Nature Baths and Northern Lights from Lake Myvatn
Feel free to contact us
The experience of seeing the Northern Lights dancing in the sky is an experience no one ever forgets!
On this Private Super Jeep tour we drive out into the darkness for a unique experience in search of the incredible light show by Aurora Borealis. The lake Mývatn area sometimes referred to as the capital of Northern lights is a great spot to see the Aurora Borealis because of the frequency of sightings and also because there is a vast wilderness with minimal light pollution.
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 location for the tours are not pre-organized, our experienced guides will bring you to a location to the best of their knowledge that maximizes our chances of catching the lights.
During the winter months from mid-September to March, when there is complete darkness in the sky, we get the chance to see the awesome display of Northern Lights.
Please Note: We do not leave town if weather conditions are not right and reschedule for another night. It is highly recommended to book the tour on the first night(s) of your stay in Iceland to maximize the chance of catching the lights.
