Northern Lights Exploration Reykjavík

Frozen Night, Mystery & Magic

On the Northern Lights Exploration tour we focus on finding the perfect location to witness the magic of the Northern Lights and the dark arctic sky. We go in small groups, no more than 15 passengers and our guests get enough time to enjoy the show. 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 Hotel or Guesthouse and drive out to the countryside or up to the mountains, away from electric glow and city sounds. You will be able to enjoy the beautiful night sky at the best possible situation, of course depending on weather.

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.

This tour is also available as a private tour:
