View the Northern Lights from the comfort of a Super Jeep!
Take a walk on the wild side and upgrade your standard northern lights hunt to one where you carve through the Icelandic countryside in a mighty super jeep!
Everyone is flocking to Iceland during the winter in search of the Aurora Borealis. This fascinating natural phenomenon otherwise known as the Northern Lights, is one of the most hypnotic sights you will ever come across during your Icelandic holiday. The dancing colors and shapes in the dark arctic sky have to be seen to be believed.
Firstly, your expert Northern Lights guide will pick you up either at your hotel or at one of the many pick up points in Reykjavik (Pick up is included in the price). We will be traveling in an custom-built 4x4 super jeep.
On the search for the Northern Lights you will travel through some of Iceland's most spectacular natural sights by night time with a very informative guide. The best part: The super jeep gives us flexibility to go off of the beaten path, where big tour buses can not reach giving us a better chance to enjoy the Northern Lights away from the big crowds.
We have an astronomical telescope with us on the tours so you can also enjoy the wonders of the night sky more closely. In the cold night, there is nothing like some hot chocolate to keep warm and the brave ones can even add some Icelandic Brennivín to theirs!
Our guides take photos every time the Northern lights are spotted so you can be sure to get your picture taken with the Aurora.
The natural phenomenon that is also known as the aurora or the aurora borealis. These fascinating streaks of colour that stretch across the night sky are formed by interactions between charged solar particles and the magnetic layer around the planet.
Pick-up can take up to 30 minutes. Please be ready at your pick up point with your voucher, either in digital or printed form.
Dress appropriately for the weather baring in mind that you will be out late at night so the temperatures can drop quite low. Further into winter you should also expect the possibility of snow or Ice so it’s important to wear sturdy shoes.
You will be traveling by Super Jeep. There are no toilet facilities onboard but you should expect stops for anyone who requires such facilities.
