Description

Let us take you on a magical journey with a local private driver guide who will be looking out for the lights during your stay. If the conditions are in your favour he will make sure that you don’t miss out on the dancing northern lights. Iceland lies within the most active region of the Northern Lights Oval and the spectular phenomena are potentially visible dependent on atmospheric conditions as well as solar activity and are only seen during the dark, winter months.
