Northern Lights Photo Tours

Northern Lights (Aurora) photo tours & workshops

The Northern lights or Aurora Borealis are a spectacular solar light show that can be seen very well from Iceland. Auroras can be photographed from late August – early April. Auroras cannot be seen in the Icelandic Summer! The Northern lights love Iceland, but clouds also love Iceland. If you are planning a trip to see the Northern Lights, your chances of seeing auroras is partly luck, partly being in the right place and mostly the duration of your stay.

Northern Light photography assistance

All our photo tours include photography assistance. All our guides are experienced night photographers, so you are more likely to get the photography results you want.

Aurora Probability guide

This is based on being on a multi-day photo tour to Jökulsarlon (not Reykjavik – if you are staying there – halve the probability).
