  • View The Northern Lights without city light pollution

The Northern Lights grace Iceland's winter skies, visible from various locations across the country. Opting for a private tour for a small group, couples, or the family maximizes your chances of witnessing this natural spectacle. Leaving the city and its light pollution significantly improves the likelihood of spotting The Northern Lights. An experienced driver will navigate to spots with clear skies or breaks in the clouds, aiding in early detection of activity. For many, experiencing the The Northern Lights is a bucket list item worth pursuing wholeheartedly. Setting out to hunt for the lights with your dedicated driver offers a more intimate encounter with nature's display. Please be aware that sightings cannot be guaranteed. If the chances are unfavorable before starting the tour on your scheduled date, we will endeavor to reschedule your tour for a better opportunity.

Important Information

  • Always dress extra warm for a Northern Lights Tour since on clear winter nights in Iceland it gets cold. Make sure you know the right settings on your camera before heading out if you want to get good photos of the northern lights. Remember that it is extremely hard to predict the lights and almost impossible to know how strong they will be or how long they last. The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon that occurs around a 100 km up in the atmosphere.
