Discover the Northern Lights in a Small Group: Multiple Opportunities and Reykjavík's Aurora Centre Admission Included!

Catch the stunning Northern Lights in the sky, and if they're shy, rebook for free until they show. Included admission to the Aurora Centre's Northern Lights Exhibition on the tour date. The small group size ensures an intimate experience and personalized attention from your expert guide.

Seeing the northern lights is a pinnacle, bucket-list experience. Watching the ever-shifting lights flicker in the sky above mountains, and the ocean far from city lights is simply breathtaking!

Many tourists attempt to see the Northern Lights solo, but with a guided tour, your chances of success soar. Our expert team diligently checks cloud cover, aurora and space weather forecasts, leading you to the prime viewing spots – expertise makes a difference! Choosing a small group tour gives you a more personal experience.

If your tour date is before March 31st, this experience includes entry to the Aurora Reykjavík Northern Lights Centre, which can be used on the day of your tour. Here, you'll explore an interactive exhibition, enjoy the Aurora display on a 7-meter wide screen in 4K quality, and experience a captivating Virtual Reality Aurora show.

Remember, tour operations hinge on solar activity, cloud cover, and weather.

If you don’t see any auroras during the tour, you will be offered another ticket for a standard tour, free of charge, that can be used up to two years after the original tour date.
