Only because we didn't see them which isn't the fault of Grayline.on 17/03/2018 8.00 pm trip we had an unnecessary stop at a service station to get food but we weren't told in advance that we couldn't eat it on the coach.On 18/03/2018 9.00 pm trip we didn't have a stop & went straight to the site, much better.

Awful and inappropriate guide, didn't learn anything, didn't see the lights after multiple attempts


The Northern Lights Mystery Tour takes you out of the city lights in hope of seeing the Northern Lights.

Aurora Borealis, another name for the Northern Lights, are a natural phenomenon and therefore sighting is not guaranteed. We will drive you to the countryside, into complete darkness, in hope of seeing the skies glow.

What will I do?
When Northern Lights have been spotted, you will be able to go outside and see the fantastic shapes and colours in the dark sky. You will have plenty of time to take photos and truly enjoy the moment.

Why should I go?
Iceland is an ideal place to see the Northern Lights due to our location on the planet. We have operated Northern Lights tours for more than 10 years. Our staff is therefore very experienced and aware of the necessary factors that increase your chance of seeing the Northern Lights.

So if you have the opportunity to see and enjoy something so spectacular, well - we suggest you take it!
