Northern Lights Small-Group Tour from Reykjavik
From US$86.09
Catching sight of the northern lights while in a populous area can be more difficult due to the bright city lights. Head out into the Icelandic countryside's darkness during this guided tour with round-trip transport from Reykjavik. Your guide finds the best spot for viewing the aurora borealis, giving you a better chance to view the light show than if setting out alone.
What to Expect
Your evening begins with pickup at your Reykjavik hotel by small car or minibus. From there you’ll head out deep into the darkened countryside where your tour guide will scout the sky for the first signs of the aurora borealis.

When your guide finds the best place for viewing the northern lights, you'll have plenty of opportunity to get out of the car to view and snap some photos of the dancing lights. Make sure to dress warmly and bring along a few extra layers since you will be standing outside to view the lights.

Although your guide takes you to a location with the best chance of viewing the northern lights, seeing them is not guaranteed. If you don’t get to see the lights on your tour, don’t worry; you’re welcome to join another night’s tour free of charge.

Your northern lights tour ends with a drop-off back in Reykjavik.

Comfortable ride. Attentive Driver

We were very fortunate that our driver did not have to work very hard to find the Northern Lights, even though I do not doubt he would have searched for them for hours if necessary.

Good trip & we saw the lights

We booked this trip for our first night in Reykjavík and picked the small group as we had been warned about the large coach tours. The mini bus used for the tour was ok, but filled up quickly and wasn’t the most comfortable. The guide...More
