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.

Didn't see the lights on our first night out, but they tried very hard went to 3 locations so were able to got the following night and were very fortunate to see them :. Very good tour guides, helped with camera setting, gave background info and some other tidbits. Stayed for a good 2.5 hours at first location and moved to second to try and capitalize once lights began to dim. Apart from the cold and dimming which meant we retired to the coach was excellent, definitely recommend as worth your money as they try very hard to enable you to see the lights if possible. Hotel pick-up was also a bonus.

Driver/guide made every attempt to show us the norther lights from various points and what a show it was! Very relaxed with plenty of time to observe this outstanding natural phenomenon despite the cold weather.

Must see! Your ticket doesn and #39;t run out until they think you have seen the northern lights in full force. Preferable to go on your first night so you have more chance of seeing them during your trip. They are too incredible to miss!!!!

This tour was incredibly well organised. We were unlucky to begin with in that the weather was bad for three nights on the trot, but it wasn't an issue at all rescheduling the tour for another night. I'd advise booking a tour like this towards the beginning of your time in Iceland in case of this.
However, when the clouds disappeared we were led by bus to the best parts of the island to see the lights and provided with a lot of information about what to expect. I'd definitely recommend this tour

Bundle up cause the wait is long. Patience is required and it will pay off. I was lucky enough to see the northern lights on my first trip. Nothing elaborate, not much dancing but still an awesome experience.

Wonderful. Collected from and returned to hotel, all very comfortable. Lively, friendly, informative guide, who seemed just as excited as everyone else to see the Northern lights, which were indeed very memorable

I had the same guide for this as my Golden Circle tour - Darren. He was really knowledgeable and great fun! It's a pretty long night searching for the northern lights, but it's worth it. And Darren makes it that much easier by keeping everyone entertained. You're allowed to wait on the bus if you can't stand outside for too long and they call you when there's activity. We got to the lights and it was pretty spectacular even though there was poor visibility. Glad I booked this trip and would book it again if I ever returned.

You pays your money and takes your choice. Northern lights are not guaranteed but they try their hardest and offer a 2nd attempt free.
