Tour Details

Northern Lights & Stargazing in a small group
We pick you up and whisk you away from the city lights to where we predict the best sightings according to weather forecast. We always aim to get off the beaten path and away from the crowds to enjoy the Northern Lights in serenity. At our chosen spot, while waiting for the lights, we use our powerful stargazing telescope to explore crude details of the planets in our solar system, their moons and deep space phenomena light years away.

Your Chances of Seeing the Northern Lights
The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and displays can never be guaranteed. For a sighting we need three things to come together: solar storm, darkness and a clear sky. Overall, on any given night during dark hours in Iceland, your chances are about 50/50. We maximise this chance by going out when auroral activity and cloud cover forecasts are favourable. Our sighting rate is 90%.
