Hunt for the northern lights away from the tourist crowds and light pollution by booking this incredible guided excursion. Those eager to see the aurora borealis with their family or friends should book this private tour now.

The tour starts at the meeting point in Lake Myvatn. Here, you will meet your expert guide and climb aboard the comfortable vehicle that will take you on your adventure. This excursion is a private tour, so it will be just you and your party.

A private tour is an excellent option as you can tailor the tour to your group’s needs. You can also spend plenty of time with your expert English-speaking guide, who will tell you more about the area and the northern lights. On the way, you can ask any questions you have.

The northern lights, or aurora borealis, are a stunning natural light display often visible in Iceland. From late August to mid-April, these lights result from solar particles colliding with Earth’s atmosphere, creating vivid colors that dance across the sky.

Whether you want to experience the northern lights, take some fantastic photographs, or just enjoy the tranquility of a night in the Icelandic countryside, your guide will be able to help you get the most out of your tour.

Your guide will be able to show you the best settings to use on your phone or camera to get some incredible pictures to show your family and friends at home.

Iceland’s dark, clear nights and low light pollution make it an ideal location for viewing the northern lights. However, the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, and as such, there is no guarantee that you will see them.

However, your guide knows where you will get the best chance to see them. They can access weather and aurora forecasts and will follow these to the spots with the best conditions. You will drive away from the light pollution of the village of Reykjahlid and into the Icelandic countryside.

Be sure to wrap up warm. You might spend a lot of time outside waiting for the northern lights to appear, and nights in Iceland can be very cold with freezing winds. Bring warm, waterproof layers and good hiking shoes.

Once you’ve seen the northern lights and enjoyed taking photos of the dancing lights, it’s time to head back. Your driver will drop you off back at the meeting point so you can continue your adventures in Iceland.

Don’t miss this incredible experience of hunting for the northern lights in Northeast Iceland. Check availability now by choosing a date.
