Excellent Northern Lights Small-Group Minibus Tour from Reykjavik!

Small Groups Northern Lights Tours in Iceland

For many, the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights is the reason for a visit to Iceland during the winter. The season, with its pure and crisp air, offers some of the best conditions for seeing stars and frequent sightings of the Northern Lights. You can see the Northern Lights in most places far north, close to the North Pole, but Iceland’s clear skies and beautiful scenery make for the best possible backdrop. And if you aren’t planning a visit in the winter, it’s impossible to see the Northern Lights, but you can see so many other incredible sights on our Golden Circle Waterfall Tour and our Iceland South Coast Tour.

 The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, are a spectacular natural phenomenon, often seen dancing around in fantastic colours across the Icelandic Arctic sky. See if you can spot them for yourself on a 3-5 hours evening Minibus tour from Reykjavik.

Northern Lights tours in Iceland from Reykjavik

The Northern Lights are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun’s solar energy with the upper atmosphere of the earth near the area of the North Pole. This reaction creates this wonderful light effect, known as the Aurora Borealis as the charged particles rush towards the magnetically charged poles of the planet, creating a cosmic light show!

 The locations visited differ from day-to-day, but you will head in the direction with the most chance of seeing one of Mother Nature’s greatest shows. As the tour is weather dependent, seeing the Northern Lights is not guaranteed even though the tour is operated. The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and as part of nature, unpredictable we cannot guarantee how much you will see on the night you going for the hunt, but no other tour guide can guarantee this either. What we can guarantee is that we do everything we can to keep on top of when and where the best sightings are, rushing our guests out from Reykjavik in search of the Aurora.
