Northern lights trips in Iceland Experience Aurora Borealis in an evening excursion from Reykjavik. Combine the quest for the mystery lights with a guided super jeep 4x4 tour and eat at one of Iceland´s best seafood restaurants.
The best chances of seeing the northern lights is during wintertime, since the sky needs to be dark to see them and in winter we have such long nights and short days in Iceland and darkness is one of the conditions of seeing the lights. The sky needs to be clear since the lights are not visible through clouds.
Plan your day trip in Iceland and book your northern lights tour.
The Northern Lights, or aurora borealis, illuminate Iceland’s winter sky with incredible displays of swirling colours and dancing ribbons of light. With its serene wilderness, proximity to the Arctic Circle, and long winter nights without the glare of big cities, Iceland is endowed with ideal conditions for viewing this myth-inspiring natural phenomenon, the result of charged particles from solar winds colliding with earth’s magnetic field. Although Northern Lights sightings cannot be guaranteed, these guided evening tours may offer sightings of other sorts: ghosts, elves, trolls, or (delicious) creatures from the sea!
