TERMS: Flight not included. Tour requires an arrival into Keflavik International Airport (KEF) and departure from Keflavik International Airport (KEF). Airport transfers are included.

The Northern Lights, or the Aurora Borealis, are a natural phenomenon visible in the Northern Hemisphere. A unique display of light caused by a particle collision in the magnetic field of the polar caps. They are visible in Iceland from September through April but visibility is subject to Northern Lights activity and cloud coverage.

Please note, we cannot guarantee sightings even if the northern lights tour is operated. We can only hope for the best that you get to experience this natural wonder!

To attempt to witness the Northern Lights you will need four things to be in order. You need to be relatively close to the North Pole, you will need a dark night and you will need relatively clear skies, however clouds don’t necessarily mean no sightings. Finally you will need some sort of solar activity and solar winds as the Lights are caused by a collision of particles from the sun with gaseous particles from the earth.

It is recommended to stay in Iceland at least 7-nights to get the best chance at witnessing the Northern Lights. Some hotels will even make courtesy calls to your room if you would like to be notified when the lights are out!

What is the difference between a Hopper Tour and an Escorted Tour?

See the full blog here

Do I need a passport?

Yes! All US citizens must have a passport that remains valid 6 months beyond the dates of your trip. All non-US citizens must check with their local consulate for documentation requirements. If you do not have a passport, one may be obtained through your local post office, which also offers expedited processing. ALL NAMES PROVIDED TO TENON TOURS MUST BE AS THEY APPEAR ON YOUR PASSPORT (first and last names only). You may want to make a copy of your passport and leave it at home with a friend of family.

Is it safe to drink the local water?

It is extremely safe to drink the fresh local water in Iceland (it’s actually some of the cleanest in the world!). In fact, we recommend you bring an empty water bottle with you as you travel, to help avoid the cost of expensive bottled water.

What type of accommodations do you use for a Hopper tour?

With a commitment to immersing travelers in the culture of each city, Tenon selects accommodations that enhance a traveler’s experience. Accommodations are carefully chosen based on location and quality in an effort to meet our travelers’ expectations and ensure satisfaction. Hotel locations provide easy accessibly to attractions, restaurants, pubs and public transportation. Whether it’s a boutique hotel or a large chain property, our hotels will always have a quality rating of three or four stars and a TripAdvisor rating of three or higher. Tenon offers a wide variety of hotels in each of the cities on our Hopper Tours. Hotels are subject to availability and the discretion of Tenon Tours. Hotels of the same class not listed below may also be substituted. Travelers’ exact hotel assignments will be issued with travel documents 7 to 10 days prior to departure.

When will I be able to check into my hotel/hostel/B&B in each city/town?

Typically, check-in is 3:00pm, although many places will allow you to check in earlier once rooms have been cleaned and inspected. Luggage can be stored in a secure area for early arrivals.
