Northern Light Tour
Our tour takes you to see a spectacular phenomenon which can be seen from late August to mid-April. The northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the Magnetic Pole.
Choosing a guided tour increases your chances of seeing the northern lights in Iceland. Our team of experts reviews and studies the weather, locations and aurora forecast on a daily basis to determine if the odds are in our favour.
The tour is weather dependent and sightings are not guaranteed. However, you will experience Icelandic nature during the night, the Milky Way, stars, moon, clouds and total darkness. Please note that indicated return times can vary.
If you don‘t see any northern lights during this tour, you are invited to join the tour again, free of charge.
Passengers can buy waffles and hot drinks on-site, at an extra cost, when available, to enjoy while looking up into the sky.*
*Waffles and hot drinks are only available on the 21:00 and 22:00 departures.
