Know More about this tour

After the complimentary pick up at 9pm at your hotel in Reykjavik we head away from the city lights. The locations visited during the Northern Lights tour vary from day to day depending on weather conditions, but you can expect to travel for up to 1 hour in the super jeep to find the best location. There is free Wifi in the super jeep for all of our customers. The Northern Lights, is a natural phenomenon caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole from September to mid-April when its dark enough and we have a clear conditions. It wouldn't hurt to have a bit of luck.

The benefit of taking the tour in a super jeep is the small group with a maximum of 12 passengers in each car. There is also the flexibility to move quickly if the weather conditions change and we need to go to places that would be impassable in a normal vehicle. We do not let the heavy snow stop us from getting to the best locations to explore the northern lights.

Your driver will give you informative commentary about the Northern Lights and useful tips about how to set your camera to photograph them. It is almost essential to have a tripod if you want to capture the Northern Lights on your camera. If you do not have a tripod, we have some to lend you. If you do not have a camera to capture the lights yourself, don't worry. Your guide has his camera and he takes photographs of the lights. You are welcome to take some of the pictures if you like; we will put them on our Facebook site where you can download them for free.

As a way to help keep you warm, hot chocolate is provided if you get cold exploring the Northern Lights, and of course you are welcome to warm up any time in the super jeep. When the tour comes to an end, we will take you back to your hotel of origination.

  • Well the first night was cancelled due to bad weather which was disappointing, but better they do that than drag you round knowing the Lights aren't going to show. So we booked again for the Sat night, which was the same day as our Golden Circle tour, but the only clear night, so we braced ourselves for a very long day!! There was only 4 of us, which was great, so we had loads of space in the GIANT jeep. A full house might be a bit of a tight squeeze, I think. The first stop was quite close to town, but we did capture a glimmer, but the hill seemed to be in the way and an annoying house with lights on so off we drove into the country. Weird feeling on such a high up vehicle, I have to say, it kind of wobbles about a bit. Gudmann our guide, then drove to this incredible spot, on a high up vantage point overlooking this huge plateau. Straight out of a moon landing film! It was fantastic place, but still only a streak of the Lights, near the horizon.. The moon was a really bright Hunter's full moon, which was incredible, but interfered a bit with the photography. Gudmann helped a bit with settings, but kind of left us to it when he saw we were OK. Quite a quiet, un-assuming man, not saying much unless asked. But actually this was good, you did get to feel the location and the moment more, instead of lots of chatting. Unfortunately, the hot chocolate was not hot! Needs a better flask! Even the added rum didn't quite make up for the temperature and it was very very cold up there!!
    Shame we didn't see a bigger display, but at least we saw a glimpse of the magic.
