At Perlan Planetarium you’ll be treated to the spectacular Northern Lights film, Áróra. A collaboration between some of Iceland’s best writers, musicians and photographers, and with 8K video projection and 7.1 surround sound, you’ll be immersed in the magical world of the Northern Lights. Learn about the science behind this amazing natural phenomenon, and also some of the myths and legends that were passed down from generation to generation.

You’ll also have the opportunity to hunt for the Aurora Borealis yourself on the 3.5-hour Northern Lights Tour. With an expert English-speaking guide, you’ll head away from the city lights and into the countryside to maximise your chances of seeing nature’s very own mesmerising light show. Weather forecasts are analysed in detail and the route changes daily in order to follow the lights as they dance across the night sky.

To top off this fantastic combination ticket, you’ll also enjoy the City Sightseeing Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour in Reykjavik. Discover the world’s northernmost capital city from the top deck of our buses with your 24-hour ticket. From the imposing Hallgrímskirkja Church to the picturesque harbour, you can hop off whenever something catches your eye. There’s even a stop at Perlan, where you can watch Áróra!
