We will collect you from your Reykjavik hotel in one of our custom-built super jeeps and go in search of the Northern Lights. As we leave the bright lights of the city behind our expert northern lights guide, will tell you everything that you need to know about this natural miracle, as we head into the darkness for the adventure of a lifetime.

Escape the light pollution in the city, and let's follow the cloud forecast to the northern lights.

The reason we use super jeeps is they give us the flexibility to travel away from the beaten path and reach locations which the big tourist busses cannot get to: giving us the best chance to see all the wonders which the Northern Lights have to offer. We will also try to travel away from the big crowds, so you can enjoy the Aurora in all its stunning serenity and glory, without noisy tour groups spoiling it. Once we find a spot, we will warm you up with hot chocolate and the adventurous amongst you can even add some Icelandic Brennivin to theirs. Our guides understand the importance of this experience and take photos every time we see the northern lights: guaranteeing that you get your picture taken with the aurora.

Seeing the Northern Lights in the flesh is a miraculous experience, which will stay with you for the rest of your life. Language does not do them justice: the Northern Lights are ineffable and as close to the divine that the natural world gets. So book this magical experience today and search for the auroras in a super jeep.

The success of our Northern Lights Explorer tour is heavily dependent on the prevailing weather conditions, so we reserve the right to cancel departure until 18:15 on the day of the tour. If the tour happens and we aren’t lucky enough to see the Northern Lights we offer our clients the opportunity to join a Minibus Northern Lights tour free of charge. Please remember that you have to contact us to re-book your second tour.

Fantastic Northern Lights Tour

5 by Faye & Tom 2018-02-04
We went on a super jeep tour with extreme Iceland and could not have had a better experience. The guide “Gummi” was fantastic! Very funny and approachable. The super jeep was great and enabled us to go off roading which was so much fun! It also meant that we got away from the other big crowds that were on tours. The photos taken were fantastic and they give plenty of opportunities for you to have your photo taken, always asking if you want another. The hot chocolate and biscuits were a welcome treat and were very tasty. I think it is fantastic that the photographs are included and you don’t have to pay extra, it’s just the icing on the cake! As an added bonus we got to see the lights and they were amazing.

Great times and saw the lights!

Extreme Iceland did a fantastic job in getting us in position to see the Northern Lights. The Super Jeep (actually a HUGE tricked out Mercedes Van!) was incredible and unstoppable. When we went on roads that said Impassable I was a little worried but the vehicle did not falter at all. We ended up on a bluff overlooking a desolate valley and the viola the lights - wow an incredible experience. Highly recommend the trip and the company.

"Our tour guy was very nice, picked us up fairly on time, told nice stories about the northern light and he was funny. So we finally saw the northern light, it was beautiful and worth the wait, our tour guy set up the camera and took pictures for us group by group, we were told that the pictures will be posted within the next day or two. The night ended with a cup of hot chocolate which really warmed us up. The only disappointment was that The pictures my friend and I took were never posted under the Dropbox we were told, it’s been more than a week since our tour, we saw some group pictures posted but ours were not there. It was a huge disappointment and I still wonder why the pictures were not there. We even checked the day before and after, none."

This was an incredible experience to see the Northern lights. At first it was cancelled for a few days due to weather - so we highly recommend if you have a multi day trip, try to get this in earlier in the week so if its cancelled you have other nights to bounce it to. After a few cancellations we got a clear sky - although there was an almost full moon that made the night sky quite bright. We went out with our tour guide Gummy who was just a fun dude. We waited for about 15 min and then it started... like magic. Started small then spread across the sky. Gummy told us it may be 15 min, but ended up being over an hour and a half of dancing northern lights with a very bright moon. Very very cool. My buddies and I (all former US Military) were in awe, giggling like school children ha ha. Very nice - - oh and the shot of Brennivín in the hot chocolate - - great top off. Loved every minute of this.
