BUS DELUXE NORHTERN LIGHTS TOUR
Season: Daily from August 25th - April 15th. Duration: 4 hours
The Northern Lights (or aurora borealis) 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 solar-winds 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.
Please note that this tour will only operate on evenings when northern lights activity is likely. Remember, however, that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and viewing them cannot be guaranteed. If by chance there are no Northern Lights to be seen during your tour, we invite you to rebook on a regular Northern Lights tour at no extra charge.
The Aurora Borealis, known commonly as the Northern Lights, is a naturally occurring light display that is commonly seen in high latitude locations.
These ethereal lights are formed when solar winds agitate the magnetic field of the earth, Ionising the particles and causing them to give off light which we see in the form of the wispy bands of colour across the night sky.
The auroras can form in a variety of colours depending on the altitude of the particles when they become ionised.
Our evening tour will begin with our fast and efficient pick up service. We will come to pick you up you from either, one of the hotels in the centre of Reykjavik or from one of the many pick up spots dotted across the city. Once we have all of our guests our hunt for the Aurora borealis will begin!
You will be traveling in style in a specially modified vehicle that makes the northern lights viewing feel like you are being pampered. You will travel in either our customised Setra TopClass S 516 HDH or in a gorgeous Deluxe Mercedes car or sprinter. The kind of vehicle we use will be tailor chosen to fit the group size of the tour that evening to ensure maximum comfort.
The light pollution from the city of Reykjavik can often be quite detrimental to good viewings of the northern lights. To overcome this problem we will whisk you away into the beautiful Icelandic countryside .
You will be joined by an experienced northern lights guide who will have plenty of information to share with you both about the light themselves as well as some insight into Icelandic culture. They will also have spent the hours prior to the tour scanning over various weather maps looking for an ideal spot to head to for your viewing.
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 thinks will have the best chances then will you 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.
