Northern Lights Tour
A final decision is made at 17:00 hrs daily as to whether the tour will take place.
Furthermore, if for some reason mother nature doesn’t deliver on the night you do the tour, you will be given a voucher to take the tour again with us free of charge. In fact, its very important in that instance you re book for the free tour as soon as is possible. You can do this by either calling us or sending us an email.
Our tour begins departing from Reykjavik. We will escape the major light pollution of the city and head out to find darker skies.
Clear skies are essential and using only experienced guides with contacts in many places assures you that we will endeavour to find a viewing area that is clear. We consult several forecasts both weather and Aurora in order to better place us in the ideal location.
Whilst searching for the Aurora our guides will enlighten you with tales of local folklore and information about the Aurora. We look forward to welcoming you on our tour.
Terms & Conditions
All hotels and booking agents in and around Reykjavik will be informed if the tour is going ahead or not. We will inform them all by email of our decision by 17:00 hrs local time.
Please make sure that you speak to your hotel front desk or booking agent around that time to see if the tour is on or off.
Pick up for the Northern Lights tour is between 20:00 & 20:30 hrs but we recommend that you are ready in reception of your accommodation from 20:00.
We are good at what we do, however sometimes mother nature just does not deliver. In fact, we can never make any guarantee on any evening that the Aurora will appear. However, if we go out we believe there is a chance. Alternatively, we reserve the right to cancel/return from the tour at a time decided by our guides.
On our return we will endeavor to drop guests off at their original pick up point though sometimes there may be a need to drop guests off as close as possible to that point due to vehicular restrictions in Reykjavik which are changing all the time.
All cancellations by you must be made in person at your booking point, please email or call us at Thule travel within 24 hours of departure.
