What to expect

For many, seeing the Northern Lights is the reason to travel to the Northern island in winter. They are mesmerizing, and a sight that will not be forgotten.

It is simple, nothing says “Icelandic Winter” like the idea of hunting for the Aurora Borealis. Created by solar storms originating from the sun, the Northern Lights need clear winter skies to be seen.

Step on board the bus, equipped with WiFi connected computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets, you can watch, listen and read expertly written and recorded material about the northern lights and the stars in the Arctic skies. Available with a choice of 10 languages. In each seat you will also find a USB Charger and your own star map.

The expert operational team has decades of experience analyzing weather patterns. They will review, each and every day, the cloud forecast and the northern lights forecast in detail. The local tour operator will decide on the night if there is a high success ratio to see the lights, otherwise, the tour will not continue.
