Begin your guided Northern Lights Hunt from Reykjavik with pick-up from your central hotel, then head out of the city to hunt down the best viewing points. Learn more about nature’s dazzling lightshow from your guide as you soak up the scenery of Iceland by night.

Stop at prime viewing points along the way and if you’re lucky, get chance to witness the spectacular Aurora Borealis and take some unforgettable photos. Best of all, enjoy an intimate, small-group experience, free from the crowds, and travel on-board a heated minibus (warm clothes still recommended).

Please note: the exact itinerary depends on the aurora forecast and sightings cannot be guaranteed.
