The northern lights are a natural phenomenon. Sightings cannot be guaranteed even if the tour is operated. We decide after 17:00 every day if conditions are favorable to operate the tour and post on our Facebook page and send an email to all major tour desk and hotel receptions if we are not going ahead with the tour. In general, there is around 50% chance to see the lights. Those who are booked on the tour can call us or ask at nearest tour or hotel reception whether we are operating the tour or not.

If no Northern Lights are seen on your Deluxe tour you are welcome to join the Northern light Bus tour on another night for free. If no northern lights are seen for the second or third time we offer passengers a voucher for a free trip that is valid for three years. This voucher is not transferable. If you book a Northern Lights tour, but conditions do not allow us to run the tour during your stay, we refund the ticket in full.

Please note that if the tour is not operated or if no northern lights are seen, the tour must be rescheduled either by phone: +354 551 1166 or by e-mail:  info@sternatravel.comtours are not rescheduled automatically.
