After the Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon, you’ll be dropped off in Reykjavík for a few hours to refill your energy bar and put on more clothing, as the night’s adventure might get a bit cold.
Once night falls, we’ll embark on our Northern Lights hunt. You’ll be picked up again at 20:30 (8:30 p.m.), this time by your expert aurora guide, who will drive you out to secret viewpoints. The guides know the locations with as little light pollution as possible for the best viewing of the Northern Lights playing in the dark skies.
We’ll drive out to the best point in the auroral zone, which varies depending on solar activity. When the stream of charged particles from the Sun, i.e. the solar wind, enters Earth’s magnetic field, the resulting light emissions appear in the atmosphere as the Northern Lights.
All in all, we can’t tell you exactly where we’ll go, as the aurora borealis tends to be unpredictable, but our guides do their utmost to carefully monitor the weather and aurora forecasts so you have the best chance of glimpsing this light show. Witnessing the Northern Lights dancing in the night sky above Iceland’s wild and untamed landscape is an experience you’ll not soon forget!
During the celestial light show, the guide will take complimentary photos of you and the Aurora, so you can take souvenirs of your adventure home!
