Bask in the glow of the Northern Lights on this spectacular aurora hunting tour from Reykjavík, where you’ll be whisked away from the crowds for an authentic stargazing experience in Iceland. If seeing these celestial wonders with your own eyes is on your bucket list, secure your spot on now for an unforgettable excursion.

Your late-night adventure begins with a pickup in the capital city of Reykjavík, where you will meet your local guide and the rest of your small group. This tour is small-scaled and designed to provide an intimate and personal experience and a memorable and authentic winter adventure in Iceland.

Get ready to leave the bright city lights behind and trail off the beaten path, as your guide will use the aurora forecast to find the ideal location to experience the Northern Lights in the serenity of nature.

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings are never wholly guaranteed, but with knowledge of solar storm occurrences and the search for clear-skied nights, every effort is made to provide you with the best sighting chances possible.

If the lights decide to be shy, don't worry, you can try on another night.

The tour includes the using of a powerful telescope with which you can explore the stars and galaxies of the night sky during your aurora hunt. With a bit of luck and planning, you might also witness rare and wondrous astrological events such as meteor showers or a lunar eclipse.

Be prepared to spend a few hours out in nature with your travel companions and telescope, during which you will enjoy a complimentary scone and hot chocolate to warm you in the cold winter night.

Your adventure concludes with a drive back to Reykjavík City, where you can hopefully go through all your wonderful new photos of the Aurora Borealis.
