There is a huge variety of Northern Lights tours available from Reykjavik. Here you can find a couple of tours I have picked out as tours that I can recommend.
These are my own personal tours. Operated by demand I will do my best to guarantee that you will see the aurora.
Aurora Sightings can not always be guaranteed, so why not mix it up with glacier hike, lobster dinner or other fun activities?
The cheapest way to get on an aurora tour is to go on a bus tour. Guaranteed departures when aurora sightings are likely.
I have years of experience photographing the aurora, and you can book your aurora photography adventure with me here.
