Pick up at your hotel.
Minibus tour out of Reykjavík.
1 free attempt if you do not see them in the first try.
Bad weather ..hmm
This is very convenient since it’s operated in small groups, and we give you one extra shot, in case we see nothing on the first attempt. But of course we only go out if there’re reasons to believe that we might see the auroras.
It will be nice if your trip to Iceland is not too brief, so that you can make use of the bonus attempts if needed. The northern lights are a truly beautiful natural phenomenon, and we really want you to see it and enjoy it . But just so that you manage your expectations correctly, don’t aim for the auroras as your main goal when visiting Iceland. Our nature is genuinely awe-inspiring, with or without the northern lights!
We will email you in the afternoon to let you know if we are going out or not.
If we cancel the tour: you can email us and reschedule for tomorrow.
If the tour is operated but we do not see the lights: then we offer you ONE extra attempt for free, in our minibus.
We need to know a.s.a.p. if you will take that extra attempt or not (so that we can organize vehicles & guides).
We only run the tour when we have rather clear skies and the aurora forecast is promising.
We monitor the weather and Northern Lights forecast using Icelandic Met Office, belgingur.is and the Geophysical Institute.
The cost is only refunded when the tour cannot be operated, even once.
There’s no guarantee of actually seeing the Northern Lights.
