Which tour operators offer Iceland northern lights tours?

Lighting up the skies above Iceland from September until April, the northern lights are one of the biggest draws of tourists to the island nation.

The darker the skies, the better you’ll be able to view the lights. Iceland’s winter sees darkness the majority of the day, so the best time to view the lights would be around the longest day of the year - 21 December.
