Northern Lights and Stargazing:Small Group Tour with Local Guides from Reykjavik

The Northern Lights in Iceland attracts worldwide visitors, but knowing when and where to go for a sighting isn’t easy. On this tour, your guide drives you to the best spots in a heated 4x4 vehicle. This small-group tour includes round-trip travel from Reykjavik and a telescope for views. If you don’t see the Northern Lights on your tour, you may rebook free of charge, and weather cancellations are refunded.

Incredible experience of aurora borealis with Gandri. Ideal location for the night, nice superjeep, great hot chocolate and very nice company! Pictures the day after! Will be back in 2024 : ) Fully recommend this experience.

The guide was perfect, doing whatever he could to make our experience unforgivable. They took as many pictures as we wanted and did detaild explanations about the Nothern Lights and also about the stars, they even have telescope to show us the stars. The hot chocolate is also something very special.

I honestly have nothing negative to say about my experience on this tour. Þröstur is an incredibly nice guide and thanks to his knowledge we got to see quite strong lights after waiting for the skies to clear up. Group size was perfect, pick-up from Reykjavik and ride were very smooth, right on time. This is the only northern lights tour I've been on so I wouldn't be able to compare it to let's say a bus tour, but I'd highly recommend this one if you don't mind spending a little more.

I discovered this tour thanks to the folks at Hidden Iceland who helped me create an itinerary for a trip during winter (December). I appreciate very much that Happy World conducts small group tours as we did not want to be in a large bus or part of a large convoy with lots and lots of people. We were lucky to have had an upbeat, happy, and enthusiastic guide, Þröstur, who gladly shared his lifelong passion and extensive knowledge about the stars and the northern lights. He did an absolutely fantastic job at creating a fun, informative and memorable experience for the group! He managed our expectations well, keeping our optimism high and expectations low. When booking a trip like this, remember that nature decides what happens and we are just in it for the ride. It’s up to us to make the best of whatever we get. On our first attempt, we had clear skies but not enough activity to see the Northern Lights. On our second attempt, we had cloudy skies and did not see anything either. On both these evenings, the team was very professional and they did their very best to select the best spots with better viewing possibilities. We appreciated that the Happy World team sent us timely email updates each evening that we were available to join if the Northern Lights hunt was a go or no-go. It allowed us to make plans accordingly and not waste any time during evenings when the conditions are not ideal. As we were not lucky enough this trip, our booking with Happy World allows us to join again on a future visit. And we hope to join one of Þröstur’s groups again, hopefully we’ll get to see the Northern Lights then. Highly recommend this team!

What an unbelievable experience! Would highly recommend spending the extra money and going for a small tour such as this. Our guide Pröstur was amazing. So knowledgeable and took us to the perfect location so we had the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights. We had one tour cancelled but went out the following night and Happy world were excellent at communicating and organising our tour. Would highly recommend to anyone who is serious about seeing the northern lights.
