Many travelers want to see the northern lights in Iceland, but without a guide, it can be hard to know where to spot them. On this evening tour from Reykjavik, your driver and guide will take you to the best spots to view the northern lights. If you don’t spot them, rebook the tour for another night free of charge. Hotel pickup and drop-off ensures a seamless experience.
What to Expect
Start your evening northern lights adventure with a pickup from your central Reykjavik hotel. Drive out of the city, heading toward clearer skies and some of the best spots from which to see the northern lights.

Your guide explains why the aurora occurs, and the science behind the variations in its brightness and color. Head to locations where you are most likely to spot the lights based on the weather and “Aurora forecast.”

Follow the lights, admire them, and take pictures if you’ve brought a camera. If you don‘t see any, book the tour again free of charge on another night

Journey back to Reykjavik, where the tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel.

No lights but a great trip

Had a lovely evening trip with our two children to search for the lights. Unfortunately we didn’t see them but we saw some amazing stars, planets and an other worldly quality to the sky that you just don’t see at home. The pick up and...More
