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.

Loved to see the northern lights. We were quite lucky as they normally appear only green. We had the chance to see them purple, pink and green. Our guide was very good giving us a lot of facts for the island. After we saw them to the original location they took us, they drove us to another area to continue our northern lights experience. AMAZING

We feel so privileged to have seen the lights, it was defiantly a once in a lifetime experience, though just standing and staring up at the star studded sky was an amazing experience in itself. We are so happy we went on this tour and Darren was a fantastic guide.

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.
