Overview
Set out on a thrilling adventure in search of the Aurora Borealis on a small-group tour from Reykjavik. Based on forecasts and with the help of other experts on the ground, your professional guide is ready to chase down the best viewing spots for the Northern Lights. In the event that you have to wait at one location, stay cozy with blankets, hot chocolate, and Icelandic pastries.

    Stop: 4 hours
    First off, you will start your hunt for the Northern Lights with a bit of planning via the Aurora forecast and start your exploration by heading in that direction. You might drive for up to one hour to a good spot and perhaps wait for the lights. At this point, take out the hot chocolate and Icelandic pastries. Also have Icelandic wool blankets on board the minibus to keep you warm while standing outside. There may be the decision of changing spots, by interacting with other locals as there are many different people outside looking for lights every night. This is of course done to increase the possibilities of finding some Northern Lights. If not, you get to try again upon your availability or the next good forecast.   By traveling in a minibus you get the qualities of a smaller group of no more than 16 people, as crowds are being avoided for the best spot available.

This was a good, professional tour in a mini-bus style vehicle (seemed the standard tour vehicle while we were in Reykjavik, about 16 seats), it was comfortable, pretty warm, enough room but not loads (our bus was full). They had charging points which was handy given the length

EastWest is top notch! They are definitely a boutique tour provider and not a mass tour company. We had a few issues with Cancellations due to the Covid19 issue and they were very communicative and understanding. Peter our guide was great, hospitable and informative. He found a

We booked this tour after a recommendation from a friend. It was fairly cloudy the night we headed out and the previous day's tour had already been cancelled, so admittedly we weren't holding out too much hope for seeing the lights. However, as our trip was only a couple of

Due to the weather forecast it was foreseeable that there was not much to expect and even if the guide tells us at the beginning that it's nature and anything can happen, they should know that with this forecast there is nothing at all to be expected. So why do they offer tours
