Northern lights Akureyri

Frozen Night, Mystery & Magic

The Northern Lights Akureyri tour is a Northern Lights hunt experience. 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 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 caps.

The Northern Lights Tour from Akureyri departs from Saga Travel Office in Akureyri Center. The Bus departs daily at 21:30 during the Northern Lights season (September 1st – April 15th).
