About our Northern Lights tours
The Happy Tours bus takes you out of Reykjavík City Area to see the bright dancing lights of the aurora. The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) are one of the most spectacular shows in Iceland and can frequently be seen during the winter months.
It‘s like a mighty symphonic ballet with muted sound. No words can describe the feeling of observing the Northern Lights, this is something that you have to experience yourself!
The Northern Lights can be visible on a clear winter night and will light up the sky with green colour, often with touches of pink around the edges and occasionally a deep violet centre.
This often dramatic display is caused by the collision of charged particles from the sun with the earth’s magnetic field.
We will drive into the countryside away from the city lights in search of the Aurora Borealis. The route we take may depend on the weather and the road conditions each time.
Because Aurora Borealis is a natural phenomenon, sightings are not guaranteed.
We recommend warm clothes, a cap and gloves for this tour.
Notice: We can not guarantee the Northern Lights will be visible on every tour. If you don‘t see the lights, you are welcome to join the tour again free of charge on the next available day.
If we have to cancel the Northern Lights Tour due to unfavorable weather conditions we offer you a number of choices:
-you can go on the tour another night (change your tour date free of charge)
-you can cancel your reservation and we issue a full refund
