What to Expect
Northern Lights Deluxe

This unique tour is part of a joint venture between Servio and BusTravel Iceland, two of the most trusted brands in the Icelandic tourist industry. Servio is a high-end transportation service provider that specializes in luxury, security, and comfort. BusTravel Iceland is an experienced day tour operator founded in 1960 but reimagined in 2015 to explore new and exciting ways to share the wonders of Icelandic nature with customers. Together we bring experience, reliability, and a high level of service to what we hope will be a unique and unforgettable part of your stay in Iceland.

This special tour requires a special bus – our customized Setra TopClass S 516 HDH. The Setra comes with 29 roomy leather seats, onboard Wi-Fi, electrical outlets to power your devices, a cozy lounge area, and, most important, a transparent roof that allows for a panoramic view of the northern lights from the comfort and safety of the vehicle.

The tour begins with an evening pickup at your accommodation in Reykjavík. Once everyone is onboard, we’ll set off into the surrounding countryside in search of clear skies and the best northern lights displays. Prior to departure, our experienced team will have scouted the weather forecast for prime sighting locations. Along the way you’ll receive entertaining and insightful commentary from one of our professional English-speaking guides, and once on-site, light refreshments will be served as the breathtaking spectacle of the northern lights unfolds above you.

Booking this Northern Lights tour also gives you a free ticket to visit the Aurora Museum in Reykjavik, Grandagarður 2, 101 Reykjavík. The free entrance is only valid on the day you join the tour, from the time we announce whether the tour is ON (by email and on our website). The entrance fees to the Aurora Reykjavik exhibition are complementary meaning that if you do not wish to go to the museum, there is no partial refund.

Please note that this tour will only operate on evenings when northern lights activity is likely. Remember, however, that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, and viewing them cannot be guaranteed. If by chance there are no northern lights to be seen during your tour, we invite you to rebook on a regular BusTravel Iceland northern lights tour at no extra charge. If we are unable to accommodate you during your stay, either because of availability or weather, you will receive a full refund.

Great staff but not sure Iceland really sees the lights that often

The guides are great and friendly. We saw nothing the first night and were rearranged for free to attend last night. Unfortunately no luck again. I'm really not so sure Iceland gets that good a view of the lights but they're not gonna say that,...More
