All about the trip
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 Aurora Borealis, are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole.
Choosing a guided tour increases your chances of seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland. Our team of experts review and study the weather, locations and aurora forecast on a daily basis to determine if the odds are favourable or not. You will get some basic information from our guides on how to photograph the best pictures of the lights.
Don't forget to take your camera with you, because you can make the most beautiful photos you have ever done, here. Seeing the Northern Lights is an unforgettable experience that you will remember for a long time.
The locations visited during the Northern Lights tour vary from day to day depending on weather conditions. The tours are planned using larger buses, so large groups.Watch on Youtube
