Tour description

Escape the light pollution of the city and go with us outside Akureyri to see the amazing Northern lights. The Northern Lights viewings for this winter are looking very promising and there are few better places to see them than in the north of Iceland.

Where we head each night depends on where we think it's most likely to find clear sky and the best conditions to enjoy the lights.


The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon. Sightings cannot be guaranteed even if the tour is operated


We decide around 18:00 pm every day if the conditions are favorable to operate the tour. Please call us at +354 8448388 or send an email at info@startravel.is on the day you are booked to see if the tour is running that day


Pictures do not always reflect actual experience/sightings


The Northern Lights tour is dependent on the weather and sky conditions and we reserve the right to cancel at any time. If the evening tour goes ahead and the Northern Lights are not seen, we will offer the trip again for free next time we have a booking (the second tour could be in minibus or jeep).


If you book northern lights but conditions do not allow us to run the tour during your stay. You will receive a full refund.
