Complete a bucket list activity when you book this exciting northern lights tour in a super jeep. Travelers looking to get out of Reykjavik for the best chance of spotting the awe-inspiring aurora borealis should book this tour today. 

Iceland is one of the best destinations for spotting the northern lights. They are only visible in the winter, between September and April, and depend heavily on the weather conditions.

To see the lights, you must get out of cities where light pollution brightens the sky and impacts viewing opportunities. Choosing a tour such as this one that takes you to remote areas with dark skies increases your chances of spotting the stunning aurora. 

Your tour begins in Reykjavik, where your guide will pick you up in a unique super jeep. These luxury vehicles are made for offroad driving and are the perfect transportation for getting into the wild areas of Iceland to see the lights.

The northern lights are highly dependent on the weather and solar activity. Your guides will watch the weather and aurora forecast all evening leading up to your tour to decide where you will be going for the best chances.

Typically, you will drive out of Reykjavik for about an hour to find a lovely, remote area with dark skies. The further from cities you are, the brighter the aurora will be!

As you wait for the show to begin, your guides will provide complimentary hot chocolate to keep you warm. For adults, you can try a local volcanic vodka, a product unique to Iceland.

With some luck, the beautiful aurora borealis will begin to dance overhead. To the naked eye, it is often a light green color, but on very active nights, you can see shades of emerald green, pink, purple, and red. 

A camera can capture the lights better than your eye can. Your guide will be taking lots of photographs of the show, as well as of you and your group, so you can remember this night for years to come. 

If you want to take your own photographs, select the proper settings for your camera. You will need a long shutter speed and a wide aperture. Newer phones also have some of these settings if you did not bring a DSLR camera. 

At the end of the evening, your guide will return your group to Reykjavik. Booking this tour includes a voucher for free admission to Aurora Reykjavik: The Northern Lights Center. 

As the lights are dependent on weather and solar conditions, there is no guarantee they will be spotted during your tour. It is recommended that you book this tour for your first night of vacation, so you have time to make another attempt if your tour is canceled or the lights don’t make an appearance.

Travelers ready to make lifelong memories in Iceland should book this super jeep northern lights hunting tour from Reykjavik today. Check availability now by choosing a date.
