Capture the Magical
Northern Lights

Tour - Northern Lights

Join us on a once-in-a-lifetime experience and capture the northern lights. Iceland is one of the best places in the world to witness the Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis. The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon caused by the interaction between the Earth’s magnetic field and charged particles from the sun. The lights can appear as green, pink, blue, purple or red curtains dancing across the night sky.

To capture the best images of the Northern Lights, this tour provides expert guidance to help capture the elusive lights in all their glory. The tour takes you to the best locations away from the light pollution of the city to witness the stunning auroras in all their majesty. The guides have extensive knowledge of the area and will take you to the most optimal spots to see the lights. The country’s unique landscape offers a photographer’s paradise, and the Northern Lights add a magical touch to any photo.

During the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to capture unforgettable moments and take home stunning photos of this natural wonder. The Northern Lights are unpredictable, so having a guide with extensive experience in tracking and photographing them is crucial. The tour also offers the chance to learn about the science behind the lights and the myths and legends surrounding them.

The fine print:

  • Hunting the Northern Lights is exciting, but can be a challenge as there are many factors involved.
  • Aurora strength depends on solar activity in the days prior to the tour and we do our tours based on those readings. The Icelandic weather is famous for being constantly changing, with cloud cover affecting our view of the sky, stars, and of course the Northern Lights. With that in mind, we do read into 3 different weather reports in the days before tours and decide on locations based on these predictions. That is why we cannot guarantee that we will catch lights, but with us you will maximize your chances and be in the right spot to photograph them when they show up.
  • We will contact you the day before the first possible tour date or in some cases after 6pm (18:00) on the first possible tour date to let you know if the tour is on or not.
  • Due to high demand, please contact us for availability if you are booking within 2 days of tour date. Please let us know which dates you are available so we can help you pick the best possible night when we have the latest forecasts and don’t forget to let us know where you will be staying so we know where to pick you up.
