Tour description

Aurora Basecamp

The Aurora Lounge at Aurora Basecamp is a cozy and low-lit Geodesic dome furnished with tables, benches, and plenty of hot chocolate for warming up on the cold winter night. The Lounge is fully staffed with experts that will tell you everything you need to improve your chances of seeing the Natural Northern Lights on any given night of the season.

The Northern Lights 

Finding the Northern lights can be tricky, and it takes more than just driving around in the dark. The Dark Park experience is a 15-30 minute guided tour designed to help you identify the natural Northern Lights right from the starting phase. Using both still and live images, we guide our guests through the different phases of the lights and show the current activity of the Natural lights in our unique Northern Lights Mirror Tubes.
At a Northern Lights Observatory, the real magic happens outside when the conditions are right. The guided tour ends in the outdoor area that is low-lit and with an open fire, benches, and hot chocolate to stay warm while admiring the endless space or simply enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.

Aurora Basecamp is an ideal starting point for a Northern Light hunt on your own. Being in Iceland does not guarantee that you will see the Northern Lights. It requires patience, knowledge, luck, and the conditions have to be right. Our expert guides provide all the information you need to hunt on your own.

We encourage you to come by Aurora Basecamp as soon as possible after your arrival. You can use the help and knowledge you get from visiting us for your remaining time in our beautiful country.

Please bring warm clothes because Icelandic nights can be freezing.
