Purchase is convenient and so is transportation.

This tour was terrible and felt like a major tourist trap. We were picked up from our hotel by a small van and immediately transferred to the bus station where about 5 giant tour buses were waiting to take people out to see the lights in an area away from the light pollution. All 5 buses drove to a little hotel were we spent 3 hours just sitting around. The hotel sold overpriced waffles, coffee, and tea while guests waiting inside for the clouds to clear. Seriously, this part just felt like a scam to get even more money from tourists. And then around 11pm supposedly the clouds cleared up a bit, but there were so many lights on from the hotel and security lights above the garages that we couldn't see a thing. And then there were so many tourists outside trying to take pictures with the flash which made it even harder to see. The tour guide was terrible too. We are allowed to go on the tour again if we didn't see the lights, but honestly even though the next night was supposed to be better I wasn't going to waste any more time with this company. SERIOUSLY DO NOT BOOK THE NORTHERN LIGHTS TOUR THROUGH THIS COMPANY!!

Great organisation!!!!!!!!


What will I see?
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 colors 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 increasing 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!
