Visitors from the world over flock to Iceland to catch a glimpse of the elusive northern lights. With this tour, increase your chances of seeing the spectacle when you trade in the usual plodding tour bus for an SUV specially fitted to traverse the rugged Icelandic countryside. Your guide takes your small group to hard-to-reach places in the service of helping you see the aurora borealis.
  • Chase the northern lights through Icelandic countryside from a "super Jeep"
  • Travel with a guide who knows where to see the northern lights
  • If you don’t see the lights, rebook with your operator for no extra cost
  • Hassle-free round-trip transportation from central Reykjavik
What to Expect
Meet in central Reykjavik and hop on board a "super Jeep," which seats no more than 15 and has monster tires that measure upward of 38 inches (95 centimeters) tall. Once settled in, travel out of the city in search of the northern lights. Your guide takes stock of weather reports and other variables to find the best locations from which to view the lights. Drive along the Icelandic countryside to secluded locations buses can’t get to, including mountaintops. Listen as your guide tells you about the science behind the northern lights phenomenon, and why Iceland is one of the world’s most accessible places to see it. Stop for photos ops if you choose. Your guide will take photos and show you how to set your camera to capture the lights. Enjoy a snack of biscuits, hot chocolate, and Icelandic liquor. Your evening tour concludes with a drop-off back in central Reykjavik.

The potential to see the lights was fair-good, as it had been the previous 5 nights, which I did see them. However, the guide/driver decided to "try a new place" and drove us around for 2 hours, using her GPS. Never did see the lights, drove a total of 3 ½ hours, stopping only

The Jeep is amazing and country side was beautiful. Except we didn't hunt Aurora in the right spot, the driver was inept and did not know much about Aurora. Pictures which were taken on site never were uploaded.
