For many, the possibility of seeing the northern lights is the reason for a visit to Iceland during the winter. The season, with its pure and crisp air, offers some of the best conditions for seeing stars and frequent sightings of the aurora borealis.

Highlights

  • Search the sky above Iceland for the northern lights
  • Learn the basics of northern lights photography
  • Choose from 10 different languages on your in-bus audio guide

Description

Embark on a 3-hour excursion to see the northern lights, one of the most beautiful celestial displays found in nature. In addition, there are many other cosmic wonders waiting to be discovered. All you need to do is gaze skywards at the Arctic night canopy to marvel at the magic. Board one of the fleet’s new buses in Reykjavík, and take a comfortable seat where you’ll find a computer tablet and an in-bus audio guide (available in 10 languages). You’ll also find a USB charger and have access to the free WiFi on board. The audio guide provides useful tips on how best to capture the northern lights with your camera. You’ll not only be in search of the legendary and mesmerizing northern lights, but you’ll also be able to pinpoint some of the constellations of stars. Learn what they are and what they have represented to Icelandic ancestors and to different cultures throughout time. You’ll have assistance in finding the best-known constellations and stars. There are a few factors that determine whether it’s likely you’ll be able to see the northern lights and the guides are experts in reckoning your chances of seeing them. This means they have a high success rate, and do not go out unless they feel the odds are well in your favor. In order to find the northern lights you need 2 things: patience and warm clothing. If by chance you didn't bring a warm jacket, no worries. The tour operator has ultra-warm Aurora Jackets for rent!
