Experience the mysterious Northern Lights in Iceland with their ghostly dance in the winter night sky and learn about the science behind the magic. Join the Northern Lights Mystery Tour.
The Northern Lights Mystery Tour takes you out of the city lights in hope of seeing the Northern Lights.
Aurora Borealis, another name for the Northern Lights, are a natural phenomenon and therefore sighting is not guaranteed. We will drive you to the countryside, into complete darkness, in hope of seeing the skies glow.
What will I do?
When Northern Lights have been spotted, you will be able to go outside and see the fantastic shapes and colors in the dark sky. You will have plenty of time to take photos and truly enjoy the moment.
Why should I go?
Iceland is an ideal place to see the Northern Lights due to our location on the planet. We have operated Northern Lights tours for more than 10 years. Our staff is therefore very experienced and aware of the necessary factors increasing your chance of seeing the Northern Lights.
So if you have the opportunity to see and enjoy something so spectacular, well – we suggest you take it!
