Private Northern Lights Tour

Imagine standing in the middle of nowhere watching Iceland’s natural phenomenon. It’s hard to describe the feeling – come and see it for yourself

4 hours

Starting at 145.000 ISK


It's hard to describe the feeling when you watch the Northern Lights dancing in the sky. It is definitely an experience of a lifetime.

What’s the process?

Once we are out of the city and away from light pollution our guide will find a good spot to jump out of the car and prepare cameras. We have cozy chairs + blankets on board to keep you warm while we wait for the lights.

To make it even more memorable, we’ll have

  • Hot chocolate
  • Typical Icelandic liquor (Brennivín) (only for adults over 20)
  • Icelandic “Kleina”

to enjoy while we wait.

Our guides can assist you with the camera setting in case you need help. If you don’t have a camera – don’t worry! Our guide will take professional photos and we’ll give you free access to all photos the next day.

In case of non-sightings: If we decide to run the tour, we truly believe there will be visible Northern Lights somewhere at some time during your tour. Our tour plan has been drafted based on a diligent assessment of available data and we will utilize updated information throughout the tour as needed. Our pledge is to make these decisions with our customer's interests in mind only, and we truly take it personally when we fail in this sense. Please note that the current weather and cloud conditions at your place of accommodation are no indicators of how the weather will be at our destination or at other times during the night. We believe this is a testament to our integrity to our customers. In the unfortunate event that we will be unsuccessful in finding visible Northern Lights, the following outlines your rights and steps needed to be taken by you in order to secure these rights:

  1. As a participant in a non-sightings Private Northern Lights tour, you are eligible for an unlimited number of re-runs in a small group tour until you have a successful tour with us.
  2. To book a free re-run tour, you must do so in writing by sending an email to It is not enough to ask your guide.
  3. Re-run requests obviously have to be serviced subject to availability. We recommend you state which days you are available (if more than one), so we can process your re-run request without delay if your first choice of the day is fully booked. I.e. book you on the second day of choice etc.
  4. Re-run bookings are serviced on a first-come, first-served basis.
  5. Your re-run tour will be with us and will therefore be subject to all the same protocols as your first one. We will go out only if we truly believe there will be visible Northern Lights.
  6. Under no circumstances will there be a refund, in full or partial, for a Non-sightings tour regardless of whether or not we could accommodate your request for a free re-run within the period of your stay.
