August – April
This Northern Lights Minibus Tour offers a personal, small group experience. With a maximum of 16 guests per tour, you will be accompanied by a knowledgeable local guide. Departing from Reykjavík, you’ll drive away from the light pollution of the city and go on a hunt for these elusive lights. This tour offers a great Northern Lights experience in Iceland. You’ll travel in a comfortable minibus with free WiFi on board so you can share your experience as you go!
After pickup in Reykjavík, you will be driven out of the city with an experienced Northern Lights guide. Before leaving the city your guide will decide which direction to take based on the Northern Lights forecast. The best place to view the aurora borealis varies from day to day, depending on factors such as cloud cover, weather and more.
Once the route is set, the adventure is on! When the best location is found, you’ll exit the minibus and get warm blankets so that you can stay as warm as possible as you watch the light show above you. Not only that, but you’ll also get hot chocolate and an Icelandic pastry to enjoy.
After what has hopefully been a successful hunt for the Northern Lights, your guide will drop you off at your selected location in Reykjavík.
