On the Northern Lights Horizon Mini Bus Tour from Reykjavík we focus on finding the perfect location to witness the magic of the Northern Lights and the dark arctic sky. We go in small groups and our guests get enough time to enjoy the show. To go into the dark, frozen winter night and observe an unbelievable display of color, light and texture, is like waking up in a fairy-tale, full of mystery and magic. We pick you up at your Hotel or Guesthouse, or meet you at the fantastic Aurora Reykjavik Museum. We begin our Northern Lights hunt with a tour through the museum and give you an introduction on the physics behind the Northern Lights and how it is best to photograph them. After the tour of the museum we drive out to the countryside or up to the mountains, away from electric glow and city sounds. You will be able to enjoy the beautiful night sky at the best possible situation, of course depending on weather.

The Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis, are a natural phenomenon visible in the Northern Hemisphere. A unique display of light caused by a particle collision in the magnetic field of the polar cap.


  • Changes to itinerary or cancellation are notified only via email, so be careful to use a functional email and follow it on departure day

  • The lights are a natural phenomenon and beyond our control. They are visible in Iceland from late August through April but visibility is subject to light activity and cloud coverage

  • We cannot guarantee sightings even if the tour is operated

  • If your tour guide confirms that no Northern Lights were seen we invite you on a complimentary retry tour the following evening or next operated departure..

  • For complimentary departures, please contact our head office the day after your tour via email sagatravel@sagatravel.is or call us at +354 558-8888 to confirm a seat on the next available tour. Be sure to contact before 15:00 so we can reserve your seat.

  • Due to weather or road conditions we might have to alter the itinerary, have longer journey time or cancellation

  • Reservation is necessary

  • Please note that we might travel in a pack with other mini buses from our company if more than one car is booked. The reason for this is that in winter time we often have bad road conditions and there is safety in numbers. This also allows for smoother operation on our hot coco and donuts service and assistance with photography.
