What to expect

The Northern Lights, also known as aurora borealis, are a spectacle of nature's silent firework display. The dancing aurora are truly one of the unique wonders of the world, and Iceland is perfectly situated at the edge of the arctic circle making it perfect for spotting them.

On this tour you will be heading out in a small group on a Northern Lights hunt, which enables you to make the most out of your experience in a more intimate setting. You will be accompanied by an enthusiastic expert guide who will be able to answer all your questions, and hot refreshments will be served to keep you warm as you wait for the lights to appear.

This tour includes a ticket to the Northern Lights Planetarium Show in Perlan, Reykjavik, which you can visit on the day of your tour. You will be able to see an interactive display of the lights and learn the science behind this phenomenon before heading out to see them in person.

The Northern Lights team works hard throughout day, checking on the weather conditions in order to find the best location for the evening's lights hunt. As this tour is weather dependent, sightings are not guaranteed. If you are unfortunate and don't get to see the Northern Lights on your tour, the supplier offers a free reschedule to another evening. The offer for rebooking is valid for three years from the date of your first tour departure.
