When autumn fades into winter and darkness settles over the Icelandic wilderness earlier and earlier, the captivating aurora borealis comes out to play. Venture out after the sun goes down to see this swirling, luminous spectacle as it dances across the star-studded northern sky.

Get picked up from your hotel or another meeting point and leave the bustle and light pollution of Reykjavik behind. Your guide leads you on an adventure out of the city, using their expertise to find the best spots for viewing the mysterious Northern Lights. As it shimmers into being in the winter sky overhead, marvel at the magical patterns, and dramatic colours of this natural phenomenon.

Listen to your guide describe the science behind this the marvellous natural event. When solar wind collides with charged particles in the high atmosphere, it manifests in radiating green and faint red lights. Watch the colours shift, intensify, and spin for hours on end as you observe, mesmerised by their shifting patterns.

Comfortable coach, friendly driver & guide, interesting to hear local information as we were driving around. Yes we were fortunate & did see a lovely display of the lights, we were given as much time as we liked to take our pictures or just relax & soak it all up. Purely amazing. Thank you.
