Hop on board and go hunting for the spectacular Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). This 3-hour Northern Lights minibus tour from Reykjavik is perfect for those travelling in Iceland in the winter months (Mid September to Mid April) and want to see this celestial display of the Northern Lights for themselves.

You’ll be picked up in Reykjavík from your hotel or nearest bus tourist bus stop to your accommodation in the evening in a small and cosy minibus. Where you go depends on the weather, as you need both darkness and a clear sky to witness this rare natural phenomenon. Your expert guide will drive you away from the city lights and into the countryside darkness, to a secluded location in the unspoilt Icelandic nature.

The minibus can reach places that the bigger buses cannot, making your experience both intimate and unique. You’ll travel past mountains and fields and get an incredible nighttime view of the country as your driver looks for signs of the Auroras. When they find the perfect spot, you can exit the vehicle to see the grandeur of the lights with your naked eye.

The Northern Lights are only visible in the northernmost countries and only during the wintertime, so dress warmly as you will be standing in the middle of the Icelandic countryside in the dead of winter to see the dancing Northern Lights. This wonderful light effect, known as the Aurora Borealis is caused by particles from solar winds disturbing the Earth’s magnetosphere. The lights appear green but can be pink, red or white, depending on their strength and the atmospheric conditions.

Remember that nature can be very unpredictable and the Northern Lights are famously fickle, so don’t miss your opportunity to witness nature at its finest. Book now for your best chance to see the unique and ever-changing Northern Lights.
