Gorgeous Northern Lights Bus Tour

Take advantage of this opportunity to see the marvelous Northern Lights! This is one of the must-see phenomena in the dark of Iceland’s winter months. In fact, it has become so popular that people have begun to book their tours more than a year in advance!

You’ll be picked up at your accommodation and taken to the country outside of Reykjavik for the best possible viewing on a clear night, far from the lights of the city. You’ll stand in the cozy embrace of the darkness and cast your eyes above in order to see these magical lights in the sky. Be sure to dress warmly and bring your camera. Though catching the Northern Lights on film can be tricky, your guides are happy to help you capture the moment.

The Northern Lights are caused by particles from solar winds disturbing the Earth’s magnetosphere. They are centered on the earth’s magnetic poles, and so are generally visible only in countries in the far north or south. Even some areas in Scandinavia, such as Denmark, do not often get to experience the wonderful glow of the Aurora.

This is why everyone, locals and visitors alike, feel that the Northern Lights are very special. When you see them, it is easy to feel connected to all those who have ever looked up at the night sky and gazed in awe at the strange colors shimmering there.

The guides on this tour have much experience in predicting weather conditions and will do their best to provide you the Northern Lights experience you are hoping for; however, if the Northern Lights decide not to cooperate, they are happy to let you try again on another night – for free! Contact your tour provider to learn more.

Don’t miss your chance to see the famous Northern Lights with your own eyes! Check availability by choosing a date.
