We go in small groups, no more than 19 passengers per minibus and our guests get enough time to enjoy the show. The Northern Lights Tour is a hunting experience. To go into the dark, frozen winter night and observe an unbelievable display of color, light, and texture, is like waking up in a fairy-tale, full of mystery and magic. The Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis, are a natural phenomenon visible in the Northern Hemisphere. A unique display of light caused by a particle collision in the magnetic field of the polar cap.
We serve Kleina (Icelandic condiment) and hot chocolate when out in the cold night.
