Our Northern Lights tour will take you for a hunt for this spectacular natural phenomenon on Eyjafjallajökull.

During the winter months the Northern lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, can appear on the nights sky and what better way than to explore it on the Volcano that stop the air traffic in 2010. The guides on this tour have much experience in predicting weather conditions and will do their best to provide you the Northern Lights experience you are hoping for.

The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) display various colours depending on recent solar activity and their strength and visibility can not be guaranteed. If the conditions are not favorable the tour is postponed until they improve.
