Northern Lights Bus via Bustravel Iceland
The Aurora Borealis is one of those natural spectacles that you will never
forget. These colorful displays happen when solar winds bring to our planet energetically-
charged particles that get into the atmosphere through the poles. That is the reason why
the Northern Lights are only enjoyable in high latitudes, and Iceland’s location is just perfect
to see them!
When the conditions are favorable, we drive you out of the city lights of Reykjavík
so that your eyes adapt to darkness and you can admire the beauty of the Aurora show at
its best. We choose different destinations every night depending on what the forecast looks
like to have the greatest chance of catching the Aurora. Our specialists pay attention to the
cloud cover and the wind before deciding where to go – sometimes along the South coast,
the Reykjanes peninsula or towards the Golden Circle area, but always trying to keep the
driving as short as possible so that you can enjoy the lights longer. Our team is trained and
experienced in order to provide you with the highest chances to see the Northern Lights.
However, nature is nature, and if it does not make the lights happen, you are welcome to
reschedule with us at no additional cost.
The bus tour starts with a pick-up service from your hotel or from one of the official pick-up points in Reykjavík, and
when all the guests are together, we go out to hunt the lights! Our guides will do their best
to find an excellent spot to witness the beauty of the Northern Lights, but do not forget to
bring warm clothes and boots with you!
We take you from the buzz and the lights of the city and head into the quiet darkness of the countryside to enjoy the natural spectacle of the aurora borealis.
Our destinations are different from day to day as we always head in the direction where we have the greatest chance of catching the lights. It can be a hunt, and we have a team of skilled hunters who do their utmost to provide you with the most enjoyable experience as possible. In the rare cases where we do not see the northern lights, you are welcome to join another northern lights tour free of charge.
