Private Northern Lights Exploration tour gives you a unique opportunity to enjoy the spectacle of the Northern Lights on your own terms and gives you direct access to our expert guide.
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.
We pick you up at your accommodation in Akureyri and drive out to the countryside away from electric glow and city sounds. The tour is a private excursion where you control the time spent on each location, in collaboration with your guide.
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.
Our goal in not only to find the right sights for best photograph but also to take our time to enjoy this fragile single moment that will never come again but you might remember for the rest of your life.
We charge a 20% deposit on our website for securing a seat on our tours. The remainder of the cost (80%) is then charged upon arrival. You can pay with cash or card upon arrival. We accept all major cards and currencies. The deposit is non refundable, but can be forwarded to a new booking (either a new tour or a new date of departure). The reason we do not refund the deposit is that costs for the booking have already been created, we have credit card fees, online advertising costs and service desk employees.← Frequently Asked Questions
