Northern Lights Bus Tour from Reykjavík

Jump aboard this affordable bus tour for your chance to see one of nature’s greatest marvels, the Northern Lights. This tour is for those travelling outside of the summer months, who seek to tick ‘seeing the aurora borealis’ off of their bucket list. You will be picked up from your Reykjavík accommodation in the evening and whisked away from the bright lights of the city. Departure times differ depending on the time of year. There is no itinerary or a specific set of locations, instead, your guide and driver will use their experience and knowledge of the weather conditions to take you the most promising viewing spots. The tour will last approximately three hours, and you will be taken to the areas with the clearest skies for the best view, so you’ll be able to enjoy the wonder and beauty of the sky when the auroras start to descend from the canopy of stars above. Each time they emerge, they dance differently, and in ever-changing colours. Most of the time, they will appear green but can be purple, pink, red, white, or blue depending on their strength and the atmospheric conditions. Your experience with them will be entirely unique, and all the more special for it. Solar winds and cloud cover dictate whether or not the northern lights will show and so your best chance of catching them will be on a clear night. Iceland is one of the most accessible and reliable places in the world to see this incredible phenomenon. The tour is weather dependent, so if the auroras are not expected to be visible, the tour will not run. If you join the tour and the lights do not appear, fear not, you are welcome to join the tour again another night, free of charge.  Don’t miss out on your opportunity to see this incredible natural wonder and give yourself a magical winter night in Iceland.

Reserve your place on this cosy minibus tour and go hunting for the Northern Lights in the company of new friends! This tour is for anyone who has ever admired pictures of the Northern Lights and wished they could run away to Iceland. You’ll finally see them yourself on this special evening. With a small group, you can have your own communion with nature, and ask your guide all the questions you have. You’ll be picked up at your accommodation and whisked off to the country away from the noise and bright lights of Reykjavik, allowing you to hunt for the Northern Lights in the silence and darkness of the Icelandic winter. You’ll be outside in the elements while you hunt for the Aurora, so be sure to bundle up and wear your favourite woollen socks. Your tour guides will help to keep you warm with a supply of hot chocolate and ginger biscuits. Remember that although they are fascinating, the Lights are also unpredictable: the Aurora Forecast in Iceland gives a likelihood every day of where they may be found, but sightings cannot be guaranteed. If you are unlucky and don’t spot any Northern Lights on your tour, you can book yourself another night - for free! The Northern Lights can be white, blue, green, pink or even red. These colours are caused by particles from solar winds slamming into the earth’s magnetic field. When these charged particles hit the oxygen-rich atmosphere, they react with the different chemicals and burst into glorious colour! Don’t miss this brilliant display of natural wonder.

Gorgeous Northern Lights Bus Tour

Take advantage of this opportunity to see the marvellous Northern Lights! This is one of the must-see phenomena in the dark of Iceland’s winter months. In fact, it has become so popular that people have begun to book their tours more than a year in advance! You’ll be picked up at your accommodation and taken to the countryside outside of Reykjavik for the best possible viewing on a clear night, far from the lights of the city. You’ll stand in the cosy embrace of the darkness and cast your eyes above in order to see these magical lights in the sky. Be sure to dress warmly and bring your camera. Though catching the Northern Lights on film can be tricky, your guides are happy to help you capture the moment. The Northern Lights are caused by particles from solar winds disturbing the Earth’s magnetosphere. They are centred on the earth’s magnetic poles, and so are generally visible only in countries in the far north or south. Even some areas in Scandinavia, such as Denmark, do not often get to experience the wonderful glow of the Aurora. This is why everyone, locals and visitors alike, feel that the Northern Lights are very special. When you see them, it is easy to feel connected to all those who have ever looked up at the night sky and gazed in awe at the strange colours shimmering there. The guides on this tour have much experience in predicting weather conditions and will do their best to provide you with the Northern Lights experience you are hoping for; however, if the Northern Lights decide not to appear, you are more than welcome to try again on another night for free! Don’t miss your chance to see the famous Northern Lights with your own eyes! Check availability by choosing a date.

Golden Circle and Northern Lights | Live Tour with Audio Guide in 10 Languages

Come along for two essential Icelandic experiences: sightseeing around the Golden Circle, and hunting for the Northern Lights. This tour should appeal to all those who seek to immerse themselves in Icelandic nature and witness one of the world’s greatest wonders. Your tour starts at Reykjavík Terminal where you will meet up with your guide or you will be picked up (available at extra cost) from outside your accommodation to board a bus that is part of a brand new fleet and has Wi-Fi, a tablet for each guest, and an audio guide which provides commentary in 10 different languages. Of course, there will also be an expert guide on board to help you with any queries. The first stop is Þingvellir National Park. This is the most important historical site in Iceland, where early settlers founded their first parliament in 930 AD. This parliament continues to this day in Reykjavík, making it the longest-running, ongoing institution of its kind. Þingvellir is located in the valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Iceland is the only place this rift comes above sea level, and nowhere is it more apparent than here. The next stop will be the Geysir Geothermal Area in the Haukadalur Valley. This area is renowned for its hot-springs, most notably its two geysers. Geysir itself no longer erupts regularly, but its neighbour Strokkur blasts water up to 20-metres (65 feet) high every five to ten minutes. Once you have seen it erupt several times, you will move onto the third and final stop of Golden Circle, Gullfoss. This is a magnificent waterfall, falling in two tiers from a height of 32 metres (105 feet) into an ancient canyon. You can witness the majesty of these falls at a viewing platform right beside where the water is dropping. With the three sights of the Golden Circle complete, you will return to Reykjavík where you'll have a few hours to unwind before you are picked up again for the Northern Lights hunt.  Once you set off on your Northern Lights hunt, there are no set destinations; your guide will follow the weather online and direct your driver to the spots with the least cloud cover. They are experts at finding the Northern Lights and know all the darkest, most secluded viewing locations. Watching the auroras descend from the stars is a magical experience. If you want to take some photographs, your guide can help you with the settings of your camera. There will also be tripods on board which you can use to get the best results. After a three-hour hunt, you will return to Reykjavík. If you are not lucky enough to catch the lights, you will get another try for free. So do not hesitate. Jump aboard for a tour that combines two incredible, essential Icelandic experiences. Check availability by choosing a date.

Those who want to mix their winter-time in Iceland with both sightseeing and adventure, while cutting on costs, should not miss this opportunity. This combo consists of two tours, which will bring you to many famous sites and all three of Iceland’s National Parks. On the 3-day south coast tour, you will get to explore the Golden Circle, South Coast and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon; you also get to embark on a glacier hike and an ice caving adventure. On the day tour to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, you will see majestic waterfalls, stretches of dark lava fields and a mighty glacier.  During the 3-day tour to the south coast, you will be staying in country hotels along the trip for 2 nights, which are included in the price.

Northern Lights Boat Tour from Reykjavik

Come sail away on a fabulous boat tour of Reykjavik’s Old Harbour to hunt the Northern Lights over the ocean. This tour is perfect for anyone who has been captivated by pictures of the Northern Lights and longs to see them with his own eyes. Take a lovely nighttime stroll through the downtown area as you make your way to the harbour, only 5 minutes from the city centre (pick-up at your accommodation is available for an additional fee). You’ll be leaving the hustle and bustle of the bars and clubs behind, going far from the light and warmth of the city shops and heading out to the open sea. Be sure to get cosy in your favourite woolly sweater, for the wind on the water can be brisk. As you stand in the darkness with only your guide and a small group, you can imagine that you are Vikings returning from a voyage to Norway, witnessing this colourful sight for the very first time. Though the Vikings had many explanations for the Northern Lights, they mostly thought of them in a practical way. In one example, they reasoned that the lights were caused by the sun moving around the other side of the earth. Other cultures attached supernatural or religious meaning to the dancing lights. Throughout the medieval period, they were considered bad omens or evidence of restless spirits. What will you see? Don’t forget to bring your camera and try to capture the Northern Lights on film. In fact, it may be easier to get a good picture than to see with the naked eye. Auroras can be relatively dim, and the redder light is often at the limit of what human retinas can see. Cameras, on the other hand, are often more sensitive, and with a long exposure setting and a clear dark sky you can pick up some spectacular shots. Grab this opportunity to see the Northern Lights as the sea wind ruffles your hair. Check booking availability now, by choosing a date.

The Northern Lights by Bus

Witness one of the great wonders of the world. When the weather is right, and cosmic conditions are in your favour, join this tour and head out in search of the unusual phenomena known as the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights. Avoiding the light pollution of the city, you will be driven towards the area where the chances of seeing the Northern Lights are the highest. On the way, your guides will tell you all there is to know about this arctic marvel as well as pointing out any interesting landmarks on the way. The night might be long, so you will be offered some light refreshments of kleina (a traditional Icelandic twisted doughnut) and hot cocoa to keep you warm. Be prepared for the fantastical show of lights which can appear in a variety of colours and infinite different arrangements. Please remember to dress according to season and weather. Wear plenty of warm layers and don't forget the hat and gloves so that you can comfortably enjoy the celestial show before you. The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and, sadly, sightings can not be guaranteed. At 17:00, after checking forecast and conditions, your guides decide whether or not they operate the tour and inform you of their decision immediately. Should the northern lights not be seen on your tour, you will be offered to join another tour another evening, free of charge. If you book a northern lights bus tour and conditions prevent your guides from running the tour for the duration of your stay in Iceland, you will, of course, receive a full refund. The group size is always limited per bus to provide you with better service and a personal experience. Don't miss out on this opportunity of seeing the Northern Lights in the perfect environment of comfort and care. Check availability by choosing a date.

Northern Lights Hunt from Akureyri

Hunt for the Northern Lights in their prime location, North Iceland, on this winter tour from Akureyri. If you're staying in this part of the country and wish to have a guided experience enjoying the mystic appeal of the Aurora, this is the tour for you. You’ll be picked up at your accommodation in Akureyri and taken outside town limits to the beautiful countryside in the fullness of night. This is to provide you with the best possible conditions to view the Northern Lights, which is darkness and clear skies. Akureyri is in the far north of Iceland, making the winters there darker and longer than in the capital region of South Iceland. Akureyri is also a much smaller city, so you won't need to drive as far out into the night to escape the town's light pollution. For centuries, viewers of these magical lights have tried to explain what they were, before realised as particles from solar winds reacting with gases in the atmosphere. Some cultures believed that they were messages from the dearly departed or the godly fires of the creator up in the sky. Winters in the North are often heavy with snow and ice, so you might not want to drive out yourself in search of the Aurora Borealis. You can let your experienced local driver and guide do that for you, guaranteeing you a safe and pleasant journey.  It may be best, as well, to bring your camera for a keepsake of this unforgettable experience, and a thermos of something warm to ward off the chill as you search the night skies, for veils of glimmering light flashing between the stars. Don't miss your chance to be a part of an unbelievable display of colour, light and texture on a cold, dark night, like something out of a fairytale, and join this popular winter adventure of hunting for the Aurora.

Northern Lights Hunt in a Minibus

Witness the amazing phenomenon that is the Northern Lights on this minibus tour. Travel into the darkened countryside to see this celestial display for yourself. People come to Iceland from all over the world to see these elusive lights, and the best way to spot them is with a Northern Lights tour like this.  Your professional guide will spend the day watching the forecast to see if the conditions are right. If the sky is clear of clouds, you will be picked up in the evening and driven away from the bright city lights to the darkened countryside to see the spectacular Auroras. The Northern lights are essentially particles from a solar eruption, and when they hit the atmosphere, they create these lights in the sky that are usually green but sometimes white and purple. When the activity is high, they move around like dancers in the evening sky. People once believed these lights hold great powers, and that if you are born at night, while the Aurora Borealis are dancing in the sky, you will become both handsome and lucky. These spectacular lights are elusive, so if you don't find any on this tour, you will not only be entertained by the guide's stories of Icelandic folklore and world-class jokes, but you are also welcome to try again another night. However, if the Auroras decide to show up, you will see the sky lit up by this spectacular sight. You'll keep warm with an authentic Icelandic wool blanket and hot chocolate, and you can enjoy some Icelandic pastries in between taking pictures of the beautiful Aurora Borealis. So don't hesitate! Come along on a minibus tour to the Icelandic nature to see the beautiful Northern Lights dance in the evening sky. Check availability by choosing a date.

Whales & Northern Lights | Double Boat Tour

Hop aboard for two of Iceland’s most popular winter activities, of both whale watching and Northern Lights hunting from a boat. This adventure should not be missed by any lovers of wildlife who want a chance to see the ethereal Aurora from the open seas.  Your adventure starts from Reykjavík’s Old Harbour in the city centre, where your whale watching vessel awaits. On the following 3-4 hour cruise around Faxaflói bay, your expert guide will provide you with in-depth information about the surrounding landscapes and the magnificent marine animals of the bay. The most common species of whale in our waters are Minke Whales, White-beaked Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises and Humpback Whales. You can also expect to witness rich birdlife such as Arctic terns, Guillemots, Cormorants and many more. You return to the harbour area in the afternoon, in good time to have dinner and prepare for the electrifying Northern Lights hunt. All guests get a discount at a nearby harbour restaurant which they can make use of, or they can use their free voucher to explore the Whale Exhibition Centre.  The evening voyage departs begins when night has fallen. Meet the crew in the Visitor Centre and prepare for an unforgettable experience. Once you've boarded the boat, you can stay inside the heated indoor cabin or get warmed up in comfortable overalls and head upstairs to the main deck to get ample views of the vast starry sky. Leaving behind the bright city lights, you start the search. Your excellent guide will tell you all about the Auroras and how they form, and if you have any questions or need help setting up your camera gear, please don’t hesitate to contact the crew. You can expect to be back in the city a couple of hours later, or around midnight. Sighting success is quite high and to optimise your chances your guides carefully go over the weather-, cloud- and sea conditions beforehand. However, in the unlikely event that you don’t see any wildlife or Auroras on the tours, you will receive a free ticket to try again on a different night. Don't hesitate in jumping aboard and exploring the wonders off the coast of Reykjavík, from the gentle giants swimming below to the majestic Northern Lights dancing above.

Northern Lights Deluxe | Minibus Tour from Reykjavik

Step aboard a minibus and join a magical night of Northern Lights hunting. This tour should not be missed by winter travellers seeking one of the world's most spectacular natural phenomena. On this tour, you will be picked up from Reykjavík, and driven far into the wilderness. As you travel, your expert guide will point out features in the surrounding landscape, and tell you all about the Northern Lights. Not only is your guide knowledgeable about the auroras themselves, they know exactly how to find them. They are aware of hidden corners in nature, where there is no light pollution, open skies, and no other crowds, and will be following the cloud cover and aurora forecast for your best shot at finding them. Due to the fact you are in a minibus, your group size will be small, allowing you to ask any questions you may have about Iceland or the lights. When you pull up to start admiring the auroras, you will be left in awe. Descending in vivid greens - and occasionally purples, pinks, blues and reds - they will swirl and dance like some otherworldly force. You will be left knowing why some ancient societies believed these were messages from the Gods or the spirits of the dead. Of course, not all Northern Lights hunts are successful; if it is too cloudy, your tour will not depart, and even if it does, they still may not appear. However, if either of these events occurs, you will be able to join another tour for free, and if that tour is not successful, you will have an open ticket for the next three years. Since this might be a long night, your guide will bring along some traditional Icelandic pastry and hot beverages to keep you warm, as well as a complimentary blanket. Don't miss your once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the spectacular aurora borealis. Check availability by choosing a date.

An Evening of Northern Lights at Laugarvatn Fontana

Join this fabulous evening of Northern Lights from the comfort of the geothermal baths at Laugarvatn Fontana, a favourite retreat in Iceland since 1929. This is the perfect tour choice for those travellers looking to see the Northern Lights, but without having to stand around waiting in the cold Icelandic wilderness.  The Northern lights are as unique and inspiring as Iceland itself: at first, they appear softly, perhaps as undulating streaks of teal, mint green or pure white, or maybe great, leaping bands of violet and magenta splashed across the starry night sky.  Whichever form they take, the lights are truly an unforgettable experience. Other cultures believe they are dancing spirits, reflections of a phantom fire, omens of war, or even the playful bounding of a great Arctic fox, whose fur strikes the sizzling sparks you see as he touches the mountains. But of course, there is more! Take in this shocking, stirring display from the comfort of the geothermal baths at Laugarvatn Fontana. Laugarvatn Fontana is designed to offer the luxury and convenience of its various steam rooms, mineral baths and Fininsh-style sauna, while never distracting you from the natural beauty of its surrounding environment. Soothe your spirit and nourish your body! Try goodies from the buffet which celebrates uniquely Icelandic cuisine: a whole meal, or just a taste. Choices can include the soup of the day, trout fished from the nearby lake Laugarvatn, rye bread baked in the hot sands of the lava plains (a traditional method) or homemade cream cakes, along with a wide array of cold and hot beverages to please your palette. Once you've had your fill of sensory delights at the baths, you'll also be taken on a short tour of the countryside to make sure you didn't miss a single bright light amidst the raw, yet captivating, landscape. Bask in the wondrous glow of Northern Lights while you relax in steamy luxury at Laugarvatn Fontana. Check availability by choosing a date.

Join this two-day tour of the stunning South Coast of Iceland to discover glaciers, lava fields, volcanoes, rivers and cascading waterfalls, as well as the unique and naturally formed Blue Ice Cave. This excursion is for anyone looking to experience the vast wonders of Iceland in only two days.  Your adventure begins with a pickup from Reykjavík City on the morning of your first day, after which you will pay a visit to two of the country’s most famous and remarkable waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Then, you will be treated to nearby waterfalls of equal beauty; Gljúfrabúi, Kvernufoss and Írafoss, which are hidden gems of the area that many people miss out on experiencing. The black pebble beach Reynisfjara and its stunning sea stacks Reynisdrangar will complete this exciting first day of the tour. After a good night’s rest, your adventure continues, as you visit the otherworldly nature reserve Skaftafell and take a walk along the Diamond Beach. The beach consists of black velvet sands dotted with glistening icebergs that are making their way from the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon to the Atlantic Ocean.  The glacier lagoon counts as one of Iceland’s primary attractions, where you can gaze at the huge chunks of ice floating in the azure waters—you might even spot the resident seals that are often curious enough to greet visitors.  Then it’s time for the highlight of the tour; to visit a natural ice cave within Vatnajökull glacier, Iceland’s largest ice cap. To visit one of these caves is a rarity and a privilege, as they are hunted down by experts each fall and fill with meltwater each spring. Since this is the winter season, there is a good chance the Northern Lights might grace you with their presence each night of your adventure.  This tour is in high demand and of limited availability.

Private Northern Lights Hunt | Personal experience

Get ready for the most extraordinary sightings Iceland has to offer.  Join us on a journey you will remember for the rest of your life, - join us on the hunt of a lifetime. The skies in the northern hemisphere tend to produce those beautiful green, purple, white, red and yellow lights known as the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. This happens with some help from the sun of course, where the solar winds play a big part. The Aurora Borealis, sometimes known as the polar lights, travel at a speed of up to 8 million km/h (1 million mph). The most known colour of these beautiful lights is green, but they do offer a wider spread of colours, such as yellow, pink, red, purple and white. Quite a spectacular sight. The best time to see these green dancing lights in the sky is in the evening, so we depart quite late. The tour will begin at the pickup location of your choice in the capital area where we embark on the Northern Lights Hunt. If you are outside the capital, don't worry! We offer pick up there as well for a small fee. You can add that option to your tour upon booking. You can also choose from several pickup times. If you are travelling with children, we do recommend the earlier timeslots, as the later departures can be hard on the youngest participants. We will follow the weather conditions surrounding the departure time and pick the route to be driven according to the best possibility of Northern Lights sightings. We will chase clear sky and stick to areas where we have confirmed levels of activity, in correlation with the Icelandic Met Office. Since the Northern Lights hunt is a winter activity, we suggest you dress according to weather. It can get quite cold in Iceland, especially at night. Nice, warm winter clothes and good shoes are a must since the best sightings are outside of the car. We will stop along the route, so you get to enjoy the lights and the beautiful nature of Iceland.   We offer all our client’s high standard and professionalism, and we strive to make your journey in Iceland a dream come true.

Northern Lights by Boat with Backup Activities for Bad Weather

Don’t be left with nothing to do on a winter night in Iceland, by booking this Northern Lights cruise that guarantees a back-up tour if the weather is unfavourable. This is the perfect way to make sure you won’t be disappointed by a planned night in Reykjavík. All going to plan, you will take the tour detailed below, but in case of bad weather, you will instead go for a guided tour to the Whale of Iceland Exhibition by the harbour. This fantastic museum has life-sized models of all 23 whale and dolphin species seen around Iceland. You’ll get a complimentary drink, and, of course, a ticket to try northern lights hunting another night. If the sky is clear and the forecast good, however, you’ll board a ship at the same harbour, and set off onto Faxaflói Bay. As the sky darkens, you’ll keep your eyes peeled for any sign of the incredible, ethereal aurora borealis. When they start to descend, you’ll be in awe of their surreal beauty. Greens, purples, and a range of other colours swirl and dance amongst a canopy of stars like something from another world. The sea is one of the best places to watch nature’s greatest show, as the only light pollution will be from the distant city lights of Reykjavík. While you wait for the lights (or after them), you are welcome to stay warm indoors on the boat; there is a large, heated cabin with comfortable seats, complete with restrooms and a cafe. After two hours, hopefully, complete with a fantastic show, you’ll be returned to Reykjavík’s harbour. If you were not lucky enough to see the auroras, you will get a ticket to try again. Witness the Northern Lights, or visit a fantastic museum and try again the next night, with this flexible tour. Check availability by choosing a date.

Vestrahorn, as well as on the Snæfellsnes peninsula to the west. You will see the geysers, cross mountain valleys and visit other famous locations, such as the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and the Goðafoss waterfall, which are all a part of this great Self Drive. Every step of the way, you can add a range of outdoor adventures such as horse riding, snowmobiling or hiking on a glacier.  Whatever you decide to do, this self-drive journey allows you to take in Iceland at your own pace and the luxury of driving yourself presents plenty of opportunities to chase the Northern Lights at night. All of your accommodation is also arranged, making the travel free of all fuss and stress; all you have to do is decide how you want to spend your time in Iceland.
