural world and its marvels, this tour is a must-do in Iceland. Guests can quickly check the availability and secure their spot by choosing a date, ensuring they don't miss out on the chance to witness the awe-inspiring northern lights—a highlight of any Icelandic adventure.

Join this tour for a blend of adventure and tranquility, an opportunity to see the world in a new light, quite literally, under the glow of the northern lights. Check availability now by choosing a date.

Guests are picked up from the greater Reykjavik area and driven out of the city to avoid light pollution, heading to the most promising location for northern lights viewing on that particular night. The quest may involve waiting for the lights to appear and potentially relocating to chase clearer skies. The guide stays in communication with the office and locals to determine the best spots for visibility each night, with the goal of finding less crowded locations, although this cannot always be guaranteed.
