Witness one of nature's most spectacular phenomena on this Northern Lights tour from Reykjavik. Accompanied by a friendly guide, discover the best spot to view this breathtaking wonder and marvel at ribbons of color dancing through the Icelandic night sky.

Set out after dusk with convenient pickup from your hotel in Reykjavik. Your guide takes you to your viewing point, which is tailored daily to the weather and sighting conditions. Look up to the sky as you step out of your vehicle in the dark of the Arctic night, waiting for the beautiful colors to appear against the stars.

Learn how the Northern Lights, also known as the aurora borealis, are caused by the interaction of sun particles and the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. The effect creates shimmering colors that glow and dance overhead. Marvel at the ethereal beauty of the brush stroke-like illuminations, vibrant even in the darkness of the night. Take your time capturing the phenomenon on film, or just admire the sight as you listen to insightful commentary from your guide before you head back to Reykjavik.

Good experience. I did not realize that the white was the Northern Lights and I should be taking pictures then and the colors would come out in pictures. I kept waiting for the colors.

Complete tourist trap. Crammed in a bus brought to area full of busses to wait for 2 hours and wait to maybe see some glimase of northern lights. There was a house and cars around and we barely saw anything. I would recommend splurging for small group tour.
