Hunt for the Northern Lights
Hunt for the Northern lights in one of the best locations on earth! Watch the glimmering lights move across the sky at the speed of light in green, blue and even red colors.
Please ask if there's more than 4 in your group. I can do tours for up to 70 persons when requested.
The Northern lights are a natural phenomenon about 100-200 km above ground. It is dark enough from mid September to mid April to see them. However, it is not possible to see them when it is cloudy or when the solar activity is low.
Depart Reykjavik on a hunt for the Northern lights. The lights are best seen away from the city lights and the route depends on current weather and road conditions. Available from mid-September to mid-April.

Estimated Local Cash Needed
3000 ISK Icelandic krona - This tour is quite short and it starts after dinnertime.
I assume you won't need to have food or drink during this short tour.
We may depending on the route stop at a convenience store for drinks or snacks. If you'd like to pick up a pizza for a late night snack around midnight then we can certainly order a pizza over the phone and pick it up on the way back to your hotel. A large pizza usually coasts around ISK 3000 or US$ 30.
