The dancing aurora borealis, or northern lights, are truly one of the unique wonders of the world. Iceland is a leading northern lights destination perfectly situated at the edge of the arctic circle, perfect for spotting the Northern Lights.
Our small group version of the Northern Lights Hunt offers a more personalised experience as there are fewer passengers (18 maximum) per expert guide.
When you buy a ticket for this tour, there is an extra special bonus, a free ticket to the Aurora Reykjavík Museum in downtown Reykjavík. You can visit the museum at any time during the day and we can pick you up for the tour at the museum if you wish. The Museum is a great introduction to the science and wonder of the northern lights. This multimedia exhibition offers interactive displays and an educational centre outlining how people and cultures around the world interact and think about the Northern lights. The Museum also has information on the best camera set-ups to make a lasting memory of your time in Iceland.

The Aurora Borealis, known commonly as the Northern Lights, is a naturally occuring light display, commonly seen in high latitude locations. These ethereal lights are formed when solar winds agitate the magnetic field of the earth, ionising the particles and causing them to give off light which we see in the form of the wispy bands of colour across the night sky. The aurora can form in a variety of colours depending on the altitude of the particles where they become ionised.
Reykjavik city has a high level of light pollution, making it difficult to get a good view of the aurora. Therefore, this tour takes place away from the city, in the darker countryside. Our in-house expert Northern Lights Team and your guide will make this a memorable experience, providing you with all the necessary information required to understand this phenomenon and will take you to the best possible location to view the Aurora Borealis.
Please note that there are only a certain number of tripods and cameras available, so bringing your own is always a great idea!
You can count on the Bustravel Iceland team doing everything within their power to make the night outstanding for you.
The Northern Lights are wild and unpredictable, so hunting the lights requires a lot of patience and warm weather appropriate clothing. We provide warming hot chocolate and quintessential Icelandic snacks to complement your evening tour. Please make sure that you are prepared to spend some time outside in the arctic winter, warm clothing is an absolute must. >center>
Although Iceland offers ideal conditions to view the northern lights,they can never be guaranteed. If you are unfortunate not to get a sighting on our tour, we offer a free rescheduling to another evening. Details of how to rebook in case of no lights will be supplied by the guide. The offer for rebooking is valid for three years from the date of your first tour departure. At the end of the night, we'll bring you back to Reykjavik and you will be dropped off at your preferred location. Please note that the duration of the tour is normally 3-4 hours but can vary in length depending on weather conditions on the evening.
