Product Description

Northern Lights tour in Iceland 

  • The Northern Lights Tour is operated only on the days when the conditions are favourable, including weather, clouds and solar activity.  The best thing to do is sign up for a Northern Lights Tour at the beginning of your visit, which gives you more flexibility to reschedule in case conditions are not favorable on your preferred night.
  • We do appraise the situation daily and before we make a decision on whether we go or not we look at all the latest data and weather reports. We only go out when we think it is a good chance to see the lights and sometimes the weather or solar energy is just not favorable (on average we cancel about 40-60% of the time).

Price depends on the number of passengers you want to book:

  • 1-4 people – Price  99.000 ISK per trip (not per person)
  • 5-7 people – Price  109.000 ISK per trip (not per person)
  • 8+ people – contact us for a quote

“Fabulous travel agency!”

I was impressed with GTI before I even went to Iceland. I contacted them prior to my trip and they answered all my questions quickly. I booked three tours--hot golden circle, glacier lagoon, & northern lights. The guides were knowledgeable and the smaller group enhanced the experience. I highly recommend this company and would definitely use them again!

“Can’t go wrong with their Northern Lights tour!”

After researching a wide range of companies for Northern Lights tours I decided to go ahead with Gateway to Iceland due to their assurances if we didn't see anything on our first outing as well as the reviews I had read.

We were in luck driving down the carriageway when the snow suddenly stopped and clear skies emerged... looking out the window we could see flickers of the northern lights! We stopped at a safe place and got out to watch and take some photos. Our guide described this as about 4-5 on his scale of out 10. After 15 minutes or so we decided to drive a little further down to another location. On the way we saw the most magnificent lights we could have ever imagined. We were fortunate to get out and watch the lights on show for a further half hour. Our guide described this as a 9/10, and he'd only ever seen what he described as a 9.5.

We were hugely fortunate to go out on the best night to see the Northern Lights. Gateway to Iceland were brilliant in organising the tour and keeping you up to date on their website if the tour was going ahead. The guide explained his knowledge of the phenomenon whilst we were on our way to the location.

A great start to our holiday in Iceland and another unforgettable experience. If you need a tour for the Northern Lights, these are your guys!
