The elders say that the harsher the night‘s frost, the more intense the colors of the northern lights will be. Swirling and swaying overhead, displays are usually greenish-yellow but white, red and pink lights can also appear.
We leave the light pollution of the city in the evening, on this approximately four-hour tour and head out into the dark night in our super jeeps. Once we have found a suitable spot, we will stop to observe this fascinating natural phenomenon also known as Aurora Borealis. Given clear skies and a little bit of luck, sightings can occur from autumn through to spring.
NB. it is not possible to guarantee the Northern lights.
We do not leave town if weather conditions are not right and reschedule for another night.
Make sure you book your Northern Lights in Iceland tour for your first night in town in order to maximise your chances of sightings. Please note that the size of your group can grow if we’ve had to cancel several nights in a row due to weather. We indeed try our best to find Northern Lights for everyone!
