Full description
Experience a winter night in Iceland as you travel by comfortable bus in search of a dark spot and clear skies to see the northern lights.

Escape the light pollution of the city to increase the chance of seeing the lights. You’ll admire the stars above while waiting for mother nature to light up the sky in a swirling dance of green light. The length of the tour varies but is typically from 3-5 hours.

You’ll need to dress in warm clothing and you'll have a hot cocoa to keep help keep you warm during the wait for the lights.

Your guide will explain this natural phenomenon and have stories in abundance about mysterious creatures, folklore, ghost and elves.

A word of advice is to book the Northern Lights Bus Tour at the beginning of your stay, just in case conditions are not favorable. Note that if you do go on the tour and do not see the lights, then you will have another chance to go free of charge. You’ll need to re-book for the following night early on as the tour sells out.
Includes
  • Pick-up
