An experience I will never forget. Advisable to everyone visiting Iceland, to try to get a glimpse of the Northern lights. This phenomin is so mysterious that you maybe will catch up with a bunch of trolls.

Wanted to see the northern lights and the conditions on evening of trip were perfect. We saw a spectacular display of lights from service station on the way to a field approx. 20 km from Reykjavik to get a better view.Was quite happy to stand in field until after midnight or beyond, however, the driver was keen to leave and return to Reykjavik at about 11:30. It wasn't entirely his fault as some of the fellow passengers were either 'bored' or 'cold' or completely indifferent. Why did they bother going along and why were the 'dead-beats' not told to sit on the bus and wait ?

ITINERARY

Join us on a dark winter night to experience one of nature’s most spectacular displays, when the Northern lights dance across the sky in dramatic shapes and colors.

Located under the "Auroral Oval," Iceland is one of the best places on earth to experience the beautiful and mysterious northern lights.

Northern lights (Aurora Borealis) are most frequently seen around the North Pole, within an oval shaped region drawn around the Northern hemisphere called the "auroral oval." Iceland lies within this most active region meaning that the Northern lights are potentially visible from every place in Iceland.

In reality viewing conditions for Northern lights depend on many factors including geography, weather, the time of day and more. Crisp cold evenings with skies clear enough to see stars is a good indicator for auroral activity.

Operating Northern lights tours in Iceland for over 10 years has taught us a thing or two about this elusive phenomenon and how to decide where each trip should lead for best possibilities and viewing conditions.
