What to expect

Have you ever wanted to spot one of those amazing dancing lights in the sky, the famous Aurora Borealis? If you're traveling to Iceland, be sure to go on a Northern Light hunt! Join this tour for a mysterious trip on a dark winter night. The season for Northern Lights in Iceland extends from the tail end of the summer in September through winter and well into April. The best time to see Northern Lights is in the middle of winter when the weather is the coldest and when it is the darkest. Crisp cold evenings with skies clear enough to see stars is a prime indicator for one of nature’s most spectacular displays - the Northern Lights.

Far from the glow of the city, we hunt for the elusive Aurora Borealis in a comfortable van or coach. Together with your expert guide, you will search for these magnificent auroras. On a clear night, you may be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the sky in dramatic shapes, colors, patterns and sizes. Viewing conditions depend on many factors including geography, weather, the time of day and many more. Before the tour starts, your guide always checks the weather forecast around the southwestern part of Iceland. From experience, he will decide where each journey will lead you for the best possibilities to see the Northern Lights. Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity!
