Northern Lights Minibus Tour

Reserve your place on this cozy minibus tour and go hunting for the Northern Lights among new friends! This tour is for anyone who has ever admired pictures of the Northern Lights and wished they could run away to Iceland.

You’ll finally see them yourself on this special evening. With a small group, You can have your own communion with nature, and ask your guide all the questions you have. You’ll be picked up at your accommodation and whisked off to the country away from the noise and bright lights of Reykjavik, allowing you to hunt for the Northern Lights in the silence and darkness of the Icelandic winter.

You’ll be outside in the elements while you hunt for the Aurora, so be sure to bundle up and wear your favorite woolen socks. Your tour guides will help to keep you warm with a supply of hot chocolate and ginger biscuits.

Remember that although they are startling, the Lights are also unpredictable: The Aurora Forecast in Iceland gives a likelihood every day of where they may be found, but sightings cannot be guaranteed. If you are unlucky and don’t spot any Northern Lights on your tour, you can book yourself another night - for free!

What color do you hope to see? The Northern Lights can be white, blue, green, pink or even red. These colors are caused by particles from solar winds slamming into the earth’s magnetic field. When these charged particles hit the oxygen-rich atmosphere, they react with the different chemicals and burst into glorious color! For example, oxygen atoms are more likely to emit green light, while nitrogen is likely to cause a red Aurora. It is a truly beautiful sight.

Don’t miss this brilliant display of Nature’s very own! Check the booking availability by pressing “Choose a date” above.
