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.
