Frequently Asked Questions

About Northern Lights Tours in Iceland

Seeing the Northern Lights is an experience many wish to tick off their bucket list—and this is possible in Iceland. The northern lights may appear whenever the sky is dark and clear, but Northern Lights Tours take you away from the light pollution of cities and towns to provide you with the best shot at catching the celestial display.

1. Is there a guaranteed sighting of Northern Lights on the tours?

No. The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings can never be guaranteed. Tour operators try to predict them the best they can, according to solar winds and weather forecasts. If you don’t see them, you will get a chance to go again with the same tour operator.

2.  What is the best time to see the Northern Lights?

The three key ingredients are cold weather, a pitch black sky and a lack of clouds. That means during the night throughout winter, between sunset and sunrise. A lack of light pollution also improves visibility, so leaving the town or city comes recommended.

3. How long does the tour last?

It depends on the tour you choose, please contact a travel planner for further information.

4. Is the tour going to be on a big bus or a minibus?

We have a great selection of tours, and you can choose between a minibus, a big bus, a super jeep and a boat.

5. Can I see the Northern Lights in the summer?

Not at the height of summer, but it’s possible in late August when autumn is approaching and the nights get dark.

6. What happens if the tour is cancelled?

You can either decide to move it to another date or get a full refund.

7. What happens if I don’t see the Northern Lights on the tour?

You can retry once more. Please contact the tour operator for a re-scheduling. If you went on the tour but did not see the lights, there are no refunds.

8. What colour are the Northern Lights?

The Northern Lights are most commonly green, but if they are particularly strong, they can also be purple, red, pink, white and blue.

9. Why are the Northern Lights so common in Iceland?

Iceland has long dark nights throughout the winter, providing the perfect canvas for the Northern Lights to appear. Also, Iceland is situated well above the 60° north latitude line, which is the lowest point on which the lights are regularly seen.

10. What region in Iceland is best for spotting the Northern Lights?

North Iceland and the Westfjords have less hours of sunlight per day during the wintertime than the rest of the country, so those areas present more opportunities. The Northern Lights are regularly seen in all regions of Iceland, however, so long as the sky is dark and clear.
