Northern Lights & Stargazing

On this tour we take you hunting for the Northern Lights and other magical sky events. We bring our powerful stargazing telescope for you to explore galaxies and stars while you wait for the Northern Lights. Our small tour allows us to get off the beaten path and away from the crowds to enjoy the Northern Lights in serenity. With a bit of luck and lots of planning you might even witness some rarely seen astrological events.

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and displays can never be guaranteed. Our destination is dictated by weather and where sightings are most likely. For a sighting we need three things to come together: solar storm, darkness and a clear sky. Overall, on any given night during dark hours in Iceland, your chances are about 50/50. We maximise this chance by going out when auroral activity and cloud cover forecasts are favourable. Our sighting rate is 90%.

Come see the the wonders of the night sky. Check availability by choosing a date.

Small, personal and cozy tours. Minimum 2 and maximum 16 passengers.
