Private Northern Lights Photo Tour
Gather your family and friends for this fantastic Northern Lights private tour, during which you'll join one of our expert photography guides to capture the dancing Aurora Borealis over Iceland’s epic landscapes. This is the perfect opportunity for aspiring shutterbugs or simply those looking to hone their skills to take home fantastic pictures and memories from Iceland.
In the evening, your group will be picked up at your hotel in Reykjavík by your photo guide in a 4x4 vehicle. The Northern Lights can best be seen in darkness, so they'll drive you away from the bright city lights, taking you into the dark countryside. Once you are at the perfect spot to see the Aurora, your guide will help you set up your camera and teach you how to best capture the green lights as they dance over the stunning landscapes.
This tour takes place when the Northern Lights are visible in Iceland, which is during the seasons of autumn and winter. Make sure that you’ll dress warmly, as you will be spending your time standing outside in the elements.
After you’ve captured some beautiful images of the Northern Lights swirling around in the sky, it will be time to hop back onto the 4x4 and head to Reykjavík with memory cards full of fantastic photos to fill your landscape photography portfolio.
Capture the magic of the Northern Lights in the company of people you know with this fantastic small-group photo tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
Good to Know:

Usually at 8 pm but we will confirm the pickup time when we confirm the tour. If we don't have availability on your desired date, then please contact us and we will try and find you a spot on dates close to the initial one.

Rest assured that there will be a full refund for cancellation up to 30 days before your tour.
Northern Lights Second-Try Offer:
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 monitor 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 you are unable to catch the lights on the first night (valid for up to 2 years from the initial tour date). We will contact you the day before the first possible tour date (or in some cases, after 6pm on the first possible tour date) to let you know if the tour will continue as scheduled or not.
