For many, seeing the luminous and magical northern lights is what draws people to visit during Iceland's winter. This special tour is guided by a specially trained northern lights guide who is highly knowledgeable and helpful, and will even give you tips on how to take photos of the show. Camera tripods are offered for use on the tour, free of charge (an absolute must for northern lights photos).

If the Aurora Borealis is not on display, Iceland also offers some of the best conditions for seeing stars with the purity of the air and the minimal level of light pollution in this sparsely populated land. On this tour, every guide brings along an astronomical binoculars for you to try out and will assist you in finding the most-known constellations and stars, and answer any questions you might have. Do you for example know where Jupiter is?

You'll experience all this from the comfort of a new fleet of Mercedes-Benz coaches where each seat is equipped with a USB power outlet and a touch screen tablet complete with a unique "In Bus Audio Guide" available in 10 languages (Chinese, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish). The tablets can also be used to surf the web, watch videos and more. Last but not least, you'll enjoy access to free on-board Wi-Fi!

IMPORTANT

Be sure to keep in mind that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings, therefore, cannot be guaranteed, including due to inclement weather conditions. Refunds or reductions in price are not granted if they are not seen the evening of your northern lights hunt. Please remember to dress for cold weather by wearing warm, layered clothing, including rain and wind-proof outerwear to shield yourself from the elements.
