Contemplate the wonder of nature and gaze at the legendary phenomenon of the Northern Lights in Iceland. See the grand spectacle of light in the clear sky, unblemished by pollution or bright lights.
What to Expect
Enjoy a luxury jeep tour to hunt down the Northern Lights, a superb spectacle of light that takes place in the clear night sky. Following a hotel pick-up at around 20:30, travel out of the city center to avoid the light pollution, wrapped in complimentary warm overalls to protect you from the cold winter night.
You will travel in small groups of approximately 6 people to ensure a very personal experience. Although nature can offer no guarantees, the likelihood that you will see an aurora during this tour is very high.
The magical dance of colored lights across the skies is caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere. Iceland provides some of the best opportunities to both see and photograph the performance of lights, thanks to its clear skies, and lack of industry and light pollution.
Trips are available nightly from the middle of October until the end of March, and visitors staying in Iceland for 3 or more nights have a good chance of viewing the Aurora.
If you do not see any lights you can re-book a second aurora tour for free.
