Tour description

Words cannot justify the sight of this spectacular phenomenon. It’s an experience that you will want to savor and enjoy.

So, with this in mind, this Northern Lights tour has been created accordingly – with an absolute emphasis on the word ‘experience.’ First, we will start our hunt for the Northern Lights with some pre-planning via the Aurora forecast and start our exploration by heading where it’s most likely to find the unique lights.

The minibus takes you comfortably towards the hopeful location of the lights, in a group no bigger than 19 people.

Once (and if) the elusive lights appear, it’s time to pull over, roll an Icelandic wool blanket around you, and take in the spectacular swirling overhead light show. Now is when they break out the hot chocolate and Icelandic pastries known as ‘kleina’ – all included in the tour price. 

Could there ever be a better moment? 

How does it work?

Every day we take a look at the forecast for the evening. Favorable conditions require at least moderate light activity and a clear sky. When conditions are good, we announce the decision on the website to confirm the tour.

Even with the best guides and a detailed forecast, sightings are never guaranteed. If we don’t find any lights on the tour, you can go again another day for free (we call it a re-run).
