For many, the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights is the reason for visiting Iceland in winter. This can easily be understood, since the Auroras are both wonderfully mysterious and magical. In addition to it excellent record for frequent sightings of the Northern Lights, Iceland offers some of the best conditions for seeing stars, as the air is pure and the light pollution is minimal in this sparsely populated land.

Come Search for the Northern Lights with us!

You are about to embark on a mission to see the Northern Lights, which are undoubtedly one of the most beautiful celestial displays found in nature. But up there, there are many other cosmic wonders waiting to be discovered. All you need to do is gaze skywards into the Arctic night canopy to explore the magic of countless stars and the moon itself.

The tour not only sets out to find the legendary Northern Lights, we also use the opportunity to pinpoint some of the stars & constellations in the sky.

Every guide brings along an astronomical binoculars for you to try out and will assist you in finding the most-known constellations and stars, and answer any questions you might have. Do you for example know where Jupiter is?

We depart from Reykjavík, where you will step on board our brand new bus fleet,  equipped with computer tablets in each seat. The tablets provide us with an “In Bus Audio Guide’’ on the tour, which is available in 10 languages. On board you will find a USB charger and free WiFi. We will also offer useful tips on how best to capture the Northern Lights on camera.

There are a few factors that determine whether or not seeing the Aurora Borelis is possible, and we´re experts in reckoning our chances of seeing them. This means we have a high success rate, and we do not go out unless we feel the odds are in our favour.

All our northern lights tours are guided by one of our specially trained northern lights guides, they are both knowledgeable and helpful and will even give you tips on how to take photos of the show. We offer free use of camera tripods on all tours (a must to take northern lights photos).

To search for the Auroras you need to stand outside in the Icelandic winter and you need to dress very warmly. We are the only operator to offer extremely warm “Aurora Jackets” and ultra warm winter boots for rent on our tours.

"“These guys raise the bar in tourism services”"

A phenomenal tour group, tip top services! Being in the hospitality industry, one is always inclined to observe the "little extras that go a long way", the small details that set a company apart from the rest. Reykjavik Sightseeing went above and beyond my expectations. They run a fleet of exceptionally new, modern and comfortable buses which make longer tour travel an absolute dream.

"“Wow just wow”"

Went on our aurora tour our first night in Iceland. Got picked up on time from our hotel. What a night !!! Our tour guide was fantastic. Informative patient and enthusiastic for what he was doing. The buses all had tablets in the seat pocket but take your own earphones to listen in your own language. What a display !!!!!!! Best they had seen in a long time. The guide had binoculars telescopes and endless enthusiasm. Definately use them again 10/10.
