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.

We were incredibly lucky to see a good spectacle of the lights, so this will always be a good review! The guide was great, the coach comfortable, and the drive fine. There were probably another 10 coaches at the site we were at, but you couldn't tell there were a large amount of people there. Just a shame about the small amount of people who ignored the guides and used torches, flashes etc which blinded you when your eyes were used to the dark. If want a small group then this is not for you, but for us it was fine.

Make sure you book your tour for early in your visit as due to weather it might be postponed to another date northern lights are weather-dependent.

We had an amazing guide - witty, funny and caring. She told us lovely stories, helped understand Icelandic people and culture and was great at answering questions and providing insight. We saw the Northern Lights and it is an experience hard to describe in words - it is just so stunning one has to see it for yourself. Definitely recommend!

Christina was our guide on the coach and she was superb with all her stories and tales.
We did get to see the lights so that's one off the bucket list.
Take plenty of photos if you have some good kit, they will great when you put them on your computer, the lens captures the things you don't see.

We were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights twice, in both spots we stopped. Our driver turned out to be a great photographer too and his photos were amazing! Highly recommended.

Can't think of anything negative about this trip, probably helped by the fact that we were lucky enough to get over an hours worth of the northern lights!

This was our favorite northern lights tour. We saw beautiful lights, and on the way home, they started up again much stronger, so they pulled over again for us to get out and enjoy the show. This fulfilled a twenty year dream to see the lights. We really felt that the guide wanted us to get the most our of the trip.
