What You Can Expect

Small-Group Northern Lights Tour from Reykjavik by Super Jeep

Get off the beaten track and search for the northern lights in a custom-built super jeep!

Leave your centrally located Reykjavik hotel by ‘super jeep,’ a uniquely designed SUV mounted on monster tires that measure upwards of 38 inches (95cm) tall. Relax in the spacious seats as you travel out of the city and into the countryside to hunt for the famous northern lights.

The northern lights, or aurora borealis, are caused by magnetic storms that graffiti the sky with vibrant colors. Depending on certain variables—weather, location, chance—you could strike gold, or rather yellowish green and occasionally crimson, but there is never guaranteed admission to this light show. Throughout the evening, your guide will constantly be on the lookout for the best places to spot them, and your jeep will be able to take you to those hard-to-reach places that standard tour coaches can’t access.

In between stargazing, learn all about Iceland's northern lights from your guide. Iceland is known as one of the most accessible places in the world to see the spectacle, home to vast swathes of remote countryside far from urban lights that can often hinder sightings of the lights. Located at extreme latitude, the country is close to the Earth’s magnetic poles, meaning that when the solar winds collide with the magnetic forces, surreal ribbons of color are etched across the crystal-clear night skies. Have your camera ready to capture the phenomenon!

After roughly three hours of exploring the countryside on the lookout for the lights, travel back to Reykjavik and finish your experience with a drop-off at your hotel.


Please note: If you don’t see the northern lights on the night of your tour, you can rebook with your guide at no extra cost.
