Tour details:

  • Availability: 1st of September - 15th of April
  • Duration: 3-5 hours (plus/minus depending on activity and weather).
  • Vehicles: Depending on size, we use 4 seat 4x4s or a minibus
  • Pickup: Depends on time of year (7-9,30pm) but usually at 8pm but we will confirm the pickup time when we confirm the tour which can be as late as 6pm the same day.
  • If we don´t have availability on your desired date, we will try and find you a spot on dates close to the initial one.
  • If that date does not fit into your schedule, we will refund your deposit (note that exchange rates change and it might not be the exact amount).
  • You need a tripod to photograph the aurora borealis? We have few extra ones.
  • We understand plans can change. So be assured that there will be a full refund for cancellation up to 30 days before your tour, deposits are non refundable 24 hours before tour date.
  • We use the WWW.AURORA-ALERTS.UK THE GLENDALE APP to forecast and monitor Aurora avtivity, other apps are more or less useless in our opinion.

The fine print:

  • The Icelandic weather is famous for being constantly changing with cloud cover affecting our view of the sky, stars and of course the Northern Lights. With that in mind, we do read into 3 different weather reports and decide on locations based on these predictions. 
    The Aurora activity is a phenomenon that can not be fully explained or understood so even though the forecast and most numbers are showing good possibility they might not show up if the Bz value is unfavorable during the night, but with us you will maximize your chances and be in the right spot to photograph them when they show up.
  • We do not offer refund but we offer a second try if we are unable to catch the lights on the first night (valid for up to 2 years from tour date).
  • Decision on going out or not will be made on the tour date, if possible around noon or at he latest around 6,30pm (18:30).
