Why we love this tour
Northern Lights Super Jeep Small Group Setting
Each winter we are welcoming an increased number of people coming to Iceland in search of the famous Aurora Borealis. This fascinating natural phenomenon, otherwise known as the northern lights, is one of the most mesmerizing sights you will ever come across in your life. The dancing colors and shapes in the dark arctic sky will simply leave you awestruck.
You will be picked up at your selected pick up location in a custom-built 4×4 super jeep by our expert northern lights guide. We leave the lights of the city behind and head into the darkness for our adventure. On the search for the northern lights, we might travel through some of Iceland’s most spectacular natural sights without knowing but your guide is sure to let you know what the night is hiding. The super jeep gives us the flexibility to go off of the beaten path to locations the big buses can not reach. Giving us a greater chance to enjoy the northern lights and the wonders of the night sky without the discomfort of big crowds. 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.
As the success of the Northern Lights Explorer tour is heavily dependent on weather conditions, we reserve the right to cancel departures until 18:15 on the day of the tour. If the tour goes ahead and no northern lights are seen we offer clients the chance to join another evening’s departure free of charge upon availability.

What should I bring?
Remember to bring: Warm outdoor clothing, waterproof jacket and pants, headwear and gloves. Good warm shoes and wooly socks. Northern Lights tours require you to watch the skies and that means you will be outside at night in Iceland in winter. Dress warmly, there is no such thing as too many layers of clothes on our Aurora Tours.
