* Learn a bit about this atmospheric phenomenon from a knowledgeable local guide.

* Enjoy the solitude of the Icelandic countryside.


The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, occur in the very north of the northern hemisphere when solar winds disturb charged particles in the magnetosphere.

These disturbances lead to a dazzling array of colours ranging from red and pink to yellow, green and blue. Few places on earth are better for seeing this incredible phenomenon than from Iceland.

So join one of our experienced and knowledgeable guides as we head out into the wilderness in order to try and catch a glimpse of this incredible occurrence.

Depending on the time of year, we will leave Reykjavik, the Icelandic capital, between 8:00 and 10:00 in the evening and head away from the light pollution of the city.

We will then spend the next three to four hours watching the night sky awaiting the Northern Lights to appear. Please remember, that they do not always do so and there is no guarantee that we will successfully see them.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
