Experience the Northern Lights: Unlimited Chances Until you See them! A Visit to Reykjavík's Aurora Centre Included!

See the majestic Northern Lights dancing across the sky. If the skies are shy, try again free of charge as many times as you need until you see them! Learn about the phenomenon by visiting the Aurora Centre - Northern Lights Exhibition in Reykjavík; admission is included in this tour!

Catching a glimpse of the northern lights is a once-in-lifetime, bucket-list experience for many. In Iceland, you have the best chance of seeing the night lights when it’s dark outside, in areas with no cloud cover, and when solar activity is high. 

While some tourists try to view the northern lights on their own, choosing a guided tour increases the chances of seeing them in Iceland. Instead of relying on luck, a team of experts reviews the weather conditions, monitors the aurora forecast, and finds the best locations to spot auroras. That knowledge and experience really pay off!

If your tour date is before the 15th of April, this experience includes admission to the Aurora Reykjavík Northern Lights Centre, which can be used on the day of your tour. Here, you can immerse yourself in an interactive exhibition, a captivating movie theatre, and a Virtual Reality Aurora experience.

Please be advised that the operation of this tour is dependent on solar activity, cloud cover, and weather conditions.

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