During the journey, our passionate Northern Lights guides will impart their extensive insights about this mesmerizing phenomenon, gearing you up for the upcoming night and providing valuable camera tips.

In case there are no lights
Witnessing the Northern Lights stands as an unparalleled encounter and an essential Icelandic experience. Yet, the elusive nature of these lights defies precise prediction, making a sighting far from guaranteed. Our dedicated experts diligently assess each situation to confirm tours only proceed when a favorable chance of encountering the lights exists. In the event that the aurora eludes you, we extend a gracious offer: a complimentary reattempt at the tour, valid for up to three years.
