A small group northern lights tour offering you a great chance to see this natural phenomena if the conditions are good. Smaller groups and smaller vehicles results in a more intimate and unique experience.
Hop on board and go hunting the spectacular Northern Lights. This 3-hour tour is perfect for those travelling in Iceland in the winter months and want to see this celestial display for themselves.
You’ll be picked up in Reykjavík in the evening in a small and cosy minibus. Where you go depends on the weather, as you need both darkness and a clear sky to witness this rare natural phenomenon. Your expert guide will drive you away from the city lights and into the darkened countryside, to a secluded location in the unspoilt Icelandic nature.
The minibus can reach places that the bigger buses cannot, making your experience both intimate and unique. You’ll travel past mountains and fields and get an incredible nighttime view of the country as your driver looks for signs of the Auroras. When they find the perfect spot, you can exit the vehicle to see the grandeur of the lights with your naked eye.
The Northern Lights are only visible in the northernmost countries and only during the wintertime, so dress warmly as you will be standing in the middle of the Icelandic countryside in the dead of winter to see the dancing lights. This wonderful light effect, known as the Aurora Borealis is caused by particles from solar winds disturbing the Earth’s magnetosphere. The lights appear green but can be pink, red or white, depending on their strength and the atmospheric conditions.
Remember that nature can be very unpredictable and the Northern Lights are famously fickle, so if you don’t see any on your tour, don’t worry. You are welcome to join the tour again another night, free of charge. So don’t miss your opportunity to witness nature at its finest.
