Tour Operator: Holiday Tours


Seeing the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) dancing on the Icelandic night sky is truly an experience that will last a lifetime.

This tour was created in order to increase your chances of seeing this natural phenomenon in the best possible way. 

Our guides are experts when it comes to the Northern Lights and we always make the decision based on the forecast before 18:00, if we are heading out during the evening or not. 

We focus on both quality and quantity, we never take more than 8 people on this tour and we always try the remote area without the big crowds. Onboard, we have cozy chairs and blankets to keep you warm, because the winter nights can be rather chilly. Furthermore, we are offering hot chocolate, the beloved local liquor (Brennivin), and the famous local "Kleina" pastries to make the experience even nicer.

Once the guide has confirmed the right spot, it is time for the hunt, get your cameras ready, and let the show begin. Do not worry, our knowledgeable staff can always assist you with your camera settings as well. In case you do not have a camera on you, your friendly tour expert will take some professional photos, to which you will have free access the next day.

In case of non-sightings: If we decide to run the tour, we truly believe there will be visible Northern Lights somewhere at some time during your tour. Our tour plan has been drafted based on a diligent assessment of available data and we will utilize updated information throughout the tour as needed. Our pledge is to make these decisions with our customer's interests in mind only, and we truly take it personally when we fail in this sense. Please note that the current weather and cloud conditions at your place of accommodation are no indicators of how the weather will be at our destination or at other times during the night. We believe this is a testament to our integrity to our customers. In the unfortunate event that we will be unsuccessful in finding visible Northern Lights, the following outlines your rights and steps needed to be taken by you in order to secure these rights:

  1. As a participant in a non-sightings Premium Northern Lights tour, you are eligible for an unlimited number of re-runs in a small group tour until you have a successful tour with us.
  2. To book a free re-run tour, you must do so in writing by sending an email to It is not enough to ask your guide.
  3. Re-run requests obviously have to be serviced subject to availability. We recommend you state which days you are available (if more than one), so we can process your re-run request without delay if your first choice of the day is fully booked. I.e. book you on the second day of choice etc.
  4. Re-run bookings are serviced on a first-come, first-served basis.
  5. Your re-run tour will be with us and will therefore be subject to all the same protocols as your first one. We will go out only if we truly believe there will be visible Northern Lights.
  6. Under no circumstances will there be a refund, in full or partial, for a Non-sightings tour regardless of whether or not we could accommodate your request for a free re-run within the period of your stay.
