Our Passion for Iceland

The Aurora Nights team of experts never tires of praising Iceland Northern Lights holidays as a superb way to combine the experience of the natural light show with some truly remarkable landscapes. Iceland is a volcanic island and everywhere you look you will see lava flows and volcanoes, as well as a healthy sprinkling of glaciers, geysers, geothermal natural pools and magnificent waterfalls.

Contact one of our Iceland experts to find the best tailor made tour for you so you get to see the Iceland Northern Lights.

Iceland by Night

For a truly magical show you cannot beat the northern lights. Iceland is one of our favourite destinations to visit with travellers who want to experience this phenomenon.

Viewing the Aurora Borealis

If you want to come with Aurora Nights to see the Iceland northern lights then we would recommend that you choose a period between October to March inclusive and a location that has consistently clear skies

We suggest you join us in our specially selected locations that are far from artificial light and that are peacefully isolated. In our experience this offers our clients the optimum conditions for watching the show.

Southern Iceland Northern Lights

Some of our tours focus on the southern region of the country where there is a high chance of spotting the northern lights. Iceland promotes this region with statistics that record sightings of up to 80% across 3 nights.

The Valley of Porsmork

With its frequently clear skies, Porsmork is one of our recommended destinations for viewing the northern lights. Iceland short breaks to this valley rarely disappoint.

Surrounded by 3 glaciers that generate cool air currents which hold the clouds at bay, Porsmork has always boasted stunning Aurora displays. Our experts have consulted with locals who recommend SuperJeep drives into the valley to see the lights even when the skies further south are cloudy

Our portfolio includes an extra cottage in this Porsmork area which enhances the opportunities for sightings of the Iceland northern lights.

We have 2 new superb SuperJeep hunts for the Northern Lights. Iceland has always had a good reputation for its Aurora and combining them with a superjeep trip up to the top of Eyjafjallajökull Volcano to hunt for them ontop of the Glacier is the most exciting activity. Even if the Iceland Northern Lights don’t show you will have an incredible evening gazing at thousands of stars above you – crystal clear in the darkness. The snow reflects the moonlight and the tiny lights of the villages can be seen well below you.

Iceland by Day

Super Jeep Tours in Porsmork Valley

Our holidays will keep you busy during the days following the viewings of the northern lights. Iceland has dramatic terrain that offer visitors plenty of adventures.

We have spent years cultivating our relationships with local guides to give our clients the ultimate SuperJeep tours in this area. The passion of these guides, who have lived all their lives in this area, is infectious. Many of our guests have caught their enthusiasm and tell us over and over again how their guides went above and beyond to guarantee that the day’s adventures were beyond expectations.

Whether they take you to the top of a glacier, behind a waterfall, on the black volcanic sands or river fjording you will not be disappointed!

Blue Lagoon

After final view of the Iceland northern lights, we recommend that you leave some time the following day on your way back to the airport for the Blue Lagoon.

Blue Lagoon is a geothermal lake which in places is hotter than your bath. The silica mud is not only good for your skin, but also turns the water to a stunning bright blue colour.

Here you can easily spend 2 hours relaxing or having one of the many spa treatments. From personal experience we would recommend the in-water massages – truly heaven on a lilo and a great way to end your Iceland Northern Lights adventure

Our Iceland Northern Lights Trip Accommodations

You shouldn’t assume that remote and isolated equals basic and rugged accommodation. We have carefully selected accommodations for our portfolio that will guarantee your Iceland northern lights trip will be based in stylish and comfortable properties where excellent fresh organic and regional food is provided by the local friendly and warm people.

Hotel Ranga

Well known for its ideal position for sightings of the northern lights, Iceland’s iconic Hotel Ranga also boasts an excellent restaurant and hot tubs. We chose this property because it offers a perfect base to explore Eyjafjallajökull Volcano, the dramatic Porsmork Valley or the black volcanic beaches on one of our Super Jeep tours. Our guests also have easy access to other activities such as glacier hiking and snowmobiling.

Boutique Wilderness Cabin

If you crave peaceful solitude from your Iceland Northern Lights holiday then we can offer you our exclusive and private wilderness boutique cabin. Here your guide will cook delicious meals such as smoked organic lamb and then withdraw to let you enjoy the peace on your own, surrounded by the stillness and beauty of the Icelandic night.

Hotel Laekur

The recently opened Hotel Laekur is a converted farm run by a delightful family which offers personal and informal service combined with simple but delicious country food cooked to traditional recipes. Needless to say it has a great location for the Aurora Borealis and even has a dedicated viewing window for the Northern Lights. Iceland’s natural phenomenon could not be experienced in greater comfort!

Hotel Ion

As remote as it gets, the very recently opened Hotel Ion is situated in a stunning location amongst a lava flow close to the “must see” Golden Circle with its erupting geyser and mini Rift Valley. Close to the original site of the Viking parliament and the mighty Gullfoss waterfall, Hotel Ion offers our clients the perfect base for an Iceland Northern Lights experience.
