For many, the possibility of seeing the northern lights is the reason for a visit to Iceland during the winter. The season, with its pure and crisp air, offers some of the best conditions for seeing stars and frequent sightings of the Northern lights.
The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, are a spectacular natural phenomenon, often seen dancing around in fantastic colors across the Icelandic Arctic sky. See if you can spot them for yourself on a 3-hour evening Minibus tour from Reykjavik.
The Northern lights are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun’s solar energy with the upper atmosphere of the earth near the area of the North Pole. This reaction creates this wonderful light effect, known as the Aurora Borealis.
The locations visited differ from day-to-day, but you will head in the direction with the most chance of seeing Mother Nature at work.

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and as part of nature, uncontrollable we cannot guarantee how much you will see on the night you going for the hunt.
The maximum number of passengers is 19, to make the Tour more like friends and family.
