Northern Light tour with hot Icelandic chocolate and cinnamon buns

The beauty about nature is you cannot control it. Instead, the nature can take total control over you. It will take you from one end of the planet to the other one. It can make you fall in love or it can make you hate it. It can make you breathless or it can make you mad.
This is the best game ever. This is why the Northern Lights are named after a Greek goddess ,,Aurora”. They are the most spectacular thing nature can create. Seeing this Greek goddess dance all around the sky takes all of your words away.

Tour Description

It often makes the mind wander to about a 1200 years ago, when Iceland´s settlers came to this island and stood under this fantastic spectacle and surely they wondered what Odin and Thor and Freyja were trying to tell them. Our guide will pick you and your group up at your accommodation and we will head out of town in search of these lights. We will head into darkness as the light pollution from human beings spoils the true effect and grandeur of these amazing communication relays from the Gods.

Hopefully we will see them. The conditions have to be right as we can´t see them unless it´s a clear night sky and few clouds to block the view. But the Aurora Borealis answer to no man. It´s a chase. If the lights appear they do, but they don´t seem to care what humans think about them. But you will get a cup of hot chocolate just like grandma used to make and delicious pastries from Bread and Co on the site. And hopefully you will get a message from one of the Gods.

Pick up starts from October to March at 20:00 and it takes about 30-40 minutes.
From mid of March and end of April the pick up is between 21:00 and 21:30.
From end of August to mid of October the pick up is between 21:00 and 21:30.
We pick up from hotels, guesthouses or bus stops in Reykjavik. See list of bus stops here.

What happens if I don´t see any lights?
If you will miss the Northern Lights, you can come again for free while you are staying in Iceland. If you can not make it, you can come back any time you want. Send us an e-mail at info@reykjavikout.is.
