Tour description

Escape the reach of tour buses and seek the celestial green glow of the northern lights on a 4-hour Iceland tour in the comfort of a ‘super jeep,’ a spacious SUV that’s designed to travel on the rugged Icelandic terrain with ease. Learn about the natural phenomenon on your way out of Reykjavik, and venture deep into the countryside to find the best spots for viewing the lights. If you're not lucky enough to see the lights on the night of your tour, simply re-book with the tour operator at no extra cost.This tour is a small group tour, ensuring a more personalized experience.

Depart from a centrally located Reykjavik pick up point 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 to Reykjavik.
