Northern Lights Tour

The Northern Lights tour in Iceland takes you to see a spectacular natural phenomenon which happens during the winter months. The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. Northern Lights in Iceland are visible during the winter months, from late August to April.

The locations visited during the Northern Lights tour vary from day to day depending on weather conditions. Because this tour is weather dependent, sightings are not guaranteed. However, if you don‘t see any Northern Lights during this tour, you are welcome to join the tour again, free of charge.

Northern Lights Planetarium Show

Áróra, the first ever interactive Planetarium Film.A piece of art that brought together Iceland’s most notorious writers, musician, and photographers.

It’s a journey, through the unique landscape of Iceland, to observe Northern lights as you’ve never seen them.

Taking you across time and space, to understand the science behind the mystery, and the stories we believed for millenniums.

Way beyond the traditional planetarium experience, we’ll invite you to join the dance, and create your own Northern lights.
