Experience the mysterious and beautiful Northern Lights in Iceland.  

The Northern Lights Mistery Tour takes you out of Reykjavik city to the best places to see Northern Lights


When to see the Northern Lights
The season for Northern Lights in Iceland extends from the tail end of the summer from September through winter and well into April.

The best time to see Northern Lights is in the middle of winter when the weather is the coldest and when it is the darkest. Crisp cold evenings with skies clear enough to see stars is a prime indicator for auroral activity. 

Where to see the Northern Lights
Iceland lies under the „auroral oval“ which is an oval shaped region around the North Pole where Northern Lights are most frequently seen. In theory this means that Northern Lights are potentially visible from every place in Iceland.

In reality viewing conditions depend on many factors including geography, weather, the time of day and many more. Operating the Aurora for 25 years has tought us a thing or two about this elusive phenomenon and how to decide where each trip will lead us for the best possibilities to see the Northern Lights.
