Aurora Borealis Northern Lights Tour from Reykjavik
US$ 63.45
Experience the spectacular natural showcase of the Northern Lights during an unforgettable 3-hour tour from Reykjavik. Venture into the penetrating darkness of an Icelandic winter night, far from the glittering city lights, in a warm, comfortable vehicle and travel to an ideal spot from which to view the Northern Lights, otherwise known as the Aurora Borealis. With luck, see an awe-inspiring display of vivid color and enrich your knowledge of the science behind the phenomena with your expert guide.
What to Expect
Dress warm, and get ready to hunt the northern lights. Listen to your expert guide as they explain the science behind the natural phenomenon as you drive deeper into the dark of the Icelandic night. The lights are at their most frequent in late autumn and winter/early spring. Between the autumn equinox and spring equinox (15 September – 15 April), However, the weather is also of importance, and September, October and November tend to be wet and snow-less in the north.

From December the weather dries up, and there is normally plenty of snow. If you come in December or January, you experience the polar nights with atmospheric evenings and very short days. In February and March the days are longer and you see more of the snow-clad landscapes during daytime, and the evenings still offer maximum chances to spot the northern lights.

Note: seeing the northern lights cannot be guaranteed. Some weeks, you are treated to fantastic displays, repeated several times during the evening. Other times, the snow falls densely, or the northern lights simply stay away. Naturally, the longer you stay and the more time you set aside, the better the odds.

It was nice, but not wow as expected!

The guide was very nice and the hot chocolate and cookies were good, specially in the cold. We did see the northern lights but I was disappointed. The weather was a bit cloudy so not much to do about that, but the spot chosen was...More
