Northern Lights Quest - Private Tour


Drive out of the Reykjavik city lights in search of the elusive Northern Lights

The tour takes 4 hours during which we‘ll give ourselves completely to the hunt. On this evening tour we may be lucky enough to see them swirling and dancing across the sky endlessly changing colours, shape and size. Given clear skies and a little bit of luck, sightings can occur from autumn through to spring. Auroras seen near the magnetic pole may be high overhead, but from farther away, they illuminate the northern horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red, as if the sun were rising from an unusual direction. Discrete aurora often display magnetic field lines or curtain-like structures, and can change within seconds or glow unchanging for hours, most often in fluorescent green.

The Northern lights are a natural phenomenon and therefore we can't guarantee a sighting. If we think the chances of a sighting are slim on the day of departure, we will cancel the tour and offer you to change dates or receive a full refund. Please note that sightings cannot be guaranteed even if the tour is operated.
