About The Experience

Join us for one of the most unique and memorable Aurora Borealis - Northern Lights photography you will ever experience. We will take you to personally scouted locations for the best chance to see the northern lights and the nightscape of Iceland. Our northern lights tour depends on the weather forecasts from 3 different sources in the days before your tour to maximize your chance of catching this phenomenon. With us, you will also learn how and where to enjoy and photograph the fabulous nightscapes of Iceland and the colorful dance of the northern lights, one of the foremost wonders of the natural world.

After picking  you up, we head out on the hunt of a lifetime, visiting the best locations within a 45km/27mi radius of Reykjavik. The final choice of location depends on weather, wind, cloud cover etc.

The success of a night’s Aurora hunting depends on many things, so you learn about the required equipment and camera settings, how to prepare for the right moment and judge the strength of the Aurora to make sure you bring home the best possible shot.

Aurora strength depends on solar activity in the days prior to the tour and we do our tours based on those readings. The Icelandic weather is famous for being constantly changing with cloud cover affecting our view of the sky, stars and of course the northern Lights.
That is why we cannot guarantee that we will catch lights, but with us you will maximize your chances and be in the right spot to photograph them when they show up. We do not offer second tries but we have a very high success rate when we run the tours.

If conditions permit, we may also focus on the Milky Way, specific stars, do a bit of light painting and a little trick I know with steel wool…

Experience the emotions that only the northern lights and the Icelandic skies can generate. Come and join us, bring your camera and get the shots of a lifetime!

 

Please note

Tripod is needed to photograph the northern lights. Available if ordered in advance for rent at 24€.

Weatherproof

Northern lights are weather dependent. So please be flexible to go for northern lights hunting one or two nights before or after the date you booked in the event that weather conditions are more favorable.

Skill level

We accept photographers from beginners to professionals. Those that are not photographers and only want to chase the lights with us can get a photo taken of themselves with the northern lights (included in the price).
