Small Group Northern Lights Tour
USD 81.88
Witness nature’s spectacular lightshow with an unforgettable small-group Northern Lights tour from Reykjavík. Follow your guide on a 3-hour evening tour and hunt down the best viewing spots, far from the crowds of the city. Along the way, learn all there is to know about the mysterious Aurora Borealis and keep your camera close to hand, as you never know when the Lights will make an appearance!
What to Expect
Begin your guided Northern Lights Hunt from Reykjavik with pick-up from your central hotel, then head out of the city to hunt down the best viewing points. Learn more about nature’s dazzling lightshow from your guide as you soak up the scenery of Iceland by night.

Stop at prime viewing points along the way and if you’re lucky, get chance to witness the spectacular Aurora Borealis and take some unforgettable photos. Best of all, enjoy an intimate, small-group experience, free from the crowds, and travel on-board a heated minibus (warm clothes still recommended).

Please note: the exact itinerary depends on the aurora forecast and sightings cannot be guaranteed.

STEER CLEAR OF 'TRIPS' - Wish I'd paid less and gone with Grayline

So disappointed in the excursions I booked with TRIPS. I paid extra money in order to have a more personal experience with a mini bus tour of Northern lights on 4th January in a comfortable bus rather than a big crowded coach. Following a couple...More
