Location, Location, Location

Gray Line has been in the business of northern lights excursions for years, and our guides know the locations most likely to give you the best view of the spectacular lights.


Cozy Buses

While it is possible to see the northern lights in the skies over Reykjavík, your best bet at seeing them in their full splendor is to get as far from the light pollution of the city as possible. With such features as reclining seats, free Wi-Fi and air-suspension, Gray Line’s coaches will keep you warm and comfortable, no matter where the hunt for the lights may take you.

The northern lights can last for only a few minutes or hours so once you get a glimpse of them, you’ll want to get a photo to commemorate the occasion (and to confirm that you really did see them). Following the tips posted here, you are sure to get a good shot and don’t forget to bring these [top 5 gadgets and gear link] essentials along to get the most out of your tour.
