Tour Description – Northern Lights Bus Tour

The Northern Lights Bus tour takes you out of Reykjavik city to see the bright dancing lights of the aurora. The Northern Lights are one of the most spectacular shows in Iceland and can frequently be seen during the winter moths.

The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis are actually the result of collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere.

The locations visited are different from day to day we head in the direction with the most chances of seeing Northern Lights. As this tour is weather dependent and sightings are not guaranteed you are welcome to join another Northern Lights tour free of charge.

  2. Bustravel excursions - excellent , would recommend

    We used Bustravel for 2 tours, the northern lights and golden circle.I found the golden circle tour very interesting and the tour guide – I think his name was Ragnar – was very informative and funny with his commentary about the history and geology of Iceland.The locations were stunning and there was plenty of stops for photos, toilet breaks and food etc.I would recommend Bustravel and the golden circle tour.
    We also went on a northern lights tour with Bustravel.It was cancelled due to cloud cover on the date we booked but they sent an e mail at 5pm to inform us that it was off, we telephoned them to reschedule for the next night.This trip went ahead and we were taken to 2 locations to view the lights,again,bustravel were well organised and on time and I would recommend. This tour with them.+
