Join the crowd and get on the bus!
Bus tours are the easiest tours at the lowest price for your aurora hunt. You save yourself the time spent on finding a route, finding a parking and so on. There are numerous operators offering tours that are likely to find the aurora, but please note that it might get crowded. There are two operators I can recommend for this kind of tours:
Reykjavik Excursions – the budget tour
A reliable operator that puts a lot of work into predicting aurora activity, cloud cover and finding a nice spot for your aurora viewing pleasure.
Departures are variabavailable and pick up is 30 minutes before departure. Please read pick up instructions from the supplier carefully. Pick up from hotels, guesthouses and designated bus stops starts 30 minutes before the tour departure time stated on your voucher. If you are staying downtown Reykjavik, you need to make sure that you are at the pick up locations at least 30 minutes before departure or you might miss the pick up.Book with RE
Tours.is – by minibus
Another option for these bus tours is going on a slightly smaller bus, with fewer people. It is a bit more expensive, but for those seeking a bit more personal experience with a smaller group, this would be a great option. They also add a nice touch of hot chocolate and bisuits.Book a minibus tour
