Pingdom Check

Each night, weather and aurora forecasts are thoroughly studied with the aim of finding the best location to see the Northern Lights in the Icelandic countryside. 

This unique offering helps you enjoy the Northern Lights with a smaller group size, 16-19 passengers maximum, providing better viewing, more quality time with your fellow travellers, and an overall more intimate setting for enjoying one of Mother Nature’s most incredible displays.

The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are caused by collisions between particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole, and NASA scientists have predicted the best possible conditions for seeing them is in the current decade. In Iceland, they’re visible during the winter months, from late August to April, and appear in many different forms and colors with light green and pink being the most commonly seen.
