Private Northern Lights Exploration from Akureyri

Frozen Night, Mystery & Magic

On the Northern Lights Horizon Private Tour from Akureyri we focus on finding the perfect location to witness the magic of the Northern Lights and the dark arctic sky.

Private Northern Lights Exploration tour gives you a unique opportunity to enjoy the spectacle of the Northern Lights on your own terms and gives you direct access to our expert guide. 

The Northern Lights Tour is a hunting experience. To go into the dark, frozen winter night and observe an unbelievable display of color, light, and texture, is like waking up in a fairy-tale, full of mystery and magic.

We pick you up at your accommodation in Akureyri and drive out to the countryside away from electric glow and city sounds. The tour is a private excursion where you control the time spent on each location, in collaboration with your guide.

The Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis, are a natural phenomenon visible in the Northern Hemisphere. A unique display of light caused by a particle collision in the magnetic field of the polar cap.

Our goal in not only to find the right sights for best photograph but also to take our time to enjoy this fragile single moment that will never come again but you might remember for the rest of your life.
