Full description
Meet your private guide and driver at your accommodation in Reykjavik where your tour begins. Review the forecast with your guide and drive to the location where the Northern Lights could be seen. The location visited during this tour vary day-to-day depending on the weather. Popular viewing spots are Thingvellir National Park, Hvalfjordur and the Reykjanes Peninsula. Northern Lights are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun and upper atmosphere near the North Pole. This results in pink, green, yellow and violet hues you can see dancing in the sky. After chasing the Northern Lights and spending about 60 minutes at your location, the tour finishes with drop-off back at your accommodation. Because this tour is weather dependent, sightings are not guaranteed.
