Available: September – March

On this Northern Lights Small Group Tour from Akureyri we focus on finding the perfect location to witness the magic of the Northern Lights and the dark arctic sky. We go in small groups, no more than 15 passengers per minibus and our guests get enough time to enjoy the show.

The Northern Lights Tour is a hunting experience. To go into the dark, frozen winter night and observe an unbelievable display of color, light, and texture, is like waking up in a fairy-tale, full of mystery and magic.

We begin our Northern Lights hunt with a drive out to the countryside or up to the mountains, away from electric glow and city sounds. You will be able to enjoy the beautiful night sky at the best possible situation, of course depending on the weather.

The Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis, are a natural phenomenon visible in the Northern Hemisphere. A unique display of light caused by a particle collision in the magnetic field of the polar cap.

Our goal in not only to find the right sights for a great view but also to take our time to enjoy this fragile single moment that will never come again but you might remember for the rest of your life.
