The Northern Lights by Bus

The Northern Lights by Bus
The Northern Lights can portray an incredibly bright display of celestial majesty.
Driving far, far away from the city lights is the optimal way of hunting for the Northern Lights.

Witness one of the great wonders of the world. When the weather is right, and cosmic conditions are in your favour, join this tour and head out in search of the unusual phenomena known as the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights.

Avoiding the light pollution of the city, you will be driven towards the area where the chances of seeing the Northern Lights are the highest. On the way, your guides will tell you all there is to know about this arctic marvel as well as pointing out any interesting landmarks on the way.

The night might be long, so you will be offered some light refreshments of kleina (a traditional Icelandic twisted doughnut) and hot cocoa to keep you warm. Be prepared for the fantastical show of lights which can appear in a variety of colours and infinite different arrangements.

Please remember to dress according to season and weather. Wear plenty of warm layers and don't forget the hat and gloves so that you can comfortably enjoy the celestial show before you.

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and, sadly, sightings can not be guaranteed. At 17:00, after checking forecast and conditions, your guides decide whether or not they operate the tour and inform you of their decision immediately.

Should the northern lights not be seen on your tour, you will be offered to join another tour another evening, free of charge. If you book a northern lights bus tour and conditions prevent your guides from running the tour for the duration of your stay in Iceland, you will, of course, receive a full refund.

The group size is always limited per bus to provide you with better service and a personal experience.

Don't miss out on this opportunity of seeing the Northern Lights in the perfect environment of comfort and care. Check availability by choosing a date.
