COME SEARCH FOR THE NORTHERN LIGHTS WITH US!
You are about to embark on a mission to see the Northern Lights, which are undoubtedly one of the most beautiful celestial displays found in nature. But up there, there are many other cosmic wonders waiting to be discovered. All you need to do is gaze skywards into the Arctic night canopy to explore the magic of countless stars and the moon itself.
The tour not only sets out to find the legendary Northern Lights, we also use the opportunity to pinpoint some of the stars & constellations in the sky.
On every tour we have an astronomical telescope for you to try out and will assist you in finding the most-known constellations and stars, and answer any questions you might have. Do you for example know where Jupiter is?
We depart from Reykjavík, where you will step on board our brand new bus fleet, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. The tablets provide us with an “In Bus Audio Guide’’ on the tour, which is available in 10 languages. On board you will find a USB charger and free WiFi. We will also offer useful tips on how best to capture the Northern Lights on camera.
There are a few factors that determine whether or not seeing the Aurora Borelis is possible, and we're experts in reckoning our chances of seeing them. This means we have a high success rate, and we do not go out unless we feel the odds are in our favour.
All our northern lights tours are guided by one of our specially trained northern lights guides, they are both knowledgeable and helpful and will even give you tips on how to take photos of the show. We offer free use of camera tripods on all tours (a must to take northern lights photos).
To search for the Auroras you need to stand outside in the Icelandic winter - and you need to dress very warmly to fully enjoy this unique experience. Therefor we recommend putting on warm and comfy layers for the evening. We are also the only operator to offer extremely warm “Aurora Jackets” and ultra warm winter boots for rent on our tours, you can rent them online while booking your tour!
We will start off from Reykjavík Terminal at Skógarhlíð 12 and head outside the city to get as far from light pollution as possible. The location we go to varies from night to night since the weather forecast plays a big influence on choosing the location. We always try to get to the best possible sight with the best chances to view northern lights. The location can be anywhere from 30-60 minutes from Reykjavik.
Once at the location we will stay for approximately 1.5-2hrs hunting the northern lights before returning back to Reykjavik. Depending on the forecast multiple locations may be chosen for searching for aurora each night.
The tour lasts around 3 hours, so we will return to Reykjavik around 2.5 hours after starting the tour.
