Experience the majesty of Iceland's northern lights in a comfortable, small group setting with this intimate aurora hunting tour. Check availability now if you wish to marvel over this Arctic phenomenon and have professional pictures to commemorate the experience!

You'll be picked up in the evening from a meeting point near your Reykjavik accommodation by a friendly guide, local expert, and aurora photographer. They will escort you from the capital into the dark surroundings, following their knowledge and the signs in the sky to find you the perfect point to watch the northern lights. You will be on the road for as little time as possible to maximize your viewing experience.

Once they've found your spot, you'll wrap up warm in the blankets provided and step out to stare at the stars. If the forecast is weak, it may take a few minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark; if it is strong, you'll see vivid shapes above immediately.

Every aurora borealis show is different, though all are spectacular. Green and purple are the most commonly seen colors, though it is often possible to witness a whole kaleidoscope. They may appear as swirls, stripes, and streaks, undulating gently, falling like rain, or occasionally dancing in magnificent symphony.

As you marvel, your guide will get shots of the northern lights and incorporate you and your traveling group into them; they can send these to you the next day. This means you don't have to spend any time fussing over your camera and can enjoy the entire experience with your own eyes. Due to your small group size, you can be sure that they'll get plenty of shots of you!

After what will hopefully be a once-in-a-lifetime display, you'll head back to your meeting point in Reykjavik.

Marvel over the northern lights in an intimate setting with a local expert and receive photographs of your experience the next day. Check availability by choosing a date.
