What you can expect

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.

It’s important to stay warm when you’re out in the dark gazing up at the sky, which is why freshly-baked waffles and hot beverages are available for sale on site. Add some heartwarming comfort to an already amazing experience.*

*Waffles and hot beverages are only available on the 21:00 and 22:00 departures.
