IGT 107 - Northern Lights Tour from Reykjavik by Minibus

Northern Lights, a celestial wonder!


Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, are undoubtedly one of the most spectacular natural curiosities. They have never ceased to fascinate the people of the north; consequently stimulating abundant mythology and legends. Moreover, they have always captured the imagination of scientists who study them.

Named after the Roman goddess of dawn, collide with different atmospheric elements in the area around the North Pole.
Viewing these amazing dancing lights across the winter northern skies is an experience that attracts hundreds of visitors to Iceland, as the island is one the areas where the lights can be seen. It is located on the so-called Auroral Oval.

Please be advised that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and displays can never be guaranteed. They highly depend on weather conditions and the solar activity. The sky has to be clear and there has to be enough solar activity.
