Description

Hunt for the aurora borealis on a guided group tour from Reykjavik. Witness the unique starry sky with the flash of light cutting across the Icelandic landscape. We meet at the Tour Bus Stops in downtown, and other select hotels outside downtown and located within Reykjavik. Our group size can vary based on the season it can be a max of 30-40 people per group. Please note that pickup and drop off are included in our tour duration. This duration may adjust is we have an early appearance of the lights, or if we need to take a little extra time for the hunt. The journey for the Northern Lights will go outside of the city limits away from as much light pollution as possible, the northern lights are harder to see from Reykjavík. The end location is not pre-determined as it will depend on the cloud coverage and activity in the evening. The drive will be kept as short as possible and you might stop at several locations as the lights can be quite elusive. If we have a spot the guide determines as a good location, we might stay in that spot- It is often a waiting game for this beautiful phenomenon, but it is always worth it. As you search for the aurora borealis, your guide will set up their camera for photos of your group. Your tour guide will ensure everybody gets an opportunity for a photo. Curl up in warm blankets and enjoy a self-service selection of hot chocolate and snacks and enjoy some stargazing while we wait for the aurora to appear. If our hunt is successful, we email photos using a drop box link within 7 days of your tour to the email provided with the booking. THIS TOUR RUNS DEPENDENT ON WEATHER - every day we assess the situation and decide whether or not to run the tour. This decision is made by 5 PM, in the case of a canceled tour due to weather you will be notified at this time, and feel free to send us any questions to our email. We started out as one guide wanting to share and give more. With growing demand, the team has grown and our team of adventure-loving guides will be with you on your tour with us. This is not a single-man operation, but a family of guides who believe in the vision David has for the industry.
