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!

Depart from your centrally located Reykjavik hotel aboard a super jeep — a custom-built SUV complete with monster tires that measure upward of 38 inches (95cm) tall — and travel out of the city in search of the lights’ celestial green glow.

Sitting comfortably in the spacious vehicle, keep your eyes on the sky as your guide hunts for the best spot from which to find the lights. The northern lights, otherwise known as the aurora borealis, are caused by magnetic storms that paint the sky in vibrant shades of green, pink and other colors. Your chance of seeing them depends on certain variables (weather, location, chance), so sightings are never guaranteed, but you can rebook your tour at no extra cost (subject to availability) if you don’t see the lights.

Throughout the evening, you’ll learn all about the lights from your guide, including why Iceland is one of the world’s most accessible places to see the natural spectacle.

Your 4-hour tour concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel in Reykjavik.

There needs to be an 6th star for this review. Picked up at 9 pm from our hotel and made our way about 1 hour north of Reykjavik. Our driver was very knowledgeable about northern lights and area. Sorry I don't remember his name as we were very jet lagged. Our first stop with the moon reflecting off the water was beautiful, although a little windy and cold. Just a few lights. He was making some calls to see where the lights were showing up. I think there was 8 of us in the super jeep - quite roomy. We all piled back end and headed up a dirt road near a water fall named Gylmur. We never saw the waterfall but we could hear it in the distance. Absolutely quiet and beautiful sky....then the lights started...they grew and grew until they filled the sky! A huge check mark in this bucket list box. Also got some great pictures - guide was even a help with camera settings. Don't take a BUS or a BOAT....take the Small-Group Northern Lights Tour!! PS the hot chocolate and local cookies were a nice touch. Still dream of the Northern Lights!

this was just brilliant and highly recommend. Our main aim of the trip was the northern lights so decided to pay above the norm for the usual bus tour to ensure we get the best view of the lights.
The super jeep is amazing, as it gets to locations that the bus cannot get to.
there was about 13 of us so it was nice to be in a small group.
We actually saw the best lights ever on the day - it was the day when the city decided to turn off all the lights as the lights were predicted to be the best and it was !!! the location where we stopped was completely empty... there was no one else there!
The guide was brilliant - so kind and friendly.
Had some hot chocolate and some alcohol to keep us warm.
Would suggest if seeing the lights is high on your list pay extra for this tour!!! We stopped about 3 times in three locations all of which were empty and also the guide took pics on his super powerful camera which we then were provided a link to so we could get the awesome pics to print later on.

Great trip - the guides were knowlegble and patient. Especially in helping is set up our cameras in manual mode so we could get some perfect pictures.

We arrived back at the hotel at 2 in the morning not being able to go to sleep still with the memories of an amazing evening!

Absolutely a great trip. Our tour guide Clemmie was awesome! We were like storm chasers in the night driving around looking for clear skies and the Northern Lights! We saw them at three different stops and they were spectacular! Clemmie explained how to use your camera to take pics which really helped a novice like me. And he even knows how to take pics of you with the northern lights in the background. So amazing. GO ON THIS TOUR!
