On the Northern Lights Mini Bus Tour from Reykjavík we focus on finding the perfect location to witness the magic of the Northern Lights and the dark arctic sky. We go in small groups and our guests get enough time to enjoy the show. To go into the dark, frozen winter night and observe an unbelievable display of color, light and texture, is like waking up in a fairy-tale, full of mystery and magic. We pick you up at your Hotel or Guesthouse and drive out to the countryside or up to the mountains, away from electric glow and city sounds. You will be able to enjoy the beautiful night sky at the best possible situation, of course depending on weather.

The Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis, are a natural phenomenon visible in the Northern Hemisphere. A unique display of light caused by a particle collision in the magnetic field of the polar cap.

Please make online booking at least 1 hour prior to the departure.

For late bookings call: +354 558 8899

We work with small groups, so dates tend to get fully booked rather early. Booking in advance allows us to organize the departures, so please, book in advance when possible.

During the winter, we may find icy conditions on the areas we visit, and the weather may be extremely windy and cold. Ice crampons can be useful, and warm clothing recommended.
