We go in small groups, no more than 19 passengers per mini bus 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, or meet you at the fantastic Aurora Reykjavik Museum. We begin our Northern Lights hunt with a tour through the museum and give you an introduction on the physics behind the Northern Lights and how it is best to photograph them. After the tour of the museum we 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.
You will find detailed information on how to use cameras in the Aurora exhibition and have the chance to test your settings in the northern lights photo simulator. Ask the staff for assistance in case of doubts on how to use your device at its full potential.
You can rent a DSLR camera and tripod for your Northern Light hunt at Aurora Reykjavik Museum. Bring your own SD card or buy it at the Museum. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
This tour is also available as a private tour:
