Northern Lights private tour

Seeing the Northern Lights is a magical spectacle of lights dancing in the sky. If you are visiting Iceland in fall or winter you have to see it... or at least try.

The Northern Lights are visible in fall or winter time in Iceland. The conditions need to be right, you can only see the Northern Lights when the sky is dark and not to cloudy.

Please note that the Northern Lights are never the same, they vary in color, form and duration.

 Seeing the Northern Lights dancing in the sky on a winter evening is hypnotizing. A spectacle of dancing colours like you've never seen before. It's magical. You have to see it. Check booking availability now, by choosing a date.
