Northern Lights & Stargazing tour from Reykjavik, Iceland
From US$206.04
The Northern Lights in Iceland attracts worldwide visitors, but knowing when and where to go for a sighting isn’t easy. On this tour, your guide drives you to the best spots in a heated 4x4 vehicle. This small-group tour includes round-trip travel from Reykjavik and a telescope for views. If you don’t see the Northern Lights on your tour, you may rebook free of charge, and weather cancellations are refunded.
What to Expect
Expect an email confirming the tour the day-of, a decision based on weather. Your guide picks you up from your Reykjavik hotel by 4x4 vehicle and leads the way into the countryside to spot the Northern Lights.

With good planning and a little luck, you watch the Northern Lights dance across the evening skies. Peer into the provided telescope as your guide points out constellations and planets. Your tour includes a photograph with the Aurora Borealis behind you if it’s visible. Note that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings can never be guaranteed.

Relax and soak up the scenery with a hot chocolate and a pastry, then—around midnight—return in comfort to your Reykjavik hotel.
