What to Expect
Head out into the Icelandic winter night in a comfortable bus to search for a dark spot and clear skies for a chance of viewing the Northern Lights. The key thing is to escape the light pollution of the city to increase the chance of seeing the lights. You will witness a wonderful star bright sky while we wait for mother nature to light up the sky in a swirling dance of green light. The length of the tour varies but is usually between 3-5 hours.

It sometimes gets cold in the Icelandic winter night so dress extremely warmly. You'll have hot coco and Icelandic pastries to keep you warm during the wait for the lights. Your guides will explain this natural phenomenon, give you good tips and have stories in abundance about mysterious  creatures, folklore, ghost and elves. Guides decide at 17:00 on the day if conditions for viewing are favorable that night. They will post their decision on the Facebook page and send e-mails to most hotels, guesthouses and booking offices. You can also send them an e-mail to or call us at 551 11 66.

A word of advice is to book the Northern Lights Bus Tour at the beginning of your stay, just in case conditions are not favorable. Note that if you go out and do not see any lights, then you will have another chance to go free of charge. In case no lights are seen you will need to re-book for the following night early on as it happens that the tour sells out. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel the tour if conditions are not favorable.
