The Private Northern Lights Tour

Looking for a private Northern Lights tour in Iceland? Iceland Adventure Tours offers custom private tours where you can enjoy the Northern Lights away from the major crowds. With various vehicles available, we tailor-made tours for couples, families, and groups.

Your tour can, for example, include a stop at a delicious restaurant on the countryside or a bubbly surprise to celebrate a special occasion. With regular vehicles, super jeeps and minibusses available, we’ll create the perfect private tour for you.

All private tours include pickup and dropoff in Reykjavík. During all tours, you will be accompanied by a local driver/guide who will search for the best spot for a Northern Lights viewing. As the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, the best place to view them varies from day to day.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are pickup and dropoff in Reykjavík included on this tour?

Yes, both pickup and dropoff in Reykjavík are included in a private tour.

Please note that due to restrictions on large vehicle traffic in the downtown area of Reykjavík, some guest may be picked up at the nearest designated pickup point. Your agent will inform you of the location of the pickup at booking.

We can customize all tours and arrange pickup for private tours outside of the Reykjavík area, for example at the Blue Lagoon Retreat Hotel, the Golden Circle area, Selfoss, Keflavík and other nearby locations.

Is this tour suitable for children?

Yes, children of all ages are welcome on this tour. Please keep in mind that as this is an evening tour, you won’t be returning to Reykjavík until late evening / after midnight.

If you need a child seat or a booster seat, please let us know in advance.

Is a sighting of the Northern Lights guaranteed on this tour?

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon so sightings of it can never be guaranteed.

If it is unlikely that the Northern Lights will make an appearance or weather conditions are bad, the tour will be canceled and well try to reschedule your tour or offer a full refund.

If the tour does go out but we don't see any Northern Lights, will we be able to try again for free?

We always try our best to predict the likelihood of Northern Lights sightings and if we feel there is a low chance of sightings or the weather conditions are not favorable, we will cancel the tour and offer you to re-schedule for another night. If you are unable to go on another night we will offer a full refund.

If the tour does go out but you do not see Northern Lights, we do not offer a refund or the chance to go again for free on a private tour. We can offer you a discount off another tour.

What should I wear on this tour?

You should wear warm clothing, both as your first and second layer. Keep in mind that it can get quite cold in Iceland, not the least when standing still looking at the night sky, during the cold nights.

You should also wear good shoes with a solid grip, a warm cap, and gloves.

Is dinner included on this tour?

No, dinner is not included in the tour price but we can arrange a custom tour for you where you can stop at a restaurant during the tour.

What is the duration of this tour?

The duration of the tour varies depending on what type of private tour you want to experience. A regular Northern Lights viewing takes about 4 hours. If you would like to stop at a restaurant the tour takes about 6 hours.

We can customize all tours so if you would like a longer tour, email us at with your request.
