Itinerary
After pickup from your Reykjavik hotel or other designated departure point at the prearranged time, meet your guide and settle into the vehicle for the journey out of the city and into the countryside.

Your exact destination depends upon the conditions and the informed decisions of your aurora hunter-guide, who takes you to where their experience tells them you have the best chance of seeing the lights. Enjoy a warm cup of hot chocolate as you wait for the aurora to make its appearance.

With luck, the lights will soon appear to dance across the sky in colors of green, pink, and violet. Your guide can take souvenir photos for you to capture the moment (additional cost). If, however, the lights do not appear, join the tour again on another night at no additional cost.

Afterward, the tour returns to drop you off at your original departure point.

Overview
The northern lights are famously tricky to see, so increase your chances by booking this tour from Reykjavik led by an experienced aurora hunter. Leave nighttime driving to the experts and travel outside the city, away from light pollution, to a location specially selected for its optimal aurora-viewing qualities. Avoid disappointment with the knowledge that if you don't see the lights, you can join the tour another night for free.
Highlights
  • Aurora hunter-guide takes you to the best location for northern lights viewing
  • Take a free second tour if you don't see the lights
  • Warm up with hot drinks while waiting
  • Hassle-free hotel pickup and drop-off from Reykjavik included

No Lights but good trip anyhow

Although it was very disappointing not to see the lights, it was an informative fun trip anyhow and the free pastries and hot chocolate were very welcome on a very cold night. We gave the fermented shark a try too, not recommended but hey you've...More

Excellent Guide, Great Customer Service

We took the Northern Lights tour in the last week of the season. Our guide, Matt, had just the right mix of tour guide humor and useful information. We were able to barely see some activity with the naked eye, but did capture the lights...More

Very Unprofessional Tour guide

Your Tour guide can really make or break your experience. We had Siggi - by far the worst guide I had during my week long trip in Iceland. I went on 5 different excursions. He didn't provide us with hardly any information during our 2.5...More
