Northern Lights Iceland Mystery

Winter On cold evenings About 3-5 hours Your hotel / guesthouse in Reykjavik Easy

People have told stories of the Aurora since the beginning of time. It’s documented that the Vikings thought the Northern Lights were caused by the shining weaponry of immortal warriors.

The Northern Lights (also known as Aurora Borealis) are Iceland’s main attraction during the cold winter months. The Auroras are a magnificent phenomenon, and an absolute must-see for every traveler.

We’ll whisk you away far from the bright city lights that pollute the sky, where our expert Northern Lights guides will find the perfect viewing location (which varies day-to-day depending on weather conditions). The commute can be anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes outside of the city to guarantee the very best visibility.

The tour is guided by specially trained Northern Lights guides, who are both knowledgeable and always happy to help, just ask! Our guides have decades of experience in analyzing the Northern Lights forecast. Therefore, the tour will not depart unless there is a high chance of auroras, resulting in a high success ratio. But not to worry, if our hunt is unsuccessful our guides will provided instructions so you can re-book the tour, on the house.
