Along with our private northern lights adventure tour, we also offer a wide range of day tours that are perfect for tourists of all ages.
What are the Northern Lights?
One of the most beautiful sights Reykjavik, Iceland has to offer, the northern lights are a complex display of light caused by collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun as they enter the Earth's atmosphere. These lights can only be seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres and can appear in many forms, from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains, or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow. While the northern lights can display many colours, such as shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet, pale green and pink are the most common colours seen by spectators.
Private Northern Lights Adventure Tour from Basecamp Iceland
At Basecamp Iceland, we know that the best way to view the northern lights is with a small group of friends in the middle of nowhere. Our private northern lights adventure tour works to emulate just that by taking small groups of 6-15 people on a northern lights expedition, away from the large crowds and city lights of Reykjavik. This 3-4-hour tour will take you to some of the best locations in Iceland for spotting the lights based on current measurements from a network of magnetometers and cloud coverage data.
While we cannot guarantee that there will be a successful sighting of the northern lights, we can guarantee that we will reserve you a free seat on the next available tour to continue the search and that all of our northern lights adventures make stepping away from overcrowded Reykjavik tour groups worth it.
