Overview
The Northern Lights (or aurora) are perhaps one of the most popular things that tourists come to Iceland to visit. This stunning light display occurs high in the upper atmosphere of the earth as a result of solarwinds colliding with the magnetic field of our planet. Our Northern Lights team works hard throughout the day, checking on weather data in order to best predict a location where the lights should be clearly visible. The locations visited are different from day to day we head in the direction with the most chances of seeing Northern Lights. As this tour is weather dependent and sightings are not guaranteed you are welcome to join another Northern Lights tour free of charge.

    Stop: 2 hours
    Reykjavik has high level of light pollution, making it difficult for good viewings of the aurora. To overcome this issue we go out into the darker countryside to hunt for the lights. You will be joined by one of our experienced northern lights guide who will have loads of information to share with you. With a little bit of luck you will find an amazing spot to view the Aurora borealis. When you reach the location that your guide has selected as being the best point for a sighting then you will have some time to get out of the bus to see the lights. You will have plenty of time to take some photographs, If you are struggling then your guide should be able to help you setup your camera.

Bustravel Iceland are fantastic - we went on this tour last night and witnessed a fantastic Northern lights show (after rescheduling due to poor weather). We were lucky enough to have Siggi as our tour guide, who went above and beyond to show and tell us about the Northern

We went on Monday 17th February an although we saw a little something, our driver Siggi, told us that it wasn't great so we were able to go again and again until we saw them. We monitored the weather and activity for a few days and it didn't look promising until Thursday

Disappointed to be picked up from our bus stop by an extremely large bus (coach) rather than the minibus we'd booked at a premium price. We were 'entertained' by a guide who told ridiculous jokes and silly stories, rather than give information about the forthcoming trip.
