Tour Description

Begin your night of northern lights exploration with our prompt and efficient pickup service in central Reykjavik. We conveniently collect passengers from designated hotels, tour bus stops throughout central Reykjavík, or our meeting point, based on your preference. Once all passengers are on board, we leave the glow of city lights behind and venture into the darkness of the Icelandic countryside.

Northern Lights Excursion Distinguished by its flexible approach, our tour does not adhere to a fixed itinerary or route. Typically staying within a 90-minute drive from Reykjavík, our guides prioritize locations with clear skies and minimum light pollution.
Prior to the evening, they diligently analyze aurora and cloud forecasts, allowing them to identify optimal spots for viewing the lights.

Throughout the journey, your knowledgeable guide will regale you with stories and insights about the northern lights and Iceland. Upon reaching a chosen location where the lights are likely to make an appearance, you'll have the chance to stretch your legs while awaiting the light show.

Given the unpredictable nature of the northern lights, patience is key during the wait. Your guide will provide complimentary hot chocolate and light refreshments to make this more enjoyable.

While we hope for a successful display at the initial location, our commitment remains unwavering if nature doesn't cooperate. Our Troll team pledges to go the extra mile to fulfill your aurora dreams, even if it means venturing to an alternative site.

In the Absence of Lights Despite our cloud and aurora forecasts and the expertise of our guides, the northern lights can be elusive. Their appearance is not guaranteed as a natural phenomenon, but it is more likely during the Northern Lights Season. If you don't witness the lights on your tour, fret not. You can join our tour again on another night at no extra cost. Unfortunately, refunds are not provided for tours without successful light sightings.

As the night concludes, we'll safely return you to central Reykjavik, dropping you off at the same location where you were initially collected.
