Overview

Seize the opportunity to see one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles on this evening Reykjavik Northern Lights tour. Hop into an air-conditioned coach with an expert guide, and venture deep into Iceland’s darkness-cloaked countryside, far from the electric glow of any towns. Stop at different locations to scan the ink-black skies for the legendary lights, and with luck, catch a dazzling display that you’ll remember forever. Taking a Northern Lights Iceland tour is a must for anyone visiting Reykjavik in winter, so don’t miss out!
  • Evening tour to see the amazing Northern Lights
  • One of the world's most amazing natural phenomena, also known as the Aurora Borealis
  • English-speaking tour guide
  • Pickup and drop-off from Reykjavik area hotels and guesthouses
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.

Wearing several layers, 2 hats and gloves didn't keep out the midnight cold BUT actually getting to see the Northern lights was awesome. They weren't as vibrant as they will be later in the year but to see pale green lights take different shapes...a once in a lifetime opportunity. Our tour leader, Christina, had our bus move to a 2nd sight and it was great.

Didn't get to see Northern light at all. Contrary to Yellow Knight, this location is very close to city and it seems to have no chance of seeing Northern Light.

The tour company tried a couple of different locations to get the best spot to see the lights. We were extremely lucky to be able to see them our first time out. I knocked a star off because they seemed to have oversold tickets on our tour. This worked out in our favor though as we ended up on a small bus instead of the large bus.

I was disappointed in this tour. 50 people is too big of a group to truly enjoy this amazing phenomenon! Best to opt for smaller more intimate tours.

We knew going to Iceland in August, that we may not see the lights, but we tried anyway. We unfortunately did not see them, but our tour guide made sure to stop at two separate locations and tried her best, which was greatly appreciated. Be sure to dress warm no matter the season!

Great tour! Our driver took us to the best spot and was very informative. He wouldn't give up until we found the best view.
