With very low light pollution, Iceland is the ideal place to observe the aurora borealis.
This spectacular phenomenon of dancing lights of charged particles from the sun, is visible on a clear night sky from September to April. All our trips are taking place in the absolute comfort of our Super Jeeps. Our guides will reveal all the secrets of this dazzling light show.

If Northern Lights are no seen during this tour, we will offer you to try once again for free.

The itinerary for this evening dedicated to observation is not established. Your guide, who has a perfect knowledge of the region, will lead you to remote areas, far away from Reykjavik's city lights. For the spectacle to be complete, the sky should also be clear, without clouds.

Here are some explanations to help you better understand this spectacular phenomenon:
Sun is causing the Polar Lights. During violent solar storms, a large amount of electrons and protons produced by the sun arrive in the Earth's atmosphere and light up the oxygen and nitrogen atoms, which suddenly become radiant and produce the magnificent veils of colorful light, known as the Polar Lights. We call them Polar on the reason that once arrived in the Earth's atmosphere, the particles are caught by the magnetic field, which forces them to move towards the North magnetic pole (Aurora Borealis) and the South magnetic pole (Aurora Australis).

The aurora has the shape of a thin oval elliptical strip centered on the North and South magnetic poles. The size of this shape depends on the solar activity: the more the Sun is "silent" and the solar wind calm, the less the oval shape is large; on the contrary, the more the solar wind strikes the earth's magnetic field with force and gusts, the more the aurora becomes greater and expands itself.
