    Northern Lights tours

    You should see Northern lights at least once in your life!

    Imagine standing out in the still Icelandic winter night, the frost biting your cheeks and your breath steaming up in the cold...

    ... the sky is clear, the air quiet and silence reigns. You look up to see the beautiful dance of the Northern lights across the winter sky - the glowing colours in a delicate, eerie and incredibly beautiful display.

    We prefer not to drain the magic of this phenomenon by explaning the physics of it, we'd rather leave that to your guide on your Northern lights tour.

    The native Inuits from Greenland believed the Northern lights were spirits in the sky, guiding souls to the afterlife.

    The native Inuits from Greenland believed the Northern lights, Aurora Borealis, to be spirits with torches, in search of the souls of those newly passed away, to lead them over the abyss they have to cross over to the land of brightness and plenty, where no pain nor disease existed and food was abundant.

    The Eskimos were able to call to Aurora and send messages to the dead through these spirits they called selamiut - "sky-dwellers" - those who live in the sky.

    On this tour there are also wonderful photo opportunities for those with an interest in photography. The pictures in the album on the right are taken on a tour by one of our Northern lights experts, Olgeir Andrésson. Special photography tours are available, get in touch with us for more information!

    The fleeting nature of the Northern lights explains the constant changing location for this tour. We basically follow the command of mother nature, wherever she tells us to head each night. If the skies are uncooperative you will get the chance to join us on a brighter night.
