Northern Lights On Arrival

Starting from: Keflavik International Airport
Season: 1st Oct-31st Mar
Duration: 3 hours

Most Iceland winter travellers dream of seeing the mesmerising Northern Lights during their stay. However volatile Aurora activity & the changing weather changes means that sometimes the Northern Lights are not visible for many consecutive nights. Therefore on a short winter visit to Iceland it's important to make the most of your chances.

If you're arriving in Iceland on an evening flight from 1st October - 31st March and staying the first night in Reykjavík then a Northern Lights hunt with a transfer to your accommodation is the perfect combination for you. The volcanic landscape of the Reykjanes peninsula offers a great setting and many exciting de-tours for a Northern Lights hunt.

Send us information about your flight number and arrival time, and we'll arrange a magical start to your Iceland trip!

We'll pick you up from the arrivals area at Keflavik airport.

Your guide will take you on a Northern Lights hunt somewhere on the Reykjanes peninsula. The exact location depends on the night's Aurora forecast, cloud cover and weather conditions.

After the tour, you will be dropped off at your Reykjavik accommodation.


- Private guided northern lights tour
- English speaking driver-guide
- Pickup at Keflavík international airport and dropoff at your Reykjavík accommodation (contact us for a price with dropoff outside Reykjavík)

If the conditions are not favourable for a Northern Lights hunt then we will inform you on arrival and offer you to choose from an exciting late evening drive around the Reykjanes peninsula en route to Reykjavik, or a direct transfer to Reykjavik at half price (we'll refund 50% to your card if you select the direct transfer). Direct transfer to central Reykjavík takes around 60 minutes.

Since the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, viewings are never guaranteed. We can therefore not offer a refund if Northern Lights are not sighted during a full 2-3 hour Northern Lights hunt.

To bring:

- Multi-layered warm clothing appropriate for the weather (base non-cotton layer, fleece or wool mid-layer, wind/waterproof jacket and pants)
- Hiking boots
- Cap and gloves
- Don't forget your camera!
