What you can expect

When autumn fades into winter and darkness settles over the Icelandic wilderness earlier and earlier, the captivating aurora borealis comes out to play. Venture out after the sun goes down to see this swirling, luminous spectacle as it dances across the star-studded northern sky.

Get picked up from your hotel or another meeting point and leave the bustle and light pollution of Reykjavik behind. Your guide leads you on an adventure out of the city, using their expertise to find the best spots for viewing the mysterious Northern Lights. As it shimmers into being in the winter sky overhead, marvel at the magical patterns, and dramatic colors of this natural phenomenon.

Listen to your guide describe the science behind this the marvelous natural event. When solar wind collides with charged particles in the high atmosphere, it manifests in radiating green and faint red lights. Watch the colors shift, intensify, and spin for hours on end as you observe, mesmerized by their shifting patterns.
