Northern Lights Tours

About Northern Lights in Iceland


Put on warm clothes and join us hunting for Northern Lights between the middle of September and the middle of April. If you are lucky to sight some of these spectacular lights, it will be a trip you will not forget during your life time. Escape the light pollution of the cities and enjoy the light show in a breathtaking scenery. The whole of Iceland is located underneath one of the so called Auroral Oval and hence sights of Northern Lights can be made regularly in the whole country. During the Northern Lights season 2014/2015 one can expect above average Northern Lights activity due to the fact that the solar cycle is close to its maximum, which causes intensive Northern Lights activity. So what are you waiting for, take your chance and experience an extraordinary, natural phenomenon.

Northern Lights Tours offers a variety of different tours to hunt Northern Lights. There are both one day tours and multiple day tours available. Northern Light Tours offers tours both from Akureyri and from Reykjavik. We offer you tours in small groups and the fact that our tours are operated using super jeeps makes it possible to go to places where buses cannot go. Our expert guides will provide you with all the information you need.

Please note that all of our Northern Lights tours are heavily dependent on weather and conditions, and we will evaluate the likelihood of seeing the lights every time we are planning a departure, giving you our estimation of whether we can reasonably expect to see the Aurora Borealis. The search for the lights in an adventure you undertake, and every customer must realize we can make no guarantees to see them. But we promise to do our very best.

About our selection of Northern Lights Tours:


Our classic Northern Lights Hunt® tour where you will search for the lights in an exclusive super jeep with only a handful of participants per guide and everything included, even a lava cave tour and freshly caught lobster in a local fishing village on Iceland South Shore. This famous tour is operated everyday from the 15th of October to the 15th of March.

We also offer a stripped down version of the Northern Lights Hunt®, the Northern Lights Explorer, on it we leave out the lave cave tour and lobster dinner. But this great tour still offers the intimacy, comfort and ability to get off the beaten track places on our hunt that a super jeep and expert northern lights guide will offer you.

We also offer an exclusive 2 day, in-depth northern lights adventure and highland tour. This is the Northern Lights Voyager and on it you will not only search for Northern Lights in the remote highland valley of the Thundergod, under the watchful eye of Eyjafjallajökull Volcano, but also go glacier hiking, lava caving and off-roading to a mountain hut far away from civilization.

If you are looking for a weekend adventure package we recommend the 3 day the Northern Lights Weekend tour which includes 3 adventure activities, search for the Northern Lights and 3 nights at a 3 star hotel!

Our Northern Lights tours in Akureyri are relatively new to our selection but offer a great way to see the lights on Northern Latitudes from the charming little town of Akureyri. Check out the Northern Lights Akureyri and Northern Lights Akureyri and Nature Baths.
