What you'll do

This is an educational and visual experience of the Northern Lights in Iceland with a virtual tour of some of the most celebrated places in Iceland. I'll share copious images and short videos while teaching you the intricacies of Icelandic nature and the science of the Northern Lights in an easy to understand way.

Via zoom I will introduce you to me, your experienced guide. I'll then invite you on a tour with me of the Golden Circle. This will include images, videos and fun facts around erupting geysers, thunderous waterfalls and splitting tectonic plates.
After showcasing the best of Iceland during the day, we'll skip to the night time exploits, namely, hunting the Northern Lights.
In this section I'll show lots of locally shot videos and pictures while giving a good explanation of this magical phenomenon. I'll also share some hints and tips for find them for those of you wishing to visit some day soon in person.

You will walk away from this tour having learned about our unique dynamic earth. You will be awed by how our atmosphere continuously protects us while giving off an unintended light show as a by-product. And if I've done my job right, you'll have fallen in love with Iceland and all its unique characteristics.

Hi everyone!

My name is Ryan and I am the Co-Founder of one of the highest rated tour companies in Iceland, Hidden Iceland. We run glacier tours, ice cave trips and hunt for the Northern Lights when the sky is clear.

Although I grew up in Scotland, I now call Iceland home. Having travelled to all 7 continents while guiding around the world, I found Iceland to be more unique than anywhere else I've ever been. Where else can you see moving glaciers on top of active volcanoes under the Northern Lights?

I am a qualified Glacier Guide and Wilderness First Responder and have guided tours in Iceland for the past 5 years. I'm most at home when talking about the science of it all having minored in Physics and Maths at University and just being a self-imposed geek for all things nature.

I hope I get to share my passion with you all!

Ryan did a great job showing us Iceland and the northern lights. His presentation was thoughtful, educational and engaging. After this experience, I definitely want to go to Iceland and see the many things it has to offer.

I'm an Airbnb employee and have done several online experiences -- this one was educational and transports you to Iceland. Ryan has a great story and the experience got me excited to check this one off my bucket list. Beautiful visuals.
