Northern Lights Tour

Having picked you up at the meeting point in Reykjavik we'll make our way to the outskirts of the city, where the lack of light pollution means we'll have perfect conditions to be able to observe the Northern Lights.

Your guide will teach you how the aurora borealis is formed, a natural phenomenon almost exclusively found in the polar regions, creating waves of light illuminating the night sky. And you'll also learn about the superstitions which over Iceland's history have come with these lights, as well as the different types of auroras which can be seen.

In a stunning natural environment, surrounded by darkness, be amazed by the splendour of the Northern Lights, with free time to admire the view, take photos, and drink in an unforgettable moment beneath the stars.

Important Information

As this is a natural phenomenon, it's impossible to be certain you will be able to see the lights. If they can't be seen on your tour, we will offer you another opportunity to see them, but unfortunately cannot offer a refund.

Meet Points

When making your reservation you'll see a list including the majority of the hotels in Reykjavik. Next to the name of your hotel, you will find the nearest meet point. As the majority of the streets in the centre are not accessible by bus, you will need to make your way to a nearby location, indicated as a "bus stop" and with a number.

For example, if you choose "20:30 - 1919 Hotel Radisson BLU (Please stand by for pick up at bus stop no 4 - Tryggvagata))" you should be ready at 8:30 pm at bus stop 4 (Tryggvagata). You'll find details about the location of the stop in the reservation confirmation.
