Overview
Join this unique tour led by an Icelandic Professional Northern Lights Hunter. Departures guaranteed. Northern Lights guaranteed.* This tour is a first of it's kind in the world! You'll visit the newly opened Northern Lights Observatory where Northern Lights have been captured in large glass tubes for you to explore in a comfortable setting. The Observatory is located in the rugged lava fields of Reykjanes Geopark. Purposefully built away from light pollution it offers a Dark Park optimal for viewing the natural Northern Lights, weather allowing. If weather conditions are not optimal at the Dark Park the tour will continue on a hunt for the best location to view natural Northern Lights. *By carefully mixing gases and charging them with electrical energy, real Northern Lights have been made in 6 large glass tubes. The tubes are connected to real-time satellite data and simulate natural Northern Lights. *Simulated Northern Lights are guaranteed. We'll hunt for the natural lights.
