Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. You can take your kids on the tour but this is an evening tour. We won't be back at your hotel until late. Please make sure your children will be warm during the Icelandic winter night. The timing of this tour needs to be flexible because we won't go unless the weather is OK and we can find a clear sky or at least windows on the sky. If we cannot go on the booked night because of these reasons we will use the first chance to go. I will let you know before 6pm whether we go on the booked night.

Friendly: Yes.
You must be able to get in and out of a car. You need to be warmly dressed. The winter nights can be cold in Iceland. Please le me know beforehand if you are handicapped or have some special needs.

Let's go hunting for the aurora in Iceland


Let's go hunting for the northern lights where we drive to a nice place to watch the winter sky and enjoy the lights when and if they appear on the sky. The guide will bring hot drink to warm you up while waiting for the lights on the sky.
Please observe that this is a hunting tour. Mother Nature is in control, there is no guarantee of seeing the lights. The guide does not operate the tour unless she believes there is a good chance of seeing the lights. It might be wise to book the tour your first night in Iceland, the tour is postponed if conditions are unfavorable but if you are coming from the US that day is a very long day for you.
Please dress warm. If you like I can bring my camera to take photos of you beneath the northern lights and send to you as souvenir.
I create a customized tour for you in case you have any special requests, e. g. joining a spa to watch the lights, or if you are more than 4 persons, or need a larger vehicle for up to 70 persons.

Itinerary

Pick-up at 8pm. We drive out of town to a place where we wait for the northern lights to appear on the sky. The drive out of town can take up to one hour. We will be watching the sky but if they don't appear on the sky we will start approaching town again at around 11pm. If the lights appear on the sky on the way back the guide will try to stop the car so we can enjoy the show. Please check the forecast: http://www. gi. alaska. edu/AuroraForecast/Europe

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Pick-up at your hotel or close to it depending on where you stay in centre of Reykjavik, Iceland.

End location: Drop-off close to your hotel in Reykjavik centre, Iceland.

Duration: 3 hours

The duration is usually 3 hours but can last up to 4 hours depending on the sky. The aurora forecast, the weather and the northern lights affect the tour. We might not go if the weather is bad or the likelihood to see the northern lights is minimal.

Transportation

The vehicle is a convenient Ford E 350 Van 2012.

What’s Included

Other: Transportation (Ford Econoline van E350, 4x4, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Hybrid, 4x4), guidance, fuel, 11% VAT, free wifi in the van and a hot drink during the tour.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

1000 ISK - You just need some pocket money in case you want to buy something warm to drink or eat. You also need ISK 200 in coins for WC in Iceland.

What’s Extra

Other: Your own drinks and food are not included in the price. Entrance fee to a spa is not included. If you want to go to the Blue Lagoon then that needs to be organized in a good advance.

Restrictions

If you need to take your wheelchair or other special equipment with you then I might need to rent a special vehicle. Please let me know about this at the beginning of our communications.
