Went really smoothly. Great tour guide and bus driver. Tried different locations so we could see the lights.They found us the lights and were really informative and helpful. Would use Grayline again and highly recommend them.

What an adventure! The team put great effort into the trip. We saw the lights - though they were quite weak - eventually. Oliver was a great guide! The warm and cosy buses were very much appreciated on a freezing night! Thank you.

While the northern lights were not very visible to the naked eye it was very helpful to have downloaded the app for taking plictures as suggested by the driver in advance.. thank you!

The location for viewing the Northern Lights was not the best. The constant lighthouse flashing across our view made for viewing and photographing a bit disruptive. I would suggest you find a different location where there's no lighthouse in your view.

Tour Itinerary

This Northern Lights Tour takes you out of Reykjavik 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!
