What to expect

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Heidmork Nature Reserve, Heidmerkurvegur Road, Reykjavik 110 Iceland

PLEASE NOTE: Exact location is subject to cloud cover and northern lights activity on a given night!

Join David The Guide´s 16 people maximum tour, You will be picked up from either your hotel, guesthouse or bus stop starting 30 minutes before departure time (Please allow a thirty-minute window for everyone to be picked up)

Our journey will take us outside of the city limits away from any light pollution as the Northern Lights are harder to see from Reykjavík. To which location it is hard to say, it will depend on the cloud coverage and activity in the evening. We try to keep it as short a drive as possible and we might stop at several locations as the lights can be quite elusive and often it will be a waiting game for this beautiful phenomenon, which might be perfect while your guide sets up his camera for the free photoshoot of your group.

please send an email to the address given below to claim your free Aurora photos after the tour has concluded - include a description of your clothing.

On this journey we are going to offer you Mayan jungle cacao – 100% chocolate hand shipped from the Mayan jungle and to stargaze under the winter sky with us as we tempt the Northern Lights. (Anyone with a heart condition or taking strong medication should avoid cacao)

But don´t worry we also have regular hot chocolate on this journey and we leave the choice to you. Everyone is welcome! you must let us know if you wish to try the Mayan Jungle Cacao!

A little note on the Northern Lights, they are fickle and elusive. They are very common in Iceland but alas cannot be promised by anyone so in order to make sure that you get another chance to see them we will take you a second time if your first time out turned out to be only stargazing and cacao. This re-use ticket is valid for two years after purchase.
If the tour is canceled and you are not able to make a reschedule before you leave we will refund fully!

All of our trips are carbon neutralized at no extra cost to you!

This tour runs dependant on weather - we only go if there is a high possibility of sighting - every day we assess the situation and decide whether or not to run the tour.

We went for a night hunting for Northern Lights and our tour guide which was a lady was very accomodating and lovely however, the weather did not permit us to see any huge Northern lights but just a baby/fainted one.
