Northern Lights Tour

Our Northern Lights tour takes you to see a spectacular phenomenon which can be seen from late August to mid-April. The northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the Magnetic Pole.  

Why take a guided tour to see the northern lights in Iceland?

Choosing a guided tour increases your chances of seeing the northern lights in Iceland. Our team of experts reviews and studies the weather, locations and aurora forecast on a daily basis to determine if the odds are in our favour. 

The tour is weather dependent and sightings are not guaranteed. However, you will experience Icelandic nature during the night, the Milky Way, stars, moon, clouds and total darkness. Please note that indicated return times can vary. 

If you don‘t see any northern lights during this tour, you are invited to join the tour again, free of charge.  

Passengers can buy waffles and hot drinks on-site, at an extra cost, when available, to enjoy while looking up into the sky.* 
*Waffles and hot drinks are only available on the 21:00 departure.

Where do we go to see the northern lights in Iceland?

Our experts decide where the best location is each night so the exact route is not known in advance. One of the most important factors is that we go away from the city lights. Based on the weather and aurora forecast, we decide if it is worth going at all. If yes, our experts decide on the best place to go. 

What to expect on your northern lights tour:

It may be cold outside even though our buses are warm and comfortable. You will have plenty of time to take photos and therefore we recommend that you dress warmly and wear sturdy shoes. We recommend three layers, a cap, gloves, warm socks, and a warm jacket.

Despite all our efforts, we cannot guarantee that you will see the aurora. If we do NOT see northern lights on the tour, passengers can rebook for another evening.

When we go on the tour and we do not see the northern lights, a refund is not possible.

Your rebook-ticket is only valid for you, you can not assign your ticket to someone else.

The tours are planned using larger buses, so large groups. 

You will get some basic information from our guides on how to get the best pictures of the lights.

Our guides are experts in the aurora, where to hunt them down and how to take pictures of the lights, so please do not hesitate to ask them about the northern lights or for assistance with your photography.

Children are welcome on the tour, however, this can be a long and cold night and therefore it may not be suitable for children younger than 6 years old. 

Please note that looking for the aurora is a hunting tour. Civilization is left behind (including conventional WCs) in order to increase our chances of seeing the aurora. Auroras are best seen outdoors at night in Iceland’s winter. Your personal well-being on the tour depends on your own clothing.
