4-Hour Northern Lights Small-Group Tour from Reykjavík

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    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.

    We saw them and they were amazing!! Maurizio was our exceptional guide. He took photos, had hot chocolate, and donuts. East-west did a great job.

    We really didn't have high hopes to see the NL on our tour. We had few days in Iceland, and this was our best shot the whole time we were there due to the weather. As I've seen others say, book when you get there,...More

    The main city church stands proud on the skyline and is unmissable. Plenty of parking and some local cafes too
