About Reykjavik Excursions Northern Lights Tour
The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis are a spectacular natural phenomenon, often seen dancing around in fantastic colours across the Icelandic Arctic sky. The Northern lights are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. That creates this wonderful light effect, known as the Aurora Borealis.The locations visited are different every tour since we go where it’s most likely to see the Northern Lights each day. This tour is dependant on weather and sightings are not guaranteed. Refreshments not included.

We were not fortunate enough to see the lights but our guide, Eric, was fabulous. Knowledgeable, friendly and possibly the most helpful tour guide ever. This included setting up people's cameras, making arrangements for people to get home and chatting to everybody while waiting.
