Small Group Northern Lights Tour from Akureyri

Hunt for the Northern Lights when you are in Akureyri!

Leave the city’s bright lights behind and join us on an enchanting journey from Akureyri to witness the mesmerizing Northern Lights. This winter promises fantastic sightings, and the North of Iceland is one of the best places to experience them.

Our nightly destinations are carefully chosen for optimal sky clarity and the perfect conditions to behold this natural wonder.

Keep in mind that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and sightings are not guaranteed, even when the tour is in operation. We assess the conditions daily at around 6pm to ensure the best possible experience. Join us for a chance to witness this awe-inspiring spectacle.

Our Northern Lights tour denpends on weather and sky conditions, and we retain the flexibility to cancel if necessary. In the event that the tour proceeds but the Northern Lights remain elusive, we’re committed to providing you with a complimentary second tour opportunity, whether it be in a minibus or a jeep.

Should you book the Northern Lights tour and unfavorable conditions prevent us from conducting the tour during your visit, rest assured, you’ll receive a full refund. Your satisfaction is our priority.
