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.

During our week in Iceland, there were only 3 clear days so our original trip was cancelled and rescheduled two days later. Since the week wasn't particularly great weather-wise, Gray Line received over 250 orders in the last hour of when we went so it was pretty chaotic. BUT I have to say the tour guides were incredibly nice, organized, and very optimistic about seeing the lights.

Even though it was still not the clearest days, we were able to see 3 northern lights an hour into our tour. It was beyond magical and a beautiful experience. Due to the large size of passengers, everyone was cheering when the lights were dancing and it was such a memorable time.

The tour guide was the BEST guide I've ever had. Incredibly optimistic, friendly, and funny. He checked in on everybody to make sure we were satisfied with the tour. Very personably, highly recommend.

After being cancelled for weather the first night we decided to go the next night and I'm glad we did. While not one of the most powerful display of lights it was definitely worth the trip and something I'll remember for the rest of my life. The bus pick up and drop off went without a hitch and our guide was great and kept us informed of everything while on our over a hour ride to the spotting site. Great service highly recommend.

You wait to see it, you get frustrated thinking the tour was a waste, but then BAM! The northern lights, what a sight. You are in a huuuuge group bus, and meet up with other huuuuge group buses, but if you can stand being in big packs then this is a great budget way to see the lights. Most of the reviews that are one star are because they don't see the lights. That's the risk you take with mother nature.

Forgot to mention the Blue Lagoon afterwards. Well worth a dip. Being in hot water neck down whilst its snowing /sleeting is surreal

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


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

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.
