Small-Group Deluxe Northern Lights Tour from Reykjavik
From US$98.06
Ideal for travelers looking to spot the northern lights while traveling in comfort, this minivan tour takes you out of Reykjavik’s light pollution in search of the best places to witness the radiant spectacle. Along the way, get treated to a warm blanket, hot chocolate, and Icelandic pastries. Best of all, if you don’t spot the lights on your particular evening, you can book for another night free of charge.
What to Expect
Begin your tour by meeting your driver and guide at the city-designated pickup spot. Settle into your climate-controlled minivan and head out as far from Reykjavik as possible.

Your guide looks for clear skies and takes you to the best places to spot the northern lights. En route, listen to Icelandic folktales and learn about how the lights form when solar particles collide with Earth’s atmosphere.

Drive through the dark countryside, stopping to stretch your legs and enjoy the view. With luck, observe the lights, and take photos with a supplied tripod if you’d like. Stay warm with a hot chocolate and Icelandic pastries. If you don’t spot anything, you can book the next trip for free.

Afterward, make the return journey to Reykjavik for a drop-off near your hotel.

Thank you Pioneer751262 for booking with us and taking time to share your experiences. Sorry about the sound system in the bus - I will definitely ask my maintenance staff check it to prevent this from happening again.
