Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

After 3 nights when the tour didn't run (they only run when there is a good chance of seeing the lights) we finally set out. You need a good quality camera as the naked eye isn't good enough to see the detail. You also need good thermal clothing as you will be out for over an hour in sub zero temperatures. Also make sure you book when there is no full moon as this would make the chances of seeing the lights almost nil

“Reykjavik Excursions Northern Lights - amazing life experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2009

This is a must do if visiting Reykavik. The guides on our tour were very friendly and informative. I don't want to give too much detail as I feel the best part of the trip is experiencing it all -- the drive through complete darkness, the search for color in the sky, and finally (hopefully) the chance to view the Northern Lights. We were fortunate enough to get a great viewing of the Northern Lights and awesome pictures to bring home. The guides gave us more than enough time to take it all in!
