The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are caused by collisions between particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. In Iceland they are visible during the winter months and appear in many different forms and colours, with light green and pink being the most common.
The Northern Lights team studies thoroughly the weather and aurora forecast in order to find the best location each night to spot the lights. While the lights can often be seen from the city, they are never as clear or magnificent when polluted by the city lights. The northern lights are an unforgettable sight to witness and should be enjoyed in the best possible conditions.
Getting a warm ride to the best possible location for sightings is well worth it. In this tour you will be heading out in a small group but seated in a bigger bus with extra legroom and adjustable backrests. This gives the tour more flexibility and you will be able to have your needs and interests catered for, as you travel in comfort and with peace of mind.
You also get to have more time with your expert guide who will be able to assist you with photography or answer any questions you may have. Keep in mind that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed.
