What to expect

Head out of Reykjavik for an exciting hunt for the spectacular northern lights. Join your expert guides who will bring you to the best places where you will have the highest chances to see the magical dancing lights. They will also tell you a bit about the lights, the science behind them and the myths around the aurora borealis. If the lights don't appear you can still admire a wonderful starry sky with the Milky Way, countless stars and the mysterious moon.

If the chances to see the northern lights are really low you will still depart and enjoy plan B instead. You get to visit Whales of Iceland, an interesting and interactive exhibition where you can learn everything about Whales and the ocean life around Iceland. You will follow your guide around the museum and watch a beautiful video about the northern lights. Finish your plan B tour with a delicious drink.
