What to expect

Join this tour for a night of wonderful sights! The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are caused by collisions between particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. In Iceland they are visible during the winter months and appear in many different forms and colors, with light green and pink being the most common.

The Northern Lights team studies thoroughly the weather and aurora forecast in order to find the best location each night to spot the lights. While the lights can often be seen from the city, they are never as clear or magnificent when polluted by the city lights. Getting a warm ride to the best possible location for sightings is well worth it. The northern lights are an unforgettable sight to witness and should be enjoyed in the best possible conditions.

This is a small group tour which means that you get more time with your expert guide for assistance with photography and any questions you may have. Keep in mind that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed.
