4-Hour Northern Lights Small-Group Tour from Reykjavík

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: EastWest, Skutuvogur 6, Reykjavik 104 Iceland

    First off, you will start your hunt for the Northern Lights with a bit of planning via the Aurora forecast and start your exploration by heading in that direction. You might drive for up to one hour to a good spot and perhaps wait for the lights. At this point, take out the hot chocolate and Icelandic pastries. Also have Icelandic wool blankets on board the minibus to keep you warm while standing outside.

    There may be the decision of changing spots, by interacting with other locals as there are many different people outside looking for lights every night. This is of course done to increase the possibilities of finding some Northern Lights. If not, you get to try again upon your availability or the next good forecast.  

    By traveling in a minibus you get the qualities of a smaller group of no more than 16 people, as crowds are being avoided for the best spot available.

    Duration: 4 hours

    There is a lot of hype about the Northern Lights, but the reality can be disappointing. Most of the tour operators offer a free return visit if you don’t see the lights, but it’s as judged by the guide himself. It’s nature so can’t be fully predicted of course and our guide

    I started this tour on a bad note because the bus was an hour late picking us up. The ride itself was fine, we technically saw the Northern Lights but they were so dim that we could barely see them. They make it sound like you'll get a free photo but w you have to pay for it.

    Ingo, our guide and driver worked very hard to find us a view of the Northern Lights. It was Difficult night cloudy and changeable, but he did not give up and in the end we were almost alone in being successful. I was most impressed by the way he coordinated aps and with other

    Tour was ok, we did manage to see the lights, which look different on camera to what we actually saw. We were picked up by our guide in a heated mini van along with 6 others and made our way about an hour outside of Reky town to what looked like a field. We saw little movements

    Thank you Sweetie for spending the time to share with us your thoughts. We apologize that we did not exceed the standard that you expected.

    Ok, so I booked this trip on a cloudy day so I thought there is nooo way I could see anything. But alas! yes, I did, yes I did indeed! All good points for this one: The driver picked me up on time (which is important as it was cold and windy that evening). Then he spent a good
