Embark on a 3-hour hunting tour of the Northern Lights in Akureyri, far away from the confines of the city. The Northern Lights are a magnificent natural phenomenon that visitors in the region find extremely thrilling. Your professional guide will help find the best locations to catch this display of lights depending on the season or weather.

What to expect?

  • For the Northern Lights hunt we drive out to the countryside or up to the mountains, away from electric glow and city sounds. Where you will be able to enjoy the beautiful night sky at the best possible situation, of course depending on the weather. The so-called Aurora Borealis is a natural phenomenon visible in the Northern Hemisphere. A unique display of light caused by a particle collision in the magnetic field of the polar caps.

  • Our goal is not only to find the right sights for a photograph or two but also to take our time to enjoy this fragile moment that you might not ever see again.

Is this experience for me?

  • Please note that we might travel in a pack with other mini buses from our company if more than one car is booked. The reason for this is that in winter time we often have bad road conditions and there is safety in numbers. This also allows for smoother operation on our hot coco.
  • Most people can participate.

What do I need to bring?

  • Comfortable shoes
  • Spending money
  • Camera
  • Layered clothing
