Northern Lights Mystery tour
Join us for a mysterious trip, on a bright starry night, any time from the onset of the autumn darkness until the light nights of spring, we may be lucky enough to witness one of nature's most spectacular displays; the phenomenon which we call the northern lights.
Far from the industrial glow of the city, we hunt for the elusive northern lights - also known as the aurora borealis. Together we will search for these magnificent auroras. On a clear night, we can see the northern lights swirling in a wild and carefree dance across the heavens in dramatic shapes, colours, patterns and sizes. They truly are amazing sights to behold.
The northern lights are visible from September through April but can only be seen on a clear night. Therefore, we reserve the right to cancel this tour if the evening sky is heavily clouded or weather conditions are not favourable. Before we start this tour we always check the weather forecast around the southwestern part of Iceland. From experience, we decide where each journey will lead us, for the best possibilities to see the northern lights. Therefore, we reserve the right to cancel this tour if the evening sky is heavily clouded or weather conditions are not favourable.
It is best to book this tour with short notice at the reception of the Reykjavík hostels, but you are of course welcome to book anytime, and our hostels will help you rebook your tour if your scheduled tour is cancelled. Please feel free to contact us for further information.
Duration: 3-5 hours
