The tour

Small group Northern lights tour that operates from Reykjavík city.

Words simply cannot justify the sight of this spectacular phenomenon. It’s an experience that we know you will want to savor and enjoy. With this in mind, this Northern Lights tour has been created accordingly – with an absolute emphasis on the word ‘experience’. First off, you will start your hunt for the Northern Lights with a bit of pre-planning and checking out he Aurora forecast and start our exploration by heading in the direction that has the most potential. Sometimes the lights want to be chased and that is all part of the fun. If we do find them, it is a unique moment. If not, you get to try again.

By traveling in a minibus you get the qualities of a smaller group (max 15 people) as we try to avoid the crowds for the best spot available.

Please note

Here is how it works: Every day we take a look at the forecast for the evening. First, we need good solar activity. Second, we need to have a clear sky. And last, we need to get out of the city to rid of the light pollution.

If conditions are favorable, we send you an email to notify you that the tour is going ahead. If we don‘t find any lights, you have the option of going again for free (subject to availability). Please keep in mind that sightings are never guaranteed.

Only in the case the tour NEVER operates due to unfavorable weather conditions, you will be entitled to get a full refund.
