Throughout the centuries humans have been gazing at the mesmerizing natural phenomenon known as the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis. Each winter Iceland welcomes an increasing number of people, who wish to experience this awe-inspiring and other worldly phenomenon. On this tour you will turn your eyes up to the heavens, to see the dancing colours and majestic shapes flickering across the artic sky.
Your guide will find the best spots, take free photographs so you can keep the memory and tell you all about this natural wonder!. Seeing the Northern Lights is without question, one of the most profound and memorable experiences that you will ever have and is something that everybody should do at least once in their lives.
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. As we cut through the dark terrain, we will pass some of Iceland’s other natural wonders, which your friendly guide will of course point out.
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.
