What You Can Expect

Northern Lights Night Tour from Reykjavik

Northern Lights Mystery tour

Leave your Reykjavik hotel by air-conditioned coach, and journey into Iceland’s countryside to search for the Northern Lights.

On route, listen as your guide explains the science behind the extraordinary natural phenomenon, also known as the Aurora Borealis. Learn about the Icelandic myths that have grown up around the spectacle, and how the fluorescent lights are formed by electrically charged particles in the Earth’s atmosphere.

Leave Reykjavik far behind, and head into an area free from any urban light pollution — the darker the skies, the better the chances of getting a good view of the lights.

Hop out of the coach at select locations with your camera in hand and scan the skies, with pointers from your guide. If you’re lucky, be treated to a display and gaze at the shimmering veils of fluorescent lights as they dance and move across the sky.

If you’re keen to get shots, get tips from your guide on how to set up your camera and take good quality photos. Sightings can’t be guaranteed, but if you don’t observe the lights, you will receive a complimentary ticket to take the evening tour on another day.

After between three and five hours of looking for the lights, return to Reykjavik where your tour finishes with a hotel drop-off.

OUTSTANDING! I suggest the 9PM trip as I wanted to leave at midnight but the bus driver kept saying Have Patience!! Freezing my Florida butt off but at 1:10 AM the most incredible light show I have or will have seen!
The colors... green, red, purple made the entire trip worth every penny. THANK YOU Mr. Bus Driver!!

We saw the lights! Our guides were very knowledgeable and knew where to go to see the lights. On our way back to the city the lights were so strong that we stopped in the middle of no where to get out and see them. Strongly recommended.

Very good, the young guide was the best we had on all our excursions, really helpful and enthusiastic, also pretty knowledgeable. This is obviously relying on nature to produce the goods but they did everything in their power to give us a good experience.

We saw the lights! One of my bucket list items and we were so fortunate to experience this breathtaking wonder. So convenient and easy with the tour bus picking you up at your hotel. Grayling is the company running the buses and they were always on time and very organized. There is a small cafe at the site where they took us so you can get inside for warmth and coffee. We were lucky as the lights started around 10:30pm. Words can not express the beauty of the lights. I'd definitely recommend taking this tour!!

We just got back from Iceland and were fortunate enough to take a Northern Lights tour during the last week they were available for the spring season. Unfortunately, on our first attempt, there was nothing to see but the tour company let people re-book a second night at no extra charge. So glad we had the opportunity - what a show the skies put on! Great experience, all around. We were bused to an area that had facilities, so you can get coffee, hot chocolate, snacks, and be able to use a bathroom. The tours will resume again in the fall. Don't miss a chance to get into a dark sky area to see them. Be sure to dress warmly. Spectacular - words can't adequately describe the thrill. Highly recommended!

The first day we didn't have the opportunity to see the lights completely. But we have the chance to take the tour for free once again and in the second time the lights were dancing all over the sky! Absolutely worth it!! Impressive!
