Our hunt for the elusive Aurora Borealis brings us far from the city lights as we search for these magnificent auroras. On a clear night, the Northern Lights might swirl in a wild and carefree dance across the sky in dramatic shapes, colours, patterns and sizes.

Since the Northern Lights are only visible on clear nights from September through April, we reserve the right to cancel this tour if the evening sky is very cloudy or weather conditions are not favourable. All hotels and booking agents in Reykjavik are informed by e-mail at about 18:00 if we cancel the tour, so please contact the front desk of your hotel. Before this tour starts, we check the weather forecast for the south-western part of Iceland, varying the journey each night to travel to where there is the best possibility to see the Northern Lights.

Please note: We cannot guarantee sightings even if the weather is perfect. In these cases, we offer our customers a second tour free of charge.
