Premium Northern Lights Minibus Tour

An ideal retreat for the inquisitive in search of the aurora borealis.

On our premium tour, we take you out in a group of 17 guests maximum. Providing a more intimate experience, flexibility, more free time and more spontaneous encounters than traveling with a large group.

Travel with us on a quest for one of nature’s most beautiful natural phenomena. Witness this breathtaking display, as the auroras dance across the night’s sky and light up the heavens. This majestic rhythm is on displays during the darker months of the year, from September to April.

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 if the aurora borealis.

With our friendly and personal service you can be sure of a really enjoyable and memorable experience, and an excellent insight into the unique flavor of Icelandic landscape and history.

How do we find the lights?

When we call these tours a “hunt” for the northern lights we really mean it. These displays can be difficult to pin down but thankfully we have northern lights specialists on our team who read the weather data throughout the day! Their knowledge mixed with our team in the field looking for early signs of the lights and a little visit from lady luck allow us to get you to where the lights are likely to be and hopefully get you a great sighting.

In case that you don’t see the Northern Lights, you can reschedule for free to our Northern Lights Bus Tour as much as you want until the beautiful Aurora is seen. We are determined to make sure you see the lights!

Where do we go?

The location for a Northern Lights tour is not fixed. Because the lights can be highly unpredictable we will head out to a location where we think a sighting is the most likely. We may head out along the south coast or up towards the golden circle but in general we try to keep our travel times as short as possible so that you get the maximum amount of time with the lights.
