Each winter we are welcoming an increased number of people coming to Iceland in search of the famous Aurora Borealis. This fascinating natural phenomenon, otherwise known as the northern lights, is one of the most mesmerizing sights you will ever come across in your life. The dancing colors and shapes in the dark arctic sky will simply leave you awestruck.

You will be picked up at your selected pick up location in a custom-built 4×4 super jeep by our expert northern lights guide. We leave the lights of the city behind and head into the darkness for our adventure. On the search for the northern lights, we might travel through some of Iceland’s most spectacular natural sights without knowing but your guide is sure to let you know what the night is hiding. The super jeep gives us the flexibility to go off of the beaten path to locations the big buses can not reach. Giving us a greater chance to enjoy the northern lights and the wonders of the night sky without the discomfort of big crowds. In the cold night, there is nothing like some hot chocolate to keep warm and the brave ones can even add some Icelandic Brennivín to theirs!

Our guides take photos every time the northern lights are spotted so you can be sure to get your picture taken with the Aurora. See photos from previous tours here.

As the success of the Northern Lights Explorer tour is heavily dependent on weather conditions, we reserve the right to cancel departures until 18:15 on the day of the tour. If the tour goes ahead and no northern lights are seen we offer clients the chance to join another evening’s departure free of charge upon availability.

Remember to bring: Warm outdoor clothing, waterproof jacket and pants, headwear and gloves. Good warm shoes and woolly socks. Northern lights tours require you to watch the skies and that means you will be outside at night in Iceland in winter. Dress warmly, there is no such thing as too many layers of clothes on our Aurora tours.

Pick-up: Pick up starts at 8:30 p.m. You will be picked up from your selected location in Reykjavik. Please note, that the pick up can take up to 30 min.
Available pick-up points: Arctic Adventures’s pick-up list.

What are my options if my Northern Lights tour gets cancelled?

When Northern Lights tours are canceled it’s usually due to unfavorable weather conditions.

In that case, your options will be to:

1. Reschedule for another day.

2. Find another tour to do and use the deposit for it.

3. Get fully refunded.

In all cases you will need to contact our sales desk via email (info@adventures.is) or phone +354-562-7000.

How do I know if the Northern Lights tour is on for the evening?

Like you might have heard, the northern lights are a pretty difficult thing to predict. You can check en.vedur.is to see the forecast and if the level is high and the skies are clear then it’s very likely that the tour is going. We do update our website’s tour departure sheet with the information at 17:00 the latest. If the tour is canceled, you will receive an email from us.

If we think there is no chance at all of seeing the lights we will cancel the tour. We don’t want to bring you out and disappoint if there is no chance to see the lights.

Will I definitely see Northern Lights on the tour?

The Northern Lights are natural phenomena and we unfortunately cannot promise you will see them. Their appearance depends upon atmospheric and weather conditions.

"Overall very satisfied" | 5 stars By Verified customer 02/10/2017
Would have loved to view the lights from another location after the clouds came in and other tour groups started pouring in. But I'm happy overall that we got to see the lights by ourselves for a while before that happened, and before other tours crowded in, and that you guys provided hot chocolate!
"Artic Adventure Tours" | 5 stars By Verified customer 26/09/2017
We went on 3 tours with this company and they were the best out of the 3 we used. On time, guides are friendly and knowledgeable Highly recommend
"Excellent Tour" | 4 stars By Verified customer 22/09/2017
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The only problem was the driver was about 20 minutes past the 30 minute pick-up window (8:30-9pm). I was picked up around 9:20. It would have been helpful to receive a call/text that they were on the way. I had the key in the ignition of my car to leave, as I thought I'd missed the pick-up somehow and I couldn't reach anyone at the office. Luckily he pulled in just in time. Otherwise a great experience!
"Celestial!" | 5 stars By Verified customer 19/09/2017
Our guide was so knowledgeable of the Northern Lights and you could tell he lord what he does. He took amazing pictures and provide them at no cost! He brought us down by the water and toured around while waiting for the night to get a little darker! Such a great experience.
"Would recommend to everyone" | 5 stars By Verified customer 11/09/2017
