Join us for a mysterious trip on a dark night as we hunt for the elusive Northern Lights - also known as the Aurora Borealis.

Description

Join us for a mysterious trip on a dark night, any time from the onset of autumn darkness until the light nights of spring, to (hopefully) witness one of nature's most spectacular displays; the phenomenon which we call the Northern Lights. Far from the glow of the city, we hunt for the elusive Northern Lights - also known as the Aurora Borealis. Together we will search for these magnificent auroras.

On a clear night, we may be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the heaven in dramatic shapes, colors, patterns and sizes. The Northern Lights are visible from September through April but can only be seen on a clear night. Therefore, we reserve the right to cancel this tour if the evening sky is heavily clouded or weather conditions are not favorable.

Before we start this tour we always check the weather forecast around the south western part of Iceland. From experience, we decide where each journey will lead us, for the best possibilities to see the Northern Lights.

Far better than we could have imagined! We saw reds and mauves as well as greens. The sky was alive! Thank you Stefan for being patient with us; if you had hurried us back to the bus, we would not have seen the final spectacle. A great and knowledgeable guide and a stunning experience, thank you.

  • Northern Lights in Brilliant Patterns

    Leave the hustle and bustle of the capital and travel to the best places to see the world-famous Northern Lights as they swirl across the night sky in their remarkable hues.

  • Science of the Northern Lights

    Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) are most often seen around the North Pole, within an oval shaped region drawn around the Northern hemisphere called the Auroral oval. Iceland lies within this most active region meaning that the Northern lights are potentially visible from every place in Iceland.

  • Engaging Knowledgeable Guides

    In reality, viewing conditions for Northern Lights depend on many factors including geography, weather, the time of day and many more. Your experienced guide will decide where each trip should lead for best viewing conditions.
