Northern Lights in Iceland

During wintertime from September to early April, the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights can be seen in all parts of Iceland so long as the sky is clear and it is dark.  We offer different type of tours to Iceland to see the Northern Lights.  Some are guided group tours with 16 to 45 passengers, and some are private or almost private tours with only 2 to 6 passengers, often groups of family or friends traveling together. Some tours have a mix of activities during the day, like glacier walks, snow-shoeing or horse riding and some focus on the spectacular landscapes and natural phenomena of Iceland during the arctic winter. If the selection of tours below seems too difficult to choose from, you can call us or send us an inquiry, and we will explain the various options for you.

Our customers love us and so will you

Why Iceland?

Accessible via a short, five-hour flight from the east coast of the United States, Iceland is a lot closer than you might imagine

Glaciers

Despite its rather misleading name, only 11% of Iceland is covered by ice. That said, it is home to Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull, as well as 268 others.

Volcanoes

Volcanic eruptions in Iceland happen, on average, every five years. Although international media coverage surrounding the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption might lead one to believe otherwise, volcanic eruptions in Iceland tend to not have much impact on daily life.
