Come along on this fantastic Northern Lights private tour where you’ll join top photographers in capturing the dancing Aurora Borealis over Iceland’s epic landscapes.

You’ll be picked up at your hotel in Reykjavík in the evening by an award-winning photo guide in a 4x4 vehicle 

The Northern Lights can best be seen in darkness, so you’ll drive away from the bright city lights and be taken into the dark countryside. Once you are at the perfect spot to see the lights, your guide will help you set up your camera to best capture the green lights and the stunning surrounding nature.

The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon that only appears in the wintertime. Shooting them can be very tricky but your professional guide will help you with the right camera setting so you can bring home with you incredible images of these bright green, pink, or white lights dancing above the evening sky.

Make sure you’ll dress warmly because you will be spending some time shooting the lights in the cold Icelandic winter. 

After you’ve got some beautiful shots of the Northern Lights swirling around in the sky, it is time to hop back up on the 4x4 and head to Reykjavík with equipped with fantastic photos to fill your portfolio.

Good to know:

Please remember that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon. Aurora strength depends on solar activity in the days prior to the tour and the Icelandic weather is constantly changing, with cloud cover affecting our view of the sky. With that in mind, we read into 3 different weather reports in the days before the tour and decide on locations based on these predictions. That is why we cannot guarantee that we will catch the lights, but with us, you will maximize your chances and be in the right spot to photograph them when they show up.

We offer a second try if we are unable to catch the lights on the first night (valid for up to 2 years from tour date)

We will contact you the day before the first possible tour date (or in some cases after 6 pm on the first possible tour date) to let you know if the tour is on or not.
