Step by Step

See one of the wonders of the sky on this Northern Lights bus tour in Reykjavik. An experienced guide will accompany you on this tour, which takes around four hours and groups of around 65 people, from Iceland's capital city to the Icelandic countryside. It also includes transfer to and from your hotel in Reykjavik.

The aurora borealis is one of the most famous atmospheric phenomena on the planet, with its characteristic green hue in the sky. Auroras occur when the solar wind presses against the magnetosphere and pushes charged particles - electrons - into the atmosphere at high speeds. They usually form in northern Europe, especially in Iceland.

For this reason, it has become a favourite destination for travellers who are fascinated by this phenomenon, which you can take a photograph of to remember.

The sighting will take place in the Icelandic countryside, where you will not be exposed to any light pollution. In the event that you are unlucky on the day of the tour and cannot see the aurora, it can be rescheduled for another day. You will travel to the area in a bus, which will have free WiFi on board.

While you gaze up at the sky waiting for or admiring the Northern Lights, you will be offered a hot chocolate to cool down the possibly cold temperatures there.
