Northern Lights - Private tour


CERTIFIED OPERATOR     Tour operator: Basecamp Iceland     3 hours     Travel method: Jeep / 4x4

The northern lights are formed by a complex display of light emitted due to the collisions of oxygen and nitrogen atoms and molecules in the Earth's atmosphere with electrons released from the sun's atmosphere during geomagnetic storms. The lights are notoriously unpredictable and even with the most high tech meteorological equipment and real time solar wind data we might only get a few minutes notice if something is about to happen. Iceland is however one of the best locations in the world for spotting the lights and we take our chances based on measurements from a network of magnetometers located worldwide and the most recent cloud coverage data from the Icelandic Met office. The hunt for the lights is best done in co-operation with trusted colleges and friends spread around, notifying each other of any sightings and conditions and we make full use of our luxurious Land Rover Discovery vehicles so that we can maximizes our chances, stay flexible and to get away from the flashing cameras, crowds and paved streets to enjoy this night out far away from traffic and city lights. Please note: Unfortunately we can not guarantee a successful sighting of the Northern Lights but we can guarantee that you are welcome to reserve a seat on the next available tour to continue the search - for free. Please also note: We really want you to focus on enjoying the lights without worrying about your camera so we will try our best to take your picture with the northern lights in the background but we will also gladly assist you with your own camera if you like. Make sure your camera offers a shutter speed up to 15 sec, high ISO (800+) and aperture between f/1.4 and f/4.0
