See what everyone is flocking to Iceland for with this super jeep tour where you hunt for the Northern Lights. This excursion should not be missed by those seeking the world’s most ethereal phenomenon, and a personal experience while doing so.

This tour begins with your pickup in Reykjavík. Due to the limited number of seats on the super jeep, there will be few other guests, so you are sure to be able to get enough attention from your guide.

The off-road capabilities of this vehicle also mean that you will be able to cross rivers, rocky roads and mountain passes to find the most remote and peaceful places to marvel over the lights when they arrive. This means you won’t be sharing your vantage point with dozens of other people from the larger tour buses.

Where you set off depends entirely on the weather. Your guide will be following a cloud and aurora forecast to determine the best direction, something they are very practised in. As they drive to the most hopeful locations, they will tell you about the surrounding areas, being experts on Iceland’s history and landscapes.

The Northern Lights can appear anywhere that it is clear and dark enough, so keep your eyes out of the windows as you travel; your guide will be maintaining a keen look at the skies, but any help will be appreciated. As soon as they start to show, you’ll find a suitable place to pull up, so that you can properly marvel at them outside.

Watching the dancing auroras is an awe-inspiring experience, and something all should try to do at least once. It is the top of most people’s bucket lists for a reason. Your guide, more than just an expert on Iceland and the Northern Lights, is also able to help you with your camera settings so that you can capture them properly.

Don’t miss this super jeep excursion to witness the aurora borealis. Check availability by choosing a date.
