As night falls we escape the city lights and and embark on a journey in a minibus to hunt for the northern lights.
As the name suggests, the Northern Lights originate in the northern hemisphere and occur when particles from a solar flair penetrate through the Earth’s magnetic field. When those charged particles collide with molecules in our atmosphere these magical colours can be visible in the sky.
They often start out quite faint but can quickly take on different shapes and colours, sometimes they dance and twirl and sometimes it’s like they slowly fade in and out. Green and white Auroras are the most common but sometimes they can be blue, yellow and purple.
After pick-up from Reykjavik it’s time to head towards the countryside. The route is different each time depending on the Aurora forecast. Your guides will tell you all about this fascinating phenomenon and of course some fun stories and myths surrounding this phenomenon. The tour takes about 4 hours and when the northern lights are spotted your guide will take free photographs of you with the Auroras to capture the moment. If you’re bringing your own camera, a tripod is essential.
Remember to dress warm, the Icelandic winter nights can get really cold.
Please note: Unfortunately no one can guarantee you’ll see the northern lights as it’s dependent on atmospheric conditions and weather, but we will do our very best. We reserve the right to cancel a tour up until 18:15 if conditions are not ideal. If the tour goes ahead and no northern lights are spotted we’ll offer you to join another night free of charge upon availability.
