Tour Description

Join our minibus tour of 16 people maximum tour to explore the magnificent northern lights. You will be picked up from either your hotel, guesthouse or bus stop starting 30 minutes before departure time.

Our journey will take us outside of the city limits away from any light pollution as the Northern Lights are harder to see from Reykjavík. To which location it is hard to say, it will depend on the cloud coverage and activity in the evening. We try to keep it as short a drive as possible and we might stop at several locations as the lights can be quite elusive and often it will be a waiting game for this beautiful phenomenon, which might be perfect while your guide sets up his camera for the free photoshoot of your group.

On this journey we are going to offer you Jungle Cacao – 100% chocolate hand shipped from the Mayan jungle and to stargaze under the winter sky with us as we tempt the Northern Lights. (Anyone with a heart condition or taking strong medication should avoid cacao).

But don’t worry we also have regular hot chocolate on this journey and we leave the choice to you. Everyone is welcome! you must let us know if you wish to try the Jungle Cacao.

A little note on the Northern Lights, they are fickle and elusive. They are very common in Iceland but alas cannot be promised by anyone so in order to make sure that you get another chance to see them we will take you a second time if your first time out turned out to be only stargazing and cacao. This re-use ticket is valid for two years after purchase.

If the tour is canceled and you are not able to make a reschedule before you leave we will refund fully. Please send an email to the address given below to claim your free Aurora photos after the tour has concluded – include a description of your clothing.
