Full description

Travel from Reykjavik on a quest for one of nature’s most spectacular natural phenomena. Marvel at this breathtaking display as the northern lights dance across the night sky and light up the heavens. Hunt for the Aurora Borealis in the darkness of Iceland's countryside on a 4-hour tour that operates from September to April. If the lights are not visible during the tour, you can easily reschedule for free.

Hop in a premium minibus and enjoy a more intimate experience with better chances to hunt down the auroras. Get plenty of free time and prepare for spontaneous encounters.

As an added perk, booking this northern lights tour also gives you a free ticket to visit the Aurora Museum in Reykjavik. The free entrance is only valid on the day you join the tour from the time it is announced whether the tour is on (by email and on the website).

    • The entrance fees to the Aurora Reykjavik exhibition are complimentary meaning that if you do not wish to go to the museum, there is no partial refund

    Sadly we didn’t see the lights on 18th November but that wasn’t for the lack of trying. We rescheduled for the 20th as we had a booking for a meal to celebrate my daughter’s birthday on 19th. Sadly the lights decided to give one of best shows ever while we were inside oblivious. The 21st got cancelled due to poor weather and we were going home the next day. The moral of this story is just to stay alert and try to get an alert. Booking and transfer of the date to try again was easy and I would recommend the trip!

    It's not a lie to say you need patience when hunting for the Northern Lights! Third time lucky we finally managed to spot them! Our first trip was unsuccessful, the second was cancelled due to bad weather but we finally managed to get some spectacular views on our third trip. Each time we needed to reschedule the process was really easy and we were kept well informed via both text and email when plans changed. The customer service team were also able to advise whether I would be able to fit the Northern Lights tour in alongside another full day tour we had planned. Pick up was always very punctual and straight forward, and the guides shared their knowledge and enthusiasm for the Northern Lights on each trip. Plus the hot chocolate was a great bonus! A must-do experience when you are in Iceland!
