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).

    Although we didn’t see the lights we still had a great time. The guides taught us how to understand the aura guides and overall made it a really great experience. They also honour your ticket for returns within 3 year if you don’t see the lights! I can’t wait to go back

    Our guide was really lovely and we got hot chocolate too! We saw the northern lights but barely which isn’t their fault but our guide said he was surprised that we went out to see them. It seemed like the head office would rather have people go out and barely see them than reschedule and see them better. That said it was super cool to see them and to be able to recognise them. We had a few issues with figuring out where we were supposed to go for our pick up but they responded quickly via email.

    We were extremely lucky, after a couple of hours we had almost given up when the lights put on a fantastic show for us. Nobody can predict nature so there is obviously no guarantee, but we would have been disappointed had we ot seen them as the trip is not cheap, but it would have been no fault of the company. Everything was very efficient and pickups etc were punctual. The hot chocolate & chocolate snack were lovely. If I had to complain the only minor thing was that our guide was very softly spoken and we struggled to hear him on the bus tanoy but we should have asked him to turn up the volume! What we did catch showed he was very knowledgeable and helpful. A massive bonus was being able to download his excellent photos which were sent via a link in an email a couple of days later, as ours were rubbish!
