What To Expect

Spend an evening chasing the stunning Aurora Borealis across the countryside. The tour starts with a pick up from your hotel or accommodations at Reykjavik. From there, you'll drive towards the direction where the northern lights will be seen that night. The destinations differ from day to day as the tour is greatly affected by natural circumstances. You may be up for a wild hunt, chasing the Borealis all evening, or you might see it almost immediately! Not to worry, you'll be traveling with a team of skilled hunters who will make sure you have an enjoyable experience! In the rare event that you do not get to see the northern lights, you're welcome to join another northern lights tour free of charge!

    Our guide is very nice and accommodating.. failed to see the aurora on the first try.. but they let me join again, and again and again until aurora showed up..
  • Jie Hui 15 Jan 2019
    Although the day we booked we only get to see very weak northern light due to weather condition but the guide was responsible enough to try his best to keep changing places for a hope for better lights
  • Kylie 9 Jan 2019
    The tour has been cancelled for three times. We have sent an email to the company to ask for refund, while replied us and told us to find Klook but still got no reply from Klook regarding our refund till now.

    We didn’t get to truly experience the Northern Lights due to rainy and cloudy night despite the tour bus moves around to get a better view. The tour guide was very entertaining and feels like hearing a podcast when he provides the information throughout the night. We got served with hot choco and donuts but it was windy so a good layered clothings are a must. Overall it was still a refreshing experience despite only able to see a glimpse of green glow or tint using only a smartphone and apps. A proper camera with manual settings and tripod is highly recommended if you’re to capture better image which ia something we’d seriously considered if we’re hunting for the Northern Lights in the future.

    Nice Location. No Issue Fast and Easy Recognise by the Counter Officer.

    Absolutely breath taking to see the lights dancing around the sky, after a cloudy week we didn’t think we’d get the chance to catch them but thanks to our fantastic tour guide Rosie ( can’t spell her Icelandic name) we waited at a spot in the national park, as other tours gave up and moved away, we got to witness this ( see picture that doesn’t even come close to how out of this world it looked, below)

    Tour guide was very kind to provide hot drinks outside the bus in the cold night and keep an eye of the lights activities for the participants wishing to stay in the bus. Tour guide also provided side information about northern lights science and Iceland legends that made our experience complete.

    Our tour has been cancelled due to the bad weather.. However we had requested for a refund. The reply from Klook was quick and we hope we will get the refund very soon
  • GUAN WEI 6 Dec 2018
    The trip was cancelled and they immediately notified us on whetehr we want to cancel or postpone to next date. I was impressed with the service of chiara and her team whom helped me a lot as the cancellation resulted in a change of plan so i have to verify a lot of information and i got the reply back quite instantly. In addition, there is a free entrance to the aurora museum, it was good and is a must go if you are there. There is a selfie booth with aurora, how does aurora form and a theatre to let you relish the northern light. On the make up trip, the forecast was exceptionally good but we didn't get to see it. On the way back, we caught a small grimpse of it, not sure if the ticket will still be counted for a valid in future use. I was disappointed because the other reviews sounded very good like with tour guide helping you to take photo but my tour guide didnt mention anything. There was also free hot chocolate and pastry. The question i have is how long should we spent camping for the light , as the tour guide saw that most of us head back towards the bus so he decided to call it a day.
