Social Distancing in Comfort

We all want to be safe on our travels. While Reykjavik Excursions has always been dedicated to the safety of our passengers, as well as our staff, the focus on safety has shifted in the past few months to social distancing and sanitation. Our new Small Group in a Bigger Bus tours offer more space for fewer people, meaning the tour is also more flexible to the group's needs and interests. These tours also use our brand-new coaches, with extra legroom and adjustable backrests, completing the experience in comfort. Enjoy your travels in comfort and with peace of mind.  

The Northern Lights in Iceland

The northern lights, also known as the aurora borealis, are caused by collisions between particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. In Iceland they are visible during the winter months, from late August to April, and appear in many different forms and colours although light green and pink are the most common. 

Why join a guided tour to see the northern lights? 

Our northern lights team studies thoroughly the weather and aurora forecast in order to find the best location each night to spot the lights. While the lights can often be seen from the city, they are never as clear or magnificent when polluted by the city lights. Getting a warm ride to the best possible site for sightings is well worth it. The northern lights are an unforgettable sight to witness and should be enjoyed in the best possible conditions.

Why join this tour?

This is a classic northern lights tour but in a smaller group. That means you get more time with your expert guide for assistance on photography and facts.

 If you don‘t see any northern lights during this tour, you are invited to try again and join our classic Northern Lights Tour (RE62), free of charge. Visit and log your booking number to choose a new date.
