Do you need a budget-friendlier Northern Lights tour? We present our aurora hunting tour, by minibus. This is very convenient since it’s operated in small groups, and we give you one extra shot,  in case we see nothing on the first attempt. But of course we only go out if there’re reasons to believe that we might see the auroras. It will be nice if your trip to Iceland is not too brief, so that you can make use of the bonus attempts if needed. The northern lights are a truly beautiful natural phenomenon, and we really want you to see it and enjoy it 🙂 But just so that you manage your expectations correctly, don’t aim for the auroras as your main goal when visiting Iceland. Our nature is genuinely awe-inspiring, with or without the northern lights!

PS: “Disco” is just short for “Discover” … what were you thinking? 🙂
