Northern Lights Deluxe | Minibus Tour from Reykjavik

Northern Lights Deluxe | Minibus Tour from Reykjavik
Northern Lights are often complimented by a blanket of starlight.
Northern Lights will dance in the night sky, floating around as though it were alive.
There are a number of locations in Iceland known for their lack of light pollution, and thus, their likelihood for Northern Lights.
The Northern Lights illuminate the night sky as though it were straight from science-fiction.
Capturing the Northern Lights is the dream of many photographers around the world.
Make sure to ask your guide inquisitive questions about the light's origins.

Step aboard a minibus and join a magical night of Northern Lights hunting. This tour should not be missed by winter travellers seeking one of the world's most spectacular natural phenomena.

On this tour, you will be picked up from Reykjavík, and driven far into the wilderness. As you travel, your expert guide will point out features in the surrounding landscape, and tell you all about the Northern Lights.

Not only is your guide knowledgeable about the auroras themselves, they know exactly how to find them. They are aware of hidden corners in nature, where there is no light pollution, open skies, and no other crowds, and will be following the cloud cover and aurora forecast for your best shot at finding them.

Due to the fact you are in a minibus, your group size will be small, allowing you to ask any questions you may have about Iceland or the lights.

When you pull up to start admiring the auroras, you will be left in awe. Descending in vivid greens - and occasionally purples, pinks, blues and reds - they will swirl and dance like some otherworldly force. You will be left knowing why some ancient societies believed these were messages from the Gods or the spirits of the dead.

Of course, not all Northern Lights hunts are successful; if it is too cloudy, your tour will not depart, and even if it does, they still may not appear. However, if either of these events occurs, you will be able to join another tour for free, and if that tour is not successful, you will have an open ticket for the next three years.

Since this might be a long night, your guide will bring along some traditional Icelandic pastry and hot beverages to keep you warm, as well as a complimentary blanket.

Don't miss your once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the spectacular aurora borealis. Check availability by choosing a date.
