For many, the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights is the reason for visiting Iceland in winter. It offers some of the best conditions for seeing stars and has excellent record for frequent sighting of the Aurora with its pure and crisp air!
What to Expect
You are about to embark on a mission to see the Northern Lights, which are undoubtedly one of the most beautiful celestial displays found in nature. Up there, there are many other cosmic wonders waiting to be discovered. All you need to do is gaze skywards into the Arctic night canopy to explore the magic of countless stars and the moon itself.

The tour not only sets out to find the legendary and mesmerizing Northern Lights, but also uses the opportunity to pinpoint some of the constellations in the sky. You'll learn what they are and what they have represented to our ancestors and to different cultures throughout time. Your host will assist you in finding the most-known constellations and stars, and answer any questions you might have. Do you for example know where Jupiter is?

You'll depart from Reykjavík, where you will step on board our brand new bus fleet, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. The tablets provide you with an “In Bus Audio Guide’’ on the tour, available in 10 languages. On board you will also find a USB charger and free WiFi. You will also find useful tips on how best to capture the Northern Lights on camera.

There are a few factors that determine whether or not seeing the Aurora Borelis is possible, and your guides are experts in reckoning your chances of seeing them. This means they have a high success rate, and do not go out unless they feel the odds are well in your favor.

In order to find the Northern Lights you need two things: patience and warm clothing. If by chance you didn't bring a warm jacket, no worries. Your tour operator thoughtfully brought along ultra warm “Aurora Jackets’’ for rent on their tours. In fact, they are the only operator to do so.
