    Aurora Reykjavik
    Stop: 30 minutes - Admission included
    The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis in the Northern Hemisphere, are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth's atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun's atmosphere. The locations visited are different from day to day as we head in the direction with the most chances of seeing Northern Lights. As this tour is weather dependent and sightings are not guaranteed you are welcome to join another Northern Lights tour free of charge. Booking this Northern Lights tour also gives you a free ticket to visit the Aurora Museum in Reykjavik, Grandagarður 2, 101 Reykjavík. The free entrance is only valid on the day you join the tour, from the time we announce whether the tour is ON (by email and on our website). The entrance fees to the Aurora Reykjavik exhibition are complementary meaning that if you do not wish to go to the museum, there is no partial refund. Join us for a night of adventure and wonder in the Icelandic countryside! Be sure to be dressed up accordingly: warm, wind and waterproof clothing and footwear.

On the last night of our Iceland trip, we made a very good decision to get on the Northern Lights Deluxe bus tour. It was a life changing experience to sit under the awe of the Aurora.

Joining the Bustravel Iceland aurora hunt was a very good decision. The intensity of KP Index 6 had just past but we were certainly not disappointed as we had clear skies and a great driver cum aurora spotter in Omar. He brought us to 2 locations that provided a smashing palette

We were still picking up when the lights appeared, so we immediately stopped and had a fabulous display even with the lights of Reykjavík! Then we sped down to a quiet industrial estate and had an even more spectacular display. Eventually we went off into the darkness, where

Despite unfavorable conditions (cloudy, raining in Reykjavik, and forecasted low Aurora activityz) and many of the tour operators cancelling their Northern Lights tours, Bus Travel went ahead with their tours. The evening started slow and a small white aurora was spotted
