Experience the magical dance of the Northern Lights on this special extended Northern Lights tour that allows you many more hours to observe one of Iceland’s most celebrated and mischievous visitors.
For this tour we have thrown in lots of treats to make sure you can enjoy the Aurora in tip top comfort. Experience our very best coaches with reclining seats, extra leg room for every seat, head and foot rests, seat back dining trays. We serve you complimentary coffee, hot chocolate and water and provide you with blankets to snuggle with and keep warm.
This extended Northern lights tour will give you plenty of time to view and photograph the Aurora and along the way our friendly guides will share some fun facts and stories with you. Over 25 years of operating Northern lights tours in Iceland have taught us how best to combine weather forecasts with experience to discover the best places to see the Northern lights.
Before every one of our tours we meet and decide on the best routes which means no two tours are the same. If the weather forecast predicts heavy clouds and we feel that chances of seeing the Northern lights are slim to none we cancel tours rather than sending our guests out on a wild goose chase.
A decision is taken daily at 6 pm whether the tour will be operated or not. All hotels and booking agents in Reykjavik are informed by email about our decision so please contact the front desk of your hotel, the tour desk or our sales office to find out whether we will be operating the tour.

Easy booking, good communication.
The Gray Line transportation for this tour went great, but even more spectacular was the bus driver and the tour coordinator. They were professional, friendly, and kept us informed along the way as well as providing historical and general information about the areas we passed along the way. Regarding the Northern Lights portion of the program, they went out of their way to assist passengers regarding in and out of the bus, camera and iphone settings assistance, etc.
Picked up at time stated excellent driver and tour rep
It was quick and easy! It also still felt personal even though it was online.
Easy Online Booking
We went in the secret lagoon n dinner tour w northern lights. Well the lagoon n dinner were fine but the lights was a joke. It appeared to b a not so good night but all we did was pull into a parking lot with lights to view them(there weren’t any) and then were told they r too far away going back to Reykjavík. This should only b a side bar of the trip not a mention within the trip. Thought it was very misleading. If u r going to c the northern lights book that separate. This one is not worth it
Simple and clear.
Booking process was ok, I found the whole pickup stop and time a little confusing. Easy enough to change the date though when the tour was cancelled the first night!
This was an excellent tour! Our chances of seeing the northern lights were on the far side of nil. Our guide and driver did not give up and to our amazement we had a super 6 minute show of the northern lights. The dinner was a bit salty and I would recommend less salt if possible. The secret lagoon was great too!
Our guide was great, the bus came on time, we saw the light and enjoyed a magical experience at the lagoon. highly recommend.
We had a great experience, the tour guide was very professional and relaxed Picked up and dropped back to hotel after a fantastic evening.
Pick up/drop off very punctual all staff were friendly & knowledgeable. Buses are clean and comfortable. *The bus driver we had was great and dealt with extreme weather conditions (white out) confidently whilst providing a smooth ride!!
Fabulous tour! Easy to book online - the tour was fun and both the tour guide and driver were very nice. The pace of the tour is good so you don’t feel too rushed. It was really nice to get away from the city and go far out to visit the secret lagoon. It’s a small place but very cosy and great thermal experience. The Icelandic dinner included was superb with a good selection of lamb, fish and delicious chocolate cake at the end. We were very lucky to see the lights as we drove out into a remote area where we had a clear view. Perfect experience.
Always on time : helpful staff quick responses to e mails & on line chats. Drivers & guides very knowledgable & good standard of English. Coaches & mini buses of a good standard
Easy booking process and delivered all that we wanted to experience. The Secret Lagoon and meal after the lagoon lived up to our expectations. Our guide and her husband added humour and lots of detail to the evening. We hope that their new grandchild and mother are both well. Highly recommend this trip the secret lagoon is not as commercialised as the Blue Lagoon giving our group of only 21 a unique experience. Thank you.
Our driver shared lots of fascinating information about the areas we were visiting. He also handled the challenging winter road conditions like a pro!
Superb trip. The guide named Swan was great and truly knew alot about the northern lights. The stop off for food was lovely, the coach was spacious, we weed given a free blanket and we saw the lights. Definitely would recommend and do again. Thank you.
The tour guide was very informative and the overall trip was pleasant.
Overall the tour was okay despite not really getting to see much of the Aurora Borealis but the reason for my rating was because the speaker in the shuttle never worked so we were never able to hear the tour guide let us know any info regarding the trip. She was basically talking to herself the entire 8 hours.
Tour was incredible. Tour guides were very knowledgeable in many areas and had good stories. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. We were lucky to see the northern lights multiple times from multiple locations.
It was easy to book and the information was straightforward.
Well planned out excursion. Thoroughly enjoyed the Secret Lagoon. Not as crowded or as commercialized as the Blue Lagoon. Dinner was beyond our expectations, a feast. I can’t recall our driver’s name, however, he was wonderful. He made quite a few stops in an attempt to catch the Northern Lights.
What an incredible trip! We booked the Northern Lights tour -Deluxe and it was amazing! Dinner at the new settlement village was a delightful treat before we began our hunt for the lights. The lights came out and danced all night, was worth the cold temperatures and long drive. A celebratory hot chocolate finished off the perfect night. Wish I could remember our guide and driver. So knowledgeable and kind. Thankyou for making our trip even more incredible! Couldn’t recommend more
really good tour, Jakob was a brilliant guide and was very insightful. The secret lagoon is lovely and so warm, and the meal after has stunning food and drink. The light hunt was fun and we managed to see the lights which was amazing! Really good experience.
I booked the secret lagoon/northern lights hunt. The secret lagoon was great but I had found out earlier that day all the northern lights ours where cancelled as the tour operators knew there was no chance of seeing them. As this tour costed me £120 I paid for 2 experience and was only given one. Knowing there was no chance of the lights at all this week we should not of been charged the whole cost or even let the tour continue, and like others you get to go again but this one you don’t get to do the lights again which I think is unfair
Great company all around! Helpful tour guides and offer the best of what Iceland has to offer!
Secret Lagoon & Northern Lights good tour combo. Very prompt pick up service from hotel,driver and guide well presented and experienced. Very good price for what you get and it's includes dinner buffet which is lovely and tasty. I would recommend
excellent tour and great driver highly recommended
I loved all the tours I booked with Grayline throughout my stay in Iceland. The Secret Lagoon and Northern Lights hunt was great. The driver/tour guide for the evening was very kind and did a wonderful job. We had ample time to enjoy the Secret Lagoon, which was beautiful. After the Lagoon we enjoyed a lovely dinner nearby that was included in the trip. The mushroom soup was otherworldly good. The people who worked at the restaurant were lovely as well. Our guide did all he could to try and see if we could see the Northern Lights but unfortunately it was too overcast that evening. It was overall an amazing evening. Highly recommend this tour.
It was so easy to book these tours on line, I booked 3 tours and all 3 where organised so professionals. Our guide to the golden circle on Tuesday 3rd April was just fantastic she was so helpful and told us all about the places we visited she also sang for us in the church. Well done
Very enjoyable tour. Thoroughly enjoyed the warm, relaxing time in the lagoon and dinner afterwards was tasty and beautifully presented.
Zeer behulpzame gids. Legt veel uit. Zeker aan te bevelen.
Always on time for pick up. All tour guides were friendly and very funny. The buses were comfortable and thats important as tours were long travel. Cant fault anything. 5* all the way
I used this company throughout my trip to Iceland. They were very reliable always on time. Just wished I'd booked the Blue Lagoon before I left home as it sold out. If you know your hotel location its very straightforward.
Comfortable bus and very informative and entertaining tour guide and the hot soup at the restaurant food stop was amazing but after visiting 6 different spots no sign of the lights as i think the overcast weather spoilt the chances. But would definitely use them again as we also done the golden circle tour and it was great.
Quick and easy booking experience.
Everything, from the moment they greeted me to the end. Such lovely guys. Very kind and patient and informative.
Simple but had to set again the pick up location.
Excellent staff and amazing service despite being stuck on a 4.5 hour drive due to road closures. Was quite the trip!
Tour guide TORIS was knowledgeable. Good to have the hot soup and hot chocolate drink.
We had booked the Northern Lights Deluxe tour, airport transfers and the Golden Circle Classic with Grayline. Unfortunately our tour for the northern lights didn't go ahead due to the weather however arranging re-bookings and refunds was seamless and communications throughout the whole process were good.
We booked three trips with Gray line Reykjavík, Whale watching, Norhen Lights and Golden Ciircle deluxe tours the only one we actually went on was the Golden Circle due to weather conditions for the other two. We had a great day tour guild for the trip was brilliant and kept and amused. The two other trip were cancelled with good warning allowing us to replan. Would use again.
DO NOT BOOK WITH GREYLINE!!Tour was cancelled due to not being able to see the lights. Pick up was a total balls up nearly missed our flight and then they told us it was us who had missed the bus when we had asked every bus if it was for us. Do not book with greyline if you are coming to Iceland use Reykjavík excursions which have the same prices but better customer service and more organised
Faultless and very professionally run organisation. Prompt pick ups always on time. Excellent excursions which I would totally recommend. Gray line made our Trip to Iceland a true experience which will never be forgotten.
Dori the guide was very funny and helpful, and could tell he loves his job.
Excellent tours!!! I joined the Whale Watching trip and the Northern Nights Deluxe. Both were superb and a success. We saw many dolphins, 2 Orcas (mom and baby), and 1 humpback whale. Then, later that night, a spectacular viewing of the Northern Lights.
Easy to use and prompt feedback received
I booked online and found the service quick and easy to use. Plus you get a discount if you book online.
Brilliant experience . Small group atmosphere was great . Our Guide Dori was excellent . He was very experienced and enthusiastic and this showed throughout the evening . Definitely recommend this even though more expensive than the basic Mystery Tour it’s worth every penny.
A well organised evening, with a variety of activity. The Secret Lagoon at night was great.
We didn’t get to see the Northern Lights on our first night, but did see them the nect night. Our guide was terrific and tried several different locations.
Excellent experience! Alias was awesome! He was patient and kind and determined for us to see the lights! He was a good historian and very friendly! Thank you!
was easy to book online before I travelled
Really easy from booking, pickup, changing buses at the terminal and drop off.
i book this tour with expectations that i will be able to relax at secret lagoon, have dinner and hunt for northern lights. We were lucky that northern lights showed up on our way to the lagoon, which was good. We had two stops to see NL, took some photos, the stops lasted for about 5 mins each. It was a very short stop since we need to hurry to secret lagoon because it closes at 9pm. I had the impression that yea ok we have enough time after secret lagoon and dinner for northern lights hunt. but after dinner what we did was actually just drive back to our hotels. There wasnt any hunting of some sort. Northern lights hunting is simply driving to secret lagoon and back to your hotel. We could have stayed more to enjoy the northern lights during those two stops. i didnt think the guide really tried to hunt northern lights although the forecast that night was high. the secret lagoon and dinner exceeded my expectations
Booking was simple and easy to manage.
Excellent service nothing to complain and car new and clean
very easy to navigate and instant details
Easy web site to navigate and filter on tours for where you want to go. All confirmations emailed quickly.
Easy and fast customer service
De très bon guide et de beaux endroits visité ! Service de qualité !
Extremely easy to book in a few seconds
The tour was great! Tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Secret lagoon was wonderful, the food was delicious (mostly meat, but I had enough as a vegetarian to eat too between different salads, breads, and a soup), the hosts at the guest house/restaurant were very kind, knowledgeable, and accommodating, and we had a prime spot to viewing a prime night of the Northern Lights! Well worth the experience. My only complaint was the the cost was a little much, however, you'll find that most tours in Iceland are.
très belle excursion au secret lagoon. endroit agréable, pas trop de monde. Soirée sympa et ambiance extra. Vu beaucoup d'aurores boréales. Dîner local très bien resto chouette
They were on time and friendly!
Wonderful customer service, due to weather our tour was cancelled and they gave us timely notice and biked us on the net nights tour.
Really easy to book online
Service was good not perfect
Great experience. Great customer services. All around, a super trip and company.
Easy to book, tour easy to find, no hidden pricing, descriptions include all details needed
Good service and quick response to my questions.
Ha sido una experiencia maravillosa. Hace mucho tiempo que teníamos planeado ir a Islandia para poder ver las Northern Lights y por fin hoy hemos podido. Los guías paraban cada vez que veían las luces, incluso ya volviendo ya a Reykjavik. Hemos cenado una sopa buenísima en un restaurante cercano a la primera parada y más tarde nos han ofrecido chocolate caliente mientras mirábamos las últimas auroras boreales (de verdad lo hemos agradecido mucho). El autocar tenía enchufes para cargar los móbiles y los asientos eran muy cómodos. Una gran experiencia. Muchas gracias!
